Save the Date Magnets: Things to Know

Before we launched our collection of save the date magnets, they were hands-down the most popular request we got from customers. It seems like all of you have already figured out that this format offers the perfect marriage of style and function, so here’s everything else you need to know about them:

  • Dimensions: At 3.38″ x 4.88″ with rounded corners, the magnets are a bit smaller than our traditional save the date sizes, but they are the right shape and size to make an impact on your friends’ refrigerators (without taking over the entire space!).
  • Personalization: You can add photos and customize your colors, fonts and text all from weddingpaperdivas.com just like you would any of our other products.
  • Envelopes: Save the date magnets come with high quality white envelopes to match the design in size and shape completely free of charge.
  • Timeline: Just like standard save the date cards, you should send save the date magnets at least six months before your wedding date.

Engagement Photo Props

I love the rustic charm of this elegant photo shoot from Photorange Photography. Kylee and Austin used simple props to transform the shoot from cute and sweet to chic and charming as well.

I absolutely adore the chalkboard “Love” sign and think it would be the perfect motif for a multi-photo save the date card like this one from Wedding Paper Divas:

Creative Save the Date Ideas

Some of my friends have expressed to me that they find the pressure of creating the perfect save the date cards can be too much early on in the wedding planning.  When this comes up, I always suggest that they use their engagement photo shoot as an opportunity to work with their photographer to come up with some unique shots that can be the centerpiece of the save the date.  After all, this makes the session a lot more fun and it gives you the opportunity to test out your photographer’s creativity before the big day.

If you’re looking for some inspiration for a fun save the date, here are some great photos that we found on the web and added into some of our favorite save the date designs.

Picture Perfect Save the Date Cards

Save the date cards are your first chance to let the world know that you are getting married. They offer a sneak peek of the soon-to-be newlyweds’ style, set the tone for your entire wedding celebration and provide friends and family with important information regarding your big day. They should be joyous, stylish and seemingly effortless. One of the best ways to achieve this blend of sophistication and fun is with a photo save the date card.

To make sure that you pick the picture perfect save the date card to land that all-important spot in the middle of the refrigerator, follow these simple steps:

1. Use a plain background. Backgrounds that are too busy tend to lose focus. Instead of choosing a photo set in front of hundreds of people at a concert, for instance, take one on an empty beach or in front of a grassy lawn.

2. Maximize your lighting. Use your flash even when taking pictures outdoors to minimize shadows and give both of you a healthy glow.

3. Dress the part. Wear coordinating, but not necessarily matching, colors. Often black and white come out the best, as in the examples below. Also, if you plan to make your photo black and white, wear a shade that contrasts with your hair–blondes really shine against brown or black, while brunettes look amazing in white.

4. Get a genuine smile. Some of the most spectacular photo cards come from intimate moments captured on film. For the best Save the Date photo, start talking to your soon-to-be spouse during the shoot, sharing inside jokes and fond memories so you can capture a genuine moment to share with friends and relatives.
