What's your idea for The Knot?

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. :)

    I spent almost half an hour looking for this feature! I really like the timeline structure and organization, however, I'm having to type in the notes for people to be present that I can assign a role to. This is an absolute necessity when trying to coordinate a small army of people that need to be at different places at different times. Additionally, allowing couples to add custom labels/roles really allows for all wedding and ceremony types for all people with differing family situations and needs.

    I agree. I really need to add my parents, separately, as they are not part of the timeline, especially my mother. Even just the option of adding custom roles even if they aren't preset. It is hard to make the timeline when I am having to people in the "notes" section.

    Agreed! We have a Best Woman and a Bridesman, and there's def a Bridesman tag but no Best Woman tag :( Parent tags would also be helpful.

    It's really important to me to be able to provide a timeline for Parents, and their schedule tends to differ from the guests.

    I agree!! I would like to add my witnesses and officiant to the timeline events.
