I'm a graphic designer. I created all the print pieces for my wedding, spending weeks perfecting them all. They were a hit, and the wedding went great.
My best friend is also getting married and she asked me to design her invitation suite. I thought it was weird she didn’t have me design the day of pieces as well but I figured she must’ve just purchased them cheaply or something.
I showed up to the wedding, a wedding where I am the maid of honor, and my jaw dropped. Every graphic and custom print piece I created for MY wedding was ripped off and remade by another designer. The sad thing is I would’ve helped her remake them had she just asked. Sometimes, even your best friend can be a client from hell.
