I’ll add to that:

Don’t make changes to the brides plans, however slight.  (This seems obvious, but with close friends and family members, boundaries can be overlooked, and they think they are mkaing things easier.)

If she wants pink flowers on the tables and ivory flowers in the arch….don’t assume you can switch it!  (venting, venting)

This might fall under the listen to the bride thing…

I didn’t really have anyone help with my DIY tasks, so I can’t really relate to that side of things, but I would say to brides that if you ask your friends to do something, don’t change it after they’ve spent a ton of time and effort on it and then not even say thank you. /vent.

That’s why when it comes to DIY I’d rather just pay to get things done or really handle it on my own. Its hard for me to ask for help because I feel like I”m being a burden. Add to that if I get disappointed if it doesn’t come out right (in spite of detailed directions) I just can’t be bothered.
