  1. More complete registries

    I think that if you add a registry manually, guests should be able to see all items in their entirety not just the websites that sponsor the knot. I added restoration hardware today and it just shows up at the bottom like the other ones I have. No one looks at these unless they are tech savvy. the ones that are tech savvy cannot afford to buy us a rug on restoration hardware. I would like for a complete list to be added and new items should be at the top. The logos of the places were we are registered…

    I truly appreciate you sending in this feedback. Right now our partnered retailers do have a contract with The Knot that allows us to show their logo, put their placement above other retailers and link directly to their site items. The manually added registries do not have this connection and yes, it is a bit more daunting for guests to see them as ‘equal’. We continue to work with retailers to ask them to partner with The Knot and we will definitely use this feedback as we continue to offer this to retailers.

    If you want all registries to have equal weight, there is a way to unlink everyone and just add the URLs in the registry page. This does not look as clean overall, as there are no logos, but it does put all registries on equal ground. Let us know if you choose to do this (newtools@theknot.com

  2. Please add keyboard shortcuts when entering guest information

    It is hard to manually enter a lot of guests' information because the interface is very reliant on mouse clicks, when it would be pretty easy to make it more keyboard friendly.

    When entering a new guest, the window should auto focus on the First Name text box so you can start typing immediately, you should be able to fill out/select every option using Tab, arrow keys, and space bar. You should be able to add a new guest (same party or different party) without having to touch the mouse. This would make it a lot easier to keep up…

    We really appreciate you taking time to send in this feedback and suggestion. I have already forwarded this on to our Guest List team for their review. They continue to work on updates and improvements for this tool and hopefully this will make it into our road map in the near future.

    Enjoy the rest of your planning!

  3. Inspiration board

    I used your site to plan my first wedding, and on your old site, there was something that was called an inspiration board or something of the likes. Anyways, what it did was call out all the major elements of the wedding, such as the dress, the bouquet, bridesmaid bouquets, ect. For each category it let you pick one photo to keep there as your ultimate inspiration photo for that element. At the time I found this function EXTREMELY helpful to ensure everything was coordinated, and easily keep track of exactly what I had picked for each piece of my…

  4. RSVP

    I'd like to see another RSVP option for site admins to add choices to the section. For example, if a guest wants beer instead of wine or vice versa, they can choose it in the RSVP and furthermore, it gives the site admin an idea of how much of what to get. Same thing with food. If someone chooses vegetarian over meat, I'd like to see that option.

  5. Make it easier to navigate your Wedding Website creation and editing site

    Make it easier to navigate the editing page by including all of the subsections in the sidebar under "Website Pages".

    Right now if I'm editing the Travel subsection and want to start editing the Accommodations section next I have to click back on "Details" on the sidebar then click on "Accommodations".

    It would be much easier if all of the subsections were just including in the side bar on the left. At the least, the left sidebar should include a collapsable drop-down of all of the sub-sections under each main page so you can quickly jump to editing different sub-sections.

  6. Add a text box for guests to insert "and guest" names when RSVPing

    We would like to have names of guests that were listed "and guest" on the invitation envelope to make creating seating arrangements easier. Could a text box be added to the RSVP box that allows a first and last name to be entered.

    This will make name plates easier :)

  7. Ability to add more than one photo under a section instead of using the photo album in the Photos section

    Please add the functionality to add more than one photo under a section instead of using the photo album under the Photos section. People are less likely to go through your several photo albums on a wedding website, I would rather just add a couple of photos to the applicable section. We should at least be able to sandwich the section's text with photos.

  8. RSVP put the name of the guest on the email

    When a RSVP email is sent it would be great to have the guests first name and last name on the email and that is the name they should use when finding their invitation.
    So basically it is like a mail merge and you can add fields to the emails.
    Even better if the RSVP email being sent out could have user defined fields eg {email} {firstname} and those details are taken from the guest manager information.

  9. Ability to respond to RSVP notes from guests

    When guests RSVP, they also send beautiful notes, but there is no way to respond to those. Please add that feature

    We are so glad you are seeing the notes coming in from your guests. Right now there is not an automatic way to reply, but we do look forward to adding this in the future. Since we assume most couples have a way to contact their guests, you can use the SHARE feature in your website builder to send them an email, but if you do not have their email address then this would not work yet. This is the part we will be working on for a future update.

    Enjoy your planning!

    This is a great idea. We are continuing to work on a seating chart for our guest list manager, but I agree that being able to see the colors and decor would be lovely. I will be sure to pass along your comments to our product designers for them to take into consideration in the future.

  11. Ideas for The Knot LookBook App

    It would be great to add the following categories to The Knot LookBook App:

    -flower bouquets and arrangements, with filters for: what's in season in your area, types of bouquets, by flower type (with the option to select multiple flowers)

    -wedding decor

    -search colour schemes, it would be neat to be able to select a colour scheme and see a flow of images pertaining to that from bridesmaid dresses to decor ect.

  13. A few things that aren't very flexible

    I've designed our website with titles in lowercase, and want to keep it as a very simple look & feel. Here are a few things I've found that you might look at for future development.

    I can change the font for every section except the top bar/menu. This makes it look weird when I have consistency everywhere else.

    All of the section titles can be changed except 'Ceremony and Reception'. There's no option to change it so it looks odd.

    The 'our wedding' & 'after party' titles are lower case but in the RSVP 'Wedding' appears uppercase.

    Order of events…

  14. Budgeter Calculations are Not Correct

    The budgeter calculations are not accurate. The subtotals on a $40,000 budget add up to $41,440. The subtotals on a $50,000 budget add up to $51,800. Once corrected, it is very handy to have your estimates and actual expenditures available at all times.

    Thank you for this feedback. Yes, the budgeter tool is an estimator and it does round to the next nearest number. This means that many times your estimates are going to be a bit higher than the budget. If you have specific feedback on how the tool could be better, please send them to us at newtools@theknot.com – Attn: Keri.

    We will chat soon!

  15. Move sub-sections Around

    Can you please make it so we can move sections around to different website pages (tabs). For example, I would like to move the 'Our Story' and 'Wedding Party' to another website page and only have the 'Ceremony & Reception' and 'Other Events' under website page 'Our Wedding'

    This is a common request and our team is working on making improvements every month that may include this ability some day. We want the free websites to be just what you need and really appreciate your patience and feedback here.

    We trust you have found a way to make the site work for you in the meantime. Enjoy!

  16. Image Sizing & Editing

    Make it useable....not a good experience when you don't provide the dimensions that are needed for an image or allow it to work in common browsers such as IE and Firefox.

  19. Postage stamps

    I decided to use postcard save the dates and got them all ordered - only to realize that USPS only offers one kind of postcard stamp! It might be a good idea to include postage selection and purchasing as a line item on the checklist, around the time that people are ordering the save the dates, so if they opt for custom postage it will be there when things are ready to go in the mail.

  20. power tools in registry

    Power tools or normal tools at home to be listed in the wedding registry tools. How do you not have any hand or power tools in here? You have 10 different categories for the kitchen. You even have "Kitchen Tools". I realize the person reading this isn't to blame, but this is really really sad. I really hope I missed something, and if I did I hope I get a reply about how awful I am for being so critical.
