      • Update your Tipping cheat sheet!!

        Tipping reception Staff and anyone who works your wedding is not optional. It is protocol. This is false info.

        When you see this on a contract it is only because catering companies, restaurants, rental companies, florists, planners, etc. do not pay their employees very much money. And they want you to pay the rest for them.

        The Knot needs to make it known to people outside of the industry that it is industry protocol to tip all staff. Unless they ruined your day, gratuity is expected. It doesn't have to be a lot, but it needs to be something.

        • Add a regular “search” to your website.

          It’s always great to be able to just search the website using keywords. It’s a standard “must have” for a modern website.

          • 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…

            • Including Pet Care into Timeline & Checklist

              Hello!

              I wanted to reach out today to see if there a way we could add hiring pet care to the wedding timeline you provide to couples getting married?

              From my perspective, so many couples are now including their beloved fur babies in their wedding day celebrations. However, they really don’t know how to make it happen or when they should start to think about it. As a wedding day pet care supplier, this area is too often overlooked during the wedding planning phase and left to the last minute. Couples scramble to find care and then often forget things…

              • Wedding Party on it's own Tab / move sub sections

                Wedding Party and Details to the wedding should be on it's own tab. I hate that it is all under "our story" makes it very difficult for guest to find! I've seen many complaints on this over the past 3 years -- any updates?

                • When editing guestlist, after you save changes it takes you back to the top of the list. Be nice if you could pick up where you left off

                  Planning a wedding is time consuming enough without adding in unavoidable back stepping. Every time you edit guest info and hit the save button; you automatically move back to the top of your guest list. We have over 300 guest; it's frustrating.

                  • I don't want the schedule page to be the home page of my website

                    I want the option to move the default starting page *down* from the initial slot on my website. It's the only place that I can add events, and I want my schedule to not be the landing page - that's what a welcome message is supposed to be for.

                    • More Wedding Website Themes

                      I've noticed most of your themes are bright and cheery but there doesn't seem to be much for darker colored themed weddings. For instance my Fiancé and I are doing a Hallowedding and would really like our website to reflect our theme to avoid confusion with our guests. Perhaps adding the ability to submit photos to use for a background would be more efficient for these types of themed weddings

                      • Remove SSN from Newlywed Fund

                        My fiance and I were so excited to start a cash fund on our wedding website with TheKnot. However, after realizing that we had to literally give ALL of our personal information down to SSN and DOB, we felt that this was very intrusive and unnecessary. We feel that there is no need to provide an SSN if you have all bank routing and other contact information and this information should be optional to provide. Unfortunately, since it is not, we will not be using the newlywed fund via theknot.com and will look elsewhere. Very disappointed.

                          • 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.

                            • Additional post-wedding checklist items

                              I used the checklist while planning my wedding and it was a helpful resource during the planning process. However, I found the post-wedding checklist items to be incredibly lacking. There was plenty of information about changing your name (which I didn't do!) and the other items (preserving your wedding gown, reviewing vendors) are fine suggestions but not really necessary. The checklist fails to mention important things like health insurance -- most health plans only give you 30 days from your wedding date to add a spouse. More practical options would be appreciated!

                              • Add options for weddings from other cultures

                                I find it very discouraging as a person planning a South Asian Muslim wedding. There are a total of 5 halal vendors listed in New York City and there are no options to plan for a Haldi ceremony and Mehendi ceremony. I think that this website should add options for weddings that follow other cultures seeing as my website and theme is so bland and boring without the option. I want to be excited to plan with the Knot, but this issue is definitely not helping my experience.

                                • The Website was so easy to navigate before you updated the site.

                                  The update is horrible, it is so different to sort by meal, sort by first or last name. Not user friendly at all. Bring back the old website immediately! It was so great when we first started planning our wedding and having it change just prior to our wedding made it very difficult to get final counts....

                                    • Additional Instagram

                                      I absolutely love the website feature. However the one issue is that only one instagram hashtag can be added. The feature itself is amazing. Its a great way to get all the wedding photos in one place. However, I would love to add another hashtag. We planned on doing one for each of us. So i have to hope everyone either uses both or one is more popular. Being able to use both would be great.

                                      • Is it possible to enlarge the drop down menu?

                                        Is it possible to enlarge the drop down menu? Since I'm creating the web site in four languages, the drop down menu cut off. Or is it possible to add a entrying page and it will be possible to choose the language they want?

                                        • New RSVP distinguished from old RSVPs.

                                          Please make a feature that allows you to see which RSVPs are new quickly. Almost like an email is unread until you open it sorta? Maybe like a blue dot to the left that means "new" that's there until you click on it. Thank you
