Save the Date Wedding Magnets: Top 10 Trends for 2017
- Scented magnets – this is DIY job— add just a touch of your favorite fragrance inside the mailing envelope, however, if you follow this trend, make sure your wedding magnet is laminated.
- Magnets with more personality – a storyboard of the relationship – works best with larger magnets.
- Off-theme magnets – ditch your wedding colors and theme for an out-of-the-box design (no baby pictures please!).
- YouTube Save the Date video URL link printed on the magnet.
- Oh God, not another square shaped save the date magnet!!! Trend Headline—think shapes, shapes, shapes… there are many vendors that carry a wide range of magnet shapes – such as this website.
- No engagement photo on the Save the Date, however follow-up after the wedding with Thank You magnets that have ceremony pictures. Yeah, yeah—perhaps a bit of magnet over-kill, but it’s cute!
- Adding contact phone number to the magnet. Yeap—sounds like a no-brainer!
- Embellishing the magnets with beads, ribbon, glitter, etc. – a personal touch! This is NOT to say make your own STD using one of those DIY kits. I personally feel this is your wedding, your big-day, your time to spend, spend, spend (trust me, it’s probably your last free-for-all) so don’t DIY—if you gotta DIY, well…
- Signed or initialed magnets, by the bride and groom of course. Ask your magnet vendor to reserve an area on the magnet for this. Be sure to use a permanent felt-tip marker—you can get these in a wide range of standard and metallic colors.
- Printing the words “Save the Date” in a foreign text, such as guardar la fecha (Spanish), sauver le jour (French), etc.
