About This Class

** For the CSS in the Advanced Customizations lesson, download the files in 'Class Project'.

In this class I will show you every step you need to have a fully functioning live wedding website (including rsvp's) using wordpress as a platform. I will guide you through purchasing a domain name on godaddy.com, setting up the wordpress site on the chosen domain as well as setting up and designing your site. Knowledge of coding isn't required, just follow along with my instructions and even a beginner can set up a site in a few hours. I will show some advanced design customizations at the end of the lesson that use HTML & CSS, this is 100% optional but a great way to add a personal touch to your site.

View my live site example here! (**note: this example might change after the course has been published as this is my acutal wedding website for my wedding in April)

What you will need:

  1. A computer with internet acces
  2. A credit card or paypal to purchase a domain and theme
  3. Content for your website (photos, information etc)
