What's your idea for The Knot?

Guest list manager idea

Guest list manager and RSVP need to be able to allow guests to specify number of adults and number of children attending. Would help alot with catering planning. Current manager won't do that. So I may have to go back to phone call RSVP's. : ((

        I would like to be able to have the option to select whether the guest on my list is a child/baby. I am currently putting it in the notes but it would help with a lot to be able to filter on it. Lots of related planning around children such as table settings, food, games, etc.

        Could you make it so when a household rsvps they can put in the household name and then input the number attending with them! Ex. Mr Smith plus 3. I want numbers and not the individual names of every kid included in the family. I understand that some people need all the names but if you could make it possible to choose names or numbers that would be great!

        There should be a way to categorize guest into adults and children. It would be helpful being able to know exactly how many adult guests you have and how many children. The appropriate amount of champagne can be served, budgets can be managed better, the right amount of children's activities can be purchased, etc...It could be cool!

        These other comments are also great. The RSVP function needs to be modified as soon as possible to be more helpful and easy to get results for planning.

        It is great that you are reviewing this but would be helpful IMMEDIATELY for my purpose. Is there a possibility it could be changed in the next month?

        Thank you,

        It would be really helpful, and far more efficient, if the import spreasheet dsheet had a column for the number of +1's that each guest is allowed. It takes way too much time to click on each guest, and the +1, and save it. Alternatively, the guest list overview could have a toggle for +1 yes/no, or a drop-down to adjust the number up/down.

        The RSVP function of the website is not user-friendly. We invited 647 guests and had to enter every single one of them into the guest list. My suggestion would be to add a feature that allows the head of household to simply choose how many guests they will be bringing with them, instead of requiring the website user to enter every single person. It was very very time consuming.
