DBY events room shot

DBY events and invitations is a full-service boutique studio. We help provide every event the perfect beginning; when our clients’ details meet our experience, anything is possible.

We pride ourselves on following the ‘perfect events every time’ philosophy, which includes assisting in every aspect of the event planning, or only those that our clients need the most help with. We work with the individuality and budget of every client and combine it with the tone for each event to transform it all into a one-of-a-kind celebration.

We are a small, very client focused boutique studio in Schaumburg. We have almost a decade of experience with our client services, and have satisfied hundreds of brides through the years. We work within the ethics of the Association of Bridal Consultants, and are members of ISES (the International Special Events Society.) Our planning is entirely fee based, and we do not accept commissions or monetary referral reciprocation from our vendors, allowing us to foster long term relationships with quality members of the bridal industry.

Our ultimate goal is what we assume to be your goal: a perfect and enjoyable event for you and your guests. We treat every wedding and celebration as an individual and unique experience, allowing you to be a guest, instead of ‘working’ it. We organize the day into a reasonable schedule, and meet with the vendors to ensure their collaboration. We are there every step along the way, and guarantee that your details will be carried out in a professional and reliable manner. Your happiness and perfect event mean everything to us, and it is those hundreds of past brides that still make it a thrill to come into our studio every day. If you would like to engage DBY events, we can’t wait love to work with you. Call us today and schedule a consultation to discuss your vision – we would love to make it a reality!
