How many times have you started out planning a bachelorette party with excitement, anticipation, and brilliant ideas, and then somewhere along the process found yourself pulling your hair out in frustration? You know the drill… Although the theme, décor and treats are fun to shop for, as the maid of honor/bachelorette party planner you are also tasked with managing everyone’s opinions, tracking headcounts for all the activities, and scrambling for the best reservations. The planning discussions often end up in convoluted email chains and more often than not, one of the invitees misses a crucial message or somehow falls off the email string (and either goes off on a tangent, or worse, feels left out). Plus, there’s the sticky business of figuring out who-owes-whom-what post-party, which can leave a bad taste after even the most fabulous of events.
We’ve all had to deal with this scenario, as have our friends at www.LastBash.com – who have actually made it their goal to do something about it!
LastBash is a new, free online application for managing the logistics of bachelorette parties (and other group gatherings). It’s user friendly and designed to simplify the process of — and put the fun back into — coordinating the ultimate bash. In addition to event details and RSVP functionality, LastBash allows bachelorette party groups to discuss and collaborate on ideas via a private dashboard; manage multiple activities and RSVPs for each; obtain tips and destination recommendations; and track and split expenses fairly and efficiently.
As bachelorette party planners and participants, we love how www.LastBash.com eliminates the planning headaches so we can bring all our energy to the actual party and focus on what matters most – giving the bride-to-be (and her besties,) the ultimate bash!
