Cool site. I'm starting work on my own wedding site tonight and have been looking for ideas. I don't know if it would be helpful to have a wedding theme so much as an install profile similar to COD http://drupal.org/project/cod.

I'd definitely be interested in hearing which modules you used to handle various parts of the site.

Do you think you could release some of your work here. I would like to create a nearly identical Drupal 7 wedding site for myself. A backup migrate dump, module list and theme tarball would go a long way with me and the misses. :)

The site was built as a sub theme of Zen and the theme is a custom design. Besides the page that is generated by the view "Gallery" and the RSVP page that is a webform, they are all basic pages. For the pages that have comments I set that option by editing the content type. I used javascript to create the banner on the home page, but I believe views slideshow can render the same effect. Below are a few things that I did.

Special Modules Used:

ShadowBox - Used to have the nice "pop up" effect when viewing images in the galleries.
Webform - Used to have the elegant RSVP Form and Contact Form. The look of the forms were styled using css.
Views - Used to display a page of album links that linked to their corresponding page.

How the Gallery was made

  1. Created a content type named "album"
  2. In that content type I added a image file field with unlimited values
  3. I then downloaded the shadowbox module and configured the display to open the image in the shadowbox viewer
  4. Using image styles I set a fixed thumbnail width and height
  5. After that I created a simple view with a link to each of the albums
    1. Defined a path named "Gallery"
    2. I set 2 fields to be displayed
  • content:link
  • content:title
  • I set the filter by content type. The name of the content type I used for the gallery pages was "album".

    If anyone would like more details on any of these steps please let me know.

    Hi Steve, looking for wedding site I found yours and I love it. It exactly what I want something simple, clear, sober, elegant and with style.

    I tried to follow your instructions but I have many problems with the galleries, I cannot create the galley page you have. I tried create a simple view but all the thumbnail are shown at the same and I am not able to add comments. Like "about us", "the wedding" and so on. Could you help me telling me how you create these page?

    Thank in advance,

    ...and congrats on your wedding! I would definitely encourage the making of your theme an official release for D7 - I'm not a themer, but let me know if you need some help and perhaps I could be of assistance.

    Simple, elegant. Very nice. This is an old topic... I just saw it because it got bumped. Did you ever get around to releasing the theme? I don't see anything on d.o but maybe elsewhere?

    Cool site you developed. I appreciate your work. Good luck in future !

    Thanks everyone for all the great feedback from the site. It has been over a year since I created the site and I still unfortunately haven't had the time to create a reusable theme for the public. I just haven't had the time.

    I'm willing to hand over the theme to someone that would be willing to make the effort to create it. It is currently a zen sub theme. Let me know.

    Hey,

    You did a fantastic job, and I understand if you don't have the time maintain it. I can take care of it if you want me to.
    I am a great programmer, and have vast experience in drupal. Please send me what you have and I'll iron out the details before making it publicly available. You have a good sense of style. I'll send you my contact info in a private message.

    This site looks great - was hoping to use it as a launching point - I haven't touched Drupal in a few years and am verrrry rusty.

    Hi, your site is awesome!
    I'm getting married in august, which is really soon!
    I'm looking for a great theme to build a site for my wedding.
    Would you share your theme for my Wedding?
    Your site is exactly what I'm looking for, I'm pretty new to Drupal so it would be a great help to use some of your great work and personalize it for mine...
    Thanx!

    Hi Mike. Congrats on your wedding this month! Maybe not the best time to be contacting you though, but my wedding is in October and trying to get a site to do RSVP, etc. Did you have any luck?

    Its so great and i think it would be a great official drupal wedding theme infact so much so I am working on turning it into one. Design credit given to you obliviously.

    mahnster’s picture

    I'm working on a site to do exactly the same as Steve & Amber (the original post) and yet just begun. Would be great to see something of getting theme and features used. Any luck on getting something together yet?
