    • [Collaborative Account] Allowing fiance and/or parents to also access wedding website and all planning resources.

      From what I can tell, the Knot does not really support a co-planning experience with your fiance. While I am a woman and so know more about the existence of site like the Knot, my fiance is extremely involved in our wedding planning, unlike the "old days," I guess, and it is really annoying that we can't have "couple" knot access. You should allow us to link our accounts so we can share some things, like the checklist and the wedding website, but not all things (like I can hide my groom gift inspiration board from him). Otherwise this feels…

        Hi and thanks so much for writing in! This is great feedback. We’ve heard similar feedback from others. Moving forward we are thinking about designing collaborative account for our couples.

        Thanks again!

      • Additional Theme Customizations

        Several aspects of the website theme could be more customizable, such as font capitalization (instead of all caps), edit size/type of "and" between names (personally I'd prefer a fancy ampersand), edit size/type of countdown (the default is so tiny), and the option for social media icons on the home page (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc).

          2018 is going to be our year for more customization in our Wedding Website themes. This is still a work in progress, but we have done some user testing and are narrowing down our top features that need some love. Thank you for the feedback! It always helps to hear from members!

        • RSVP

          Add a way to add a +1's name somewhere in the RSVP box. It populates as "Name's +1" but how are we supposed to know who they are bringing for the table cards? Or let us be able to edit the "Notes" section so we can remind them to add their guest's name.

          • Customizing the Notes section of RSVPs

            I'd love to be able to customize the categories for how guests RSVP, like changing "Notes" to something more relevant ("If you're bringing kids, let us know here!" type things).

              RSVP and Guest List Manager are going to get some love in 2018. We are listening and really are trying to turn this into a tool you will love and your guests will find works with ease. Thank you for your patience – and your feedback!

              Add an area to RSVP for guests to add the name of their Plus 1 (+1).

                This is something our team is working on. We hope to have many new features in our Guest List Manager pushed out before the end of 2016. Including being able to add your guests +1 names when they RSVP.

              • RSVP

                I was wondering if there was a way to customize the secure RSVP invites. I am using the Guest List Manager so that only people with invites can RSVP. However, it the guest enters their name differently than I did (for example if the guest types "Matt" vs "Matthew") the invite does not pop up. One way of resolving this may be to have the option to put in a nickname for the guest, so they can enter with either "Matt" or "Matthew." Is this feasible currently?

                • Budget Tool and Seating Chart

                  I'm not on board with the new budget tool/checklist/vendor list. The layout is very confusing, particularly with the budget tool. I wish there were a way to input the actual amount spent, and if it it less than recommended, the extra money not spent could be redistributed to a different category(ies) of my choice. I also use WeddingWire, and I really like their budget tool because it is set up that way, but I'm not crazy about the layout of their wedding websites/guest list manager. Perhaps I would only need to use The Knot if the budget tool were more…

                    I really appreciate you taking time to send over this review of our budgeting product and the checklist in general. We are still working on updating this part of our site so that it is something all couples feel they can use and it will be in a format that makes sense and is helpful. I have already sent your feedback along to our Product Design team for them to look at this and make sure they take it into consideration as we move forward. We hope that you are able to find The Knot is a great tool for your planning needs and that we continue to add things that will enhance the process for you.

                  • [Favorites] I'd like to be able to create + manage my own boards and add to them.

                    I really don't like that I can't create or delete boards. I have an old one that didn't transfer over well but the board itself is still there. I'd like to delete it and make a new one, but the only one I can use right now is "Things I love" which is the automatic one.
                    I also cannot move existing favorites into either of the boards. If I unfavorite and re-favorite, it just appears in the automatic board.

                    This is not helpful!

                    I used to love this site and left for a while because I was only thinking about…

                      Hi and thank you so much for contacting us!

                      We’re sorry that you’re having a bad experience with the new site and the transition of the Favorites tool. We plan to bring back the ability to create and manage your own boards.

                      For right now, you’ll only be able to manage from the one “Things I love” board. We can help to delete your old boards though, if you’d like. Please let us know if this is something you’d like to proceed with.

                      We appreciate your patience while we make these improvements.

                      Thanks,

                    • RSVP

                      I'd like to see another RSVP option for site admins to add choices to the section. For example, if a guest wants beer instead of wine or vice versa, they can choose it in the RSVP and furthermore, it gives the site admin an idea of how much of what to get. Same thing with food. If someone chooses vegetarian over meat, I'd like to see that option.

