A lot of work goes into planning and preparing for a wedding, and these days your plan should include a website for your wedding. You can have people RSVP, list your gift registry, and have all the details for when and where your guests should arrive. It’s also more environmentally friendly than sending out traditional RSVP cards for people mail back to you, and you’ll save money on printing! You can collect guests email addresses in a mailing list and keep them up to date on any changes in terms of venue, hotels, or what do in case of rain. One of the best things to do is put a Google map up with the location and address of the venue, then you won’t have to deal with a million phone calls looking for directions or confirming the location of the wedding.
Below are our top picks for Wedding themes for WordPress:
$40. This is a relatively new theme available through ThemeForest, but it’s very well reviewed with a solid 5 star rating (that almost never happens!). All of the positive reviews note the excellent support by the theme developer, so if you are having any trouble you can contact him with questions. Beyond that the theme is quite simple and elegant, and best of all it is a responsive design. That means it will scale appropriately to display well on mobile devices, which is quite important these days! You’ll get your RSVPs in a lot quicker if your guests are able to do it on their phone or tablet. Lots of options for customization, a built-in RSVP form, support for Google maps, and image galleries all make this theme a great choice.
$40. The second most highly rated wedding theme on ThemeForest is Soul from developer Kaaz. This one has a bit more of a complex layout, but that doesn’t mean it’s difficult to implement or update! Soul actually comes with dummy content included, so you can see what text will go where. It’s also highly customizable and comes with custom post types as well as 10 different page templates. With a responsive design (which really should be standard these days) Soul is a solid choice too.
On top of that, Soul has become incredibly popular, and is used on sites like Livingsocial! This great theme has become a standard in the WordPress industry.
FREE. I wanted to include at least one free theme in this list in case you are on a budget. With a free theme you can not expect the same level of support from the theme developers as you can with the paid ones, but if you aren’t overly fussed with being able to change every little detail or having lots of different page templates then this theme should suit you just fine. It does have a responsive layout and a decent amount of features, for $0 it’s a great option!
