What's your idea for The Knot?

I Want to Add Custom Items to the Budgeter

I have seen other ideas regarding the budgeter, but I'm running into the issue that I have several expenses not represented. Instead of trying to get The Knot to add a bunch of unique, fringe categories, I'd prefer just to be able to add a category, add a budget, and go from there.

        In both the budgeter and the checklist, there is no mention of a wedding dress. Why? That's a huge cost, and you need to find it very early. I guess I'll plug it into the menswear cost in the budgeter? Pretty inconvenient.
        I've run into that with a few items too. Why can't you add your own items to the budgeter to track? Outside of the dress, my wedding is also not following the standard timeline / task list. I should have the option to add things outside of the pre-populated list for both.

        Hi I was using your new version of the budgeter and erased an item by mistake but can't seem to find where to show it again... did you implement something to add or reactivate something erased by mistake?

        Many of us really want to track our expenses penny by penny and category by category, and it would be much easier to do so by having specific lines that we can add ourselves for how much we spent in certain areas. For instance, my fiance and I want to rent pool tables for our event, but nothing else (e.g. no basic rentals like chairs, cutlery, plates, etc.). Therefore, we want to see the budget line as "Game Rentals" rather than "rentals" and other things like that. The ability to use our own verbiage that we understand (even if it is unique to use) when making the budget makes the feature much more easy to use and understand.

        Budgeting is kind of very important in case you haven't noticed and not all budget items fit your wedding style.
        I should be able to edit those entries.
