mediabistro.com founder Laurel Touby will not be exchanging vows with TheKnot.com co-founders David Liu and Carley Roney on BNET Live’s Secrets of Successful Startups Thursday at 1:30 p.m. ET.

However, Touby will sit down with the duo behind the wedding Web giant and discuss, among other things, how they convinced then-AOL president Ted Leonsis to launch the site on the AOL network, why a film student is better-equipped to run a company than an MBA, how they used smart public relations to grow and avoided binging on marketing spending, and why they invested in print and hyperlocal when neither sector was booming at the time.

Don’t forget to RSVP: Thursday at 1:30 p.m. on BNET Live.
