Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Roundup of suitable themes, part of WordPress DIY: Weddings and Special Events.
Based on the requirements we set out for this project,…I went searching in the WordPress.org…themes directory for some themes…that would be befitting a wedding website.…While there are many themes available…that could be used for this site,…I'd like to show you the three I think…would work best right now.…All feature clean and minimalist design,…all display large images,…all are content focused and have large…and easy-to-read typography,…and all are responsive and based on up-to-date…coding standards and practices.…After testing a myriad of themes extensively,…I found that one of the themes…that bubbled up on top was the default theme…that WordPress comes with right now, Twenty Fifteen.…
Out of the box, Twenty Fifteen looks pretty good,…and you can further customize it using the customizer.…For example, Twenty Fifteen allows you…to change the color scheme,…and it even comes with several different…base color schemes to start from.…So, if you want to try out the blue color scheme,…you can simply switch it and see what that looks like,…
