Get Married With WordPress

One of the most important events of your life might just be your wedding. It also might be one of the craziest, disorganized, mixed-up times of your life too. We’d like to help with that a bit with a free wedding theme we call Forever. Along with a handful of cool features we’ll get to below, Forever makes it easy to wrap your wedding up in a neat little blog on WordPress.com. You can show off every one of your best photos and highlight every important detail leading up to the big day and beyond.

The Forever Theme

Forever makes it easy to welcome your family and friends to your blog with a dramatic personalized home page. The design is bold and clean with lots of room for large, colorful photos of the happy couple (that’s you!) in an optional featured post slider and home page excerpts.

You can also easily customize the color scheme and get Forever to match your wedding colors with only a few clicks. You can update the background color (or add your own pattern) from the custom background page in your blog dashboard and even change the color of the all the links from the Forever Theme Options page.

We also built in a special Guestbook Template that lets your guests take over a page of your choice with their best wishes for you … and maybe a few embarrassing stories :) … as comments.

And, of course, Forever works seamlessly with all the other WordPress.com features you love; emails sent to your blog followers every time you post, contact forms (perfect for RSVPs), custom domain names (like robandlaura.com instead of robandlaura.wordpress.com), customized fonts and CSS with the Custom Design upgrade (great for changing your blog title to a handwriting font), and everything else.

Forever with a custom background, custom font, and custom link color

And it works especially well with our new Milestone Widget.

Save The Date!

Forever also sports a custom design for a new widget we call Milestone. You can find it in your blog dashboard at Appearance → Widgets and it’s pretty easy to use. Just pick a title for your event, a date and time, and a special message for the big day, and you’re ready to go. Now you have a special save the date widget for your Wedding on every page of your blog.

The Milestone Widget in Forever

If that sounds pretty awesome and you want the Milestone widget available for your non-Wedding blog too, you’re in luck. We’re also making the milestone widget available to every theme on WordPress.com right now.

Enjoy Forever

To find out more about our new Wedding Theme, Forever, check out the demo site and visit the Forever theme showcase page. Or just go ahead and activate it on your brand new Wedding blog. :)

Here’s to your wedding and your wedding blog on WordPress.com. Cheers! (That means you have to kiss now.)

    I love this but wish it had been around in early 2010 for my own wedding ;) Looks great though guys. So many of the wedding websites out there right now are so hooky looking.

    Good move, WP!
    A suggestion: more such themes would help people make birth announcements and other special occasions too. After all, a fairytale wedding is just the beginning of a happily ever after :)

GEESH! This would be a (much) cheaper and personalized gift :D A good gift for an unemployed friend to give lol…

    This cracks me up…as someone who occasionally blogs about my C-R-A-Z-Y divorce, I’m wondering: Will there be a “Never (again)” theme coming soon, too? You guys always seem to do a great job of adapting to your users’ places in life…
    ;)

    The theme, however, is stunning. Nice work as always!

    So can we specify in a Milestone widget for a time period, as long as it’s a few consecutive days? Instead of just 1 day.

    I was just thinking for an event that runs over 2-3 days and make the countdown start from the lst day of event?

    Just want you to know I grabbed this theme for the makeover for my quilt blog. It’s a winner. I am using the Milestone widget to count down to local events that relate to quilts. I love the width of the column as it allows me to post up large-sized photos of quilts, and the font style is great looking (just wish it could be a titch larger for many quilters are older). I like the look, the layout, and how clean-looking it is, even with lots in the sidebar. Thank you, thank you!
