Options for Same *** Couples
I love how the Knot makes known they support same-*** couples! I am utilizing the checklist and budgeter and noticing that the times identified in those tools are for hetero couples. I think it would be a great idea to be able to customize your profile for what kinds of outfits you and your fiance will be wearing so that can be reflected in the tools. This will truly make the Knot more friendly for LGBTQ+ couples getting married!
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!

I appreciate knowing what vendors are LGBT friendly (that's huge), but the site overall just needs to be looked over. Why can't I put two brides as an option on the day-of wedding planner?
When doing the timeline, it autofills who will be involved in each step. That's fine, except for the fact that I continually have to change groom because I am marrying another woman. Is there a way to turn off heteronormative autofills and click a button that says, hey, there are two brides and no grooms?
Under account settings I indicated that there are 2 brides (no groom) but when I fill out the checklist and the timeline, it references a bride & groom. I really do appreciate the representation and options on your site for same-*** couples. Just wanted you to have this feedback on file because I'm sure your Product Managers aren't busy enough ;)
Pretty much everything here is assumed that you're a straight couple. Having an option that lets your filter more into a M+M or F+F to help with showing more results that would be tailored towards the appropriate wedding type.
Also, having options of filtering through vendors that are LGBT friendly would be a big help.
The other thing I would think would be a great option is on the budget planner is the option to add things (food, alcohol, photobooths etc.) I think being able to add Extras would help a lot of people with utilizing this tool better.
