  2. My checklist and budgeter do not include purchasing or fitting a dress

    I don't know if this is specific to me or if the website just doesn't include them for some reasons, but the checklist and budgeter do not include any info about purchasing or fitting dresses. I also noticed that my budgeter's recommended spending only accounts for less than 77% of my total budget, so I imagine that has something to do with it.

  3. Checklist percentage in app

  4. Being able to edit the checklist names

    It would be nice to be able to edit the checklist items name. Example "Book your bar service" to be able to edit it to "Purchase wine and beer for wedding" since we aren't per say having a "bar service". thanks!

    We love hearing this suggestion. Having the ability to personalize the checklist is a common ask and our Development teams continue to look at ways we can make this happen. We hope that in the future it will be a flexible list that you can adjust at will… but it is going to take more time.

    Thanks again!
    xoxo,

  5. 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,
    Keri

  6. Checklist items should be back-dateable

    Currently: If you "complete" a checklist item, a completed at date is assigned to the item. Users cannot adjust the completed at date, even if they completed it before the date they are marking it as "complete" in the wedding checklist.

    AC (acceptance criteria):

    1. Wedding checklist items should be back-dateable.
    2. An icon should be next to the completed at date which allows users to choose the completed at date of the checklist item.

    Note: This will give users additional flexibility when planning their wedding, and let them acknowledge items that they may have already completed, instead of just…

  7. Additional post-wedding checklist items

    I used the checklist while planning my wedding and it was a helpful resource during the planning process. However, I found the post-wedding checklist items to be incredibly lacking. There was plenty of information about changing your name (which I didn't do!) and the other items (preserving your wedding gown, reviewing vendors) are fine suggestions but not really necessary. The checklist fails to mention important things like health insurance -- most health plans only give you 30 days from your wedding date to add a spouse. More practical options would be appreciated!

  8. Checklist for more than one year

    I'm planning my wedding 2 years in advance (it's in 2019) so when viewing my checklist, it only shows things to-do in the 12 months before our date. However for months that pass this year (ex. September 2017) it says they're past due. This is frustrating because they really aren't past due yet. Please make an edit so the checklist has years with each month.

  9. Why can't I add my own custom to-do items to the checklist?

    It would be very helpful to be able to type in my own unique tasks to add to the checklist rather than choosing from your predetermined items.

  10. Clickable dropdown menus in navigation bar

    It would be great if the dropdown from "Planning Tools" in the top navigation bar was clickable so that I could get to the checklist and other planning features in 1 click rather than 2

  12. Purchasing Wedding Dress - Timeline

    The time you recommend to purchase your wedding dress in is NOT ACCURATE!!! You make an appointment AT LEAST 9 months in advance, so you need more time. If not SOONER!!! You want to leave room for alterations, deciding color and styles for your Bridesmaids (which can take up to 6 Months to order), the Groom and Groomsmen and also the Mothers. That takes time and you want to make sure to have your gown selected before that. It sets the tone for the whole style and look of your day, 2nd only to the venue. So, not something that…

  13. I don't like that the checklist won't let me save a completed item unless it recognizes the vendor. I want to check these items off!!!

    I don't like that the checklist won't let me save a completed item unless it recognizes the vendor. I want to check these items off because they are done and I have someone to DJ that is local and isn't on the knot vendors and shouldn't have to be to be able to check the item off my checklist! So frustrating, and I have just started putting someone random in because it won't let me save the actual person because they aren't in the system.

  14. Assume both people are actively involved in the planning process, and phrase things on the website accordingly.

    The messages that appear at the top of the to-do list are only addressed to one person. Both of us are actively using the site, but every message is addressed to the one of us who happened to set up the account. It is old fashioned and presumptuous to address in-site commentary to only one of us. (This is also related to the problem that your site only allows for one person's email address to be tied to the account.)

    We are so glad you are asking this question / providing this feedback. Our Team that works with the Ultimate Checklist and Budgeter are making great strides forward this year and part of where we are going is going to cover this very issue. We recently were able to pass forward a personalization of the list that allows couples to tell us who is getting married, so we can make sure we list a gown and tux, or two gowns or two tuxs when needed. We also are working on making sure our destination wedding couples have a few extra lines on their list as the travel piece is much more prominent when traveling away from home for your event. All this to say – we are working on being able to first, allow couples to share a login so we can recognize both people helping with the planning, and…

  16. Adding free-text items into the checklist

    I have some checklist items that don't appear on theknot checklist. Is there no way to add free-text items?

    We hope that you will find most of your additional items already in our list under the Add Items section. We do not have a free-text way to input items in the system. Honestly, this was because when we did a test a couple of years back we found people were entering items already found on our list. Hopefully, we can continue to make it easier to find that what you need is already there.

    Let me know if there are common planning tasks that you are not finding and I can be sure to ask the team to consider adding those to the available list for all members.

    XOXO,
    Keri

  17. I would like to see options for people who are not getting married at registered venues

    There aren't many options for people who are getting married in an alternative way. For example I can't check off the venue because we are getting married in our backyard. So your checklist to me is basically useless because I can't fully see that I've completed portions of the wedding planning because we are doing an alternative way without using vendors. I suggest adding options that allow you to just fill in your venue, photographer, etc. instead of having to choose from a list in order to check it off .

  18. I need a place to consolidate all of my notes. I was hoping that I could save notes for categories you already have, e.g. cake, music, etc

    Make the checklist more customizable with space for notes within each category...
    So I can consolidate all of my notes into one place.
    Wouldn't you like The Knot to be that place?????

  19. Would like to see option to import checklist due dates into Google calendar...

    Along the lines of one poster-with an interactive calendar app, it may be useful to have an option to import directly into an existing platform, if possible. I use Google calendar/gmail for everything, so this would be a nice addition.

  20. Postage stamps

    I decided to use postcard save the dates and got them all ordered - only to realize that USPS only offers one kind of postcard stamp! It might be a good idea to include postage selection and purchasing as a line item on the checklist, around the time that people are ordering the save the dates, so if they opt for custom postage it will be there when things are ready to go in the mail.
