Besides having a really cool name, Wedobo is a cool idea for a site.  Think of it as the Groupon model but applied just to the wedding industry.  Every week, there’s a different deal for a wedding vendor or service.  And considering how much weddings can cost these days, the idea behind Wedobo is not a bad idea at all!

This isn’t founder Amanda Sudimack’s first company.  She’s been working in the wedding industry for 12 years and owns her own wedding photography and events company in Chicago called Artisan Events.

Wedobo was one of those ideas that Amanda just couldn’t get out of her head.  After many months of smoothing out the idea and development of the actual site, Amanda launched it barely 8 weeks ago!What was it about this idea for a site that excited Amanda so much?  I interviewed her to find out.  If you can’t see our video interview above, please click here.
