Is there anything nice you can say to a client to let them know it isn't a good idea to use a family member who likes to bake for your wedding cake? or do I just let it go?

I had a bride cancel a tasting when her dad got sick and then decide that she would try to do it herself to save money.  Mind you, she was a pharmacist with no cake experience at all and her cake was going to have a gazebo and a fountain and all kinds of elevated stuff.  Some of the stuff she wanted to use was discontinued.  It was going to be a huge headache and I was charging extra for having to run down the discontinued stuff anyway. I offered to do a less intense version of what she wanted to help save money but she opted to try to go it alone.  I told her "No problem!  Good Luck!" and I meant it.  I have to say, I wished I could have been a fly on the wall those two weeks before the wedding.
