Send digital invitations directly from the Knot
HI, I want to be able to send e- invites directly from the knot. Sure my parents and grandparents might like a physical invite but lets be real, my friends are all going to throw them away. I'd rather be able to send digital invites but don't want to go to ANOTHER third party website to send the invites and then direct them here to RSVP. especially since most of them have their own RSVP feature.
Hi and thank you so much for your idea!
We will definitely take this into consideration. We’re always trying to improve the Wedding Website experience for couples so we welcome all of your great ideas.
We will keep this forum updated as we make improvements!
Enjoy your planning!
Wouldn't it make sense for you to just partner with Paperless Post and integrate the RSVP's via an API? They indicate that you can match the theme of their invite with the website. Solving your evite problem through partnership would seem like a much smarter way to go!
When can this be added? It's almost end of the year! My wedding is on January next year
Would really like to see this feature added. I get financially you don't want to. But I would be okay paying per text message or email. Seriously save more more time then $$$ Or I can go with a different service.....

Is The Knot ready for e-invites. I need to know if i continue with the site or look for something more 2020 style, #climatechange
If you send out invite reminders which is email, they can actually accept or decline the invite
How could such a function not exist yet? I just spent all the time uploading my guest information thinking I can send the emails directly.
+1 for this feature idea
wow - i echo the comments below - i feel mislead by the fact that this isn't actually a feature of the website, I had to use the 'share' feature described in other comments above... and noting i am commenting on this issue more than a year later from the initial comments above... weak sauce the knot, weak sauce!
I figured out how to send e-invites...but only via email. Once you have your guests and their email addresses loaded, go to "Dashboard", then "Wedding Website" and then "Share" which is at the bottom left of the screen.
If you are going to text, I would suggested copying the link to text.

ABSOLUTELY F*ING RIDICULOUS!!
You accept all our intellectual property (database) then you DON'T allow us to use it!!
Isn't this one-sided usury (stealing)?
Keyword "trying". You are not trying at all. This is the 21st Century.
Do you know we can actually email from our phones these day??? Gesh!
Incredible waste of time. So I just gave you all my friends and family data... this should be illegal.
Dear The Knot,
As a manager of a business, I get pushing the paper invite business to keep it alive and keep your vendors happy. However, it is 2019, and as someone with a global family, the electronic invites are needed for both convenience and to make sure our families have invites in time to apply for tourist visas to the US. I hope you add this feature to keep yourselves relevant, as I have enjoyed the other features of the site; however, we will need to move our site elsewhere in order to provide the best experience for our guests.
nice information sharing
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS! Terrible.
Unbelievable. I am going to find a work around somehow because I've spent all this time now --- but what the heck ?? This seems like the most basic function - I can't believe this doesn't work - I will never recommend this site to anyone, in fact the opposite - unless this feature becomes available.

I wish I would have read this post. I have spent HOURS creating my website and adding the guest list. I JUST realized I cannot send invites directly from The Knot. This is so stupid. I regret this so much!!! What a waste of my time. Use ANOTHER WEDDING SITE, PEOPLE!!!
On your wedding website preview page, there is a share button. It opens up an email page with the option to import from your guest list. I do agree that this is a very bad user experience, since I expected the "send invite" option on the same page as the guest list page.

I signed up to use the knot because they advertise it everywhere. I saw their guest lists can input guests contact information. So I spent so much time entering our guests cellphone and email because I thought I can communicate with our guest that way directly from our wedding website. But, I regret it so much after I entered all that guest contact info. NO! They can't do e-invitation at all! I got so mad. Today my friend told me she used thejoy.com in 2017 for their website. thejoy has free online save the date, invitation, and the coolest thing is, guests can get instant updates on the website. Come on, the knot! You are 2 years behind your competitors. I saw this post and it was asked a year ago. You can't even update that evite feature even in 1 year of time?! How disappointing! Now I am thinking if i should close this account and create our wedding website with other company since they offer a more user friendly platform.
Wedding invites can only be shared from the website not the app. Use the share button on the bottom left.
I agree should be more user friendly.

This is very disappointing. I do not understand why there is a guest list function if you can not send out the invites. This was a lot of work setting up and entering all this information. Even more disappointing, The Knot does not seem to care because a year later, it has not changed and they have not responded again.

so. I just found this out too, I did find a small way around it. When you are on the wedding website page, there is a button on the bottom left that says share. You can share your entire guest list with a simple email with a link to the website. not ideal but it helped having to do a whole other e-vite
