  1. 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.)

  2. Add ability to make custom categories to Guest List Manager

    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!)

  3. RSVP Notes Still Not Showing In Guest List Without Exporting

    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…

    We have heard similar feedback from other couples. We do plan to add this option in the future.

  4. 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!

  5. There needs to be a search bar for guest list

    Please include a search bar in the guest management app. If I am trying to look for a specific guest, I do not want to scroll through them all and try to find one. I'd like to be able to type in the name to find it.

  6. 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…

  7. Address Auto-Fill for Members of Same Household

    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…

  8. 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!

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. Guest Manager

    The Guest List Manager should allow you to seen when (date and time) as well as how (online vs. manually entered). I'm allowing guests to RSVP online but also provided paper response cards. It is VERY easy on the app to accidentally enter a response when trying to scroll down the list. I don't have any way to double check if that person RSVP-ed on their own or if I accidentally entered an RSVP when I scrolled.

  14. Guest list manager idea

    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. : ((

  15. "Save the Date" cards should have a place on the guest list to check that you've sent that families card.

    You have invitation and thank you but you also send out save the date cards/magnets. There should be a place on the guest list so you can check this item.

  16. Guest List Manager Enhancements

    (1) It would help greatly if the export function includes NOTES & ROLE. This is currently not the case. This is very helpful when exporting for place card, escort card printing.

    (2) Add ability to sort by column/field. I'm having to expert guest list on excel to sort/filter list. This is helpful when targeting specific guest to follow up on such as viewing only "no response" guests.

    (3) Add ability to add custom fields that can be exported. Special security or destination wedding locations requires additional information to track and collect from guest to allow entry/travel to event.

  17. Accept/Regret Colors

    It would be great for the accept to show as a green background and regret as a different color so as you are scrolling through the guest list I can easily tell that the guest is unable to attend.

  18. Changing name of +1 for guests

    It would be great if the creator of the guest list can select a plus one option for the guests they are adding to their guest list, and then when what that said guest goes to RSVP, they have the option to add the name of their plus 1 (instead of the creator of the guest list having to change it later).

  19. guest

    1) separate the addresses into separate fields:

    Address 1
    Address 2
    City, State, Zip code

    this will allow the export to excel be smoother for making mail mergers

    2) Once you assign a head of household, make it so you can add another member to the household in succession (such as their dependents or spouse). Have the last name, home address information pull over from the previous entry so all you would need to add is their first name.

    A "detected" notification for when guests with duplicate names are being imported into the guest list. It took me a while to figured out why 3 guests were missing in the GLM from my csv sheet. Allow guests with duplicate names.
