We had such a good experience with Bash DC. Terri Eaves was so professional and easy to work with. She was available to do as much or as little as we wanted her to. As a month of planner, she emailed with us well before the month started. She really knows what she is doing and has great advice on logistics and just making everything go smoothly. I can't say enough what a breath of fresh air she was among a very Type A family. I can't recommend her enough.

If anyone is hesitant to spend money on full-planning services, I can assure you that working with Terri is worth every penny. We hired Terri for full-planning, so we worked with her for nine months leading up to the wedding, on the actual day of our wedding, and even worked with her to tie up a few loose ends afterwards. We interviewed quite a few planners who seemed very promising. However we decided to go with Terri due to her experience in planning events for so many years, art and design background, and positive yet calm personality.

Throughout the planning process, which started shortly after we got engaged, she helped keep us on track and gave us valuable advice and expertise. I was not the type of bride who had been planning her wedding for years. In fact I didn’t really know much about weddings, so I had A LOT of questions. Terri was so helpful and professional throughout, helping me understand how everything worked. I didn’t have any background in décor or design, but I had an idea in my head of how I wanted the event to look and feel. Terri took my ideas and created a beautiful event that was even better than I imagined!!

What was most valuable was her relationships with various vendors. We knew that using vendors through her meant that everything would be seamless on the big day, which gave us peace of mind. Bash works with reliable and hard-working vendors, which allowed us to be relaxed and happy on our wedding day. We were able to focus on being “guests” at our own wedding, dancing and socializing, while Terri worked efficiently and harmoniously with all the vendors behind the scenes. I am very picky and particular about logistics (everyone has their thing they care about) and the entire day was FLAWLESS, thanks to Terri and her team.

If you want to have a momentous, beautiful, and magical day I highly recommend Terri and her team at Bash for full-planning services.

We worked with Sarah and would recommend her to anyone needing a day of coordinator! We met with Sarah and knew she would be a great fit right away. We started working with her about eight weeks out and worked on coordinating all the vendors, making sure bills were paid, and that the schedule was set. The day of her and her assistant (AdeOla) did a Fantastic job! They were on top of everything, made sure things were set up the way they needed to be, and were there to help out the whole night! At the end they even made sure all the vendors were out on time and everything was done as it should be. She was extremely personal and very responsive to any questions we had. I would highly recommend working with Bash!

We had our wedding at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and from the start, we knew we would want the help of a day-of coordinator. We decided to work with Sarah at Bash. Sarah was familiar with our venue and our vendors, and she helped guide us through the final preparations for our wedding so that we knew exactly what to expect on the big day. Throughout the ceremony and reception, Sarah made sure everyone knew where to be and when; she kept everything running on schedule; and made sure everyone was out on time. Sarah made the planning process and the wedding night stress-free. I can’t imagine how we would have done it without her!

(Our wedding was actually on July 28th) Terri Eaves and all of the staff at Bash were AMAZING! We will forever be grateful for all of the assistance in planning the wedding of our dreams. Terri was kind, compassionate, attentive, always professional and an overall god send to my husband and me! She would offer great advice and reputable vendors with which to work. Our only sadness with our day being over is not to be in as much communication with her anymore! Thank you, Terri and Bash!!

Sarah at Bash was wonderful to work with for day-of coordination services (which really began 8 weeks out). She had all of the details worked out well in advance, and I was completely comfortable leaving everything related to all vendors to her. I had my wedding at a beautiful place with somewhat unreliable staff, and Sarah ensured that nothing went wrong as a result of their lack of organization. She was responsive to my requests and really helped to make this day fantastic and as stress-free as possible. Thank you!

We chose Bash for our wedding day-of-coordination and highly recommend Terri and her staff!

We interviewed a number of coordinators and chose Bash because of Terri’s experience in wedding planning and relationships with our vendors. She had worked with many of them before and knew what to adjust for. We were hesitant at first because Bash had never worked at our specific venue (Westin Georgetown) while all of our other potential coordinators did. Nevertheless, we felt that Terri’s experience and pro-activeness would make up for that. Also, since this is her business, she was completely vested in the quality and service provided.

Day-of-coordination service really began about a month before our wedding. Leading up to the big day, she maintained contact with the vendors to manage logistics (parking, loading/unloading, etc) and really incorporated our personal touches into the day of timeline. We liked that she had a solid day of template to work from and put in our personalizations (slideshow, extra speeches/toasts, etc). As Project Management professionals, we were sticklers for using MS office applications (MS Word, Excel) to manage things and realized that not everyone uses all the features in those applications so that is one thing to keep in mind if you are OCD and tech saavy!

However, the day of the wedding is really organized chaos and we can’t imagine having another team. Terri was calm and collected to handle issues that came up and directed events with just the right amount of “take charge” attitude to be to effective but not overbearing. For example, we mislabeled some escort cards and had people at the wrong tables, but she shuffled guests around without being intrusive. She was able to do this because of good preparation - reviewing the table layouts, guest list, entree selections, etc.

