What's your idea for The Knot?

Remove SSN from Newlywed Fund

My fiance and I were so excited to start a cash fund on our wedding website with TheKnot. However, after realizing that we had to literally give ALL of our personal information down to SSN and DOB, we felt that this was very intrusive and unnecessary. We feel that there is no need to provide an SSN if you have all bank routing and other contact information and this information should be optional to provide. Unfortunately, since it is not, we will not be using the newlywed fund via theknot.com and will look elsewhere. Very disappointed.
