  1. Secure RSVP Not Default Setting

    I think it is 100% unacceptable that a Secure RSVP (where random, uninvited people can't just type in their information and RSVP to your wedding) isn't the default setting. I discovered this today after sharing a link to my engagement photos on my site and discovering upon my return home at the end of the day that a bunch of new guests- who I hadn't invited, mind you- had RSVPed to my wedding. It took me YouTube videos and Google searches to finally figure out how to turn it off. Absolutely unacceptable that an open RSVP is the DEFAULT setting…

    • 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.

      • Budgeter should recalculate when line items are archived

        "I am skipping a lot of traditional wedding expenses, so when I delete items off the list in the Budgeter, I wish it would update the recommended amounts under the remaining budget items. For example, I am not having a wedding planner, and if I delete this item or enter "$0.00", I wish the tool would automatically allocate the recommended amount for a planner to other items on the list."
        This was posted by Allie in February of this year and the responding comment said it was a known issue that should be fixed by mid-2017. It was marked as…

          Hello,

          Thank you for your patience in waiting for this reply. I apologize for the delay in response to your email.

          Unfortunately that is not an option we offer at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We are always adding new options and hopefully this will be one that will be added in the near future.

        • Destination wedding checklist timeline

          The checklist planning tool is very helpful, but the timeline is off for a destination wedding. For example, save the dates need to be sent earlier to give people time to book flights. It would be great if there was a destination option that would automatically adjust the timing for the average destination wedding.

            I love this! We are always looking for ways we can improve our checklist experience and hearing from you is just perfect. I have already passed along this suggestion to our Ultimate Planner team and they will definitely look at how we can make this a goal for the future. And not just for destination weddings, but we likely need to change the scope for those that are eloping or having more than one ceremony/reception site.

            Enjoy your day!

          • Add dropdown menu personalization

            I love that you can hide or show or even add any pages to your website under "Manage Pages." However, I wish you could somehow personalize the dropdown menu that automatically is pulled down when you scroll over any page link at the top. For example, I have a registry page on my website and I wish it had no dropdown menu. I have a specific note that I want all my visitors to read at the top of the page, but nobody sees that because they don't click on "Registry." Instead hey scroll over "Registry" and see that there's…

            • I would like to be able to see the "list" of vendors in map form. So i can see how far away places will be.

              Instead of showing the photos with the location. actually show a map with toggles of where all the places are. and you can click on the toggle and see what the place is.
              I live close to NYC but don't want to go near NYC so seeing it on a map i would be able to over look that. If you ever used 'seamless' you know what I mean.

              • RSVP Emails

                You should get the response emails even if you opted out of all of the newsletters.

                Now I am not receiving any of them and I won't be able to see which guests emailed us notes - I am disappointed this was not mentioned anywhere on the site.

                • Wedding Timeline Critiques

                  I'm enjoying your Wedding Day Timeline tool. But there are some issues w/ it. It would be nice to remove items (or perhaps change their titles) such as "drop off welcome bags at hotel".

                  I would also like to be able to schedule things for two brides w/out having to refer to one of them as a groom. Or be able to refer to male members of our wedding/bridal party without referring to them as "groomsmen".

                  • Ability to match background and invitation colors

                    It is so nice to be able to have the option to match your invitations with your theme. But you can only change the color of the background on the invitations, not the website background. It would be perfect to be able to change the colors, and to any color you want so it can match your wedding colors instead of a select few.

                        • 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!

                          • Streamlined search results

                            I understand that companies pay to be featured, and that has to be carried out for those users. However, I am simply searching for my vendors in Greenville, SC, but when I search I have to sift through tons of vendors all the way in Charleston, SC which is not close by. It's very frustrating when I'm simply trying to provide feedback to my vendors, and have trouble locating them on your website.

                            • I would love to be able to export my bridal shower guest list separate from my wedding guest list.

                              My maid of honor is throwing my bridal shower for women only and she wants it to be a surprise so she's mailing themed bridal shower invitations to my guests but instead of sending her a exported list of 59 guests I have to send her a list of my total guest count for my wedding.

                                The Knot app for iPhone needs to be able to keep track of to whom one has written thank yous. Seems like this can only be done on a desktop, which defeats the purpose of the mobile app!

                                • I'm unhappy with my photo being stretched on the desk top version, but fine on the phone version. Please use the same proportions for both!

                                  Please use the same proportion for the main photos between the desktop version (super stretched out - width wise) and the phone version. Or allow us to upload a "banner" type photo along with a main photo. I don't like to see myself and my fiance all stretched out like that!

                                    This is great feedback and I appreciate you sending it over. I would love to help you get a different picture uploaded – if you choose – that might work a bit better. Send us a couple of landscape photos to choose from at help@theknot.com – attn: Keri.

                                    We are going to review this with the team to find out if we can offer a different type of proportion that will work in both places. You look fabulous all the time and we want you to see that in your Ultimate Wedding Planner too!

                                    xoxo,

                                    The Guest List Manager should allow you to seen when (date and time) as well as how (online vs. manually entered). I'm allowing guests to RSVP online but also provided paper response cards. It is VERY easy on the app to accidentally enter a response when trying to scroll down the list. I don't have any way to double check if that person RSVP-ed on their own or if I accidentally entered an RSVP when I scrolled.

                                        It would be amazing if the export list was able to download with guests being organized alphabetically by households. Additionally, if a guest has entered their contact information through the site, it does not include those guests in the exported list. This doesn't help when addressing invites for the wedding or any events associated with the wedding.
                                        Additionally, it would be helpful when a guest enters their contact information for the system to not duplicate the guest, but to have name recognition so that when a guest already exists on the list their contact information is populated to the pre-existing…
