the powerhouse ladies of

behind the bash

Once upon a time, a wedding planner and a catering manager were kicking back, enjoying some late night beers, talking about how wedding shows kinda suck sometimes.

They were dying to meet really awesome couples. They wanted to showcase their talents authentically. They didn’t want to be stuck in a box unable to make real connections. And they sure as shit weren’t going to become cutthroat salesmen to get there.

But then, the lightbulb went off! We know awesome vendors. We understand modern couples’ wish lists. WE CAN TOTALLY DO THIS!

And so, Bash was born.

Heading into our fourth year, we are immensely thankful for the trust and love so many people have poured into this dream. The fact that we’ve welcomed over 200 vendors and 1000+ couples into our shows is beyond what we ever thought possible.

We’re proud to have built an inclusive environment for all couples and to surround ourselves with like-minded vendors who value community over competition. in four short years, couples have become friends and we’ve seen vendors go from having their own small dream to now being successful industry vets.

we love the wedding industry. and we’re not done yet!
