What's your idea for The Knot?

Share with Spouse

I feel there should be a button or feature where once someone has created an account to plan their wedding it can be shared with their spouse or partner. That way they can add and share ideas even when they're not together.

        I'm surprised there's no place to add my fiance's email (at least not that I see?). We're planning everything together so it's a bit of a pain in the butt if I have to just relay things to him - there should be an option so the other can see when we add/adjust things in here, too. I can just have him log in under the same credentials but I would have thought you guys would be more encouraging of a couple working on this together..you know, considering a marriage is supposed to be 50/50 :)

        I gave the username and password to my fiance, niece, and sisters so they could update as needed. I know this is not necessarily "collaboration" but it allowed them to make changes and updates that I could see.

        Wedding Wire allows couples to share the same information back and forth and to receive notifications. Why hasn't the Knot caught up here?
        Men are modern now and want to be just as involved with the wedding--plus, I don't have time to make all the decisions. I need his help and he needs access to see everything I've organized.

        Did this happen? My step-daughter lives in NY and she is planning a wedding here in LA where both her Mom and Dad (and stepmom) live. Since we will be helping her from here, it would be great to have a collaborative app so all parties are up-to-date on the plans.

        totally agree... and looks like this suggestion wasn't taken seriously. Not sure how we're supposed to use this website if we don't have equal access.

      • Erika commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I can't believe you still cannot add your fiancee to the site. I downloaded both The Knot and The Wedding Wire apps upon my engagement to see which UI work best for me: one or maybe both. Thankfully The Wedding Wire can accommodate co-planning. I hope at some point, with all this feedback over the span of 3 years about wanting the option to co-plan, you'll make it a priority.

        I am so confused that this can't be shared with my partner. I thought that was the whole point of the website.

        The website should allow for both partners to login, make changes, and receive RSVP notifications. While I've shared my login information with my partner so he can access it equally, he doesn't receive RSVP information or any other notifications from the knot. In essentially all cases two people are getting married - it only makes sense for two people to get equal and easy access to theknot for planning purposes!

        I would really like for my fiance to have equal control of the account on "theknot.com". At least like the option to have two account admins vs just the one. That way she could log in with her own account but still have access to the same wedding planner. I'd have a tailored version of the grooms side and she'd have the tailored version for the bride.

        I would like for there to be a way to add a second email address to the account. Currently all email notifications, offers, etc... only go to my email. However, my fiancee would like to receive those as well, especially the ones for who has RSVP'd.

        Just throwing my voice into this wind tunnel. It really would be very helpful to be able to share these things. I won't threaten to go to another site, but... it's been 3 years

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        STILL WAITING! This is completely absurb that my fiance and I can't combine our pages. We're planning and paying for the wedding together and by ourselves so we need to see each others ideas! Not a happy girl with this.

        I was wondering where was the "add" button for my better half! I am surprised that it is assumed only one person does all the planning. So far we share a Pinterest board and would have been a great experience to share The Knot planning as well. Maybe your team should invest in a capable IT department that can make this happen or else you will be loosing a lot of future followers...

      • Rachael Maguire commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes, a collaborative account option for the fiancé as well as other people who are helping with planning the festivities would be super helpful!

      • Brandon commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Wow! This is the reason why I can't edit our website. My fiance set it up when we both down loaded the app at the same time, but she does not really enjoy that kind of stuff, and I do so I have been trying to edit it, because she only put a few things on it to test it, however I obviously can't edit unless I log in under er account, but she has since deleted the app. This is so archaic! This should not be an issue in 201. Technology is way to advanced. Lastly, why the **** hasn't this been rectified after 3 years (since this post was written and responded to by a representative of "The Knot".) I'm going to try Wedding Wire! This sucks!

        Hi there -- Has this update been made yet? I, too, find it frustrating that I cannot collaborate with my parents and fiance. I can do this on other sites. Thanks!

        I would love an app like this that could be shared with my spouse. How else are you supposed to plan the wedding together? Seams a little silly that this isn't a dual usage app.
