This custom WordPress website was created for my upcoming wedding from a blank underscores theme and serves as a central point for visitors to get information about the big day, send their RSVP’s, and find gifts from a Gift Registry.
Invited visitors are able to RSVP to the event through a plugin I created from the ground up that lets them enter their information by searching their postal code. Once there, guests can edit the individual attendees in case someone cannot make it or we need the name of a guest, and add dietary restriction information, or decline the invitation altogether.
As well, the Gift Registry is hosted directly on the site, and was created by modifying the posts and comments features of WordPress itself. Each item in the registry is its own post, and once a registry item is to be marked as purchased, the guest clicks the item which then sends WordPress a comment on that post. If a single comment exists within that post, the gift is marked as purchased. With the help of the Advanced Custom Fields plugin, it became easy to add links to the actual items, indicate if they are available in-store or online, and how many of the items were requested.
