Save-The-Date Cards vs. Magnets: Which Should You Choose?

You and your honey are ready to tie the knot, and you can’t wait to do it in front of your family members and friends.  You’ve got the date set, and the wedding location booked.  All that’s left to do to get everything in motion is to send out the save-the-date cards…right?

Before you order your save-the-date cards, consider this: you’ll need to find a way to make it easier for your loved ones to remember when your wedding is approaching.  Sure, sending out a card is a great way to get your wedding date on their calendars – but how else can you get your loved ones to keep your wedding in mind as the date approaches?

The answer is simple: opt for save-the-date magnets!

Like the save-the-date cards, these magnets offer a fantastic way for your loved ones to remember your wedding date, with one particular bonus: your family members and friends can put it on their refrigerators where they can see it every day.  That way, you’ll never have to worry that your wedding will slip Great-Aunt Jean’s mind, or your absent-minded friend will forget to RSVP.

So what should you include on your save-the-date magnet?

  • The Date of the Wedding:  The date of your wedding ceremony and reception should be front and center on your save-the-date magnets.  Remember, this isn’t the official wedding invitation – you just want to give your wedding guests the time they need to make travel arrangements.
  • A Link to Your Wedding Site:  These days, more couples are opting to host their own wedding website (www.theknot.com offers couples the opportunity to launch their own website for absolutely free).  You can include a link to your website on the magnet, which is where your guests will find information on hotel accommodations, gift registries, and other traditional wedding information.
  • A Picture of You and Your Honey:  Save-the-date magnets are far less formal than wedding invites, so don’t hesitate to have fun with the design!  Put a picture of you and your honey on the magnet, or create some fun designs that represent your relationship or the theme of your wedding.  No matter which option you pick, the wedding invitation should have special meaning and clearly represent what makes you and your future spouse meant to be.

Save-the-date magnets are convenient, fun, and surprisingly affordable. As long as you include all the right information and send the save-the-date out in time, you can’t go wrong with either a traditional card or a magnet.
