What's your idea for The Knot?

Add a household dropdown menu

Please add a household dropdown menu in the individual list so that you can add that guest to a household without adding a duplicate guest. On the flip side, it would be great to be able to delete a guest from a household, but not the guest list overall.

        +1 Please add this functionality back asap! The new way of deleting a guest and readding them under a different household is a terrible user experience. I've been keeping my guest list in a Google Doc because the guest list feature here is not user friendly. Today, I found that the import doesn't properly create households either. I took the time to add an address for everyone since that's how the Knot claims to create households. I imported the list and it worked for less than half my guests. I really don't want to spend hours reorganizing my guest list on the Knot.

        I was considering other website/guest list managers several months ago. I ultimately picked The Knot because, overall, they seemed to have a (small) edge over the competition. A critical feature has been removed has made the Knot very frustrating to use. I wish I could switch now but it's too late.

        Wasn't this a feature already available on the website? When creating our guest list, I recall being able to move a guest from one household to another, adding one into a household, and removing a guest from a household. What happened?

        I agree with the Original Poster and comment in this thread.

        This has been a huge pain for me in trying to manage the guest list.
        The inability to move guests from one household to another, remove guests from a household without deleting them from the guestlist, and create a new household with the ability to select guests to add to it (which would them remove them from their existing household) seems like a huge gap in logic. Ex. A couple of my adult cousins still live with my aunt and uncle. I am inviting my aunt and uncles to the ceremony and meal, but my cousins only to the reception. Because they are all in the same household, I have to delete and then recreate my cousins as guests as they are all under one household currently.
        I am about ready to completely give up on trying to use the guest list and RSVP feature of the site because of the difficulty and restrictions on easily moving guests in and out of households.
