Perfect Invitations

Kasey is amazing! She is very creative and does not make the same invitation. Kasey was flexible with me giving her ideas or color schemes I had and she worked her magic. Kasey sent a proof of the save the date magnet and invitation that gave us easy access to edit or make changes. The invitations meshed well with our rustic barn venue and the colors. Highly recommend!!

DBY/ Kasey

Professional, classy, unique, superior customer service, and incredibly accommodating. We found DBY at a Bridal Expo. From day one meeting, we knew we were in good hands. Kasey walked us through every step, listened to our needs and wants, and gave great suggestions. Together, we made a great plan. Our invitations were gorgeous and unique. They also helped us with a multitude of unique wedding goodies. Presentation and Professionalism A++! DBY set the tone from the beginning to end as nothing but perfect. Perfection is what we received! Highly recommend!!!

Our wedding was at the Chicago Cultural Center in Feb 2018, and it was absolutely amazing thanks to Kasey and her team! With 15+ years of experience in this industry, she knows everyone and everything in the entire greater Chicagoland area. Not only is she quite literally a wealth of knowledge, but her negotiating power is much stronger than yours can ever be as a new bride. She leverages her knowledge and relationships wholeheartedly for you. She is hardworking and loves what she does, which really shows in how much effort she puts into everything she touches. Her fee paid itself (and then some) in what she saved us from other vendors.

No doubt Kasey is worth it alone from the financial aspect and an asset during the planning process, but come the day-of, her talents truly shine! All the months of planning hinge on ONE day, so there is a lot of pressure to execute and here she just thrives! I was able to enjoy literally every minute of our wedding day - my mom and I didn't have to do anything! Kasey ran the entire behind-the-scenes show. She also made sure that our vision that we had worked on for months was executed exactly as planned by the other vendors involved. She really made our vision come to life in a way that I will forever be grateful for. A wedding day is a big investment and I cannot imagine who else I could possibly trust to do this (again, I am a type A person so it was difficult to hand over the reigns). I am eternally grateful for all of your hard work on our behalf Kasey, I cannot thank you enough!

Kasey Larson with DBY invitations did a fantastic job with all the details associated with the anniversary we worked together last Saturday. Everything from the table settings, to the menus, it all was well thought out and very original. We would definitely recommend Kasey with your future event! We look forward to seeing her work again soon.
