In today’s roundup, we get a bit mushy about the best wedding planner WordPress themes for 2017. Event planning and wedding agencies looking to launch or spruce up their web presence using WordPress can’t go wrong with any of the themes on this list.
When making our selections, we went for quality, industry-appropriate design–these products were conceived and developed especially for wedding planning and event planning agencies. Although there’s plenty of generic, free business themes you could massage and customize into a wedding planning website, these premium products are fairly priced, and we think they’ll save you time and money in the long run. You’ll ideally start impressing potential clients the moment they land on your site.
The must-have features are fairly standard. Contemporary functionality, like responsiveness, are essential. You stand to lose a lot of business if users can’t adequately browse and use your site on their iPhones. For some wedding planning agencies, WooCommerce support will come in handy: you can take payments and sell products directly from your site.
If you’re starting from scratch, and still haven’t pulled the trigger on a web host, we also recommend Bluehost. They’re inexpensive and full-featured. There’s no reason the cost of hosting a small business website should exceed your monthly home internet bill.
Now let’s look at a few of the best wedding planner WordPress themes.
Our favorite WordPress wedding planner theme is Love Story. This theme features a gorgeous, elegant, and contemporary design. Although it was developed especially for wedding planning agencies, it can easily be adapted for use by other types of event planning companies.
The theme bundles several premium extras free. Visual Composer is included, allowing webmasters to codelessly create and manage complex layouts. Love Story provides two sliders: Swiper Slider, and the omnipresent and popular Slider Revolution. Essential Grid is also included.
A useful set of custom widgets and custom shortcodes are built-in. The theme supports WooCommerce, for shopping cart functionality, and is WPML compatible to help with translation efforts. Usability tweaks like AJAX searching improve UX further.
The theme is performance optimized, easy to customize using the admin options panel, and nicely documented. Well supported and regularly updated. Highly recommended.More Info/Download
Plan My Day
Our next spot goes to Plan My Day. The design is clean and modern, with an aesthetic the developer accurately describes as “tender”. Once again, this one can be used for other sorts of event planning companies – birthdays, banquets, etc.
Visual Composer and Revolution Slider are packaged free, and like Love Story (above), WooCommerce integration provides the theme with e-commerce and online storefront features.
Three presets/homepages are available to choose from, and plenty of options are built-in to help you with branding and customization. You won’t need to touch the code at all to adjust fonts and colors.

Moments serves up a light, airy design perfect for wedding planning agencies. This is a multipurpose wedding and events theme. It’s the most versatile choice on our list, with 18 distinct homepages to choose from.
The included invitations and announcement features are a nice touch, as well as some engaging visual flourishes, like video backgrounds. As might expect, WooCommerce is fully supported, and Revolution Slider and Visual Composer are bundled free.
The expertly crafted code is optimized for both performance and search engines, helping you to secure a solid Google ranking and increase traffic to your website.
The theme is retina ready, meaning it supports high-resolution displays: graphics will look crisp and sharp no matter where you view it. There’s also a powerful options panel for managing typography, colors, and all that cool stuff.

Wedding Industry is one of the best-selling multipurpose wedding themes of all time. As such, it’s a bit older than a few of our picks, but you wouldn’t guess it from its modern design and cutting-edge feature set. This theme is regularly updated and expertly supported by its developers.
Like the Moments theme, Wedding Industry offers a variety of homepages to choose from out-of-the-box. Intuitive, drag-and-drop page building functionality comes courtesy of Visual Composer, and the options are powered by the WordPress Live Customizer.

On the tech side, Forever is high-resolution, providing crisp graphics on the latest retina devices, and fully responsive to guarantee consistent user experience on smartphones and tablets. The valid, clean code (built on Twitter Bootstrap) is SEO friendly and performance optimized.
