More Gender inclusive
The Knot is a great tool--lots of details and having it electronic is very helpful. It is very heterosexual focused. There are wedding website templates with same *** couples, but when you get to other tools such as planning your timeline or day of events, it's all about "bridesmaids" and "groomsmen". I would work to be more aware of gendering people, especially in a wedding setting where everything is very gendered. For example, rather than "bride" or "groom" you could also include "spouse" as an option. Instead of "bridal party" it could be "wedding party".
We definitely hear what you are saying. We hear this from Dad’s on The Bump as well, and we are actively looking at how we can adjust our systems in the future so that gender and role are taken into more consideration in the planning process for weddings and babies. Thanks for your patience while we work on this.
I hope you are still able to find a great amount of applicable information on the site in the meantime.
Enjoy your planning!
I agree with this feedback and was hoping to suggest this idea as well. It would be more inclusive and inviting. As someone reviewing wedding sites for their approach to everything wedding- the heteronormative "bride" and "groom" was off-putting.
