Magnets? Yes. Magnet Save the Dates are a popular choice these days. There are many options including photo Save the Date magnets with a customized picture, calendar magnets, beach magnets, mini magnets, etc. Compared with cards they can be less expensive and allow your friends and family to remember the special day by attaching your custom Save the Date photo magnets on their refrigerator or wherever else the magnet will stick. This will ensure they are free to attend your special date which is the entire point of sending out Save the Dates in the first place.
If you want Save the Date magnets there are a plethora of choices online. We have reviewed our top picks below. For something truly unique check out the custom caricature Save the Date magnets from Beau-Coup online.
Magnolia Press is definitely one of my favorite wedding card designers. Two of her top selling Save the Date magnets are Formal Details which is on the left and Romantic Tab which is on the right. In fact they are often two of the best selling magnets on Wedding Paper Divas in general. It’s tough to go wrong with such classic choices for a wedding card. I really like the smoke coloring of romantic tab and the silver date banner that drops down. And you can pick up to 4 different wedding photos to feature.
The Romantic Tab card also comes in nutmeg and marigold in case you don’t like the smoke color. Another Save the Date magnet we really like is the one below called Stylish Signpost. It comes in bright green or a light blue color called coast.
It has a very simple design with a solid strip and your names above it. Another great classic Save the Date from Magnolia Press.
Sarah and Carolyn are the two childhood friends behind Baumbirdy. They are both professional art directors with a keen eye for cleverly made and designed wedding invitations and other paper goods. You can learn more about them and their designs at the Baumbirdy Blog.
Baumbirdy has some great designs. Two of my favorite Baumbirdy Save the Date magnets are listed below.
The first Save the Date magnet above is called Clean Style. Just pick a great photo from your engagement photos and this magnet puts the focus on you and your soon to be groom. The lettering is still elegant and simple in its detail with the white handwriting cursive style.
The magnet above is called Antique Airmail. It is a Save the Date that takes the look of a vintage airmail postcard. In a cute design it takes the postmark stamp and turns that into the date of your wedding. And you can include a few photos that are made to look like stamps in the postcard. It’s a wonderful design. I heart Baumbirdy!They are just starting out so hopefully they will add new Save the Date designs soon.
Petite Alma Save the Dates are so great I had to feature her Save the Date magnets again. Kirby Alma is the designer behind Petite Alma. She has a wonderful flair for simple style that is combined with a Parisian influence she honed while working in Paris.
Two of my favorites are listed below. The first Save the Date magnet on the left is called Beach Flowers and it features a beautiful aqua blue orchid flower. This is perfect for a tropical or beach themed wedding. I really like the aqua blue cursive of your and your fiance’s names.
The card on the right is called Stylish Script and is just has in simple script “Save the Date” in black calligraphy writing. If you want a simple magnet to just announce your wedding nuptials this is a good choice.
The photo Save the Date magnet on the upper right is called sophisticated hand. You just choose a favorite engagement photo and it looks fabulous with the white script and banner with your wedding information. If you prefer a non photo Save the Date the option on the right is called Cupids Mark. It has a cute drawing of a heart with an arrow through it. So adorable!
We don’t always do this but these Save the Date magnets are just so fabulous we had to feature them. They offer a contrast in choices. One magnet is bold and one is more understated.
The Save the Date magnet on the left is called Heartfelt Handbill by Magnolia Press and it comes in a rich red background color with a beautiful cursive “save the date” and a pretty heart below it. It’s a great choice for a Save the Date magnet because it will stand out on the refrigerator or wherever your wedding guests decide to stick it. Remember that for these magnets the corners are rounded which is a nice touch.
The magnet on the right is much more subtle but still on of our favorites. It is designed by Le Papier Boutique.We love the line that says “She said yes and the date is set so we’d love for you to be our guest”. The quote makes Save the Date in this case. We suggest pairing it with a black and white photo for best effect. Notice the small details like the word “love” and the small hear highlighted in pink. It adds a nice understated pop to this design.
Magnolia Press has some of the most popular Save the Date designs and they are all exclusively available at Wedding Paper Divas. They just came out with a number of new Save the Date magnets and I just had to feature them. Four of my favorite magnets are shown below.
The first Save the Date on the upper left is called Chic Label and it comes in a light turquoise and also grey color. It features a very large personalized wedding or engagement photo and a strip at the bottom with wonderful dotted borders. It highlights the photo and accentuates it which is what I prefer for most Save the Dates.
On the upper right is another great design called Fall Breeze that features a little calendar with the date of your wedding circled. And it has a little note area with the wedding details. You can choose up to four different photos so this can be perfect if you have a lot of great engagement photos to choose from.
On the bottom left is a Save the Date magnet design called Splendid Scrolls. It comes in some bold colors including Raspberry, Orange, Sapphire, and Chartreuse. It is again a one photo Save the Date design with a stripe bottom. This stripe is definitely pretty elaborate with a square embroidered on the left that has the wedding date. This is one of the new designs where you can choose square corners or rounded corner Save the Date magnets. I personally prefer the look of rounded corners. But keep in mind it will cost you more money in some cases more than $1.00 per Save the Date extra.
On the bottom right is a Save the Date magnet without pictures called Larger Type. The focus is your wedding date at the top in a grey stripe area with beautiful serif lettering font. Your name and your fiance’s name are set in a beautiful calligraphy cursive font. Sometimes simple can be the best choice in a Save the Date. It also comes in two with the choice of rounded or square corners.
