Doing Q & A's where people can actually submit questions and get feedback?
Here's my idea: I have a very specific question, about ideas and etiquette for my specific wedding. I keep trying to look at a bunch of different pages on your website but I can't find answers to all of my questions that all kind of work together. So my idea is to have A question and answer section where a person looking at your website can ask specific questions about their weddings get your responses and the lady that can help other people as well as the person asking the question
Let's take, for example, my questions. My wedding is on a Sunday, it is a destination wedding, it is on New Year's Day, and is in a religious venue. (I'm getting married January 1st, 2017, in Palm Beach, Florida. I already live there, but most of my guests don't, so most of them will be flying in).
I know I'm asking a lot of them to travel during the holiday and on a Sunday, but I'm Jewish so the wedding can't be on a Saturday, and this just happened to be the only day that really worked with the people-who-are-in-he-wedding's schedules
So I have a bunch of questions. When to send my Save the Date's, when to send my invitations, what time of day to have the wedding, do I need to provide entertainment for the day before, is there any kind of etiquette I'm missing for this unique situation? etc. etc.
Just a suggestion. Also, if anyone has any advice about my unique situation it would be much appreciated!
Thanks for reaching out about your wedding. We find that couples get married on all days of the week for many reasons. Here are a few answers to your questions and I hope this helps a bit.
Typically, save the dates are sent 6-7 months before your event, and invitations 6-8 weeks before. This gives time for the guests to make flight arrangements and hotel reservations. The time of day your wedding is held is really between you and the venue. If you think most people want to fly in late on Saturday or early Sunday, then maybe an evening wedding is best, but if everyone is going to be there by Friday/Saturday to enjoy the weekend, then you have the time in your hands.
There isn’t anything that says you have to provide a day before activity, but if you want to include more guests in your rehearsal dinner, by all means do it. If you want to just have that for yourself and the bridal party, maybe just add suggested activities in the area to your wedding website on The Knot. Your guests will be happy to have a few suggestions of places to see.
I think you likely have this handled and you are going to have a wonderful celebration. Enjoy all the planning for another great new year!

I don't feel like the request was really answered in the right way. But I think this would be a great idea! I have a very specific question I would like to ask the general public on TheKnot's website but I'm not finding a place to do it.
