  1. Add link to attire in invitation

    Add link to attire in invitation:

    I'm a guest to a wedding and the invitation says "Attire: Formal". The wedding's at 1 pm so I was wondering if they wanted us in Morning Dress (the daytime white tie). I asked them and they said no, dark suits would suffice. Then it occurred to me to Google your site for attire, where I found that you define the single word "Formal" as "black tie optional". I suggest you add a hyperlink in your invitations to your page on attire selection, so that guests can go directly to the definitions on your…

  2. Non-traditional Wedding lack of suggestion (Details below)

    Non-traditional ideas are lacking, but I've been making do.

    For instance: Bride's Escort (for those like myself where my dad passed away when I was a little girl, so my best friend is giving me away.) As an addition to, or replacement of Father-of-the-Bride.

    Song list or suggestions or article for parent-child dances because of - see Bride's Escort. No father. But I have a son. Or you know, any parent who is remarrying and has children and would like some kind of song suggestions to have a special dance with their child(ren).

  3. Can we please work on fixing the phone app? I hate that I spent hundreds of dollars on engagement photos only to have them be stretched out.

    First of all, I don't like the newest layout of the phone app. I liked having the photo and countdown all right there when you first open it. It's a bit more of a downer when you open the app and immediately see how much money you're dumping into the wedding. What if I'm logging in just to see the countdown? Anywho, that's not my main issue. When uploading a cover photo, it has me crop the image so that it's a square. However no matter what when you're done it's stretched out. This makes your app look very cheap…

  4. Incorrect information

    You have an article on here that is not accurat. You have a question and answer article about bridal shower etiquette. In the article you state that is it traditionally up to the bridesmaids to organize and pay for the bridal shower. This is incorrect. It’s is the responsibility of group of women who are typically friends of the mother of the bride and family members to organize and throw the shower. This is not 1950. Bridesmaids are already responsible for their dress, hair and makeup, a shower gift and wedding gift not to mention alterations...only if the bridesmaids volunteer…

    I really appreciate you taking the time to send us this note. We definitely know that many of the unspoken rules from our parents and grandparents times are not what couples are using when they get married in today’s world. This includes who throws a shower and/or who is asked to pay for wedding events. We love that every couple and their family have a unique way of approaching each of these items.

    That being said, I would love to have you send me a link to the article in question so we can ask our Editorial team to revisit this topic in their next set of article updates. We do still have very traditional couples looking for information on our site, and those that are looking for what most couples do today. I think we have room to make our articles appeal to everyone, and I am sure you…

  5. International Information

    You provide a few articles on having a destination wedding but I would love if you included more. Branch out and include vendors and info for the actually planning of a destination wedding. Obviously you can't include every vendor in every city but maybe the bigger ones like Paris, Fiji, Australia, ect. Also let the Newlywed Fund include international banks and currency!

  6. better search function across the site

    The ability to search through photos with a key word, like 'burgundy' or 'Bond Chapel' would be very useful.

  7. More inclusive options

    Hello,

    I am excited to use your website for my upcoming wedding, however, I noticed there is not a Mrs. & Mrs. option in the headline. I was wondering if you could create a more inclusive format and include other options for same *** couples.

    Thank you for considering my request.

  8. Equality

    I understand historical a marriage has been between a man and a woman. However times or evolving and I find it very disappointing that The Knot has little to no representation of LGBTQ+ weddings. I ordered the book and everything is labeled as "Bride and Groom". I should have listened to other LGBTQ+ friends who decided to not use your website or book for this reason. You need to be inclusive and consider updating your website and book in order to include all. Its disappointing to say the least.

  9. Idea: use a dictionary

    Look up the word "song" in the dictionary, please. Songs have words, lyrics which are—get this!—sung. If a piece of music has no sung lyrics, it is, in fact, not a song. I am looking for songs...

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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!

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