We would definitely pick Bash again!

Sarah was such a gem to work with! We hired her for month-of coordination services, and honestly, I can't believe we ever considered not doing it. At first I thought, well, I'll save the money and set everything up myself. Then as I started planning, I realized, oh, well, I guess I'll probably have a million other things going on that day. That's where Sarah and her team came in, and I'm not sure we could have done it without her! We discussed the main concept during our intial consultation, and we provided her with our decor, programs, favors, etc. the day before the wedding. Sarah and her staff organized and coordinated our special day flawlessly. I had an idea of how I wanted the ceremony and reception to look; Sarah made it even better! She was also essential in coordinating our vendors and provided a thorough (and incredibly useful) timeline of events to keep everything organized. At the end of the night, Sarah and her team packed everything for us, ahead of the strict contract end-time at our venue (avoiding any additional rental charges). Like I said, I'm not sure we could have done it without Sarah! She allowed us to have such fun at our wedding, enjoying the company of loved ones, rather than worrying about logistics. The best part is her calm sensibility - weddings are like a walk in the park for her. Considering how overwhelming the details of that special day might seem, Sarah's presence lets you know everything is going to be just fine. And it was more than fine - it was perfect. Thanks again, Sarah!! :)

Words can't fully express how grateful we are for the wonderful work Sarah and her team did for us on our wedding day at Woodend Sanctuary. I first spoke with Sarah several months before my wedding when investigating day of planning services. She responded immediately to my inquiry and we had a long chat over the phone about the details of our wedding, our vision for the day, and how Sarah and her team could help execute some ideas we had. I immediately felt that Sarah 'got' the feel of the kind of day we wanted for our friends, family, and ourselves. Sarah's professionalism, sense of humor, and warm personality was apparent to me on that first phone call. I had investigated many other event planning companies and was really put off by the attitude from some, particularly a sense of unwarranted pretentiousness. Sarah was the complete opposite and I decided that should we go forward with a day-of planner, we would go with her.

I initially resisted going with a day-of planner. We were planning our wedding from overseas and thought that we would rely on friends and family in the area to help us bring together the little details and coordination for our big day. Six weeks before the wedding, however, panic (and a wee reality check) set in. I had a lot of DIY elements I wanted to incorporate for our outdoor ceremony and reception and though we were delegating items to friends, I really wanted our loved ones to just enjoy themselves that day, especially those that had travelled great distances to be with us.

We were incredibly grateful and relieved to discover Sarah was still available for our day. Just speaking with her then was incredibly calming, and our discussions of putting together an itinerary, liasing with other vendors, discussing the set up of all our myriad projects immediately began. To say I had peace of mind amidst the chaos in the weeks prior to our day would be an understatement. Sarah was always available to discuss ideas, change of plans, and completely bent over backwards to bring together our ideas in a very short span of time.

I only regret that we hadn't made the decision to work with Sarah earlier. On the day of the wedding, she was just amazing. Everything seemed just beautifully fluid and effortless that day from her work coordinating the extensive set up of our projects, to the ceremony, dinner and dancing. If there were any hiccups that day we never noticed them, which would be testament to her skill and professionalism. Beyond her talents, she's also such a lovely person and I couldn't have asked for a better point person to have on that day. My guests and family commented frequently on how seamless the wedding went because of her and her team.

I've never been a gushy wedding person and was never the girl who planned her wedding when she was 8. My wedding day, though, was truly one of the happiest days of my life and I am grateful for Sarah's help in making it just that. Hiring a day-of planner was one of the smartest decisions we made (one I wish we did sooner!) and erased a great deal of stress and anxiety. We couldn't recommend Sarah more and very much hope we get to see her in DC in the near future to thank her again.

I'm writing to provide a much belated, but very deserved glowing review of Bash! My husband and I did most of the planning for our April 2012 wedding. However, we knew that we wanted a day of coordinator to help facilitate our dream wedding. Choosing Bash, and particularly Cara, was perhaps the best decision of our wedding!

We got married at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, DC which offers an absolutely gorgeous event space. However, the site itself does not necessarily handle all of the day of items that need attention. This is where Cara and her team from Bash came in.

Throughout the entire planning process Cara was unbelievably professional. She allayed any nerves and fears that I had and made me feel as though everything was under control leading up to the big day. The day of, when we realized we had left our marriage certificate at home (less than two hours before the wedding!) Cara calmly approached me and helped me develop a plan to get the certificate and ensure that everything would go off without a hitch.

The entire evening was perfect. My husband and I still can't believe how smooth everything went. I know that we wouldn't have been able to accomplish this without the thorough planning and foresight of the team at Bash. Do not underestimate how important having a day of coordinator is! Bash makes the entire event run smoothly and allows you and your guests to enjoy the party!

Thank you again Cara and the rest of the team at Bash for making our wedding the absolute best day of my life!
