  1. Ability to change the font and spacing in the email when sharing the website

    Hi there. It would be nice to be able to change the font and spacing in the email subject box when sharing the website via email.

    • How or we should be able to have access to share our countdown of our wedding date with Facebook

      I want to be able to share my countdown with my Facebook friends. Is there any way we can have that option? To just join the knot with Facebook and maybe have a live countdown of days till we say I do?

      • Budgeter-

        I really wish there was a way to export this to a spread sheet. Or even a way to print itemized amounts. I'm a very visual/hands on person. I need that piece of paper!! :]

        • Add picture sharing to the knot

          I think that it would be a great idea to add picture sharing to the knot. This will allow the wedding attendees to share picture directly to the wedding website giving the bride and groom a chance to see the pictures immediately.

          • Add an option to make your own free wedding site

            Currently all the wedding "themes" are boring. They're all floral / black and white or just too classic.

            Add an option to let us upload our own pictures and use our own scrolling wallpaper as well as picture widgets / GIFs

              We definitely keep looking at adding new themes. We will have almost 200 choices by the end of February for you to choose from in a variety of colors and options. That being said, we are not in the place yet to allow you to have your own photo or design as the background on your site. The Developers are working toward this in the future, but until that is something we can offer we do hope you find a good variety in what is offered.

              XOXO,
              Keri

            • 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.

                • Just found out about being able to gather addresses via social media! So awesome! BUT... You cannot add those people via mobile device.

                  I'd love to be able to add guests from my collected addresses via mobile device. Being able to do it from my phone on the site would be great, and the app would be even better!

                  • Assume both people are actively involved in the planning process, and phrase things on the website accordingly.

                    The messages that appear at the top of the to-do list are only addressed to one person. Both of us are actively using the site, but every message is addressed to the one of us who happened to set up the account. It is old fashioned and presumptuous to address in-site commentary to only one of us. (This is also related to the problem that your site only allows for one person's email address to be tied to the account.)

                      We are so glad you are asking this question / providing this feedback. Our Team that works with the Ultimate Checklist and Budgeter are making great strides forward this year and part of where we are going is going to cover this very issue. We recently were able to pass forward a personalization of the list that allows couples to tell us who is getting married, so we can make sure we list a gown and tux, or two gowns or two tuxs when needed. We also are working on making sure our destination wedding couples have a few extra lines on their list as the travel piece is much more prominent when traveling away from home for your event. All this to say – we are working on being able to first, allow couples to share a login so we can recognize both people helping with the planning, and…

                      • Wedding Party - "Shared" Members

                        The website now allows to design custom titles, however, every wedding party member must part of either side of the wedding, but not both. (Ours is a gay wedding, so it has to be either me or my partner, but the same would be for any wedding). Sometimes a wedding party member is a "shared" responsibility or part of both sides of the wedding. The website forces every wedding party member (including, for example, the Officiant) to one side or other of the couple. Our Officiant is the first friend we met mutually, so it should go to "both sides"…

                          Your site is wonderful and you all have done a great job. I understand why you'd remove websites after so many months or years have passed since the wedding -- otherwise you'd run into storage issues. This is especially true with all the pictures you allow us to upload. But do you have any plan for 10, even 40 years in the future? Your websites are crucial history, showing how each of us decides to present ourselves to our extended family and friends. At a bare minimum, the story, and venue dates and details could be an immensely useful starting…

                          • I would like to see options for people who are not getting married at registered venues

                            There aren't many options for people who are getting married in an alternative way. For example I can't check off the venue because we are getting married in our backyard. So your checklist to me is basically useless because I can't fully see that I've completed portions of the wedding planning because we are doing an alternative way without using vendors. I suggest adding options that allow you to just fill in your venue, photographer, etc. instead of having to choose from a list in order to check it off .

                            • Get rid of required subtitle for the Our Story section, since it already has "Our Story" as the header

                              If I am only writing a couple sentences or even one paragraph under the "Our Story" section then I do not want to be required to include a subtitle. Otherwise on the website it looks awkward with a superfluous subtitle as I'm only describing one story. "Our Story" followed by "Our Story" again? It would look much better if it just said "Our Story" in the sub-section header font followed by the text.

                                It would be amazing if the export list was able to download with guests being organized alphabetically by households. Additionally, if a guest has entered their contact information through the site, it does not include those guests in the exported list. This doesn't help when addressing invites for the wedding or any events associated with the wedding.
                                Additionally, it would be helpful when a guest enters their contact information for the system to not duplicate the guest, but to have name recognition so that when a guest already exists on the list their contact information is populated to the pre-existing…

                                • Expand locations in 'Wedding Details' section

                                  I was originally going to have a wedding in the US, but changed my mind and decided on a destination wedding. It would be nice if locations outside of the US could be searchable in the 'wedding details' section in account settings. Because it is not, under the registry section, it is still reading as if my wedding will be in Baltimore, MD. This could be confusing to some guests.

                                  • How can I remove the RSVP option in the body of the website for each individual event but keep the RSVP button at the top of the website?

                                    I have a 2-day wedding where not every guest is invited to both events, which I have been able to program in the secure RSVP but the option to RSVP on the main site is still there and I cannot figure out how to remove that while still keeping the top button capability to RSVP.

                                        Thank you for reaching out. Most of our site has been updated to be https compliant. If you find a page that is not, feel free to send me an example and I will ask our SEO team to look into this.

                                      • allow more than one email address per guest

                                        I have many guests for whom I have more than one email address. I don't know which one is the best for them, the one they check and the one that is old and neglected. I want to be able to send emails to all of their addresses and NOT have them come up as duplicate guests with the same name. Then if they search for themselves by name, the guest list manager comes back and says "there is more than one John Smith. Please contact the bride and groom to RSVP". Or something to that effect. Not cool. This…

                                        • Please expand the the Newly Fund banking to international countries (Canada).

                                          I absolutely love the idea of the newly fund. However, I cannot use this feature due to the fact my bank is tied to Canada as I reside here.

                                          Is there any way you can partner with Canadian banks and/or paypal to make this happen?

                                          Thank you so much!
