  1. [General] The Knot should be more conducive to same-sex weddings.

    I am in a lesbian relationship and getting married in May. I have been using your checklist, budgeter, and other parts of your website, and for the most part it is very helpful. However, one complaint I have is that I have to modify everything to remove the "groom" aspect and restructure it for two brides. It seems like this would be a fairly simple fix of having an alternative checklist for same-*** couples, probably one for men and one for women. I know The Knot tries to be inclusive but this is a pretty big oversight in terms of…

        HI there!

        Where would you like the ability to use a lowercase title – somewhere on your wedding website?

        Thanks for writing in!

      • Moving / Duplicating / Dragging Pre-made Sub-Sections to a Different Page during Wedding Website Creation

        I would like to move the "Things to Do" section with all of it's functionality to a new Wedding Website page I made, "Learn more about the venue," since I don't think it really belongs under "Details" and it is making my "Details" page insanely long, because all of our accommodation suggestions are on that page too.

        Along the same lines, this would allow users to be able to duplicate the Things to Do page in order to create a Places to Eat page with the same functionality.

        I believe this change was suggested before and was incorrectly marked as…

          I really appreciate you checking on this idea. Yes, we do have the ability to move the sections within each sub-section, but moving the different types of sections to the different tabs is still something our Product team is working on. They know this is something that would help a lot of our members and we are eager to get this free website creator just the way it should be. It just takes time and I really appreciate you bringing them back to the front.

          I have sent a note to our Product team to find out when they anticipate this being a live feature and if it is within the next few months, I will keep you posted.

          XOXO,
          Keri

        • Same Gender Marriage

          In addition to what others have said and voted with regards to offering same gender marriages customization, the language and ideas received in emails should reflect the same or be more specific to the users' profile.

          • Editing font (add underline functionality) within text boxes for descriptions

            For wedding website editing/creation, please add the ability to change the font and font size of the text within the text boxes for descriptions. From what I can tell you can only make text bold or italicized and change the alignment. Why isn't underline an option?

            I'm not requesting to change the font of headers, sub-headers, overall theme of the website, etc. When you have the text box of a description open it only allows you to bold or italicize your text, so why aren't there more options here like underlining certain points, modifying the font and font size, creating…

            • Additional Theme Customizations

              Several aspects of the website theme could be more customizable, such as font capitalization (instead of all caps), edit size/type of "and" between names (personally I'd prefer a fancy ampersand), edit size/type of countdown (the default is so tiny), and the option for social media icons on the home page (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc).

                I really appreciate this feedback. It helps our team push forward the items that are more important to our members. We are always making updates and I also hope to see a few of your suggestions in our future updates. You can adjust the font and size of fonts in the Change Theme Settings section of your website dashboard already. I hope this helps a little until a fully flexible site is developed in the future.

              • Alphabetical sorting

                And before we start, I know there are at least 2 other tickets mentioning this, but since there no change (one ticket from August 2014), I assume you guys totally neglect this part.

                The guest list manager is unusable as it can't sort (I'm not even gonna start on the performance of this, the manager is so slow), filter people out, etc. How am I supposed to maintain a list of 90+ people without any form of filter or sorting? I'll give you an example:

                I added a few people but found out my amount of party guest is correct,…

                  Hi and thanks so much for writing in! We 100% review the feedback on this forum. The Product teams here are considering all of the user feedback we’ve received. Unfortunately, some changes are slower to be developed than others.

                  We will be making improvements to the Guest List Manager soon and the improvements will address the sorting issues you are referencing.

                  There is a dropdown at the top of the Guest List called “All of Our Wedding Guests” that allows sorting by Invitations, RSVPs, and Gifts & Thank you Notes that can be very helpful in the mean time.

                  Thanks so much for sending in your thoughtful feedback!

                  • Customizing the Notes section of RSVPs

                    I'd love to be able to customize the categories for how guests RSVP, like changing "Notes" to something more relevant ("If you're bringing kids, let us know here!" type things).

                    • [Budgeter] I have ideas for the future Budgeter.

                      I think the new look of the site is great. It feels more organized and the design is cleaner and easier to understand. This makes for a much better user experience. I would just like to comment on some functionality when you do update the Budgeter tool. It would be great if once you put in an "actual" amount, it would re-calculate and recommend how to re-organize the budget. For example, the Budgeter is recommending spending $500 on my wedding band. However, I know my wedding band is going to cost at least $1000. It would be great if I…

                        It would be great if you could create some templates or "themes" that allow you to use a portrait photo instead of ONLY landscape. I can't even create a website or use my engagement photo bc you only have the option of using landscape photos. Very disappointing! Please fix this right away!

