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.

    Unbelievable. You do know you're in the business of helping two people plan something, yeah?

    How is this still not completed?! It's ridiculous to (1) assume that one person is doing ALL of the wedding planning, likely the bride, and (2) to PROMOTE PASSWORD SHARING. Look at all of the cyber attacks we've had no only in our recent elections, but also on major websites like Yahoo. For a website that stores my entire close friends & family list, links me to vendors that have my credit card information stored, this is absolutely unacceptable. I decline to continue using your services.

    Any progress on this shared account capability? Would set your site above others and provide a great function.

    Are you kidding me? I just entered our combined guest list of 288 only to realize this exact problem. Switching to Wedding Wire now...thanks for wasting my time, The Knot :(

    I am working on this with my fiance and my maid of honor and while we loved the idea of theknot - not being able to share this with all three is making it really hard.

    Please make collaborative accounts! My fiance and I are both working on the wedding and we find The Knot helpful but it is annoying that we can't both work on things at the same time. Thanks for considering this soon!

    Weddingwire.com allows this. We just hired a wedding planner, and gave us two sites to look at... this one and wedding wire..... and I'm shocked more and more reading all the ideas and comments that has been posted and voted on and still over a year later some tiny very low risk changes to your code/website haven't been implemented.

    Is this functionality available yet? Seems like its been over a year since first posted??

    I'm just starting the process now was well. We have picked out rings, but my boyfriend is waiting for the perfect time to propose. I get emails from the knot with useful information I think he could use (ring insurance, how to purpose, who pays for pre-parties...). It would be nice if he could get the same emails and be involved in the planning process with me as he has a more flexible work schedule and will be doing a lot of the ground work for us.

    Yes please!! Why isn't this standard for all wedding planning sites? My (same-***) partner and I are planning our wedding together, and it feels incredibly antiquated for us not to be able to collaborate on the same wedding without sharing passwords. We are going to keep looking for a wedding planning tool that will actually let us plan the wedding together.

    Yeah. Having separate accounts and having people be able to have approved assigned roles would be outstanding.

    Imagine how well you would be able to have more directed marketing to the bride and groom specifically if they have separate accounts. As an example, have the grooms section include the tux/suit selection and you can tie that to Men's Wearhouse or something. And then that information could be separately accessible by groomsmen.

    Your site could be endlessly more effective and profitable.

    It would also be awesome if MOHs could be granted access to some of the planning stuff that the bride has access to (this could be a checkbox for them to mark if they'd WANT to grant access) to help her out!

  • Olive commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Has The Knot ever considered adding a section for Bridesmaids/MOHs? I'm the MOH in my friend's upcoming wedding, and I have ZERO idea of what my responsibilities are, or resources I can use -- really I have no idea how to go about any of the planning for bridal shower/bachelorette/etc. because I've never been in any other wedding!

    Let there be a join category for PARENTS of the couple...a lot of us do the research!! The only choice is "Bride" or "Groom". Also I have used this site to find vendors for parties..not just weddings.

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    From what I can tell, the Knot does not really support a co-planning experience with your fiance. While I am a woman and so know more about the existence of site like the Knot, my fiance is extremely involved in our wedding planning, unlike the "old days," I guess, and it is really annoying that we can't have "couple" knot access. You should allow us to link our accounts so we can share some things, like the checklist and the wedding website, but not all things (like I can hide my groom gift inspiration board from him). Otherwise this feels very antiquated that he can't update our wedding website (without just logging into my account) or see our checklist and budget. And while obviously it could be anyone in a couple who has the main account, it seems like it seems to reinforce traditional gender norms and is not considerate of gay couples as well.

    Being that a wedding is for both the bride and groom, there should be a way to have two email address/passwords. So my fiancé/groom can get on and look at it too. I gave him mine, but it would be nice if he would be able to look as well.
