DIY Weddings for Brides on a Budget with Debi Lilly

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Ever on-trend for events high and low, Chicago's darling event planner, Debi Lilly who's ever on-trend for innovative parties high and low is now going to be opening A Perfect Event in the afternoon on January 21 and showing you how to create a fabulous DIY wedding for less.

With the help of the interactive Smilebooth, beauty by Rodan+Fields, Debi will walk you through creating an exceptional experience for your guests through photos, all skincare treatments that will aide a bride's skin.

Then she's going to school you on table vignetting inspired by the S/S 2012 collections of Chloe (eyelet and lace), Dries Van Noten (19th century wallpapers) and Dolce & Gabbana (bright, colorful 50s patterns).

If that weren't a full plate already, each table will be set with vintage and new linens, china, crystal, silverware, flea market finds turned sparkling new romantic decor, custom menu cards, placecards, favors for inspiration. Florals topics will touch on gorgeous and explain the Debi Lilly for Safeway/Dominicks arrangements available coast to coast.

Lastly, [and our favorite part] you'll explore the Cake Bar featuring cakes of every shape, size and style, learn about creampuff topiaries, and dabble in the French Lemonade bar concepts. Whew! And it's all DIY. RSVP here or call (773) 244-9333.
