It appears that the more couples spend on an engagement ring and wedding ceremony, the shorter the marriage, according to a study released last year by Andrew Francis and Hugo Mialon, professors in the Department of Economics at Emory University in Atlanta.

Web Wed has been working on setting up partnerships with other on line companies in the wedding industry, expanding their reach into various other segments and increasing the services appeal to an on line based culture.
