Similarly developing websites for wedding invitations and event management is another trend spreading now -a-days. There are lot of WordPress themes built and designed for wedding websites. One of them is Weddings WordPress Theme by WebDorado. Here I have shared my views after using this theme.
This theme provides a simple slider which helps you feature precious photos on front page. Then it has a rectangular photo with content box which is suitable for showing main events. Next part is the featured post part which can be used to show favorite articles from specific category on front page. It has transparent header. And the last one is gallery of photos and important posts can be selected from specific categories. This way it can easily show all important events on front page. So design wise it is good enough.

Page Load Speed:
Page load speed for wedding site may differ with the content included in it. The PageSpeed score depends on the demo page content, caching of the page, number of HTTP requests, Image sizes and lot many other parameters. I checked the Google PageSpeed of Weddings demo on Mobile and Desktop mode. The Performance is not impressive on mobile and Desktop mode. To overcome this, caching plugins are recommended named W3 Total Cache and WP Cache.
Search Engine Optimization:
This theme is not built with SEO in mind which is necessary for better search engine rank. It is advised to use Yoast SEO WordPress plugin for better SEO for the site.
I have scanned this theme with TAC plugin for authenticity of code and with Theme Check plugin for WordPress standards of theme code. TAC checks malicious code and scripts from theme. The result is as shown below:
Weddings – TAC result

This theme has passed both the tests and is set to use.
