  1. Ability to respond to RSVP notes from guests

    When guests RSVP, they also send beautiful notes, but there is no way to respond to those. Please add that feature

      We are so glad you are seeing the notes coming in from your guests. Right now there is not an automatic way to reply, but we do look forward to adding this in the future. Since we assume most couples have a way to contact their guests, you can use the SHARE feature in your website builder to send them an email, but if you do not have their email address then this would not work yet. This is the part we will be working on for a future update.

      Enjoy your planning!

    • Would like to see option to import checklist due dates into Google calendar...

      Along the lines of one poster-with an interactive calendar app, it may be useful to have an option to import directly into an existing platform, if possible. I use Google calendar/gmail for everything, so this would be a nice addition.

      • Get a quote for Vendors on Fav Board

        It would be AWESOME if "get a quote" feature was also an option for vendors saved to the Favorited Boards. It's a bummer to create your short list only to re-search it to get a quote. I know that we are directed to the vendor's website and can contact them directly but the canned message is helpful AND we wanna give the cred's to The Knot right off the bat. :-)

        • More complete registries

          I think that if you add a registry manually, guests should be able to see all items in their entirety not just the websites that sponsor the knot. I added restoration hardware today and it just shows up at the bottom like the other ones I have. No one looks at these unless they are tech savvy. the ones that are tech savvy cannot afford to buy us a rug on restoration hardware. I would like for a complete list to be added and new items should be at the top. The logos of the places were we are registered…

            I truly appreciate you sending in this feedback. Right now our partnered retailers do have a contract with The Knot that allows us to show their logo, put their placement above other retailers and link directly to their site items. The manually added registries do not have this connection and yes, it is a bit more daunting for guests to see them as ‘equal’. We continue to work with retailers to ask them to partner with The Knot and we will definitely use this feedback as we continue to offer this to retailers.

            If you want all registries to have equal weight, there is a way to unlink everyone and just add the URLs in the registry page. This does not look as clean overall, as there are no logos, but it does put all registries on equal ground. Let us know if you choose to do this (newtools@theknot.com

          • Inspiration board

            I used your site to plan my first wedding, and on your old site, there was something that was called an inspiration board or something of the likes. Anyways, what it did was call out all the major elements of the wedding, such as the dress, the bouquet, bridesmaid bouquets, ect. For each category it let you pick one photo to keep there as your ultimate inspiration photo for that element. At the time I found this function EXTREMELY helpful to ensure everything was coordinated, and easily keep track of exactly what I had picked for each piece of my…

            • Add a text box for guests to insert "and guest" names when RSVPing

              We would like to have names of guests that were listed "and guest" on the invitation envelope to make creating seating arrangements easier. Could a text box be added to the RSVP box that allows a first and last name to be entered.

              This will make name plates easier :)

              • Mobile friendly

                I think some reconfiguration would really benefit your users. I don't see a mobile friendly link that adjusts your site to fit a smaller screen. I'm having to scroll sideways to be able to see all the content that is posted. I love the stuff you have available but I'm getting frustrated with not being able to see it all in the same frame.

                • RSVP put the name of the guest on the email

                  When a RSVP email is sent it would be great to have the guests first name and last name on the email and that is the name they should use when finding their invitation.
                  So basically it is like a mail merge and you can add fields to the emails.
                  Even better if the RSVP email being sent out could have user defined fields eg {email} {firstname} and those details are taken from the guest manager information.

                  • Make it easier to navigate your Wedding Website creation and editing site

                    Make it easier to navigate the editing page by including all of the subsections in the sidebar under "Website Pages".

                    Right now if I'm editing the Travel subsection and want to start editing the Accommodations section next I have to click back on "Details" on the sidebar then click on "Accommodations".

                    It would be much easier if all of the subsections were just including in the side bar on the left. At the least, the left sidebar should include a collapsable drop-down of all of the sub-sections under each main page so you can quickly jump to editing different sub-sections.

                    • Please add keyboard shortcuts when entering guest information

                      It is hard to manually enter a lot of guests' information because the interface is very reliant on mouse clicks, when it would be pretty easy to make it more keyboard friendly.

