Hear Candid Conversations with wedding professionals as well as couples. Stories, insights and tips from inside the wedding industry. Weddings days are so much more than the I Do's! As creative entrepreneurs not only are we working hard for our couples (and each other) on their day, but we know the countless hours spent on the days leading up to them. Many of us are solo creatives and often find ourselves feeling alone, dealing with the struggles of finding more clients, keeping current clients happy, & generating an income, as well as a finding that sweet spot of work-life balance. We’ll chat about how to be authentic and that it’s okay not to be perfect or follow the crowd and run your business like another vendors IG/nine squares. Yes, running a business that understands and reflects that putting people at the forefront can still make a profit. Our individual talents all bring value to this industry and it is a privilege to serve our clients during this chapter of their lives. Together we’ll discuss how to avoid burn out and the guilt from being away from our own families and missing out on those weekend moments! Wedding pros become our weekend families, so let’s exchange experiences, funny stories, wedding day mishaps, and more. When we share what we know and have learned, we feel less isolated-- or that we are failing. During these conversations, my hope is that there will be life and business lessons that benefit all of us. Join us with an open heart, no pre-judgements, and lets’ have some real honest talk about our community and industry; the good, bad, and the ugly, the happy and sad tears! The more we share on how we got here, & what keeps us going, then the more we can cheer each other on and build a community and foundational teamwork we can all be proud of. One that makes us all better able to be of service to our couples and families, as well as have careers where we’re able to support ourselves and take pride doing so.These conversations will take us all into the wedding weekend a little more confidently, and proud of what we do and how we serve, as well as being better business people that have more family time.

The Lady Griffith ,

What a fabbo podcast!

Whenever I need advice for my wedding business, I turn to the Be Fabbo podcast. Bobbi is really the hard of the podcast — she’s spent 40 years in the wedding industry and has a unique perspective. I know if Bobbi recommends someone on her podcast, I’m going to love them. Keep up the great work, Bobbi & Tina!

Fabulously Fabulous!

Todd and I had a blast with Bobbi! We were so honored to be able to share our business (Coastal Chic Studios) with her and all of her amazing listeners. Bobbi is a wonderful photographer and educator who is happy to shine a light on our amazing wedding vendor community. We are so thankful for her support! Keep it up Bobbi, we appreciate all you do for our community.

It’s Fabbo

So glad I found this podcast! I have been a wedding planner for several years and know the struggle of staying motivated in an industry that can often be cut throat!

Bobbi has so much experience not just behind the camera but on the biz side of owning a creative wedding business! She is a cheerleader that is always willing to help you grow and is there with a pep talk or tough talk when you need it !

Her podcast is the same, not over scripted and it’s really a conversation with her guest and hearing other wedding pros have the same issues I do is so refreshing! She is introducing listers to wedding pros that don’t always get the spotlight and that is fabbo! I love hearing guest stories and why they are doing what they do !

She is so authentic and honest and we need that in our industry where many times Wedding Pros are just trying to sell you something and not really wanting you to succeed.

This is a fabbo podcast for couples planning a wedding and this of us who make a living working in it 🙌🏻

Listen and learn how we are all Fabbo