Petite Alma is one of the leading featured designers for Wedding Paper Divas. You can learn more about the founder Kirby Woodson on the Wedding Paper Divas site. Before launching Petite Alma, Kirby worked at BabyGap and also has been featured in Vogue, InStyle, and People magazine.
Her designs blend her urban New York simple style with a bit of Parisian flair that she got while working at BonPoint in Paris. You can see our review of her Save the Date cards but I also wanted to share some of her new Save the Date magnet designs.
Petite Alma has a number of new Wedding Save the Date magnets. Two of my favorites are listed below. The first Save the Date on the left is called Pure Bliss and it features a bold cabernet red color and a simple photo Save the Dates design. I really like the cursive lettering and block fonts.
The card on the right is called Weeping Willow and features a weeping willow tree where the leaves are hearts. In the center of the Save the Date card is the tree trunk that has the initials of the couple and a little heart as if they were carved into the tree. This is just so clever and it brings back memories for me of carving my own initials into a tree when I was young. In addition to a blue colored Save the Date it also comes in yellow and green.
Jenny Romanski has some beautiful new Save the Date magnets that I just had to feature. She is an award winning Boston based designer that is also the founder and creative force behind Hello Little One which is a line of stationery suites. You can follow her on twitter at Jenny’s Twitter to learn more and keep up with her daily going ons. Two of my favorite Save the Date magnets she creates are below:
Springtime Flowers Magnet
This is a simply striking Save the Date magnet by Jenny. IT features yellow and white flowers amidst a grey steel background. I like the clean block fonts and you can choose a personalized photo on the right for the perfect photo Save the Date magnet to send to friends and family. It’s perfect for a spring wedding.
Vivid Verve Magnet
The Vivid Verve Save the Date magnet by Jenny Romanski has the most adorable pastel colored block letters that spell out “Save the Date”. It’s playful and yet simple. You can pick up to four photos to showcase which I really like. The Save the Dates magnets can stick anywhere like your fridge or oven door. The + plus sign between your names is a nice added touch that complements the playful nature of the card.
We have featured Jenny Romanski’s Save the Dates cards previously in case you like her stuff.
Magnolia Press is one of the top Save the Date card designers for Wedding Paper Divas. And they have now released a new line of Save the Date magnets that takes some of the top designs from their save the Date cards and turns them into cards that can stick on your fridge. There are a lot of wonderful Magnolia Press Save the Date magnets designs but here are some of my favorites below.
Restored Calendar Magnet
This is a stunningly beautiful Save the Date magnet. It’s classic and modern with wonderful calligraphy and colors. Just pick a vertical photo and insert to get the best Save the Date magnet EVER! It’s so cute to see the actual wedding date circled. And of course it’s a magnet so your friends and family can stick it to the refrigerator so they don’t forget about your upcoming wedding.
Picture This Magnet
Do you have so many great engagement photo shots that you can’t decide on just one picture for your Save the Date magnet? Well we have the solution for you with this beautiful magnet that features 6, yes count them SIX different engagement pictures. It still manages to squeeze in some nice design elements with the simple capital block letters and the red font for your names is a nice touch that works well for this Save the Date.
Photo Fortunes Magnet
If you have one absolutely perfect engagement photo for your Save the Date magnet then this is an excellent choice. It wraps your photo in a simple colored red border. Your nuptials info is included in white stripes at the top and bottom. The contrast is clean and quite striking.

I am SO excited by this news. Wedding Paper Divas now carries new formats for Save the Dates. In addition to the fantastic Save the Date cards they finally are selling magnet Save the Dates and Postcard Save the Dates!
I’ve been requesting this from the company for years. I think there was a concern that magnets did not fit the high quality expected of Wedding Paper Divas. It’s not an easy process to create a Save the Date magnet that looks clean and not “made at home” if you know what I mean. So they took some time to really do it right!
And I must say they have done a really good job with their Save the Date magnets and Save the Date postcards collections.
They were really smart in that they took some of the best selling Save the Date card designs and used the same or similar designs for magnet Save the Dates. I’ve ordered these magnets and postcards and can attest that the quality is as high as anywhere else I have seen. Wedding Paper Divas definitely did their homework and it’s a welcome addition that gives future brides a solid choice in the magnet and Postcard area.
So the day has finally come. Wedding Paper Divas, my favorite place to buy Save the Date cards has finally launched a line of Save the Date magnets. Everything that Tiny Prints the parent company of Wedding Paper Divas does is of the highest quality. So of course they have not disappointed with their new line of Save the Dates magnets.
These are the best quality Save the Date magnets on the market in my opinion. Many of the designs are from some of the top Save the Date card designers including Good on Paper, Petite Alma, and Jill Smith Designs. They just launched so as of now they only have a somewhat limited selection of 21 cards. But I’ve been told they will be adding more designs very shortly. Here are a some of my favorite Save the Date magnets from their collection. Can I just say Wow!
The pricing for most of the Wedding Paper Divas magnets is similar. Prices for magnets are usually around $2.00 to $3.00 per magnet for quantities over 10. However, if you purchase 100 or more cards the prices drop considerably to only about $1.00 to $1.50 per magnet. Please note that envelopes are included in the pricing. However, you can purchase additional envelopes if you think you may make mistakes in labeling your cards and need extra.
Rexcraft Weddings has been in business for over 100 years. In addition to Save the Date cards they also offer Save the Date magnets. They don’t have a huge selection but they have some really nice wedding magnet designs. Here are two designs that I really like.
The pricing for most of the Rexcraft Save the Date magnets is about $90-$130 for 100 magnets. They have square, rectangular, and even heart shaped Save the Date magnets. The designs are simple yet elegant.
