    50. Lifting the veil social media places over the wedding industry with co-founder of Bustld, Samie Roberts

    50. Lifting the veil social media places over the wedding industry with co-founder of Bustld, Samie Roberts

    Are you or someone you know currently planning a wedding? This is the conversation you need to hear! On today's episode we are speaking to Samie Roberts, co-founder of Bustld. Bustld is a wedding planning platform that helps connect vendors with brides + grooms. We are lifting the veil social media places over the wedding industry. Samie helps couples plan the wedding they want, not the one social media tells them they should have. 

    Samie provides the creative and industry insight alongside the operational expertise at Bustld. Her background at a top PR agency in New York City provided her the knowledge and know-how on how to properly design and execute large events. She used that knowledge to launch one of the top wedding planning companies in Charlotte seven years ago. She combines all this knowledge in her passion for bringing wedding inspiration and knowledge to couples at Bustld.
