When I started planning my wedding five years ago I thought the internet was full of ideas. I was engaged in September of 2007 and lucky for me Style Me Pretty had been launched that February so there was plenty of content for me to swoon over. Five years later, if you’re planning a wedding, SMP is one of the top sites for inspiration with both real weddings and styled shoots. I tell all of my brides it’s the place to go to start planning. With pinterest growing in popularity it’s hard not to pin everything from their site, I used to copy and paste the pictures into Word docs to save and use later.

Well, Style Me Pretty announced a book this morning, it’s available for pre-order now from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Indie Bound. It’s not terribly expensive, about the price of three magazines and even if you’re married already, who doesn’t love a book full of amazing and inspiring images? The cover, shot by Jose Villa pretty much screams “Lauren get married again and wear this dress and carry this bouquet”. If only I could….

From the SMP blog and Abby herself ” This book is Style Me Pretty. It’s beautiful weddings, it’s ideas that are real and approachable and yet decidedly chic. It’s moments of pure genius crafted by some of our favorite vendors, artists and designers in the world. It’s practical, it’s dream worthy, it’s fabulous.”

I pre-ordered mine now go get yours. I can’t imagine you’ll be disappointed!
