I’ll echo the PP’s and say that this is why I do everything myself. I’ve always lived by “if I want something done right, I’ll do it myself”. Especially when it comes to our weddings, no-one cares as much about the details as we do.

@wannabe-diy-bride: I’m sorry that happened! Wasting time and money all at once is very frustrating, especially when working with a tight budget like so many of us are.
I never thought I was a control freak until I started my DIY projects. My Maid and Matron of honor kept bugging me to let them help. So, I picked gluing already pre cut paper flowers onto the RSVP cards for one and creating mulch-dimentional flowers from pre cut flowers. When they were finished I looked at them and was horrified at how sloppily put together they were. This was definitely when I decided to do EVERY project myself from now on!
Bees who are considering letting your friends help with you DIY projects, do yourself a favor and politely decline! It will be way more of a headache than a help. And I consider myself a very laid back person normally.
