If you're getting married in 2009, you need to be at Caroline DeVillo's sample sale on Saturday.
And you need to be there early.
Once a year, the Chicago wedding dress designer marks her gowns 25 to 75 percent off. Her studio doors open at 10 a.m., and the first brides to arrive get the best selection. (And the best attention...DeVillo is said to be very hands-on.)
As far as we know, there haven't been any serious bride wars in year's past, but, in our opinion, DeVillo's designs are cat-fight worthy. (Take a peek at her collection.)
It's all over by 2 p.m., so log off TheKnot.com, and head over to 1616 N. Damen Ave., pronto.
