using the bash

  • Do all vendors carry event insurance?

    The Bash does not require vendors to have event insurance; however, we know that many venues and planners require insurance. We encourage you to discuss insurance with your hired vendor ahead of time and, if needed, we recommend for one-day event insurance needs.

  • Do all vendors on The Bash have background checks?

    The Bash does not require vendors to complete a background check. We understand the importance and peace of mind that background checks bring, so if you'd like a vendor to have a background check for your event, please reach out to your vendor to discuss further.

  • How do I use The Bash?

    The Bash allows you to easily search, contact, book, and review top vendors from the comfort of your living room! To receive a custom price quote and get started on your way to booking a top-rated vendor for your event, please follow these easy steps:

    Search by vendor type and location on The Bash homepage - compare photos, video and audio samples, descriptions, and reviews.

    Contact vendors by clicking the "Request Free Quote" button. You will receive your free quotes by email along with the vendor's contact information.

    Book a vendor through The Bash website.

    Enjoy the party!

  • I do not know my event date but I would like to receive quotes from vendors, can I still proceed?

    You will need to enter in a specific date to successfully submit a request to any of our vendors; however, if you do not know the date, or, if your date is flexible we'd ask that you please put in a place-holder date.

    In the 'details' of your request, you can let the vendor know that the date is not yet determined or that it is flexible. Once the vendor gets back to you with a quote, you will receive their contact information and can discuss a date that works best for you and the vendor.

    If you need help updating the date once it is confirmed, please let us know and we will be happy to help!