                      • RSVP form, Email Address Optional

                        Eliminate "email address" from the RSVP form OR state (optional) in the slot. Some guests do not have email addresses and it appears this info has to be filled out in order to find invite.

                        PLUS, there is no 'privacy policy' info to protect guests when prompted for their personal email address.

                        Also, guests may want to opt out of what may be an annoying email 'reminder' of a wedding.

                        • Vendor List

                          Hello,

                          I love the new "vendor list" feature but am having trouble adding vendors who do not have existing Knot accounts. I believe this is a very strong attribute for The Knot to gain data from bride clients. Whenever I type in a vendor who does not have a Knot account already, it says "Can't find vendor? Google Search". Then when you click on that, it does nothing. Am I missing something, is this still being fixed, or is there a way around this?

                          Thanks,

                            We have heard from a few other members that the vendors not on Google are not able to be added. This is an urgent ask in our Tech department and they are working on getting this added within the next 30-45 days. I know that is a lot of time when you are planning now, but we want to make sure we add it right the first time. We really do want to make sure we are providing what you need and want from our free membership sites.

                          • RSVP

                            I would like to see The Knot implement an automatic cut off option for the RSVP. Once the date has been set that option would work wonders. It will also encourage the guests to confirm attendance within the allotted time. Another reason, most if not all weddings require a head count for the services being requested for that day. A disclaimer should also be added as well.

                              I would like to move the "Things to Do" section with all of it's functionality to a new Wedding Website page I made, "Learn more about the venue," since I don't think it really belongs under "Details" and it is making my "Details" page insanely long, because all of our accommodation suggestions are on that page too.

                              Along the same lines, this would allow users to be able to duplicate the Things to Do page in order to create a Places to Eat page with the same functionality.

                              I believe this change was suggested before and was incorrectly marked as…

                                I really appreciate you checking on this idea. Yes, we do have the ability to move the sections within each sub-section, but moving the different types of sections to the different tabs is still something our Product team is working on. They know this is something that would help a lot of our members and we are eager to get this free website creator just the way it should be. It just takes time and I really appreciate you bringing them back to the front.

                                I have sent a note to our Product team to find out when they anticipate this being a live feature and if it is within the next few months, I will keep you posted.

                              • Why can't I add my own custom to-do items to the checklist?

                                It would be very helpful to be able to type in my own unique tasks to add to the checklist rather than choosing from your predetermined items.

                                  I have some checklist items that don't appear on theknot checklist. Is there no way to add free-text items?

                                    We hope that you will find most of your additional items already in our list under the Add Items section. We do not have a free-text way to input items in the system. Honestly, this was because when we did a test a couple of years back we found people were entering items already found on our list. Hopefully, we can continue to make it easier to find that what you need is already there.

                                    Let me know if there are common planning tasks that you are not finding and I can be sure to ask the team to consider adding those to the available list for all members.

                                    Guest list manager and RSVP need to be able to allow guests to specify number of adults and number of children attending. Would help alot with catering planning. Current manager won't do that. So I may have to go back to phone call RSVP's. : ((

                                    • Ability to change color themes on wedding website

                                      I wish I could customize the colors of my wedding website. Several of the website themes could work for my wedding theme, but none of them are close to the right colors. Considering I don't plan on buying the matching invitations, I feel like I should be able to customize the color theme.

                                        We definitely know this is an ask by many of our members. We continue to add more themes through the year to bring a broader theme set forward for all couples. Having the ability to change colors on our designs is something we hope to offer in the future. Thanks for asking the question – it helps our Design teams know how important this will be to bring forward.

                                        Hi There! I am sure you have received many comments regarding this! This idea is extremely unique and I haven't been able to find anything similar for Canada so if you're able to make it happen that would be awesome! Our wedding is in September so sometime this spring or summer...as I am sure it is that easy to do! (kidding) :)
                                        Thanks for reading :)

                                          Thank you for reaching out about The Knot Newlywed Fund. This is still a very new addition to The Knot and we are excited so many couples are looking at using this for their cash registry solution.

                                          Right now, the Newlywed Fund is limited to being linked to US Bank accounts both for the couple and for the guest. This means that a US account is required to set up the fund and a US issued credit card will need to be used to make a gift for a couple.

                                          We are hearing from a few couples and guests that are other places in the world and would love to know when this might open up to their countries and banks. For now, the US banks will be required, but we are definitely looking at an international option and keeping track of where these requests are coming from. This is…
