  1. 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.

    • 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 wish there was an interactive tab

        It would be nice to have an interactive tab on the website that guests can have fun with. For example, it would be nice to set up a poll for guests to pick where the couple should go for their honeymoon. It would keep guests involved in the planning process along with helping out the bride and groom by getting suggestions and opinions from guests. You could also set up a quiz that guests can take to see how much they know about the couple; like where they first met and how long they were dating before they got engaged,…

        • Suggestion for filter options

          It would be really helpful to have color as one of the filter criteria. Many brides are specifically looking for dresses that are NOT white or ivory.

          Also, it would be nice to have filters/sorting options for Favorites, allowing for comparison. Thanks!

            • Offer different date formats

              Please could you give an option in settings for changing the format of your wedding date. For example the only option currently is to have it as August 29, 2016, however as I'm British I would like to show it the English way: 29 August 2016.
              Please could you add this feature?
              Thanks!

              • The order of pictures in the Album should be as they are uploaded

                How the albums organizes the pictures makes them all scattered. They should be viewed in the order that they are uploaded. I have pictures from years back next to a recent picture with how the layout is now. There appears to be three columns in the albums and I try to organize my pictures by the date they were taken, but the columns mix them up.

                  Our photo sections are currently being evaluated for some improvements. This sorting features is definitely one we are looking at and hope to see some improvements in 2016. The site should allow you to drag/drop your photos around in the columns so you can order them how you choose, but this can get a bit snippy at times. Thanks for your patience!

                • Not of fan of the "contact 5 additional vendors" feature

                  I have been very careful to make sure I am not checking the box that sends me quotes from "5 similar vendors." Yet, somehow I keep getting messages from vendors I did not wish to speak with. This has happened over and over. I am only one month in to planning and that "feature" is causing me more headache. I am getting bombarded with emails from unwanted vendors. And they are rarely actually "similar" to what I selected anyway. Vendors from outside my location I set, it's truly ridiculous. For brides who really are trying to plan their whole wedding…

                    We are really close on having this go away and a new portal will be launched so you can more accurately track your interactions with your vendors. We appreciate your feedback and definitely have heard this from others as well.

                    Be watching in the next few weeks for a big improvement here.

                    • More Custom Pages!

                      We need more than just 2 custom pages! I added my own pages because layout is important to me and your layout options are extremely limiting. I want to add a page for Key Members (my officiant and our parents) but now I can't! At least let member make 4 custom pages especially since there are so many complaints regarding layout options/errors/problems.

                        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.

                        • 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.

                          • Registers in Canada

                            Your website has been recommended to me by a number of people and I know it is being used in Canada. I don't know what rules and regulations go with this but nothing like the knot exists. I see that some places have registered with your company here but not all. I highly recommend speaking to major companies such as "Hundson's Bay" to build a Canadian connection and registry.

                            Thank you

                              I really appreciate you taking time to leave your feedback. Right now we are still focused in the US, but we are always looking at opening the areas in Canada our brides need the most. I will make sure our team has your feedback as they continue to plan for the future.

                              On your registry, however, you can still add any retailer to your list even if they are not on our partnered retailer list. Enjoy your planning!

                              • 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…

                                • 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…

                                    • Guest List Manager Capabilities (like the old version)

                                      I am attempting to export my guest list for the calligrapher, but it seems to be exporting the list as individuals. In other words, the individuals that should be grouped together as one party, are being separated. If I attempt to sort the list according to the Party Leader's Last name, it doesn't help because a number of parties have the same last name. So even though all the "Smith's" are together, the individuals are scrambled amongst different parties with that last name. I then attempted to sort the "Smith's" according to the Party Leader's First Name, to see if…

                                        I really appreciate you taking time to send in this feedback and to list the experiences you have had. In moving to our new technology, some of our functionalities were delayed. We are still looking at updating the Guest List Manager as we move into 2016. I will say those things you aren’t finding right now were not being used by most of the members using the tool, and this is why they were not in the priority list.

                                        It is good to hear you would like more of this to be in the new version and we are listening.

                                        Stay tuned and we will both see how these updates over the next few months land.

                                        I would love it if when you hit for your wedding website to not show up in google search it would actually work. I think better privacy settings would greatly be appreciated.

                                          Thanks for your feedback. We continue to work with Google, as the main search source, to see how this process can be faster. Right now they still tell us it takes 7-28 days for items to be removed once populated on their sites. I am glad you took time to send this over as it does help us in our quest to get this done as fast as possible for our members.

                                          Enjoy your planning.

                                        • Passcode for select pages, but not all

                                          I want my site to be public, I would like all of our friends to be able to see the general details, photos and other pages that we have created, however I would like to be able to have certain pages require a passcode so that we can post information specific to the event/topic, that only those which we give the code to can see.

                                          Suggested functionality is that in the builder where there is the ability to "hide" a page, give the ability to make the page passcode at that level.
