What's your idea for The Knot?

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 setting. I'm personally not concerned about someone searching and seeing which other people might or might not be invited.

        Has this issue of "strict search only" been resolved? I will be using another website if not as I don't want my guest's frustrated by the RSVP feature!
