Add Text Alignment to Wedding Websites
Currently, most of our Wedding Website designs are not offering the ability to align text in a custom fashion. We would love to hear from our Couples that are designing their sites about this feature. Let us know if you enjoy having the alignment decided for you or if you still see a need for us to allow this customization. We need your feedback.
Thank you for taking time to give your feedback.
Thank you for checking in. Unfortunately we do not have an update yet for this idea yet. We’re always trying to improve the Wedding Website experience for couples so we welcome all of your great ideas.
We will continue to keep this forum updated as we make improvements!
Enjoy your planning!
Your Customer Experience Team

It's very frustrating - the backend's functionality has changed since we created our website and now the one section that is not aligned like the rest just looks very weird. We lost the ability to edit certain areas and it doesn't make any sense as to why you would take them away! Why not make it as easy as possible for couples to make basic edits to their website?? Who is making these decisions?
Yes - it's very beneficial and necessary to have text alignment as an option. I regret not looking into this before printing the website on my save the dates. Please add this functionality back. Many sections are unreadable with center-justified text.
It's very frustrating that the button to justify text exists, and that it doesn't work. If you're not going to offer it, don't make it look like you do.

Probably the worst look on our website is having the pictures of our wedding party in the center with their names left aligned underneath them. Not sure who made that design decision, but it should be fixed immediately.
Please change the functionality back to make it be able to center the details. This was correct a month ago, now it looks stupid on the left while everything else is centered.

Just started a website, adding information about travel. On the editing page, everything looks good. I have options for alignment and they seem to work. When I preview the site, it is all centered, regardless of which alignment I chose earlier.
Is this a bug in just the preview area?
Alex Jackson commented
This was previously an option, but then it was removed. For the all the weddings I have been too, I have never viewed other couples website's on my phone, I have always used my computer. So to use the reasoning of removing the ability to add code to make the app more mobile friendly is unfortunate.
I would like to see this re-added as an option as I am now not happy with my website because there are parts that no longer flow together.
My fiance doesn't care about design things, but when he saw that we couldn't center information under all the other centered information, he thought it looked like trash. Why would you create a website like this that doesn't allow the use to customize the look. You have all other information centered but not the details we add? Who thought that was a good idea?
In the my story section the formatting doesn't actually apply when viewing the website - including alignment, bold.
I was able to bold and center my text last month, but now it is off to the left and looks like absolute trash!! I would have used Zola had I known we couldn't edit our own text. The email I got back from The Knot Support said "We want to make sure your site appears the best on both desktop and mobile for your guests." but this is NOT making sure it appears best!!!! It looks ridiculous. If all of these people are complaining about it, why not add it as a feature! I work at a marketing firm and we are constantly updating our software so people can edit their own websites as they see fit! And it's incredibly easy to add this function!!
Which designs allow custom text alignment? Or are there any that use the same alignment throughout the site?

I am okay with having the alignment decided for me if the whole page is exactly the same. Having one section that is aligned to the left while the rest of the page is aligned in the center looks really weird. It can be a page by page design, but definitely at least keeping the entire page aligned the same way would be the best option! The entire "The Wedding" section of my website is aligned in the center, except for the "Event Description", which I only put a few words in, so it is those few words sitting off to the left of everything at the bottom. Looks really weird to the eye. If the save the dates hadn't already gone out, I would delete that section from my website, but now I don't want to mess with it, so as not to confuse people who have already visited the site beforehand.
if we didn't already send out invitations with our wedding website we would have created one on a different platform. it make the website look like trash. it's really that big of a deal.
It is incredibly frustrating that you made a change to something that was not broken. I made my website in summer 2019, and had no issues and was very pleased with the way it looked. Now, a month before my wedding I’m needing to update some of the info, and now the formatting is completely off and it looks unprofessional. Don’t fix something that’s not broken. Please return this to the original format.
It's crazy this still hasn't been fixed, despite the 100% unanimous agreement from users that they want this feature back.
All I have to say is there is a reason theKnot is not longer on the top of any 2020 wedding website recommendation blogs. Zola and Joy are beating them in nearly every list, and probably for a good reason.
Please can you share a fix for this? This is seriously an essential feature....Most of our website remains centered with an exception in the optional text areas. This was centered and now will not allow me to re-center.

Agreed, this new feature messed up what I already created and I have already sent out save the dates so I am unable to make a new website elsewhere. My website now looks disorganized and not as good as when I had created it.. I would prefer it to go back to how it was with the ability to have more customizations, especially centering text.. It is also much less user friendly now... So frustrating..
I find it comical that you posted this thread on October 29, 2019 and since then it has gotten 147 votes and EVERY SINGLE COMMENT states how we hate not having text align and to bring it back, yet YOU HAVEN'T DONE ANYTHING TO FIX IT FOR US. What is the point of asking for our feedback if you are not taking it into consideration?! My customer service experience with The Knot has been truly terrible and if I didn't already send my save-the-dates with my website on them I would have been long gone. This is sad and unacceptable.
Unfortunately, I emailed The Knot and asked about aligning the text on my website, and their response was that they removed this function because, "We want to make sure your site appears the best on both desktop and mobile for your guests."
It's just an ironic response, as the center being aligned would certainly appear the best to our guests. Really disappointed that this isn't available.
I am having trouble aligning the event description for the event describing my wedding. Everything else has been centered correctly thus far.
Please please bring back the option to customize. I recently reached out to the team and the only response was to make sure my browser was up to date. I did that and downloaded a new browser just to see this thread that its actually a customization issue from The Knot! .... Everything BUT the location of my church and the address is centered. Please please please fix this.
