  1. Charity Choices

    To whom this may concern,

    I notice there are pro-choice organizations but no pro-life equivalent organizations as charity to be selected to support. I would love to see The Knot branch out and add equivalents instead of being skewed with certain charities that are secular.

    Is there a way to recommend a certain organization? I work at one of the largest non-profit pregnancy resource centers in Texas and was trying to find it as a charity or one of similar nature to support my passion.

    Thank you for your attention in this matter.

    Thank you,
    Rachel

      Thank you for reaching out. We do an annual review of the charities on our list and we anticipate doing this again toward the end of 2018. I will mention that we have tried to add a broader range of charities and those that might fall into line with what you were hoping to find include National Right To Life, Samaritans Purse and Catholic Charities USA.

      Feel free to email us your suggested charities at help@theknot.com. We take all suggestions into consideration during our annual review.

      xoxo,

    • Why does the checklist include "change your name"?

      While the checklist is helpful, I found it frustrating (and a bit presumptuous) that you would include "change your name" as a checklist item. I'm not passing judgment either way but there are plenty of couples that don't follow this practice. By including it, the website looks like it's taking a stance on this topic.

      Alternatively, you could have a questionnaire that a couple fills out upon signing up where you flat-out ask about name changes. Then you could include this item in the checklist for those couples that plan to change names.

        We really appreciate you taking time to send in this suggestion. The checklist is intended, as you likely see, to be a list that will encompass more tasks than one couple is ever going to truly need. We definitely know that the differences between each couple will create a need for different items and priorities.

        That being said, the suggestion to have the name change as part of our onboarding questions is a great one. I have passed this along to our Checklist team and we will definitely look at this. Until then, we hope that couples will continue to move items they don’t need off their lists, and add other items to their list from our full list when they do choose.

        xoxo,

      • Provide a summary/highlight area above newlywed funds

        Hi there!

        I am using the Knot's newlywed fund as our honeymoon fund, but I really hate how I can't explain our honeymoon or why we are using this registry above our picked funds. Would you please be able to provide this option? Most honeymoon fund sites allow you to explain yourself above or before you have to click on the actual fund.

        Thanks so much
        xx

          We really appreciate you sending over this feedback. Right now Newlywed Fund is only set up so your guests will see the details after they open each fund. We do encourage you to have a few fund tiles set up so that you can give a brief look inside to each of them. Maybe Honeymoon, Airfare, Dinner for Two, Parasailing…. whatever the adventure you dream of, it is good to give your guests some choices.

          That being said, our team will look at this and see what they may be able to open up in the future.

          • More Wedding Website Themes

            I've noticed most of your themes are bright and cheery but there doesn't seem to be much for darker colored themed weddings. For instance my Fiancé and I are doing a Hallowedding and would really like our website to reflect our theme to avoid confusion with our guests. Perhaps adding the ability to submit photos to use for a background would be more efficient for these types of themed weddings

            • Non-traditional Wedding lack of suggestion (Details below)

              Non-traditional ideas are lacking, but I've been making do.

              For instance: Bride's Escort (for those like myself where my dad passed away when I was a little girl, so my best friend is giving me away.) As an addition to, or replacement of Father-of-the-Bride.

              Song list or suggestions or article for parent-child dances because of - see Bride's Escort. No father. But I have a son. Or you know, any parent who is remarrying and has children and would like some kind of song suggestions to have a special dance with their child(ren).

              • Emails to address registrant and co-registrant

                I have noticed that emails form the knot (notifications and verifications and newsletters) only address me as a registrant of the account and it bothers me. Since its a wedding website I created I would prefer if the emails would say "Dear Bride and Groom, ...", rather than always saying "Dear Bride, ..." I would like both names (registrant and co.registrant) to be acknowledged in the email address, especially in the wedding situation, where its about the couple really.

                • Easier way for family/friends to add purchases to a registry.

