Save the Date Magnets

Save the Date Magnets

One of the newer musts for all brides is the save the date enclosure. These are typically found in the form of a card, paper insert or a magnet. This last idea is a great little addition- perfect for reminding guests about your upcoming wedding.
 
While save the date cards have been traditionally that: cards, magnets are much more effective! The most common place we put magnets is the refrigerator...a place that in general is not over looked very often. Each time someone walks past or opens the fridge, they will think of your wedding.
 
As a general rule of thumb, you will want to send one magnet per household. When ordering, do not order by the number of guests you are having, but by the number of addresses you will be mailing them to.  Sounds like a no-brainer right, but I know of more than one bride who has had a blonde moment and ordered double the amount of magnets than she needed.
 
For guests who reside close by, you should send save the date magnets 6-12 months in advance. If you are inviting guests who live far away, you may want to allow a longer time of 9-12 months to allow them to book holiday time and make travel arrangements.

Save the date magnets are generally affordable, and there are some great options out there.  I tend to be gravitating towards quirky cartoon styles at the moment, such as this fun design where you can even customize the bride and groom to look like you and future hubby!
