"We have seen an intensifying desire to incorporate eco-friendly elements into wedding celebrations," said Woody Pastorius, CEO of mywedding.com. "Whether it is something as simple as using recycled paper for invitations or as complex as upcycling every piece of wedding décor, more brides are focusing on the effect their celebration has on the environment."

"mywedding.com has always had a commitment to providing couples with the resources they need to plan their unique celebration. This acquisition is a testament to mywedding's commitment to the needs of today's couples. They truly understand that there are a growing number of couples that want their weddings to be beautiful, personal and kind to the earth."
