  2. More Custom Pages!

    We need more than just 2 custom pages! I added my own pages because layout is important to me and your layout options are extremely limiting. I want to add a page for Key Members (my officiant and our parents) but now I can't! At least let member make 4 custom pages especially since there are so many complaints regarding layout options/errors/problems.

    Help!

  3. Guest List "parties" and Seating Chart

    I'm sorry, but this new website rollout has to be one of the worst managed transitions I have ever seen - taking what is already stressful for most of us to a whole new level! Whoever walked into a staff meeting and said, hey ya'll I have a great idea, let's take a good thing and completely ruin it!...should be forced to spend 10 minutes with us disgruntled brides/grooms...and then they should be fired. I spent hours having to completely rebuild my website that I had already spent a ton of time working on, and I would have left theknot…

    I really appreciate you taking time to send this feedback. We have heard from quite a few members some of the same struggles you have expressed here. We are working on bringing back some of the features that were most loved and used. I will say that the reason some were not on the first edition of the new guest list manager is that they were not used by many of our members (like the seating chart).

    But, we do hear your frustration and are working on how we can bring some of this function back. It is going to take some time, but it is being worked on now.

    Thanks for sharing your frustration. We appreciate that you are already planning a wedding and need less stress in all these other areas.

  4. Registers in Canada

    Your website has been recommended to me by a number of people and I know it is being used in Canada. I don't know what rules and regulations go with this but nothing like the knot exists. I see that some places have registered with your company here but not all. I highly recommend speaking to major companies such as "Hundson's Bay" to build a Canadian connection and registry.

    Thank you

    I really appreciate you taking time to leave your feedback. Right now we are still focused in the US, but we are always looking at opening the areas in Canada our brides need the most. I will make sure our team has your feedback as they continue to plan for the future.

    On your registry, however, you can still add any retailer to your list even if they are not on our partnered retailer list. Enjoy your planning!

  6. The Knott App

    Hello,
    I have just seen my best friend created an app from a app called 'Appy Couple' and my idea is to transfer the site I have already created on The Knot into a mobile app.
    I have no idea if that is a feasible thing to do for you but it would be awesome to be able to offer not only a free website, but a way to have it as an app seamlessly. The app she showed me, offered more choices on the RSVP front so I suggest for you to have a look at it.
    Good luck…

  7. Add Another Column

    I think that on the budgeter you should have 3 columns.

    Column 1: The Knot's recommended budget based upon your total budget. This way people can have an idea of where they should be spending money. This column wouldn't change from what you guys already have and I found it super helpful when I was first making my budget because I had no idea of where I wanted my money to go!

    Column 2: The user's ideal budget. This is where they hope to be spending that money and it might change as they look around, find deals, decide they…

  9. Guest List Manager Capabilities (like the old version)

    I am attempting to export my guest list for the calligrapher, but it seems to be exporting the list as individuals. In other words, the individuals that should be grouped together as one party, are being separated. If I attempt to sort the list according to the Party Leader's Last name, it doesn't help because a number of parties have the same last name. So even though all the "Smith's" are together, the individuals are scrambled amongst different parties with that last name. I then attempted to sort the "Smith's" according to the Party Leader's First Name, to see if…

    I really appreciate you taking time to send in this feedback and to list the experiences you have had. In moving to our new technology, some of our functionalities were delayed. We are still looking at updating the Guest List Manager as we move into 2016. I will say those things you aren’t finding right now were not being used by most of the members using the tool, and this is why they were not in the priority list.

    It is good to hear you would like more of this to be in the new version and we are listening.

    Stay tuned and we will both see how these updates over the next few months land.

  10. Passcode for select pages, but not all

    I want my site to be public, I would like all of our friends to be able to see the general details, photos and other pages that we have created, however I would like to be able to have certain pages require a passcode so that we can post information specific to the event/topic, that only those which we give the code to can see.

    Suggested functionality is that in the builder where there is the ability to "hide" a page, give the ability to make the page passcode at that level.

  11. Update your Tipping cheat sheet!!

    Tipping reception Staff and anyone who works your wedding is not optional. It is protocol. This is false info.

    When you see this on a contract it is only because catering companies, restaurants, rental companies, florists, planners, etc. do not pay their employees very much money. And they want you to pay the rest for them.

    The Knot needs to make it known to people outside of the industry that it is industry protocol to tip all staff. Unless they ruined your day, gratuity is expected. It doesn't have to be a lot, but it needs to be something.

  12. I would like a destination wedding budgeter

    There are expenses that are not captured by the budgeter for destination weddings. For example, airfare. Many of the other expense items are rolled into packages for destination weddings as well.

    Perhaps an option to select local vs destination wedding and have the appropriate line items would be nice.

  13. The guest list manager should have more options to export guest list.

    It should give options like download list by party, name, gender, etc. Right now when I export it only shows my total list but there are husband/wive that live at the same address so would be sharing an invite. That means I have to go through and manually count the number of households to figure out how many invites I need to order. I think there were options like that on the old version of the website but not the new?

Your feedback is being considered and we truly hope you see some improvements in the next few weeks/months to come. If you have a specific question that we can help you with now, please email our team at help@theknot.com. We are happy to look at your specific account and see if we can help at all.

  14. Additional Theme Customizations

    Several aspects of the website theme could be more customizable, such as font capitalization (instead of all caps), edit size/type of "and" between names (personally I'd prefer a fancy ampersand), edit size/type of countdown (the default is so tiny), and the option for social media icons on the home page (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc).

    2018 is going to be our year for more customization in our Wedding Website themes. This is still a work in progress, but we have done some user testing and are narrowing down our top features that need some love. Thank you for the feedback! It always helps to hear from members!

  16. Guest list manager update is not so great

    I lost about ten guests in the import- so I had to print out the old one and go through one by one to find out who I'm missing. This would be easier if guests were organized in the same format as the old list. I'll probably just switch to Excel from here on out. Not impressed.

  17. Filters for dress browsing- make it so that you can select more than one search option in each search category

    It would be great if when browsing dresses, we could select more than one parameter for example price- I would like to see all dresses from $500-$1200 but as it is I can only look at dresses from 500-799 or whatever it is. For all parameters it would be great to select more than one option within a category. Thanks! :D

  18. new website less intuative

    Your new website builder seems less intuitive than the previous one for both creator and user. The scroll down page instead of a sidebar is rather irritating as well as how much less control you have over page creation and layout. As someone who has used other website builders I think I will move to a platform that allows more freedom. Also, why did you get rid of so many of the backgrounds, I thought the one on my old site was beautiful and now most of them are very bland. Finally, your new program seems rather buggy, I was…

  19. I just tried the "request quote" button for several venues and found a bug.

    The prepopulated value in the datepicker is not valid.

    Steps to reproduce:

    Open TheKnot while signed into account.
    Go To Venues + Receptions -> Wedding Reception Venues.
    Open a venue.
    Click request quote.
    Click in the "Wedding Date" box
    Click outside the wedding date box (but still in the popup so that the Send Message popup does not go away).

    Expected results: Date is confirmed, everything works, and messages can be sent.

    Actual Results: Red error saying "Wedding Date is required" and an inability to Send Message

    Workaround:
    Click "My Knot"
    Click Edit Date
    Select date
    Copy Date to clip…

  20. I'd like to be able to seperate my guests into day guests and evening guests

    It would be good to be able to see who has confirmed for the day or evening, rather than seeing them altogether.
