That sound you're hearing is the collective gasp of brides-to-be after finding out popular wedding blog Style Me Pretty will shut down at the end of April.

The website announced it will no longer be posting new content and will be open only until April 30 for anyone who wants to save anything on the site.

"Even the most perfect of weddings must eventually come to a close. The same is true for us here at Style Me Pretty," a statement at the top of the website said. "We're so proud to have played even a small role in sending so many brides and grooms off into their happily-ever-after. Thank you for sharing such special moments with us."

Style Me Pretty has been a popular spot for brides and people seeking inspiration for parties and events for 12 years — including myself as I planned my wedding in 2015 and 2016.

Not only did the website feature photos from real weddings, but also provided extensive vendor lists from around the world.

Abby Larson started Style Me Pretty in 2007.

WWD reported the site operates under the banner of Oath Inc., a subsidiary of Verizon.

Twitter was filled with shock and sadness over the news.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
