Wedding Bride is a new theme from Alex Itsios, co-founder of Ketchup Themes. The Cyprus-based theme company has 16 themes on WordPress.org. Wedding themes are a relatively small niche in the directory with fewer than 20 listings. This new arrival stands out from the pack with its bold colors and customizability.
Many WordPress wedding themes in the official directory seem like a wedding site forced into a blog-oriented design, with lingering post meta in areas where it serves no purpose. This particular niche is where a focused, one-page design really shines. Wedding Bride features event-specific front page sections for the couple to share their story but also allows for (optional) extra pages and a blog.
All of the theme’s options can be found in the Customizer where users can upload a header image, personalize the header overlay, and add various content sections – all of which are optional. It also includes an option to make the navigation menu sticky or have it scroll with the page (default).
Wedding Bride users can customize the background color and/or image. Unfortunately, the theme does not include a color picker to customize the pink accent color, but this can be changed with a little CSS. Blog pages include a sidebar and it supports four widget areas in the footer. The contact form section was created for use with Contact Form 7.
Check out the live demo to see the theme in action. Wedding Bride is Alex Itsios’ 16th theme on WordPress.org and his first foray into the wedding niche.
