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.
