  1. Be more supportive of "legal paperwork now, ceremony forthcoming" Brides.

    I've never seen more vitriolic, self-important Brides anywhere else on the web than here on the Knot, spitting "expertise" at BRIDES who are in fact (for a number of reasons-- military, immigration, health, etc) finishing paperwork prior to the official ceremony. I find it disgusting and shocking that the Knot supports such exclusive, "mean girl attitudes" in a billion dollar industry where MANY brides are now having to do just that-- get the legality squared away before the sentimentality can occur. One such post was pinned at the top of the forum, belittling such necessities as "pretty princess days" as…

      I really appreciate you taking time to send over your thoughts and frustrations. While I am not familiar with the exact forum board you are referring to, I do understand that some of our boards are still a work in progress. We have made great strides this year to make sure our members are using the report button when they see things that are inappropriate or something that might violate our terms of service. It sounds like you are describing situations and user replies that might fall into that category.

      We are trying to make sure the forum boards are open to all viewpoints, but if it has been pushed too far, please do report the action and we can at least investigate to make sure there are no violations in play.

      I do hope you realize that while these are posted on our site through the Community page, The…

    • Same *** partners

      It is a bit rude to not have your website gender neutral. My male fiancé and I (a male) keep receiving information about wedding dresses. It is a bit insulting and not with the times

        We definitely hear what you are saying. We hear this from Dad’s on The Bump as well, and we are actively looking at how we can adjust our systems in the future so that gender and role are taken into more consideration in the planning process for weddings and babies. Thanks for your patience while we work on this.

        I hope you are still able to find a great amount of applicable information on the site in the meantime.

        Enjoy your planning!

      • I wish there was an interactive tab

        It would be nice to have an interactive tab on the website that guests can have fun with. For example, it would be nice to set up a poll for guests to pick where the couple should go for their honeymoon. It would keep guests involved in the planning process along with helping out the bride and groom by getting suggestions and opinions from guests. You could also set up a quiz that guests can take to see how much they know about the couple; like where they first met and how long they were dating before they got engaged,…

        • Glitchy website

          The idea of this site is awesome, but you really need to work out a lot of bugs. Every time I go from page to page, or a new link the website moves so slow, like the link gets stuck. It seems like the website has too much information and being inundated with vendors pics, may be causing some of the slow down? Also, I wrote a beautiful story and sadly cannot upload any of my pics to bring the story to life. It seems like this is an issue across the board with other brides, and one of the…

          • Add a Wedding Timeline Tool :)

            Can you add a tool to make a wedding timeline and then include templates to start with (such as those from your article) or create from scratch? And then have the options to download it and share it through email.

            Thanks!

            • Video advertisements

              I know your website and business is paid mainly through advertisement but when two visual-audio advertisement videos automatically play at the same time in two different areas in one webpage, making me go out of the way to search for them to close/stop the video, it makes me NOT want to visit to Knot anymore out of sheer annoyance. Paid/endorsed advertisements are a given, but please make it as much as a pleasant experience as possible.

                Thank you for sending this over and for your feedback. I was able to see how this was playing at the same time and sent over this detail to our National ads team for their review. We really try to make the advertising on the site something that can be closed or not opened if you choose and we want to make sure we do a better job at this in the future.

                I hope you are able to find a way to enjoy the site even while we work through this. Thank you again – so much!

              • The details are too limited for building the wedding website pages

                The sizing of the letters is not user friendly. It is simple to the point of being unable to make adjustments. When you size down for fit in one category (bridal party) it makes a subject in another category very small. The user should be able to build each "page" individually without it affecting another page.
                As maid of honor I've tried my best to help my friend, but this is restrictive in its simplicity.

                  Thank you for sending over this feedback. Our Wedding Website team will definitely take this into consideration as we move into 2017. Even when the change theme settings page is adjusted, I do see how you feel that the wording in all categories changes instead of just one tab or section. We hope you are able to find a way to make this work on the page for your couple. How kind of you to work on their site for them.

                • Same Gender Marriage

                  In addition to what others have said and voted with regards to offering same gender marriages customization, the language and ideas received in emails should reflect the same or be more specific to the users' profile.

                  • Multiple Selections!

                    It would be incredible to be able to be able to do multiple selections for general searches (i.e. I'd like to look at ballgowns AND a-line dresses) Rather than having to do multiple individual searches). Also being able to have multiple selections for PRICE, or even being able to type in a price range (i.e. "under $4000) would be extremely beneficial than having to sift through each individual price category.

                    • Remove right click option on photos

                      Hi, it would be good to remove the right click options on photos that we upload. Though we may be happy to share photos we may not want someone to right-click and save the photo.

                      Also would be nice to have more edit control when adding the venue option. Be able to make wording bigger or change font would be a good start.

                      Being able to change font throughout whole website would be great!

                        • Visually impaired users cannot see Light gray lines and text.

                          Make the website accessible for the visually impaired. Light gray lines and text are invisible to me, though I regularly use the Internet and web browsers.

                          Major links and text boxes should definitely stand out.

                          • Do not delete couples website

                            I understand this website is for planning a wedding, howbwr many users want to be able to view their website long after the wedding (indefinitely) as a keepsake. I just found out mine was deleted and I am totally bummed about this. A lot of people spend hours putting it together. At least give a heads up it will disappear so we can print it or copy it and save it

                            • The Knott App

                              Hello,
                              I have just seen my best friend created an app from a app called 'Appy Couple' and my idea is to transfer the site I have already created on The Knot into a mobile app.
                              I have no idea if that is a feasible thing to do for you but it would be awesome to be able to offer not only a free website, but a way to have it as an app seamlessly. The app she showed me, offered more choices on the RSVP front so I suggest for you to have a look at it.
                              Good luck…

                                This is a great suggestion. I will be sure to pass this along to our Product team that works with our mobile features for their consideration.
                                Enjoy your planning!
                                XO,

                                I will be a guest for a wedding and am looking forward to the event and seeing the venue which looks lovely. However the write up leaves some room for improvement. The grammar, sentence structure and proper word choices need attention if you wish to present a professional appearance. The bride and groom, as well as their families are well educated and I can imagine that they cringed as much as I did! Nonetheless, looking forward to the event!

                                  • Share with Spouse

                                    I feel there should be a button or feature where once someone has created an account to plan their wedding it can be shared with their spouse or partner. That way they can add and share ideas even when they're not together.

                                    • vowel renewal ceremonies

                                      Information targeted toward vowel renewal ceremonies would be really helpful as the planning is much different. For example I am looking for a ceremony location that will be for a small intimate crowd rather than the large wedding we had 10 years ago.

                                      • Vendor List

                                        Can you guys please allow us to enter our vendors in without having to do the google search for them? Browsing through here, I am seeing that other people have brought this up as well and nothing has been done about it! I find that ridiculous. I feel like it is a very easy fix and for some reason or another our feedback means nothing.
