  1. LGBT Friendly Vendors - Add icon and filter for Vendor Search

    I am not asking for more inclusive same-*** language like the other planned suggestion, I am asking for your vendor pages to have an icon, like a rainbow heart or flag, in the Details section where the prices are mentioned showing that the vendor is LGBT friendly. There should also be a LGBTQA+ friendly filter for any vendor search that automatically brings up vendors that are LGBT friendly.

    Thank you.

    • I wish there was an interactive tab

      It would be nice to have an interactive tab on the website that guests can have fun with. For example, it would be nice to set up a poll for guests to pick where the couple should go for their honeymoon. It would keep guests involved in the planning process along with helping out the bride and groom by getting suggestions and opinions from guests. You could also set up a quiz that guests can take to see how much they know about the couple; like where they first met and how long they were dating before they got engaged,…

          Hi and thanks for writing in!

          I just want to confirm where you would like the ability to replace “and”…in your wedding website page names?

          Thanks so much!

            HI there!

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

            Thanks for writing in!

          • 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 :)

            • [Fashion] PLEASE add a "wedding dress color" search option!

              Like many other brides, I won't be wearing a white gown for my wedding (and I therefore won't be using The Knot to search for wedding gowns, as there seems to be no way to find dresses that aren't white). I'd be thrilled to find this option in the future!

              • Hair Styles for African American Women

                Hello,

                I think it would be a great idea to post wedding hair styles for African American brides who have natural hair. So many of us wear our hair in its natural state and we would love to have ideas on how we can style our hair on our special day. I have looked through the hairstyles that you have an none of them work for African American women who have natural hair...it sort of makes us feel left out or unimportant as it relates to your target audience.

                  Thanks for bringing this topic to us. We will be sure our editorial staff sees this request so as they look at the styles and beauty treatments moving forward we can keep this in mind. I will say that some of our models do come from the vendors and manufacturers, but they know our brand should talk to all men and all women and keeping up with each community is key.

                  Thank you again – I hope that we will start seeing more models in their natural hair soon.

                  XOXO,
                  Keri

                • 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

                  • Removing Sub Menus

                    Is there a way to disable sub-menus? I want guests to just click the menu buttons on the header and not have the sub-menu drop down on hover.

                    • Filter

                      Your filter recommendations do not seem to be working. When I filter for location or price it gives me more options not less and some offered options do not fit the filter criteria. I.E I filter for affordable pricing on a venue and there are many options for expensive and moderate on there. It's confusing and not helpful.

                      • Wedding Website

                        I have seen a couple of different times about the photo uploader for the wedding website and I am having the same issue with photos not uploading. I see that this has been a known issue since May of this year and is still not fixed. For those of us brides who have our weddings coming up next year and need to get our websites changed over, this is very inconvenient and is adding extra stress to our wedding planning. What is going on? So far I am not impressed with the website updates.

                          Yes, this is still in process… change is hard and takes time sometimes, but we haven’t forgotten about this. Photos are being worked on as a current tech project and we hope to start seeing a few improvements in the next 2-4 weeks. We try to provide a great product for our free websites, but sometimes these things just get pushed back so we can tackle bigger issues. But it doesn’t mean it is less important in the long run.

                          Thanks for your continued patience.

                          • I'd like the option to block venues from my search list that I've ruled-out

                            I would like having the option to basically cross off vendors I have looked into and have decided are not right for me. It's overwhelming to come back later and have to scroll through the same vendors every time.

                            • [Filters] I want to see more silhouette choices when I filter dress results.

                              I definitely think there should be more drop down choices for the dress search. Although the basics are covered, I would like to see more choices for silhouette, and maybe an active response as you plug in the choices rather than clicking apply each time.

                                Hi and thank you so much for your feedback on The Knot Beta dress and filtering experience!

                                We are constantly making improvements to The Knot Beta and plan to include multi-select filters and possibly the active response feature you are referring to in the dress section in the future.

                                We will take your great feedback into consideration. Please keep an eye out for updates.

                                Thanks again!

                              • Registry Improvements

                                1. It's really convoluted as to how to change info that shows up on the wedding website about your registry. I am referring specifically to the Registry Note that appears on the Wedding Website. It would be nice to be able to access that directly from the Registry tab.

                                2. Something needs to be done about Registry's not partnered with The Knot. I have had several guests tell me they had no idea I was even registered at IKEA because the link is TINY and barely noticeable when next to the logos of the other two places. If nothing else,…

                                • [Name Order] Allow putting my partner's name first

                                  I (the groom) created our account on The Knot, so, naturally, when you asked for "Your name," I put *my* name. However, it is traditional for the bride's name to appear first. Lacking this feature, I had to go through and redo a bunch of stuff on your site because I filled in the requested information without realizing that you would put my name first (like on our web site, with the wedding party, in the URL of the web site, etc.).

                                      This is a great suggestion and we will be sure to pass it along to our team for review. In the meantime are you able to use * to indicate your different choices? Send us an email at help@theknot.com if you still need someone to look at this with you.

                                    • More stuff for men

                                      Hello! It would be helpful if more of the items on the checklist or more of the articles were directed towards men. I get a bit overwhelmed looking at all of the things that it appears I have to do, and it may be easier to involve men in the planning if there were more articles/activities that were either for men or generally androgynous. Thanks!

                                        This is great feedback. I have let our team that works on the Checklist know about your comments and we hope to see some additional categories added in later this year that might fit this need!

                                      • I need a place to consolidate all of my notes. I was hoping that I could save notes for categories you already have, e.g. cake, music, etc

                                        Make the checklist more customizable with space for notes within each category...
                                        So I can consolidate all of my notes into one place.
                                        Wouldn't you like The Knot to be that place?????

                                        • 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.
