Jekyll theme for quickly building wedding websites


Are you or a friend getting married? Do you want a quick way to make a customizable website? This is the theme for you! When I got married, I created a website to commemorate the occasion as well provide information to my guests. Then, I had a bunch of friends get married, and they wanted me to make them a site too. So, instead of making basically the same site over and over, I decided to templatize it so that I just have to change the data in a yaml file.

Most of the original work is from and is thanks to @cbaclig.


Add this line to your Jekyll site's Gemfile:

gem "jekyll-theme-easy-wedding"

And add this line to your Jekyll site's _config.yml:

theme: jekyll-theme-easy-wedding

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install jekyll-theme-easy-wedding


The best place to start is by copying the example folder to your project, then start editing the .yaml files in _data to customize the site for your needs.

To set up your environment to develop this theme, run bundle install.

Your theme is setup just like a normal Jekyll site! To test your theme, run bundle exec jekyll serve and open your browser at http://localhost:4000. This starts a Jekyll server using your theme. Add pages, documents, data, etc. like normal to test your theme's contents. As you make modifications to your theme and to your content, your site will regenerate and you should see the changes in the browser after a refresh, just like normal.

When your theme is released, only the files in _layouts, _includes, _sass and assets tracked with Git will be bundled. To add a custom directory to your theme-gem, please edit the regexp in jekyll-theme-easy-wedding.gemspec accordingly.


The theme is available as open source under the terms of the MIT License.
