If you’re in the midst of planning your wedding (or daydreaming about planning one!), chances are you’ve perused wedding sites for inspo. And f you tied the knot sometime in the past decade, you probably stumbled across Style Me Pretty, the OG website dedicated to planning your big day. (And arguably the inspiration for every similar wedding-centric site that’s launched since SMP’s inception in 2007.) We hate to deal out a dose of heartbreak, but we’ve just learned that the site is winding down.
“Even the most perfect of weddings must eventually come to a close,” reads a statement posted on the website’s homepage and its most recent Instagram post. “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.” Cue the tears. Users in wedding planning subreddit /r/weddingplanning are already reacting to the news. “NOOOO. Why?!? Have loved that site for +9 years!,” exclaimed one user.
While there’s no word yet on why the digital mag is shuttering, the publication did refer to its termination as a “difficult decision” in an email sent to its loyal subscribers. If you’re worried your favorite bouquet or dress inspo will disappear in a poof, no fear — while no new content will be going up after today, you have until the end of this month to screenshot, print, and pin any of your favorite articles from the site.
What do you think of Style Me Pretty’s impending shutdown? Let us know @BritandCo!
