  1. Merge Feature for guest list

    When you are gathering info from your guests and you want to add it to the existing list. There should be a merge contacts feature so that you don't have to erase duplicates manually.

    • 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 :)

      • Address Export

        When I export my guest list, the address lines, city, state, ZIP, and country all export into the same cell. I wish these remained separate fields, so I could upload the excel document into my invitation template.

        • 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…

          • allows meal options to be ordered in a specific way

            I would love to be able to choose the order meal options are listed. For example, I am offering a chicken finger kids meal option but I don't want that to be listed first and make it seems like I'm having chicken fingers as the first option at my wedding. Also, it would be great if the drop downs were wider because i listed all food options as a lot of people have allergies and i would love if they could see it all before selecting.

            • Guest Manager is cool, but could be awesome.

              Your guest list manager (the new version) is already pretty good, but there are a few things that could make it amazing:

              1. When I imported my guests with addresses (so that they'd group together easily), everything went well for parties of 2. However, any household over 2 people had the 3rd-Nth guests split off into their own household. I could fix things manually after the fact, but that was annoying.

              2. You should give the ability to specify more than just plus 1's. For example, I should be able to list the parents I'm inviting, and then specify that…

              • Guest List Manager

                It would be amazing if the export list was able to download with guests being organized alphabetically by households. Additionally, if a guest has entered their contact information through the site, it does not include those guests in the exported list. This doesn't help when addressing invites for the wedding or any events associated with the wedding.
                Additionally, it would be helpful when a guest enters their contact information for the system to not duplicate the guest, but to have name recognition so that when a guest already exists on the list their contact information is populated to the pre-existing…

                • Ability to hide the wedding date on website until you have a date picked out

                  Like other wedding planning and registry websites, The Knot should have the ability to hide the wedding date on their website until a date is chosen. For my engagement party, I created a website with my registry information so guest would be able to navigate themselves there. Unfortunately, The Knot requires you to to pick a wedding date for your website even if you haven't picked a date! Very confusing for guests!

                  • Guest List Tweaks

                    I would love it if you could search households when adding guests instead of having to scroll through the whole list to add a new person. It would also be great to have the ability to color-code guests with customizable categories. (e.g. wedding party is pink, out-of-town guests are blue, etc.)

                    • Search bar

                      There needs to be a search bar on theknot.com website. It is extremely annoying (and time consuming) to scroll through all the articles to find te advice I need. For example, right now I am trying to find an article about who is supposed to give speeches at the rehearsal dinner. Instead of a simple search of the word "speech," I am now scrolling through TONS of advice articles ranging for bachelorette party ideas, to color choosing, to dressing a dog up for the wedding. Please add a search bar on your webiste!!

                          I'd love to have the ability for members to add photos to their reviews. I'd love to showcase some of the work of my really awesome vendors. At the same time, if a member is saying how awful something looked, it would be good to see a photo in order to determine if I think it's as bad as they're claiming.

                              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.

                              • Easier way for family/friends to add purchases to a registry.

                                I recently worked with my niece to build her Baby Registry through Babylist. It has great features that make it flexible. The hardest aspect of The Knot is that you cannot make purchases in the store and then go back to the registry to mark that you have made a purchase. You told me to contact the store directly but Crate and Barrell makes things very difficult. Macy's was great when I contacted them. But why not make this a feature of The Knot's own website? Thank you.

                                • 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!

                                  • Download a copy of website pages for a keepsake

                                    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.

                                    • RSVP email acknowledgement

                                      It would be very helpful to receive an email acknowledgement of my RSVP. I wasn't sure if I had sent the RSVP awhile ago or not. I went to the website and there was no way of knowing if I had already acknowledged or not. I acknowledged a second time, and now I don't know if I have thrown off their count or not. Receiving an email confirmation would eliminate the uncertainty.

                                      • 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'd like the option to block venues from my search list that I've ruled-out

                                          I would like having the option to basically cross off vendors I have looked into and have decided are not right for me. It's overwhelming to come back later and have to scroll through the same vendors every time.
