"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."

Kate L. Harrison founded Green Bride Guide in 2009 after the release of her best-selling book "The Green Bride Guide: How to Plan an Earth-Friendly Wedding on Any Budget".  Green Bride Guide has become the #1 resource for planning eco-friendly weddings in the world, providing ideas, products and services to over 1 million couples and industry professionals.

"Green has become mainstream, but major players in the wedding industry have been slow to catch on" said Harrison. "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."

The Green Bride Guide property perfectly complements mywedding.com, providing couples with content that is tailored to their specific interests.
