Another alternative is to use a workflow to achieve, what I'm understanding to be, an interface to select a site template.
Coding an event handler could be a solution if you didn't have the requirement to prompt the user for an action.

                            SPSite ositecollection = new SPSite(ParentUrl);

                            SPWeb mysite = ositecollection.OpenWeb();

                            string siteTitle = properties.ListItem.Title;

                            string siteUrl = ParentUrl + "/" + siteTitle;