                  I recently worked with my niece to build her Baby Registry through Babylist. It has great features that make it flexible. The hardest aspect of The Knot is that you cannot make purchases in the store and then go back to the registry to mark that you have made a purchase. You told me to contact the store directly but Crate and Barrell makes things very difficult. Macy's was great when I contacted them. But why not make this a feature of The Knot's own website? Thank you.

                  • Add a "maybe" option for invites

                    It would be great if we could organize our guest list into "definitely invited" and "maybe invited." Our venue can only fit 130 people, but our guest list is 150 people, so we are planning on sending rolling invitations. I would be great to add everyone all at once to keep track, but section off the people who won't be invited unless others decline. Thanks!

                    • allows meal options to be ordered in a specific way

                      I would love to be able to choose the order meal options are listed. For example, I am offering a chicken finger kids meal option but I don't want that to be listed first and make it seems like I'm having chicken fingers as the first option at my wedding. Also, it would be great if the drop downs were wider because i listed all food options as a lot of people have allergies and i would love if they could see it all before selecting.

                      • Add more sort and filtering functionality to Guest List

                        I would like the ability to sort by all of the different columns, such as "invite sent" to see whose invites are still outstanding, or "meal option" to group everyone who ordered the same type of meal together. Being able to filter on these options as well so only the guests with certain meal options are shown would be hugely helpful. It's a pain to export to Excel every time I want to check on my guest list.

                        • Customize the text about leaving a note when RSVPing would be useful

                          This isn't really a new idea, It was originally posted in 2015 but The Knot still has not addressed it. I would like to use this feature to instruct guests to let us know if they are bringing kids or have food allergies. I'm sure other couples would find this useful too. This wouldn't be hard to fix.

                          • Venue Search Issue

                            When I am searching for a venue, I filter the categories I want, and hit search. After looking through the first page of results, I click to go to the second page, and on the second page are venues that I already saw on the first page. Then if I go back to the first page, there are many venues I didn't see the first time I looked at it. It's very frustrating because I would like to know where I left off to continue, as opposed to guessing which venues I already looked at.

                            • Wedding Timeline - Custom "People"

                              Hi team,

                              It would be wonderful to have the ability to add custom "People" to the wedding timeline feature. There is this feature in the "Role" field on guests, but these custom roles do not carry over into the timeline section. Enabling this feature will allow for more options such as Best Woman, Mother/Father of the Bride/Groom, etc.

                              To me, the best option would be to allow users to select individual guests and/or groups of people. Then they could make micromanage or plan broadly. :)

                              • Contact Info on RSVP

                                When things are set up for the RSVP, it would be nice to also be able to use it as a contact information collection. I know that you have a contact list collector, but I am sending out the invitation with the link for RSVP (so I have all the mailing info) but I am thinking other info that families may be interested in collecting when getting together as a group... birthdates, wedding dates, or changing of address, etc

                                • Website Creation bug.... WHY ISNT IT AUTO SAVE

                                  There needs to be an auto save feature when writing in the different sections of the wedding website. It is extremely easy to delete paragraphs of details, stories etc. that have all been neatly compiled.

                                  I have lost so much work today because I HIGHLIGHTED the text, and poof, text box and hours of work just gone..

                                  Other option is to have a note on the website creation page, to write all of your information in a different space and copy paste it into the text boxes.

                                  Just a heads up for busy brides like me! Write it down elsewhere…

                                    • Please allow canadian bank accounts to be used for the resgistry!

                                      There is a lot of couples in Canada and the UK that use this site, It was really disappointing to find out (only after setting it up) that it was for US accounts only.

                                        • RSVP form, Email Address Optional

                                          Eliminate "email address" from the RSVP form OR state (optional) in the slot. Some guests do not have email addresses and it appears this info has to be filled out in order to find invite.

                                          PLUS, there is no 'privacy policy' info to protect guests when prompted for their personal email address.

                                          Also, guests may want to opt out of what may be an annoying email 'reminder' of a wedding.
