Best WordPress Themes for Weddings, Engagements and Newlyweds (2018)
- 1 Comment
A wedding is, hopefully, a once-in-a-lifetime experience — and one that many will want to celebrate with the help of a dedicated website. What’s more, the right website can ease the pressure by helping with wedding tasks such as organizing events, registrations, photoshoots and dinners, accepting gifts, and so on.
WordPress boasts a number of themes that are filled with features to help remove some of the burden of planning your big day, and leave you with more time to actually enjoy the whole experience — the way it should be!
An ideal wedding theme should be simple, responsive and support various media elements (photos, videos, and so on) in a big way. The themes should come with RSVP forms and guestbooks. Most themes also include a countdown timer that helps keep track of the number of days left for the big event.
