I was so excited about the idea of creating a template to Wordpress Theme here, so I took some time to create my first one. I chose the theme “marriage”, cause I didnt see too much themes in this area.
To my sad surprise I was rejected, and the message in the email only says that the theme is ugly, I do not understand why. I wanted to know from you what to improve on it, what did I do wrong? And is it worth I still try to improve this theme ThemeForest or should I give up from idea to post themes here…
The message: “Unfortunately your submission doesn’t meet our current minimum quality requirements for the category it was submitted to. Please consider taking some time to familiarize yourself with our current library and quality levels of popular items before resubmitting.”My theme demo: http://www.conceitodigital.net/themes/wedding/
 I post it in wrong place X.x, well I cant move it or delete…

Other than the Header title (Couple Names) remove the curly font entirely.
Make paragraph spacing more consistent. (ie, remove the indent for new paragraph)
Too many different fonts. Stick with 2 at most.
The white text shadow is too distracting, thus reducing readability.
Under ‘Blog’, I am seeing the lists, and they are terrible. Remove the italics. Remove the underline. Give it a margin-left of 50px so that it stands out as a list. I’m iffy about the bullet image, but it’s not necessarily bad.
Get rid of the top and bottom border on links.
Why are your “This is a H# tag” all the same!?
Blog posts have no dates? Nor author name?
You can’t click on individual blog pages!? What if the guests want to comment on the couple’s posts?
To be honest, everything that could make this a wedding thing isn’t happening. I don’t mean to be harsh, but I feel you need to hear this straightforward critique to advance your art. You chose a wedding theme style because there are fewer out there and you’d think they’d sell… but there’s nothing that makes this theme stand out as a wedding theme! What about photo gallery? What about wedding location information?
Please look at other wedding themes and see what they accomplish…
I wish you the best of luck
You can not imagine how happy I am with your answer. It was what I waited, I sincerely take everything into consideration. And I want to thank you very much I agreed with everything you spoke. Sometimes it is very difficult to make progress without an external view. I’ll try to improve, hugs!
Once again thank you!
