  1. Add a "maybe" option for invites

    It would be great if we could organize our guest list into "definitely invited" and "maybe invited." Our venue can only fit 130 people, but our guest list is 150 people, so we are planning on sending rolling invitations. I would be great to add everyone all at once to keep track, but section off the people who won't be invited unless others decline. Thanks!

    • allows meal options to be ordered in a specific way

      I would love to be able to choose the order meal options are listed. For example, I am offering a chicken finger kids meal option but I don't want that to be listed first and make it seems like I'm having chicken fingers as the first option at my wedding. Also, it would be great if the drop downs were wider because i listed all food options as a lot of people have allergies and i would love if they could see it all before selecting.

      • Add more sort and filtering functionality to Guest List

        I would like the ability to sort by all of the different columns, such as "invite sent" to see whose invites are still outstanding, or "meal option" to group everyone who ordered the same type of meal together. Being able to filter on these options as well so only the guests with certain meal options are shown would be hugely helpful. It's a pain to export to Excel every time I want to check on my guest list.

          • Merge Feature for guest list

            When you are gathering info from your guests and you want to add it to the existing list. There should be a merge contacts feature so that you don't have to erase duplicates manually.

            • Being able to send electronic invites separated between day and evening

              Hi,

              Like many folk these days we want to divide our guests in to day and evening. Once people register we should like to be able at the touch of a button send an electronic invite split between day and evening guests. Would make life so much simpler. These days we might have an email but often not an address. i would pay for that!

                • Guest List should have Search Feature

                  I used to be able to type in a name into the guest list on the app and I could search it, now I have to endless scroll and rescroll looking for names.

                  It has made completing the thank you cards so much more difficult, since cards are typically only signed with first names. So I have to scroll looking for the name instead of just typing it in.

                  Please bring back the search feature!

                  • Household management

                    Making the guest list manager import change has absolutely made the feature useless. It is a MASSIVE exercise in repetitive stress injury (Google it) having to manually go into each contact and add their head of household. You use to be able to do it in the import feature and the new Excel webpage does not allow you to do it (why?). Yet the export (in Excel format) has the data in it. Massively inconsistent.

                    Add back the feature to allow "advanced" users to use a CSV file to import their guest list manager. It really is not rocket science.

                      I really am sorry for this extra stress and inconvenience. Our Guest List Team does know this is a gap in our features offered and we are working on getting a fresh look at the Guest List and the import process just after the first of the year. I am happy to help you get these assigned if you want to send me your list – again, I do understand this is a major inconvenience.

                      Thank you for taking time to send your feedback. It will help as we press forward to making this part of our experience even better.

                      xoxo,

                    • Guest List Tweaks

                      I would love it if you could search households when adding guests instead of having to scroll through the whole list to add a new person. It would also be great to have the ability to color-code guests with customizable categories. (e.g. wedding party is pink, out-of-town guests are blue, etc.)

                        I would love to be able to make categories for my guests for organizing different groups and to make seating easier later (things like Bridal Party, Bride's Family, Bride's Friends, Groom's Family/Friends, Coworkers, etc--customizable would be great!)

                          It has been well over a year and this still hasn't been added. I am very disappointed and a little frustrated. If I wasn't playing around with the 'Export List' option and hadn't exported my guest list over to a spreadsheet, I would have never known that my guests had left me 'RSVP Notes'. Some of my guests have allergies and my wedding could have ended poorly if I did not see the list of allergies that they left on the 'RSVP Notes'. What's the point of having this option if we can't even access it easily. If I hadn't…

                          • Printing option for guest list

                            First of all I LOVE this app and how helpful it's been in organizing my wedding details! My mother-in-law is planning the Rehearsal dinner but she's not as tech Savvy as this app requires. I do also believe that it would save a lot more time as well by having an option to print the guest list out without having to download the entire spreadsheet on Excel and having to work on the cosmetics for it. I hope to see this feature soon! I know it will be very effective! Keep up the great work!

                              • Personal Reminder Emails

                                Hi,

                                Just a suggestion – as things move more and more toward technology, it's important that we do not forget the older generation. As a young person, I want to use technology and I feel that if you can sign onto FB, then you can sign onto The Knot. However, many people are used to paper invites with all the information. If The Knot and other wedding websites are pushing for paperless invites and more use of their site, there needs to be flexibility when it comes to communicating with guests. I know The Knot sends out reminder emails, but…

                                  I am definitely with you on this one. We want to make sure each couple has the ability to message their guests as often as they need, knowing that some guests will need more and others less reminders along the way.

                                  When you are in the admin page for your wedding website you are given the opportunity to send an email to your guests. You can enter their email address and send out any note you choose. You can pick one or all of the email addresses you have in your guest list, and this way you can control how often each guest gets a message from you and the details they need for your event.

                                  It sounds like we need to make this feature more visible and maybe a bit more intuitive – so thank you for calling this out. I will be sure to let the Product Team…

                                  Collecting and Inputting 250+ people's addresses has become my top stressor in planning my wedding. Here are some ideas on how The Knot can improve their services:
                                  1) Allow all members of one household to be entered in the same window.
                                  -Entry can by in the same window. Add a button labeled "add another member to this household" (or something to that effect). When it is pressed, another field can appear available for entry
                                  -After all members are added and info is saved, these members can be displayed separately in the guest list manager. I believe you already have the…

                                  • Consistency across platforms

                                    Managing my guest list with both the website and the mobile app has been a challenge since some features work differently online and on the app. Example: "+1" vs "Plus One" Grouping house holds and adding multiple people in the app is much more clear than on the web page.

                                    Thanks!

                                    • Secure RSVP Not Default Setting

                                      I think it is 100% unacceptable that a Secure RSVP (where random, uninvited people can't just type in their information and RSVP to your wedding) isn't the default setting. I discovered this today after sharing a link to my engagement photos on my site and discovering upon my return home at the end of the day that a bunch of new guests- who I hadn't invited, mind you- had RSVPed to my wedding. It took me YouTube videos and Google searches to finally figure out how to turn it off. Absolutely unacceptable that an open RSVP is the DEFAULT setting…

                                      • Alphabetical sorting by first or last name

                                        This used to be by first name, and since I have numbered and sent out my invitations you have switched the sort to by last name. I am sure that for most people this is a more natural sort, but the change was made without any notice and will make double checking the responses from everyone much harder for me.

                                        • I would love to be able to export my bridal shower guest list separate from my wedding guest list.

                                          My maid of honor is throwing my bridal shower for women only and she wants it to be a surprise so she's mailing themed bridal shower invitations to my guests but instead of sending her a exported list of 59 guests I have to send her a list of my total guest count for my wedding.
