For the 2 million monthly followers of powerhouse wedding blog StyleMePretty.com, the major mainstream hit with serious indie cred (think Domino meets Etsy meets Martha Stewart Weddings), and for all brides looking for fresh new inspiration, editor in chief Abby Larson offers an eagerly awaited, entirely unique, and gorgeously photo-rich wedding resource.
Joyful, love-filled weddings are created with the details that make the couple unique. These touches--letter-pressed table cards with a pet bulldog cameo; a chandelier to which the bride and groom tied hundreds of colorful ribbons; a photograph of the bride's grandparents fastened around her bouquet--elevate a beautiful day into a deeply personal, unforgettable celebration.
Style Me Pretty has become a go-to destination for planning your own ecstatic wedding. Now, the founder of this beloved site, Abby Larson, offers this gorgeous resource, which includes:
• Abby’s step-by step guide to determining your couple style, gathering inspiration, and threading it through each element of the celebration
• 17 never-before-seen Real-Life Weddings—with details on all their special and handcrafted touches, and advice from the brides
• 5 Style Blueprints to help you custom-craft your own Classic, Rustic, Whimsical, Modern, or Al Fresco wedding, from paper goods to the cake
• 15 Do It Yourself projects, such as glittered vases, linen favor bags, and dip-dyed ombré napkins
Full of lively and oh-so-lovely ideas, and more than 250 photographs, this swoonworthy volume will help you distill the wide world of wedding inspiration into the most meaningful, utterly original day you can imagine.

If you flip through bridal magazines with your mouth ajar going "HOW MUCH DID THIS COST!?" this book is not for you. It is, in fact, a giant, panic-inducing list of all the things you will not think about for your wedding, and everyone will still love you and your fiance and your wedding anyway. If you just want some practical advice about how to have a fabulous and fun wedding without blowing your budget, LOOK ELSEWHERE.
Also, the list of the styles shown is very small, so even if you have endless time and budget, make sure the style you are looking for is in the book.
Even though Style Me Pretty focuses on all of the beautiful details from the wedding, it emphasizes the couple's relationship. What makes a Style Me Pretty wedding different from all of the weddings you see in magazines is the personal touches. Whether it's matching odd-ball shoes or a very whimsical and untraditional detail, a Style Me Pretty wedding expresses those details that are unique to the couple.
Reading all of the advice from real brides and looking at all of the pretty pictures of couples who were so happy just to be spending the day together got me excited about the wedding again! Despite all of the wedding guest list headaches, occasional arguments, exciting moments, and road bumps in a few months I will be happily married to the man I have spent a fabulous six years with and I can't wait to incorporate details that are special to us into our wedding day.
Reading all of the fantastic advice from brides and looking at all of the beautiful awe-inspiring images made me so excited about planning the wedding! I highly recommend getting this book the moment you get engaged since it is really helpful about the planning process from beginning to end.
