  1. Add a text box for guests to insert "and guest" names when RSVPing

    We would like to have names of guests that were listed "and guest" on the invitation envelope to make creating seating arrangements easier. Could a text box be added to the RSVP box that allows a first and last name to be entered.

    This will make name plates easier :)

    • I would *love* it if I could bookmark venues for easier review on future site visits.

      I am very slowly planning the event and have logged in a few times to look at venues. The problem is, I basically have to start almost from scratch each time. The filters are good, but I'd like to be able to bookmark and return to select listings.

      A comparison feature that allowed for side by side review of venue amenities would also be very helpful.

      Thank you for your wonderful site!

          This is a great suggestion. Our team is looking at the search filters this year to give them some refreshed options and I will be sure to send this along so they are aware it is an extra filter that would be useful.

        • Guest List Manager Enhancements

          (1) It would help greatly if the export function includes NOTES & ROLE. This is currently not the case. This is very helpful when exporting for place card, escort card printing.

          (2) Add ability to sort by column/field. I'm having to expert guest list on excel to sort/filter list. This is helpful when targeting specific guest to follow up on such as viewing only "no response" guests.

          (3) Add ability to add custom fields that can be exported. Special security or destination wedding locations requires additional information to track and collect from guest to allow entry/travel to event.

            • More complete registries

              I think that if you add a registry manually, guests should be able to see all items in their entirety not just the websites that sponsor the knot. I added restoration hardware today and it just shows up at the bottom like the other ones I have. No one looks at these unless they are tech savvy. the ones that are tech savvy cannot afford to buy us a rug on restoration hardware. I would like for a complete list to be added and new items should be at the top. The logos of the places were we are registered…

                I truly appreciate you sending in this feedback. Right now our partnered retailers do have a contract with The Knot that allows us to show their logo, put their placement above other retailers and link directly to their site items. The manually added registries do not have this connection and yes, it is a bit more daunting for guests to see them as ‘equal’. We continue to work with retailers to ask them to partner with The Knot and we will definitely use this feedback as we continue to offer this to retailers.

                If you want all registries to have equal weight, there is a way to unlink everyone and just add the URLs in the registry page. This does not look as clean overall, as there are no logos, but it does put all registries on equal ground. Let us know if you choose to do this (newtools@theknot.com

              • Removing Sub Menus

                Is there a way to disable sub-menus? I want guests to just click the menu buttons on the header and not have the sub-menu drop down on hover.

                • Can you add the seating chart, my wedding is in March and I am starting to get RSVPs and I want to start making a seating chart..

                  When will you have a seating chart, I noticed in the blog somewhere you said you'd have it in 2016. My wedding is in March and I have started to reseed RSVPs back and I would like to be able to start making a seating chart. Could someone get back to me on this it's very important. I'd hate to have to go to another site just to make a seating chart

                  • RSVP

                    Add a way to add a +1's name somewhere in the RSVP box. It populates as "Name's +1" but how are we supposed to know who they are bringing for the table cards? Or let us be able to edit the "Notes" section so we can remind them to add their guest's name.

                    • Adding vendors manually

                      Hi,

                      I know it lets you search vendors through Google. But I have a friend who is a planner and does not ave a website. Also, your Google search shows my church's school, not parish, so I had to choose that. You should allow manual entry of details to fix issues like this.

                        Thank you for sharing this feedback. We are continuing to work on our Vendor list abilities so that more vendors are available and the right vendors are able to be added to your lists. Right now, you are correct, that we cannot manually add in vendors, but we are listening. We know this is something that could be very helpful in many planning lists, and the team is trying to find the best way to make this work.

                        We will definitely keep you posted if this comes up in our design road map early in 2017.

                      • Registry Improvements

                        1. It's really convoluted as to how to change info that shows up on the wedding website about your registry. I am referring specifically to the Registry Note that appears on the Wedding Website. It would be nice to be able to access that directly from the Registry tab.

                        2. Something needs to be done about Registry's not partnered with The Knot. I have had several guests tell me they had no idea I was even registered at IKEA because the link is TINY and barely noticeable when next to the logos of the other two places. If nothing else,…

                        • Editable budget categories

                          I wish there were a way to re-name the budget categories or add more information. For instance, I wanted to go back and look at the detail of what was included in "tips for vendors" but could only look at the lump sum.

                            • I think there is needs to be major changes to the cropping tool for all pictures.

                              The crop tool for editing pictures for both the bride and groom as well as wedding party needs some special attention. It is ridiculous how specific the tool makes the crop, which prevents us from being able to use the pictures we would like to.

                                When I export my guest list, the address lines, city, state, ZIP, and country all export into the same cell. I wish these remained separate fields, so I could upload the excel document into my invitation template.

                                • Wedding Party - "Shared" Members

                                  The website now allows to design custom titles, however, every wedding party member must part of either side of the wedding, but not both. (Ours is a gay wedding, so it has to be either me or my partner, but the same would be for any wedding). Sometimes a wedding party member is a "shared" responsibility or part of both sides of the wedding. The website forces every wedding party member (including, for example, the Officiant) to one side or other of the couple. Our Officiant is the first friend we met mutually, so it should go to "both sides"…

                                    • [Filters] I want to see more silhouette choices when I filter dress results.

                                      I definitely think there should be more drop down choices for the dress search. Although the basics are covered, I would like to see more choices for silhouette, and maybe an active response as you plug in the choices rather than clicking apply each time.

                                        Hi and thank you so much for your feedback on The Knot Beta dress and filtering experience!

                                        We are constantly making improvements to The Knot Beta and plan to include multi-select filters and possibly the active response feature you are referring to in the dress section in the future.

                                        We will take your great feedback into consideration. Please keep an eye out for updates.

                                        Thanks again!
                                        Krista

                                        It would be great if the creator of the guest list can select a plus one option for the guests they are adding to their guest list, and then when what that said guest goes to RSVP, they have the option to add the name of their plus 1 (instead of the creator of the guest list having to change it later).

                                        • [Name Order] Allow putting my partner's name first

                                          I (the groom) created our account on The Knot, so, naturally, when you asked for "Your name," I put *my* name. However, it is traditional for the bride's name to appear first. Lacking this feature, I had to go through and redo a bunch of stuff on your site because I filled in the requested information without realizing that you would put my name first (like on our web site, with the wedding party, in the URL of the web site, etc.).
