Guest Accommodations - Duplicated on Wedding Website
So many of you have already reached out regarding the appearance of duplication of your Guest Accommodations - Thank you for taking the time to let us know your feedback and what you are seeing on your website.
We recently made a change to the Accommodations page on Wedding Websites based on feedback we received from other couples and guests that they were having a hard time locating where to find the hotel accommodations in the scope of the website. Currently, you will see we are testing a few ways to make this more visible on websites for your guests. This does include including Accommodations on their own tab AND in the details tab on your website. Unfortunately, there is not an option to customize this feature to appear under just one tab. If you do not have any need to add hotel accommodations, you can hide this tab under the accommodations section on your wedding website.
We would love to hear your feedback so we can pass this along to our Website Tech team as they look at how this feature is being used by your guests. Ultimately, your feedback will play a big part in how we move forward with this testing and our website design. Feel free to leave your feedback here or email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you - again - for reaching out.
Customer Experience Team
You’ve shared your feedback and we hear you – truly. After conversations with the Product Lead over our wedding website development, we have been assured that this team is working through the possible solutions to adjust and improve the appearance and function of the accommodations/ details tabs on your wedding websites.
The goal is still to create one specific area to manage your guest accommodations while still having some ability to personalize this feature. With this in mind, the Tech team knows that the biggest ask coming from our Couples is that there should not be any duplicate information appearing on the website under multiple tabs.
While we will not be rolling this back to how it was before and we know that many of you still frustrated that your site is going to appear a bit different than when you originally published the site, we do want to be sure any future updates offer a viable solution for our couples while still creating an easy to use experience for your guests.
As soon as we get an expected date of release for future updates, we will post them again here on the forum.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. And thank you – so much – for your constructive feedback. This is a passionate group of members and we are definitely listening and hearing what you have to say.
I look forward to circling back on this again with you soon.
This is a terrible feature. It is confusing and not at all user-friendly. It also makes the details tab extremely cluttered. I want my guests to be able to see everything they need to see without scrolling through several pages. The whole purpose of having separate tabs is so the user experience is simple and does not require scrolling until they find what they need.
This happened back in March and still there is no solution?! You're an IT company, this should be fixed within a week.
This is an incredibly stupid feature. Obviously, just make it customizable so you can choose which tabs are seen and which aren't. It's insane to make it visible under two tabs.
Also wondering when this will be fixed, so annoying. Makes my website look sloppy, very frustrating!!!
Are there any updates to this? It looks like this has been an issue since February 2019 and it's October. Having guest accommodations appear twice is confusing.
Is there an update on this yet? I am sharing the wedding website tonight and find it frustrating that guest accommodations are appearing twice.
Is there an update on this user experience issue yet?
Does anyone know if there's a fix for this yet?
So Happy for you and your husband
Stay in love
Never stay mad at each other

Why is this still not fixed?

The fact that you aren't fixing this duplicate tab "enhancement" is a joke to your users and to this site. You have placed redundant information on **every** single user's website and also did not think to make this an optional/removable feature.
The double display of Hotel Accomodations just clutters up the site and makes it even more difficult to navigate. Please just keep the design straightforward or give us the option to do so. This is hurting more folks than it's helping...
The lack of response to this is unbelievable. Like dozens of others, I've gotten no answers to my emails and you have ignored people here, too. Wish I'd gone elsewhere for wedding planning needs. Is there anything someone could do to get a response from this company? Or do you just lie and pretend like your mistakes don't exist? Disgusting customer service.
I am in awe as to why this has not been fixed yet. It completely ruins our website and makes it look inappropriate. This is an absolute nuisance.
This was mentioned in another thread months ago, but it is still not addressed!
Even if Guest Accommodation is not listed in the Details the drop-down, it is still showing on the actual page. Removing it from the Details drop-down will remove the Guest Accommodation page as well. The Manage Pages does not show Guest Accommodation as a page even if it is showing, so there is no option to remove it there either.
Hundreds of people are still complaining about this on the other thread:
This is still not fixed, contrary to the update of 2/21. The site is still duplicating the accommodation / details. Either that, or Details tab needs to be removed completely

WHY IS GUEST ACCOMODATIONS NOT UNDER THE DETAILS SUBNAV?!?!
THIS SITE DESIGN MAKES US LOOK LIKE IDIOTS!
This is a crazy way to do it. It should either be in a details subnav, or there should be the option to show each details element on its own main nav item.
I'm super unhappy with this duplication. I've spent two hours trying to fix it until I found this thread; I honestly thought I was the one who was incompetent. I'm partly glad that it's not me but I'm really disappointed that this can't be changed. I feel the website really looks silly now and honestly a lot harder for my guests to follow. I'd change to another provider but this website is printed on our invitations now.
Really unhappy with the duplication! It's made it more complicated for guests!
