  1. Gendered language in registry survey

    Hello,
    This note is in response to a survey I received via email titled "What were your wedding registry essentials? Tell us!"

    I would like to register my disgust at the hetero-normative language that was used throughout this survey. I have accepted that 99% of the photos on the Knot feature a heterosexual couple (the vast majority of those being white too) and understand that there are fewer LGBT weddings occurring across the country. It has made me feel marginalized in my own wedding planning, but I understood and accepted it.

    What I will not accept is the blatant use…

      Thank you. Not only for taking time out of your day to send this very important note, but for calling this out to us at all. We are definitely trying to make strides on our site so that all couples feel welcome and valued at The Knot. We just have a few areas that are either being overlooked or that haven’t had the full update yet. This is definitely one of them.

      I have already sent your feedback along to our Research and Marketing teams so we can make sure this is quickly on our priority list. I am very sorry you did not feel welcomed by our site when taking this quiz – that you felt we did not value you as a couple and that we did not value this enough to have made this change earlier. Thank you, again, for giving us an opportunity to see this…

    • Ability to match background and invitation colors

      It is so nice to be able to have the option to match your invitations with your theme. But you can only change the color of the background on the invitations, not the website background. It would be perfect to be able to change the colors, and to any color you want so it can match your wedding colors instead of a select few.

      • Export Newlyfund entries

        It would be quite helpful if I could sort, export, or view as a table all the gifts we've received from in our newlywed fund. Currently they are not sorted in any particular way and so we have to check the whole list multiple times to ensure we've sent thank you notes to everyone. Thanks for helping!

          I really appreciate you taking time to send us this feedback. We are continually looking at ways we can make the Newlywed Fund more user friendly and this suggestion is definitely on our list.

          Let us know if you have feedback on other areas- we love hearing from our couples!

        • Budget update

          I've removed quite a few options from my budget as i'm just doing a vow renewal and not all the pomp and circumstance. I really think the budget should update the "estimates" based on what i have left for a clearer picture. I swear it used to do that when i used it before? Just a thought.

          • Subtle moving graphic/compatibility with all common devices

            I saw that other websites or emails have moving images and graphics. Would it be possible for future wedding websites to have moving images compatible from any smartphone or laptop? (i.e a plane flying across the page for a destination website when you first enter the site, simple twinkles for some the New Years weddings. It doesn’t have to be cheesy, just subtle and VERY simple. Not so flashy it gives people a headache or distracting. There are so many wonderful ideas and possibilities. When guests open up the website, it’s something unique that they may not have seen with…

            • Thank You Note Option The Knot App

              The Knot app for iPhone needs to be able to keep track of to whom one has written thank yous. Seems like this can only be done on a desktop, which defeats the purpose of the mobile app!

              • Links for Wedding Venue & Reception

                No matter how many times I attempt to add the link to my venue under "Wedding Details" it will not work in a way that displays nicely (off to the left on the bottom, throwing off whole page). Additionally I see that "Google Maps" is connected to my ceremony & reception locations, but I'd like for the guests to be able to actually click on it to open up "maps" for directions from their locations. I know I've seen this on other wedding websites, so know it's possible.

                • Photos showing as white boxes

                  Currently reported bug on wedding websites: Photo preview squares showing as white boxes instead of photo previews.

                  We are aware that for some accounts the photo albums are coming up and only showing white boxes, rather than a preview of the photo. I am very sorry this is affecting your account. Our Tech team is working on this urgently and we hope to see a solution early this week. We have seen that if you refresh the page/URL a few times it may start showing the pictures as expected. We know this is not ideal, and not all of your…

                  • Guest email update through RSVP section

                    I like that guests can enter their email when RSVP-ing and get reminders. It would be even better if I can see who selected the option for a reminder and also have their email populate in the Guest entry in the Guest List Manager.

                    • Please improve User Interface for Newlywed Fund for mobile users

                      We are loving the Newlywed Fund! The site has been easy to use on desktop devices, but is nearly impossible to use when on a mobile device.
                      I cannot update it from my tablet or phone and we have received feedback from guests that they were unable to give us gifts from mobile devices either. With many people moving away from computers and laptops and toward tablets and phones, please improve the UI to be usable for these users.

                      Otherwise, Love it!

                      • Secure RSVP Not Default Setting

                        I think it is 100% unacceptable that a Secure RSVP (where random, uninvited people can't just type in their information and RSVP to your wedding) isn't the default setting. I discovered this today after sharing a link to my engagement photos on my site and discovering upon my return home at the end of the day that a bunch of new guests- who I hadn't invited, mind you- had RSVPed to my wedding. It took me YouTube videos and Google searches to finally figure out how to turn it off. Absolutely unacceptable that an open RSVP is the DEFAULT setting…

                          Under the Wedding section on the website, it would be nice to be able to upload more than one more photo (1 for ceremony, 1 for reception). And an option for a photo of a map. Is this possible?

                            Having been in a dozen of weddings myself do you ever do best places for bridesmaid dresses? I have had good and really bad experiences and ultimately it would be helpful if there was a list of top places. Survey my friends and I just had a horrible experience ordering offline jjhouse.

                            • Budgeter should recalculate when line items are archived

                              "I am skipping a lot of traditional wedding expenses, so when I delete items off the list in the Budgeter, I wish it would update the recommended amounts under the remaining budget items. For example, I am not having a wedding planner, and if I delete this item or enter "$0.00", I wish the tool would automatically allocate the recommended amount for a planner to other items on the list."

                              • Why can't I add my own custom to-do items to the checklist?

                                It would be very helpful to be able to type in my own unique tasks to add to the checklist rather than choosing from your predetermined items.

                                • Add sort, a search bar, and higher wedding dress price ranges.

                                  Hello,

                                  I really like this website, but there are some key functional components that it is lacking that would make it much more user friendly.

                                  1. Adding the ability to Sort results by price, alphabetically, newest/oldest, etc.
                                  This feature is desperately needed in multiple areas of this website for example, the wedding dress section. While the filters are great, they are not the same as the sorting function.

                                  2. Search Bar.
                                  Every website needs a search bar! With so much on this website, a search bar is crucial!

                                  3. Higher Wedding Dress Price Ranges
                                  Just putting $10,000+ is extremely vague!…

                                  • RSVP

                                    I would like to see The Knot implement an automatic cut off option for the RSVP. Once the date has been set that option would work wonders. It will also encourage the guests to confirm attendance within the allotted time. Another reason, most if not all weddings require a head count for the services being requested for that day. A disclaimer should also be added as well.

                                    • Alphabetical sorting by first or last name

                                      This used to be by first name, and since I have numbered and sent out my invitations you have switched the sort to by last name. I am sure that for most people this is a more natural sort, but the change was made without any notice and will make double checking the responses from everyone much harder for me.

                                      • International Information

                                        You provide a few articles on having a destination wedding but I would love if you included more. Branch out and include vendors and info for the actually planning of a destination wedding. Obviously you can't include every vendor in every city but maybe the bigger ones like Paris, Fiji, Australia, ect. Also let the Newlywed Fund include international banks and currency!

                                        • I would love to be able to export my bridal shower guest list separate from my wedding guest list.

                                          My maid of honor is throwing my bridal shower for women only and she wants it to be a surprise so she's mailing themed bridal shower invitations to my guests but instead of sending her a exported list of 59 guests I have to send her a list of my total guest count for my wedding.
