What's your idea for The Knot?

Changing name of +1 for guests

It would be great if the creator of the guest list can select a plus one option for the guests they are adding to their guest list, and then when what that said guest goes to RSVP, they have the option to add the name of their plus 1 (instead of the creator of the guest list having to change it later).

        Any update on this?? Seems like it should be prioritized based on the amount of comments.

        We have many guests that we are allowing a plus one for. When they go in through the knot to RSVP, we would love for a field to populate that asks what the name of their plus one is. Instead,every time we get an RSVP with a plus one I need to text the wedding guest and ask who they are bringing which is tacky and inefficient.

        It is an absolute disgrace that you have not resolved this issue. You should be embarrassed.

        I agree! My guest count is off because I am unable to add plus ones, but if my guest adds a plus one i would need to know their name for the seating chart.

        *****ANSWER*****

        So after much frustration I found out how to add plus ones. You CANNOT add plus ones via the upload spreadsheet. You must select "Add Guest" (individually) and select "Couple" then the "Name Unknown" box appears. So it is possible, just a pain because for each guest you wish to include a plus one must be done one at a time instead of via spreadsheet.

        Hope this helps!!

        TheKnot really needs to consider adding this function, and soon. I will need to contact every single person with a plus one, which is extra work as the bride (who does not more work) and for the guests. It's been over 1.5 years since the original comment.

        This is a good idea. I am getting frustrated trying to manage the guest list, as many people have +1's and I don't know their names

      • Mackenzie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is essential! The knot needs to implement this ASAP, it can't possibly be that tricky..

      • A commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        People have been complaining about this issue for 1.5 years on this same thread. Come one The Knot! It's still a problem. Can you give an update other than a generic response?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes, Can we please do this! It would make my guest list much easier. I have guest coming from out of town and I want them to know they have a plus one and to choose food for them, but there is no way to indicate that.

        Wish I had read this prior to spending all this time creating a website. Alot of people said the Knot is the way to go - this guest list issue is a real deal killer! I want to know who the +1 s are!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        When is this expected to be fully implemented? We are using The Knot for our website, but I'm not sure if I want to use it for our guest list/RSVP if there's no way for guests to add the name of their plus one.

      • Danielle Onn commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        How can I add a plus one to someone's name in my guest list. there was an option for this and now I can't find it in the guest information. is there a setting tab or something that I may have accidentally turned off?

      • Hannah commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        How is this possibly still not done. The Knot's wedding website has been such a disappointment through and through. If we hadn't already started the site by the time we realized all of it's flaws, we would be using another service by now.

        Have there been any updates to this? This seems pretty simple to implement and necessary for place settings...

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The Knot needs to give the options to personalize RSVPs in multiple ways. First of all, if I give someone a "plus one," there is no way for me to know who they are when that person RSVPs. On the guest's end, there is no way to name your plus one, so it will just show up as "so-an-so's plus one is attending." That makes it difficult because then the bride has to contact anyone bringing a plus one to find out their name in order to put it on a placecard. This feature is absolutely ESSENTIAL to making online RSVPs work!!!! Otherwise, what's the point? If I had known this before creating my website and sending save-the-dates, I would never have used the Knot.

      • Joey commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I can't believe this feature is still not implemented. Good thing I noticed it was missing before I completely depended on it. There are so many reasons this is essential, I think we'll probably have to use a different website or service to handle our RSVPs.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree!! This feature is totally inconvenient. I have guests coming that haven't specified a name for their +1 and having an option to do it would make things so much easier.
