  2. Discontinuing Use

    Hello,

    My fiance and I recently signed up to use your website as a helpful guide to planning our wedding. After going through several of the different guides and tools, we realized that there are no services tailored to an LGBTQ wedding. It is quite unfortunate that you have decided not to include our community in your services. It became most obvious when we were looking at cake toppers and noticed that you do not have a single wedding cake topper for same *** couples.

    I will be deleting my account and moving on to a more inclusive service for…

    We are very sorry to see you go. We definitely are continuing to update our site and the features offered to be more inclusive and also give you the option to personalize your wedding website and information for any type of wedding.

    We are also working with the vendor that manages TheKnotShop.com for us on their product selections. While you may have found that some of the cake toppers were bride/groom specific, we also offer a wide range of inclusive toppers that are not people related. It sounds like you were looking for two men or two women as the options available, and again, we are working on adding this in the future. A few years back we did have some ‘choose the couple’ types of cake toppers and they just did not sell. We are hoping that when we source a new product it will be something that is…

  3. 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. :-)

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

    We really appreciate you taking time to send in this feedback and suggestion. I have already forwarded this on to our Guest List team for their review. They continue to work on updates and improvements for this tool and hopefully this will make it into our road map in the near future.

    Enjoy the rest of your planning!

  7. Decor Designer/Room Sketcher

    Being able to have a blue print/sketcher to actually draw the dimensions of the floor and place the tables in and tablecloths and table runners and centerpieces to see your reception and/or ceremony venue come to life before you purchase everything and then not like it

    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.

  8. Wedding Dresses

    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!

  9. Image Sizing & Editing

    Make it useable....not a good experience when you don't provide the dimensions that are needed for an image or allow it to work in common browsers such as IE and Firefox.

  10. Guest List "parties" and Seating Chart

    I'm sorry, but this new website rollout has to be one of the worst managed transitions I have ever seen - taking what is already stressful for most of us to a whole new level! Whoever walked into a staff meeting and said, hey ya'll I have a great idea, let's take a good thing and completely ruin it!...should be forced to spend 10 minutes with us disgruntled brides/grooms...and then they should be fired. I spent hours having to completely rebuild my website that I had already spent a ton of time working on, and I would have left theknot…

    I really appreciate you taking time to send this feedback. We have heard from quite a few members some of the same struggles you have expressed here. We are working on bringing back some of the features that were most loved and used. I will say that the reason some were not on the first edition of the new guest list manager is that they were not used by many of our members (like the seating chart).

    But, we do hear your frustration and are working on how we can bring some of this function back. It is going to take some time, but it is being worked on now.

    Thanks for sharing your frustration. We appreciate that you are already planning a wedding and need less stress in all these other areas.

  11. A few things that aren't very flexible

    I've designed our website with titles in lowercase, and want to keep it as a very simple look & feel. Here are a few things I've found that you might look at for future development.

    I can change the font for every section except the top bar/menu. This makes it look weird when I have consistency everywhere else.

    All of the section titles can be changed except 'Ceremony and Reception'. There's no option to change it so it looks odd.

    The 'our wedding' & 'after party' titles are lower case but in the RSVP 'Wedding' appears uppercase.

    Order of events…

  14. More stuff for men

    Hello! It would be helpful if more of the items on the checklist or more of the articles were directed towards men. I get a bit overwhelmed looking at all of the things that it appears I have to do, and it may be easier to involve men in the planning if there were more articles/activities that were either for men or generally androgynous. Thanks!

  15. Add Another Column

    I think that on the budgeter you should have 3 columns.

    Column 1: The Knot's recommended budget based upon your total budget. This way people can have an idea of where they should be spending money. This column wouldn't change from what you guys already have and I found it super helpful when I was first making my budget because I had no idea of where I wanted my money to go!

    Column 2: The user's ideal budget. This is where they hope to be spending that money and it might change as they look around, find deals, decide they…

  16. Pre-nup information

    Hello, I have been using the knot for all my wedding planning and I love it. One thing I feel is missing is the (sometimes uncomfortable) topic of pre-nup agreements. In an age where 50% of marriage end in divorce and divorces cost over $20,000, every couple should plan for this event that they hope will never happen. It would be great to add "discuss possibility of prenup" on your checklist and also provide tips on how to bring up this sensitive topic with you fiance, how to go about getting a prenup, the benefits of binding arbitration instead of…

  17. Ideas for The Knot LookBook App

    It would be great to add the following categories to The Knot LookBook App:

    -flower bouquets and arrangements, with filters for: what's in season in your area, types of bouquets, by flower type (with the option to select multiple flowers)

    -wedding decor

    -search colour schemes, it would be neat to be able to select a colour scheme and see a flow of images pertaining to that from bridesmaid dresses to decor ect.

  18. power tools in registry

    Power tools or normal tools at home to be listed in the wedding registry tools. How do you not have any hand or power tools in here? You have 10 different categories for the kitchen. You even have "Kitchen Tools". I realize the person reading this isn't to blame, but this is really really sad. I really hope I missed something, and if I did I hope I get a reply about how awful I am for being so critical.

  19. Postage stamps

    I decided to use postcard save the dates and got them all ordered - only to realize that USPS only offers one kind of postcard stamp! It might be a good idea to include postage selection and purchasing as a line item on the checklist, around the time that people are ordering the save the dates, so if they opt for custom postage it will be there when things are ready to go in the mail.
