  • My husband and I fell in love with the historic and elegant beauty of Bash on our first tour with Catherine. We also liked the option of having the ceremony and the reception in one location thus simplifying travel for our guests. The unexpected bonus was the privilege of working with Catherine. It was immediately apparent that Catherine genuinely cared about providing us with an amazing wedding day. Through the process of planning the wedding she was always available to answer questions, provide suggestions and help in any way she could. She mentioned on several occasions to call her before purchasing décor as she probably already had it available for us to use. Our wedding day was effortless and all the set up and tear down was provided by Catherine and her team. There were many examples throughout the day that Catherine and her team took care of us and made us feel special. To mention a couple of examples, while our bridal party rested and waited for our introductions we were serve... Read more

  • I wish I could give Bash, Catherine and her staff ten stars instead of just five! My best friend Jess was married here and EVERYTHING (seriously, EVERYTHING!!!) for rehearsal, ceremony and reception was amazing! You can tell that Catherine cares VERY much about giving the bride the day of her dreams- and knows exactly how to execute her vision. In these crazy COVID times, planning for the unknown can cause SO much stress and anxiety, but Catherine was communicative and proactive about solutions that kept everyone safe and healthy and eased the minds of the bride and groom in the months leading up to their big day. The Bash staff was SO friendly and inviting, the transition between ceremony and reception was seamless, the food was delicious and everyone had a wonderful evening celebrating the bride and groom! I can’t recommend Catherine or the venue enough! If you’re looking for a beautiful space, yummy food and (most importantly) an owner/coordinator who knows EXACTLY what needs to... Read more

  • My husband and I hosted our wedding ceremony and reception at Bash on 9/6/20. Working with Catherine was an absolute joy! She is incredibly passionate about what she does, cares deeply about her couples, and has an in-depth knowledge of the wedding industry. She goes above and beyond to ensure her couples have the day of their dreams. Bash is a BEAUTIFUL venue. To find space in downtown Des Moines for a larger group of people is incredibly difficult, but Bash offers a fantastic location with plenty of space for a larger wedding. Catherine was so patient with us throughout the planning process. By no means was I a pro at wedding planning. Her advice with regards to many aspects of the wedding was SPOT ON. She is a straight shooter and will absolutely not lead you astray. She was completely respectful of our budget and was very open and honest about all costs associated with the wedding. Our wedding was absolutely gorgeous. Catherine and her team created a beautiful greenery and flower f... Read more

    Nicole, You my dear are the kindest soul I have ever met. I am so blessed to have helped in any way make your wedding day a reality. Getting to watch you two finally say I Do was a blessing for us and one that we will treasure. Please stay in touch. All our thoughts!

  • Catherine saved us! When our April wedding had to be postponed due to COVID, Catherine was there to help guide us through to process of moving our special day! She was SO organized & easy to work with through the process. She reassured us everything would be ok & she was right! First off, the venue speaks for itself! We had tons of compliments about how unique and amazing the space was. We had both the ceremony and reception at Bash, and the expert staff was able to turn things over in an efficient and flawless manner. Couple that with the abundant menu options & DELICIOUS food, and our day was everything we imagined & more! Catherine went the extra mile for us in every facet of the day, and we couldn’t have imagined having our day anywhere but Bash! ~Marc & Mandy

  • We hosted our wedding reception at Bash and it was a wonderful experience! The team did a phenomenal job at making sure the night ran smooth from beginning to end, and the food was amazing. It is a welcoming and unique location in Downtown Des Moines and we were beyond grateful for Catherine and her team!

  • My wedding cake was something out of a top tier bridal magazine. Never in my wildest dreams, did I think my wedding cake would be so stunning. I didn't want to eat it because it was so beautiful. Not only was it the most beautiful cake I had ever seen, it was absolutely delicious. This vendor also catered my wedding and the no one believed that the same person who made my cake also catered (who is she super woman?!) This is a one stop shop and I can't believe that it is Des Moines's best kept secret.

    Thank you Amber for your review. I am so happy that you loved your cake. I can't wait to do your baby shower cake next!!!

  • We loved Bash! They are a great, upscale locale to have any reception from small to large. The owner, Catherine, was by far the most helpful person in our group of vendors. She stepped in with advice, compassion, and help. She kept our reception running on time and made sure everyone had a great time. Oh....and the food! The food was to die for!

    Kelly, It was certainly our pleasure to help you and be a part of such a fantastic evening for you and Joel. We hope that 2019 will bring a million smiles and even more great memories. We miss you both already! Sincerely, Catherine Bash Events

  • We had a great wedding at this venue. The space accommodated both our ceremony and reception (180 guests) with plenty of room. Catherine and team were on top of everything that day and kept everyone happy. The food was super good and we loved their flexibility. We kept the dance floor hopping all night. You won't go wrong having your special event here.
