Style Me Pretty was one of the first wedding blogs I ever read. Its closure comes as a big surprise – and I’m truly sorry for founder Abby Larson, who was as shocked as anyone to find out her beautiful blog was to close.

People have been asking me why it happened and what the closure of Style Me Pretty means for the wedding world, particularly for wedding blogs. Are we all struggling? Has instagram killed blogs? Am I worried for the rest of us? Do I have any inside gossip?

The answer to all of these is no (and a chuckle to the last one). It’s a shame for every bride and wedding vendor whose work was featured on SMP over the years that their features will be lost. It’s so sad for everyone who worked at Style Me Pretty whose jobs have been taken away from them at a moment’s notice, and my heart goes out to them all.

But Style Me Pretty closing its doors is not the end of wedding blogs – far from it.


“We love what we do. That’s the truth. Each and every single dress we individually create is for a real person. It is never just an order, it’s about making a dream a reality and we must never forget that.

Wedding dresses 2016 collection Terry Fox bridal (4)

Beautiful brides-to-be, I’m so pleased today to be sharing the most romantic designer wedding dress collection by the wonderful Terry Fox. Terry’s quote at the beginning of today’s feature is just fabulous – she is a designer who knows just how important a wedding dress can be – and who values every bride as an individual. Her Siren Song collection exquisite, and while I’ve fallen in love with so many gowns in the collection I will leave it to Terry to introduce you to the collection in her very own words.
