  1. Couple stories-Weddings on a Budget

    I love reading the stories of couples and seeing their wedding pictures but do you ever have couple stories from couples on a budget? Always lots of pictures of fancy china and elaborately decorated venues...yes, these are the things we dream about. Our wedding budget is $7,000 and will be 30-40 people. It's a pretty indoor park venue, banquet room decorated with linens, chair covers and sashes. Yet we did lots of DIY. Plus I'm 45. It would be nice to see couple stories from lower budget weddings and maybe throw in some stories that are not your traditional 25…

      Thank you for reaching out. Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. and Thank you for being a representative for so many other couples. Yes, your story is the same as so many other couples. DIY, everyday budget, older (than the 20 somethings) and still wanting to have a grand celebration. We do hear you and see where you are coming from.

      We are definitely making an effort to broaden the scope of our diversity on the site in many ways. The diverse nature of our couples from their race to finances to style and much more. Our Marketing team is taking this seriously and we hope that in the future you will see more stories that talk to a couple – just like you.

      I encourage you to submit your photos to our Real Weddings section. This is truly where we get a lot…

    • Address Collection Allowed on Site along with RSVP

      Is it possible to have the address collection feature prompt guests who RSVP to enter their pertinent details for mailing of physical invitations?

      We would like to use the site as a "save the date" as well as for logistical data. It would be great to allow the function of collecting their data we need without having to send out the link/landing page for the "address collection" to individuals.

      Is this already possible and perhaps I'm overlooking a step or a feature not available at this moment?

      many thanks in advance

        • 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…

          • 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. :-)

              • 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…

                • Filter

                  Your filter recommendations do not seem to be working. When I filter for location or price it gives me more options not less and some offered options do not fit the filter criteria. I.E I filter for affordable pricing on a venue and there are many options for expensive and moderate on there. It's confusing and not helpful.

                  • Portrait themes/templates for Wedding Websites

                    It would be great if you could create some templates or "themes" that allow you to use a portrait photo instead of ONLY landscape. I can't even create a website or use my engagement photo bc you only have the option of using landscape photos. Very disappointing! Please fix this right away!

                        I would love to be able to save a copy of our website pages to make into a photo album or get a pdf of the pages. I put a lot of time into each of the website pages and I think it would be really neat if The Knot would offer an option to print and send a hard cover book showing each page to the couple for a keepsake.

                          • I need a place to consolidate all of my notes. I was hoping that I could save notes for categories you already have, e.g. cake, music, etc

                            Make the checklist more customizable with space for notes within each category...
                            So I can consolidate all of my notes into one place.
                            Wouldn't you like The Knot to be that place?????

                              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.

                              • Moving / Duplicating / Dragging Pre-made Sub-Sections to a Different Page during Wedding Website Creation

                                I would like to move the "Things to Do" section with all of it's functionality to a new Wedding Website page I made, "Learn more about the venue," since I don't think it really belongs under "Details" and it is making my "Details" page insanely long, because all of our accommodation suggestions are on that page too.

                                Along the same lines, this would allow users to be able to duplicate the Things to Do page in order to create a Places to Eat page with the same functionality.

                                I believe this change was suggested before and was incorrectly marked as…

                                  I really appreciate you checking on this idea. Yes, we do have the ability to move the sections within each sub-section, but moving the different types of sections to the different tabs is still something our Product team is working on. They know this is something that would help a lot of our members and we are eager to get this free website creator just the way it should be. It just takes time and I really appreciate you bringing them back to the front.

                                  I have sent a note to our Product team to find out when they anticipate this being a live feature and if it is within the next few months, I will keep you posted.

                                  XOXO,

                                  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.

                                  • Hair Styles for African American Women

                                    Hello,

                                    I think it would be a great idea to post wedding hair styles for African American brides who have natural hair. So many of us wear our hair in its natural state and we would love to have ideas on how we can style our hair on our special day. I have looked through the hairstyles that you have an none of them work for African American women who have natural hair...it sort of makes us feel left out or unimportant as it relates to your target audience.

                                      Thanks for bringing this topic to us. We will be sure our editorial staff sees this request so as they look at the styles and beauty treatments moving forward we can keep this in mind. I will say that some of our models do come from the vendors and manufacturers, but they know our brand should talk to all men and all women and keeping up with each community is key.

                                      Thank you again – I hope that we will start seeing more models in their natural hair soon.

                                      XOXO,
                                      Keri

                                      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

                                      • 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…

                                          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…
