Improvements for the guest list
The guest list information is a nightmare. If there is a guest, and that guest's plus one has a known name, and we enter it, those two names should be the only two allowed to be "searched for" and RSVP'd for instead of me having to check and recheck the guest list every time someone RSVPs. It just accepts everyone's RSVP and adds them as new guests instead of going off the list you have already created. Double, no, TRIPLE the work and a lot of frustration. Also, on the website, you cannot see the comments people make to us when they RSVP. I get them because my email is linked to the account, but my fiance is missing all the fun of those! I have to take screen shots from my phone and text them to him. Really not a nice thing. There should be a column on the guest list for their comments to show up for us.
Hi and thank you so much for your idea!
We will definitely take this into consideration. We’re always trying to improve the Wedding Website experience for couples so we welcome all of your great ideas.
We will keep this forum updated as we make improvements!
Enjoy your planning!
You should have "country" in the guest-list import template... It is defaulted to United States and only has fields for State & Zip Code. I have to manually update each of the guests country and province after I import which makes the template useless. Example screenshots attached.

This website should work hard for me, not the other way around. It is absolutely ridiculous that you have to individually select each person to say that you sent them an invite. Seriously?? I sent 219 invitations, and I had to individually click on each person to say I sent them an invite, when I dropped them all off in the mail at the same time. SO stupid-- I cannot believe that in 2019 you can't figure out how to include a "select" all button.
What was even more infuriating is getting my guest count accurate. I uploaded the same spreadsheet that I used to send out invitations because, naturally it had everyone on there. But instead of being able to just change the guest count per household, I had to INDIVIDUALLY TYPE OUT 200 additional names within the existing households! WHAT!? Seriously, whether you're planning a wedding or not-- who has time for that!?
I chose this website over others because it is the most well known, and I assumed it would have everything I needed and be the most convenient. However, it has turned out to be VERY disappointing, and I will never recommend to anyone.
Also, if you put Sam on the guest list but they put Samantha it creates the whole new guest for them and lets them RSVP to all your events, even if they orginally only had a Dance Only invite! Now I have a bunch of people that were not supposed to be invited to the dance that are coming for dinner! This is not acceptable! if the guest types the name differently it should make them try it again or The Knot gives them a couple of similar options to choose from! ...NOT a happy camper!
