Everything you need to know about save the date magnet cards

Save the dates often take pride of place on guests’ fridge doors for three main reasons:

  • They’re super pretty
  • They’re a practical visual aid to remind the guests when the wedding is
  • There’s sentimental value in remembering that two friends are getting married

 

Even once they’ve served the second purpose and the wedding is done and dusted, wedding invitations, save the dates and thank you cards have a habit of setting up permanent camp on the fridge - especially for those of us who are a little lax about changing up what’s there (whoops) - thanks to the fact that they are both beautiful and sentimental. A save the date magnet is a brilliant way of acknowledging that a save the date does its best work when it’s on the fridge, and making it easy for your friends and family to put it there neatly.

 

What you need to consider with save the date wedding magnets:

If you’re thinking of sending out save the date magnets, there are a few things you should bear in mind as you make your decision. 

 

Postage 

Your save the date magnet postage cost might be slightly higher than the cost to post a standard wedding card because it is calculated by weight and magnet backing is heavier than standard cardstock. Check with your local mail service for accurate postage rates before creating your stationery budget.

Size 

What save the date magnet size is a good fit for you? That all depends on how much information you want to include on the magnet, the cost of postage, and of course, your own aesthetic tastes. Magnets should always be small enough to avoid dominating the entire fridge but large enough to be easily read. Postcard dimensions (roughly A6) make a good size, but you can go smaller if you are willing to use less words or after a cute effect. What do you want to say and how do you want to say it? Consider the different space requirements for these two different pieces of text: 

 

N & D
26.10.18
 
Or 
 
Save the date!
Nathan Moore and Diana Lorent
Are getting married
Saturday October twenty-sixth
Two thousand and eighteen

 

These both convey the same information but their different ways take up different amounts of space. Of course, if a picture or illustration accompanies the first piece of text, it could actually end up taking more space. Know what appeals to you and match the size accordingly, but remember that the size of the magnet will affect weight, and thus postage costs, as well as the appearance of the magnet on the fridge. 

 

Style

Everyone has a different idea of the perfect save the date magnet. Whether it’s a save the date magnets DIY project or a stunning gold foil number to wow your guests, select a design that works with the rest of your wedding. 

Whatever design style appeals to you, think about how it will translate to a magnet on the fridge. Some styles make the leap better than others. For example, vintage save the date magnets can be tricky to pull off since paper and texture is so deeply connected with the vintage style as a whole. Is it possible? Absolutely! But factor in the tactile aspects when you pick the design on-screen. 

Some popular styles to choose from are:

  • Rustic save the date magnets
  • Fall save the date magnets
  • Sunflower save the date magnets
  • Vintage save the date magnets
  • Save the date wooden magnets
  • Save the date heart magnets
  • Minimalist save the date magnets
  • Watercolour save the date magnets
  • Geometric save the date magnets

 

Destination wedding save the date magnets

Whether it’s beach save the date magnets or save the date magnets for a destination wedding located in the Italian countryside, destination save the date magnets should ideally give a sense of the place you’re jetting off to, or have a passport/boarding pass theme. Save the date magnets beach theme can be as literal as a wave motif or as subtle as gold foiling on baby blue cardstock. Not all destination weddings call for beach wedding save the date magnets; consider just some of the different types of destination weddings you could have:

  • Mountains
  • Bali
  • Snow
  • Lake
  • French luberon region (lavender fields)
  • Hills of Tuscany
  • Country cottage
  • Prairie ranch
  • Forest
  • Outback
  • Safari (African game reserve)

 

Type of Backing

Most good quality stationery companies will offer full magnet backing for their magnets, but occasionally a sketchy online site offers very cheap magnet save the dates that seem too good to be true. How do they do it? Often, the save the date has simply been printed on paper and a small magnet attached to the back with glue. A lot of the time these magnets are tiny, not very magnetic, and not very well stuck to the paper. Know what type of backing you’re getting before you pay for save the date magnets to avoid disappointment.
