  1. Changes to the Budgeter

    It's been stated already, but I would like to second the idea of being able to add categories that need budgets. There are several things that I will be spending money on that aren't included in this budget.

      I really appreciate you sending this over. We are looking at the Budgeter and Checklist this year – intensely – to make sure we can give you what you need in these tools. It will take a bit more time, but I will be sure the team knows this is still a very needed addition. Feel free to let us know what types of things you are adding to your budgeter on your own that we don’t include in the list already.

    • Add photos to reviews

      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.

      • 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.

            HI there!

            Where would you like the ability to use a lowercase title – somewhere on your wedding website?

            Thanks for writing in!

            Would be nice to list bridal party and email address for them.

            • Pictures loaded to the website

              How about not having the cropping tool in a forced aspect ratio? I would like to be able to see my entire face, instead of just most of it, but the picture was taking in portrait mode and not landscape, so you know, the bottom third or the top third is gone.

              • I would love to be able to have my guests donate to the Alzheimer's Association

                The Charity Program is a wonderful idea. I would love to be able to have my guests donate to the Alzheimer's Association as members of both our families are currently living with it and others have died from it. As millions of Americans are affected by Alzheimer's, I know it might be a charity near and dear to others and greatly benefit from being added to your list

                  What a wonderful cause indeed! We are reviewing our charity registries this year and hope that by summer we will have a much larger list available for you to choose from. Right now our limited list comes to us from the JustGive.org program and they continue to be a great partner with The Knot.

                • Add picture sharing to the knot

                  I think that it would be a great idea to add picture sharing to the knot. This will allow the wedding attendees to share picture directly to the wedding website giving the bride and groom a chance to see the pictures immediately.

                  • Allow for flexible "Find my invitation" searching

                    AFAIK, there are currently two options when allowing guests to RSVP - secure and unsecure.

                    If I choose unsecure, then if a guest named "Michael Smith" searches for his invitation as "Mike Smith", it will create a new guest.

                    If I choose secure RSVP, the above scenario would result in the guest being alerted that their invitation couldn't be found.

                    It would be great if you could "search" for an invitation by simply supplying a last name and allowing the user to select the relevant invitation. I understand there are potential privacy concerns, but it could easily be a configurable…

                    • Password protect one page (for wedding party access)

                      It would be awesome to be able to make a single page password protected! I'd love to have a "VIPs" page with a password that each of the bridesmaids and groomsmen would have. This way I could post all the information that the wedding party needs such as rehearsal time, rehearsal dinner information, wedding day timeline, etc. but I don't want all of that to be visible to my other guests.

                      • 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.

                        • More complete registries

                          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

                            • Links for Wedding Venue & Reception

                              No matter how many times I attempt to add the link to my venue under "Wedding Details" it will not work in a way that displays nicely (off to the left on the bottom, throwing off whole page). Additionally I see that "Google Maps" is connected to my ceremony & reception locations, but I'd like for the guests to be able to actually click on it to open up "maps" for directions from their locations. I know I've seen this on other wedding websites, so know it's possible.

                                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.

                                • Newlywed Fund in Canada

                                  Hi There! I am sure you have received many comments regarding this! This idea is extremely unique and I haven't been able to find anything similar for Canada so if you're able to make it happen that would be awesome! Our wedding is in September so sometime this spring or summer...as I am sure it is that easy to do! (kidding) :)
                                  Thanks for reading :)

                                    Thank you for reaching out about The Knot Newlywed Fund. This is still a very new addition to The Knot and we are excited so many couples are looking at using this for their cash registry solution.

                                    Right now, the Newlywed Fund is limited to being linked to US Bank accounts both for the couple and for the guest. This means that a US account is required to set up the fund and a US issued credit card will need to be used to make a gift for a couple.

                                    We are hearing from a few couples and guests that are other places in the world and would love to know when this might open up to their countries and banks. For now, the US banks will be required, but we are definitely looking at an international option and keeping track of where these requests are coming from. This is…

                                  • Email sent from the website

                                    I like that we can send an email to our guest list however it's really hard to know that the email has actually been sent! A confirmation page would be great!

                                      You should get the response emails even if you opted out of all of the newsletters.

                                      Now I am not receiving any of them and I won't be able to see which guests emailed us notes - I am disappointed this was not mentioned anywhere on the site.

                                          Hello

                                          Unfortunately our guest list manager can only export the entire list. We are still making improvements and this option may be possible in the future, so be on the look out for any updates.

                                          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!
