So tell her “thanks for the offer, but I’m excited to work on the centerpieces myself.” This is your wedding, you should speak up and get involved in everything you can.

raziel1687:  Instead of looking at what you didn’t do, focus on what you did do and the end goal! You will be married to the love of your life.

Also keep in mind that rich people have contracted out the tasks of their wedding forever.Think of it as practicing to be rich.

There is no law saying that a bride must do a million DIY’s.

raziel1687:  To me it sounds like you’ve done plenty!

I didn’t do a lot of DIY for my wedding (because it was DW) and I was happy with the choice.  It reduced the amount of stress and also reduced the overall focus on “stuff” which is not really what the wedding is about. 

If you want to work on a few personal touches without spendign more money, what about spending time on your vows, choosing readings, your thank you speach to guests, or choosing meaningful music?  Those are very personalizing touches that don’t cost a thing but do take quite a bit of effort.

You did about a million times more than I did!  Then again, I had zero interest in DIY.  I did our invitations online and addressed them myself, and I made our program (basically because I didn’t trust anyone else to do it correctly).  But I think that was it!
