Thanks for your feedback guys! @xstortionist – I understand the typography issue, I already corrected it, but header menu? You don’t like that?

No I don’t like the header at all. For instance, lets say I only have 4 menu items and not 8… would I just have 4 menu items on the left hand side and nothing on the right hand side of the middle logo? It wouldn’t look right with 2 on each side as well, there would be even bigger spacing issues. Personally, I don’t think you took that into consideration when designing the site.

I’d also like to point out that the verticle spacing doesn’t look right either. I can see that you wanted to align the text with the logo shape points, but you should do something so the menu item text doesn’t look like there is spacing issues below the text.

One more thing, clearly you can tell that the hover state on the “home” text is not aligned properly. There is more space on the right hand side of the text. You don’t have to rush through the design, take your time and make sure you cover everything graphical detail so that it looks professional. You’re not on a timer here.

Goodluck! Give us an update!

Thanks for your feedback xstortionist, I really appreciate it. I agree with your points on vertical spacing (and it’s already corrected – just not uploaded online). However, regarding the header menu, I disagree. This theme isn’t a general theme, it isn’t trying to be everything for anybody, it’s a wedding theme. Therefore it doesn’t have to be extremely flexible, because it is extremely niched. I’ve consulted o number of people from the target audience (newly engaged, looking to purchase a wedding template), I asked them about how many pages they need, and no answer came under the number 6. As you see, I’ve been putting some thought into this for a while now, so I think we’re safe from this point of view :D

If someone needs only 4 menu items, they can still be added, and on the right side of the logo you can put contact information, a search bar, etc. Also, you can take the logo down, this isn’t a “branded” website and a logo isn’t so important as it would be in a general theme

Thank you guys!

Iamthwee, I am interested, your idea is interesting, but first I need to get the HTML version put together! So I understand the users will be able to see in the back-end who confirmed the invitation and who denied it?

Yes that is exactly it! It is going to have a custom form builder so the user can create their own forms to fill in such as guests… guest names… Eating requirements for weddings… eg.

http://stephlovesmatt.wedquarters.com/RSVP.asp

Each field will be a custom field stored in the db…

And builds on the following example

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/rsvp/screenshots/ of which I’m dissecting the code ATM .

In my opinion with a bit of polish, this would be a highly desired item.
