Wedding Blog Style Me Pretty Is Shutting Down At The End Of April
Much to the shock of wedding professionals and enthusiasts, wedding blog Style Me Pretty announced on April 10 that it's shutting down at the end of the month.
If you got married or know someone who got married in the last decade, it's likely you came across SMP at some point – it's pretty much responsible for what we now think of as "the Pinterest wedding".
"Even the most perfect of weddings must eventually come to a close. The same is true for us here at Style Me Pretty. After an incredible twelve years of sharing your beautiful weddings, we will close Style Me Pretty on April 30th," the company explained in a statement posted at the top of its website and on its social media accounts.
Although Style Me Pretty didn't list an official reason for its closure, a source told BuzzFeed that it was "an unexpected decision made by the parent company."
Not only will Style Me Pretty stop posting new content as of today, all of the site's archives will apparently be inaccessible after April 30. Couples and vendors featured on Style Me Pretty were told in an email to screenshot anything they wanted to save.
A typical Style Me Pretty wedding looked a lot like this one, with no shortage of sun-dappled photos and lots of cafe lights. The bride in these photos, Adriana Rodriguez Foy, was more than thrilled to be featured on her dream wedding website back in 2013.
"I loved Style Me Pretty when I was planning," Foy told BuzzFeed. "Every wedding on the site was beautiful and full of meaningful details. It made you want to be at this wedding and have a wedding just like it."
"I think I cried when we found out we were going to be on SMP. I spent a year planning this magical day and it was going to shown to everyone in a amazing way. It was definitely a goal to be on there, the joke in my family became, 'But is it good enough for Style Me Pretty?' when we made decisions."