                      When entering a new guest, the window should auto focus on the First Name text box so you can start typing immediately, you should be able to fill out/select every option using Tab, arrow keys, and space bar. You should be able to add a new guest (same party or different party) without having to touch the mouse. This would make it a lot easier to keep up…

                      • Marking a gift as "fulfilled" when previously noted as "unavailable"

                        I bought a gift listed on one of your couple's website gift registry as "unavailable" by calling the store listed directly and finding it was NOT available online but was at that point a clearance item and I bought it directly from the store and had it sent. However, there doesn't seem to be a way to notate that on your website so it reads they still need the item when they don't. Is there a way to correct this?

                          Thanks for sending in this feedback. Since we are just a holding place for the retailer information, we actually do not have a way to mark this on The Knot/The Bump without the retailer being involved. Some retailers are starting to add a feature to their sites where you can mark a registry item as purchased even when it didn’t go directly through the registry links. Amazon and Walmart are two examples of this. Please send us a quick email at newtools@theknot.com to let me know which retailer you went through and the couple that this was purchased for and we will see if we can get this corrected for you.

                          XOXO,

                                This is a great idea. We are continuing to work on a seating chart for our guest list manager, but I agree that being able to see the colors and decor would be lovely. I will be sure to pass along your comments to our product designers for them to take into consideration in the future.

                              • Removing Sub Menus

                                Is there a way to disable sub-menus? I want guests to just click the menu buttons on the header and not have the sub-menu drop down on hover.

                                • INCREASE DIVERSITY!

                                  As a woman of color planning her wedding, I found it unfortunate that the hundreds (yes hundreds) of pages of wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses and wedding accessories that I have browsed, ONLY feature Caucasian brides, bridesmaids and flower girls. It would be refreshing to see more diverse faces showcased in that realm. I'm certain that many women would find it refreshing to see greater diversity reflected on this website when it comes to brides (and grooms) on their special day. I do enjoy coming to The Knot but the sheer lack of diversity in the faces that you choose to…

                                    I really appreciate your feedback. Here at XO Group and The Knot we value everyone and really want to show this in our publications and articles. We continue to work on expanding the models used as well as the weddings featured in our Real Weddings. I hope that over the next year you will start to see a change in this regard. Our Editorial team has been given your feedback as well for their direct consideration.

                                    Thank you for being a member that wants to see us move forward – we appreciate you.

                                  • I would like to be able to add comments to my Checklist items

                                    I would like to be able to add comments to my Checklist items, and perhaps you could build in some suggested comments to add. For example, when I check off Book Reception Venue, I would like to add a comment for the name of the venue, address, website, contact, etc. That information could be fed into other areas of my account so that it is easily accessible.

                                    I would also like to be able to add/edit items on the Checklist. For example, I am not having my engagement party until later on in my engagement, so I would like to…

                                      This is a common request and we are truly working on how you can manage your checklist (and budgeter) to make it more personalized. This will eventually include the ability for you to add your own items and comments to keep track of your notes.

                                      Keep watching! I know they are still in the design phase, but it is coming.

                                      It would be really helpful, if it would be possible to select two or three options simultaneously to refine the search. For example, if I'm okay with two fabrics and I'm looking for an A-Line or Mermaid dress, I can't use your filters for that and the search is more time consuming in the end!

                                      Thanks!

                                      • I would love to be able to have my guests donate to the Alzheimer's Association

                                        The Charity Program is a wonderful idea. I would love to be able to have my guests donate to the Alzheimer's Association as members of both our families are currently living with it and others have died from it. As millions of Americans are affected by Alzheimer's, I know it might be a charity near and dear to others and greatly benefit from being added to your list

                                          What a wonderful cause indeed! We are reviewing our charity registries this year and hope that by summer we will have a much larger list available for you to choose from. Right now our limited list comes to us from the JustGive.org program and they continue to be a great partner with The Knot.

                                        • Upload a custom favicon for the wedding website

                                          I think that it would be nice to be able to upload a custom favicon. (At the very least, add a default icon.) Currently, there is no icon at all so browsers are just displaying the default. I think that this little extra detail will go a long way in adding quality and personality to our websites.