                            This is a great suggestion. Our team is looking at the search filters this year to give them some refreshed options and I will be sure to send this along so they are aware it is an extra filter that would be useful.

                              We hope to be able to tell you this is coming soon – and soon we will tell you this very thing. Right now one of our amazing product design teams is working on a way we can open the memberships to be collaborative and you could share two logins for one account. We know that although you can share the same login right now that is not always ideal.

                              Hello! I love your website/Instagram. It genuinely bothers me that you don't show more LGBTQ marriages, especially trans people. I'm a ******** woman. I want to see more inspiration for my own wedding where a woman is marrying a woman. Or a wedding where someone that might not be "passing" for the gender they identify with is getting married. We can't all have the money for full transitional therapy like Caitlyn Jenner. I also would love to see more handicapped weddings. I think it would mean a lot to a lot of people. Thanks, Davinica

                                Hi and thank you so much for your idea!

                              • [Guest List Manager] Zip Codes don't export with guest address information.

                                I thought it was wonderful that suggested addresses popped up when entering my guests into the Guest List Manager. But it wasn't so wonderful to export the list and discover there were no zip codes included. So now I have to go back and enter those again. It really makes the address finder feature useless.

                                  Hi and thanks so much for letting us know about this issue. We are looking into it and will get back to you when we have an update.

                                  You should absolutely be able to export the zip codes associated with each guest address!

                                  Thanks for your patience!

                                  Please add back the Guest List Manager summary feature. Being able to view how many bride vs groom parties were there, number of invitations would need to be sent (parties rather than individuals), etc. was very helpful. As of right now, I'd have to go down my wedding guest list and manually count the unique addresses when trying to determine how many invitations, stamps, etc need to be ordered.

                                    We truly appreciate all the feedback we have been getting on the new Guest List Manager. We know that the old manager had a few more features and we are continuing to work on improving the GLM and the RSVP features on our new site builder. Your feedback is being considered and we truly hope you see some improvements in the next few weeks/months to come. If you have a specific question that we can help you with now, please email our team at help@theknot.com. We are happy to look at your specific account and see if we can help at all.

                                    Thanks everyone – for your patience and understanding.

                                  • [Favorites] I'd like to be able to organize favorites into specific boards.

                                    At this time on all Favorites are added to one board. The ability to create specific boards and add Favorites is a feature is coming soon.

                                      The Charity Program is a wonderful idea. I would love to be able to have my guests donate to the Alzheimer's Association as members of both our families are currently living with it and others have died from it. As millions of Americans are affected by Alzheimer's, I know it might be a charity near and dear to others and greatly benefit from being added to your list

                                        What a wonderful cause indeed! We are reviewing our charity registries this year and hope that by summer we will have a much larger list available for you to choose from. Right now our limited list comes to us from the JustGive.org program and they continue to be a great partner with The Knot.

                                        I would love it if when you hit for your wedding website to not show up in google search it would actually work. I think better privacy settings would greatly be appreciated.

                                          Thanks for your feedback. We continue to work with Google, as the main search source, to see how this process can be faster. Right now they still tell us it takes 7-28 days for items to be removed once populated on their sites. I am glad you took time to send this over as it does help us in our quest to get this done as fast as possible for our members.

                                          Enjoy your planning.

                                          Over all I love what the Knot has done for wedding planning. I worked for the Men's Wearhouse for 11 years and now am planning my own wedding. However it is disappointing when i go into my check list and see it tell me to preserve my dress. I understand that Gay Marriages are newer to many in the industry but lets be realistic. This did no happen last week. I see where some of the site has been made generic Like your party... your partners party... but if you are going to offer advise is should be tailored to…

                                            You are definitely right here. This has not just happened overnight and while The Knot has made many strides to address love from all couples, we still have a long way to go. The personalized experience based on your account settings is something we would all like to see put in place overnight. But alas, this is just taking time. We continue to listen to our members and add features they are requesting, and this is definitely on the list of things to come. I am not sure how far out it will be, but we are listening and we definitely want to make this a tool every couple can fall in love with along the line.

                                            I did send this feedback to our Product Team for their review and consideration. I really appreciate you taking the time to send the note. It will continue to push us in the…
