I’ve never fired anyone, but I have dumped people before.  It’s really the same.  You have to be honest; tell them why it didn’t work out without lying or leaving out any details.

Just tell her that you know how busy she is and you don’t want to add to that, since the deadline has come and gone. You also have a lot of stress with the wedding planning, so you’re just going to get your paper from elsewhere– at least the paper you need sooner rather than later. Maybe ask her if she’ll make you a set of thank-you cards for after the wedding. Just so you’re not completely getting rid of her…

Just tell her you’re sorry you burdened her with an extra job when she’s so busy, and you have gone to another business to get your stds. Thank her for being willing to do it, but remind her it’s obvious she is too busy.

anon1722:  I don’t think this is really “firing” her. She basically opted out of the job by not meeting your deadline. 

I would just gently send her a message that says something like, “Hey xxx, thanks so much for offering to help me with all my paper needs. Sounds like you have been really busy and I don’t want to weigh you down. I have ordered my STDs from xxx. If you think you might have time to help me with anything else, please let me know, because I would still love to order from you.”
