  1. Indicate Save the Date has been Sent

    Under "Guest List" you can select whether you have sent out an invite or a thank you to that person/household. The ability to indicate that a Save the Date has been sent out to them would also be very helpful!

  2. food options

    For the reception dinner, my guests need to chose an appetizer, a main/entree and a dessert. I can only add the options all in one slot. Is there a way to make them select one from each of those categories for the same event?

  3. Guest List

    At the top of the guest list where it lists the number of yes, no, and not responded, it would be helpful if you could click those and get a filtered list (ie. click on "not responded" and be able to easily print the names that need to be contacted).
    Also the export function sucks. It keeps downloading some crazy format that has everything all jumbled up. Not helpful to send to my mom! Please create an option to download as PDF.

  4. Kids on Guest List

    It would be great to be able to mark which guests are kids. When providing numbers to caterers, they often have a discounted price for kids 12 and under, 9 and under, or 5 and under. Being able to keep track of that easier on the Knot would be awesome! Overall the guest list manager is great though.

  6. Direct link to RSVP function

    I would like to be able to have a link the directly opens the RSVP prompt so that my save the dates can include a direct link for people who just need to quickly RSVP. Thanks!

  7. Stop having dashboard banners for tasks that are already completed

    I've already booked my venues & marked those steps off on the checklist - but I keep seeing the huge "Focus on Venue!" banner every time I try to use the dashboard. Honestly, it's so annoying that I've just started using the dashboard as little as possible, and actively avoid using it.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. Move sub-sections Around

    Can you please make it so we can move sections around to different website pages (tabs). For example, I would like to move the 'Our Story' and 'Wedding Party' to another website page and only have the 'Ceremony & Reception' and 'Other Events' under website page 'Our Wedding'

    This is a common request and our team is working on making improvements every month that may include this ability some day. We want the free websites to be just what you need and really appreciate your patience and feedback here.

    We trust you have found a way to make the site work for you in the meantime. Enjoy!

  12. Pictures loaded to the website

    How about not having the cropping tool in a forced aspect ratio? I would like to be able to see my entire face, instead of just most of it, but the picture was taking in portrait mode and not landscape, so you know, the bottom third or the top third is gone.

  13. Ability to add more than one photo under a section instead of using the photo album in the Photos section

    Please add the functionality to add more than one photo under a section instead of using the photo album under the Photos section. People are less likely to go through your several photo albums on a wedding website, I would rather just add a couple of photos to the applicable section. We should at least be able to sandwich the section's text with photos.

  14. Add a household dropdown menu

    Please add a household dropdown menu in the individual list so that you can add that guest to a household without adding a duplicate guest. On the flip side, it would be great to be able to delete a guest from a household, but not the guest list overall.

  16. 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

  17. Option to remove or edit the "Send a note to the couple (optional)" section

    While this section may be useful for some couples there might be some who would rather not have this feature. Guests could potentially take advantage of this option to write in names of additional plus ones, change an invited plus one to someone else (a child/friend instead of a spouse), or add unwanted comments that they now expect to be honored, ex: music requests, seating requests, etc. It would be helpful to have the option to remove this feature or edit it to specify what information hosts are looking for, ex: any dietary restrictions/food allergies.

  18. 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).

  19. Wedding Timeline - Custom "People"

    Hi team,

    It would be wonderful to have the ability to add custom "People" to the wedding timeline feature. There is this feature in the "Role" field on guests, but these custom roles do not carry over into the timeline section. Enabling this feature will allow for more options such as Best Woman, Mother/Father of the Bride/Groom, etc.

    To me, the best option would be to allow users to select individual guests and/or groups of people. Then they could make micromanage or plan broadly. :)

  20. 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 :)
