I was thrown by her rudeness and stupidly agreed to do this job for practically nothing and now I am dreading the thought of it. I AM A MORON!
Lesson will be learned by this mess.....
I would tell the lady who is throwing it to find someone else. If you don't want to make waves say that you've never made them and don't want to disappoint them, or just say that you don't like the hostesses attitude. The rude lady still has a few weeks to find someone else. When she realizes how much it will cost her, she should come back to you as the the sweetest lady in the world. This seems to be a case of "no good deed goes unpunished". If things get too bad and you still agree to do it just think of it as a learning experience and think of it as volunteer work if you don't make a profit or lose money in preparation.
Maybe you misinterpreted her reaction, maybe she is just one of those people who HATE Facebook, and her anger was more at that than at you. If she is just a jerk try to get out of it now. If the bride is a good customer and values your service you won't lose her,. she probably will understand if this lady has a bad reputation with dealing with people.
