Bustld was built to bring truth and transparency to the wedding industry to reduce the chaos in finding the right vendors and wedding inspiration for your dream day
We believe in simplicity and transparency. We believe it takes a community to build your perfect wedding day. And we believe that time is the most valuable resource any of us have. That’s why we created Bustld, a wedding resource that connects couples and vendors based on fit, not who pays the most, with a local, modern spin.
On our site, you will find vetted vendors, planning tips from wedding pros and local wedding inspiration. Yes, our vendors pay to be apart of the community but we don’t accept anyone who hasn’t met our wedding standards yet. We bring you a personalized experience by comparing your answers to our wedding quiz to vendors answers to our wedding quiz, which means you don’t have to spend hours combing through the site to find the right vendor for you. The work is done for you so you can spend time with your other half. That’s why we believe we will be your go-to site for planning your wedding.
Husband and wife team Ryan & Samie Roberts are the forces behind Bustld. They wanted to create a simple, modern, transparent resource for engaged couples that provided local inspiration and access to the best vendors in each market. As a couple who remembers their own wedding planning experience, they wanted to offer couples a way to easily match to the best vendors for them. And as a wedding vendor, they also wanted to offer vendors a way to authentically connect with the right couples for them.
Ryan (or Mr. Bustld as we call him around here) comes from a background in data and technology sales. It was classic story: Southern boy follows girl to New York City and falls in love with the city life and his job on Wall Street (it goes something like that, right?). He has always had an entrepreneurial spirit, watching his grandmother start and run a business throughout his childhood. With more than eight years experience in the data world, he combines a unique perspective of understanding how to use data to make your life easier with his passion to help people. Watching and helping his wife start her own wedding planning company has exposed him to all the ins and outs of the wedding world, and the holes in the marketplace that Bustld can fill.
Samie provides the creative and industry insight alongside the operational expertise at Bustld. Her background in public relations and event planning at one of the top boutique beauty & fashion PR agencies in New York City provided her with lots of knowledge and know-how on how to properly design and execute a large event. From there, she used that knowledge to transition into helping people design and execute their dream weddings at Something Perfect. She combines all this knowledge in her passion for bringing wedding inspiration and knowledge to couples at Bustld.
