  1. Reallocate budget

    I wish the Budgeter would allow you to eliminate unwanted categories and reallocate those funds to other wanted categories. Instead it just removes the category but still includes that amount as part of your overall budget. Frustrating! I know the site used to do this when I planned my wedding 13 years ago (I’m using it to plan my daughters wedding now).

    • Give more information on all inclusive venues

      It was hard to figure out what to budget for each category when my venue was all inclusive (food, open bar, flower, dj, cake, decorations). this also made it difficult to answer survey questions accurately.

      • Budget update

        I've removed quite a few options from my budget as i'm just doing a vow renewal and not all the pomp and circumstance. I really think the budget should update the "estimates" based on what i have left for a clearer picture. I swear it used to do that when i used it before? Just a thought.

        • New Budget Calculator

          Hello,
          I wanted to point out that your budget calculator is not great for big city weddings. I live in NYC and I put down a wedding budget of $25,000 and your calculator told me my venue should only be $2,000 - this does NOT exist in NYC. It might be nice to have two kinds of budget calculators available - one for small town USA and one for larger cities.

          • Desktop Budgeter Improvements

            The Budgeter is an awesome tool, and I like how the mobile app gives you category subtotals as well as a over/under budget total. This should be available on the desktop version of the Knot website, too! It would be even better to have an interactive pie chart report available like in Mint.com. I hope these changes will be a standard feature in both the mobile app and the desktop website soon.

            Thanks!

            Stacy S.

              • No Final Hair Appointment?

                Hi, The budgeter and checklist both include a hair trial, but neither list contain a place for the final hair appointment. There is a "nail and spa" check for nails and pampering, but in no section is there a place for the actual final wedding hair appointment. That means that this doesn't have a place on the timeline, and it is also not included in the budget with a recommended spending amount. Are you able to add this, please? Thanks!

                • New budgeter is confusing and misleading

                  I cannot stand the new budgeter page where they have now "married" your checklist, to-do and budgeting.
                  I can no longer see all the allocated expense items on one page, but instead have to click on each item individually to enter 1) what I have spent and 2) what is allocated.
                  I am VERY concerned that this update is going to cause me to make mistakes/overspend in the wrong places... and the confusion alone I am dealing with right now is adding to my stress.

                  • 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.

                      • Budgeter Calculations are Not Correct

                        The budgeter calculations are not accurate. The subtotals on a $40,000 budget add up to $41,440. The subtotals on a $50,000 budget add up to $51,800. Once corrected, it is very handy to have your estimates and actual expenditures available at all times.

                          Thank you for this feedback. Yes, the budgeter tool is an estimator and it does round to the next nearest number. This means that many times your estimates are going to be a bit higher than the budget. If you have specific feedback on how the tool could be better, please send them to us at newtools@theknot.com – Attn: Keri.

                        • 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…

                          • Budgeter

                            I love the Budgeter but two things:
                            1) I had to create my own excel spreadsheet based on the Budgeter because some items I was overbudget and other items I was underbudget - so I need to calculate how much in total I was over/under.
                            2) I think it would be great if you could find local vendors based on the budget. For example, my photographer budget is around $2K so I think it would be great if we could click on Photographers and it would take us to photographers that are within $2K budget.

                            • 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.
