BASHelorette Launches “Create My BASH” -A Personalized Bachelorette Party Resource For Users To Help Design A Custom Party Page & Itinerary Anywhere In The U.S.

 

November 20, 2013 (Annapolis, MD) — BASHelorette, a bachelorette party and special occasion planning website, rolls out a brand new service allowing women to help create customized landing pages dedicated to their parties. The personalized landing pages feature unique imagery, itineraries and other features, delivering an ultra-custom planning and sharing experience.

The new free service called “Create My BASH” was developed to allow users to create a highly personalized approach to bachelorette parties and other celebratory occasions, while solving some of the planning-related headaches, like per person pricing options and creating a central area to share information about the party. The pages can contain a personalized image, a unique name/title, a custom itinerary, a unique link and a method to allow groups to individually pay for the party in advance.

“According to surveys, the majority of brides are utilizing free wedding sites offered by large wedding companies, which helps them share information and personalized details about the big day. There was nothing similar for bachelorette parties or other women-centric celebratory occasions. We know women want a personalized experience based on our user requests, which inspired us to create a platform where they can share information, itineraries and other important details about the party,” says BASHelorette’s Founder, Courtney Smith.

 

The “Create My BASH” service is free to users planning a bachelorette party or special occasion in the United States. To utilize the service, users email or call BASHelorette and submit requested details such as – date of the event, number of guests, per person budget and preferences regarding dining, nightlife, activities, etc. Once an itinerary is confirmed, the custom details are implemented, and the personalized page is created by BASHelorette.

Smith explained the objective tied to the new service – “Our goal is to help women plan bachelorette parties and special events that are memorable and fun, but easy to plan and execute. We feel the ‘Create Your BASH’ service will help women plan their parties easily, and will also allow us to help plan parties anywhere in the US. Before this program, users could only view options in the cities we have listed on the site. Now, we can plan their parties pretty much anywhere in the country.”

First Ever Digital Bachelorette Party And Girl’s Night Out Planning Website Opens Baltimore As Next Destination

May 27, 2013 (Annapolis, MD) – BASHelorette, the first company to create a digital and public platform enabling users to plan their own bachelorette parties, girl’s nights out and girlfriend getaways with hand-selected partners and venues throughout the United States, adds Baltimore to its destination cities.

The addition of Baltimore marks the second city opened on the party-planning site, and follows the launch of Annapolis, where the company is headquartered. The Baltimore section of the website includes dining, entertainment, beauty, accommodations and nightlife options that users can select and add to their digital itineraries. According to The Knot research statistics, Baltimore ranks fourteenth in the top twenty most expensive wedding areas in the country.

“Baltimore is such an amazing and diverse city, plus it is right here in our own backyard. My dad was born and raised in Baltimore, I went to high school here and much of my family still lives here as well. To see it grow, expand its cultural offerings and become a destination for weddings, bachelorette parties and girlfriend getaways, meant it was only natural Baltimore would be the next city offered on BASHelorette,” says founder Courtney Smith.

Current businesses listed on the Baltimore section of the site include Tatu Restaurant & Lounge, Canton Hair Studio, Glow To Go, The Get Down, Mosaic Nightclub & Lounge and Baltimore Comedy Factory among others. Each business listing includes special deals for bachelorette parties, girl’s nights out and special occasions, in addition to other helpful information.

Digital Startup Launches First Ever Site Enabling Consumers To Plan Bachelorette Parties And Girlfriend Getaways Completely Online

April 22, 2013 (Annapolis, Maryland) – BASHelorette, a Maryland startup, officially launches in Annapolis, offering an innovative, platform for planning bachelorette parties, girl’s nights out and girlfriend getaways.

The digital company was conceptualized and developed by marketing professional and entrepreneur Courtney Smith, who identified the need for a time and money-saving solution for planning bachelorette parties and girlfriend getaways. “I have planned enough bachelorette parties and outings to know they require a ton of time and work – the planning process can be really stressful. On the flipside, I worked with several businesses looking for ways to increase revenue from bachelorette parties. It only made sense to connect consumers and businesses through a site that would help consumers, while allowing businesses attract a niche part of the market,” says Smith.

The website provides consumers a free, easy-to-use platform that features desirable venues for bachelorette parties and girlfriend getaways. Users can select accommodations, experiences, restaurants and other offerings in major cities throughout the country to create a customized digital itinerary. Users simply sign up, browse listings in each category in their city, and add their selections to a customized itinerary.

Other features include a gifts and favors section, free e-cards, and extensive editorial content covering topics pertaining to bachelorette parties, weddings, fashion, beauty, travel and entertainment. Currently, BASHelorette offers its services in the company’s hometown of Annapolis, Maryland. Baltimore, Washington, DC and Scottsdale/Phoenix will be offered in June 2013. The company anticipates opening ten more markets this year including Las Vegas, Miami, New York City and Chicago.
