What's your idea for The Knot?

RSVP

I would like to see The Knot implement an automatic cut off option for the RSVP. Once the date has been set that option would work wonders. It will also encourage the guests to confirm attendance within the allotted time. Another reason, most if not all weddings require a head count for the services being requested for that day. A disclaimer should also be added as well.

        It would be nice if we could add a cut of time for when guests have to RSVP. Once the date has been set then the knot automatically sets a timer along with a disclaimer and once that date had passed, the option to RSVP will not be available. It may seem harsh but this will help to ensure that invited guests don't wait until last minute as most if not all weddings require head counts for the services being requested.

        I agree! Half of our guest list are kids and there is no way to add them or customize it!

        Thank you Anonymous, i'm having the same issue. I have a number of out of country people coming and they'll definitely be bringing their children with them. Some are 4 and others are 14! The appetite might need more than chicken fingers!

        I really love most aspects of this site. The only major thing I see as lacking is option for kids on the guest list. It'd really great if there was a way for RSVPing people to tick a box if they're bringing children, and then fill out the child's details - so the guest list can keep track of total number of guests including kids (in a different column). This would really help with arranging food options & seating as such!
