Wedding blog Style Me Pretty to shut down April 30
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.
I cannot believe @stylemepretty is shutting down at the end of April! I'm not even planning a wedding, but I always loved their content. Thank you for the 10 years of gorgeous social media feeds. #stylemepretty— DearEvelyn.com (@DearEvelynCo) April 11, 2018
2007 I started my first office job & one day while on my lunch break I came across this website called a Blog, with photos from a random couple's Wedding. I was HOOKED. A new dream was set and ultimately now a new career. That blog was #stylemepretty ...Thank you, dearly ♥️ https://t.co/pVMVKfhEPw— Crystal Nicole (@crystalnicolehq) April 10, 2018
So sad to hear that @stylemepretty is closing its 'website' doors at the end of this month. What an inspiration it has been for all those bridal couples. We wish them well in their future #stylemepretty #endofanera #wedding pic.twitter.com/HfPK3Juiti— Fabulous Together (@fabulous2gether) April 11, 2018
