Magnets

Did you grow up in a household where your proudest moments were displayed on the refrigerator? Magnets are a fun way to decorate the front or sides of the fridge, while providing a constant reminder of your upcoming event! Let the people closest to you show you off, with an unforgettable Save The Date magnet. With tons of designs to choose from on platforms such as Shutterfly, you’ll have no problem finding one that fits your vibe. Or, if you’re artistically inclined, these can be a fun DIY project too!

Champagne Mini Bottles

There’s nothing that marks a celebration quite like champagne, and if any occasion was worthy of popping bottles, it’s your engagement! Give your guests a taste of what’s to come with miniature champagne bottles that come accompanied with a custom label, sharing all the details guests need to know. From there, you can direct them to your wedding website for additional information.

Calendar Stickers

Keep it simple, and make it fun (by adding stickers!). Accompany your Save the Date with stickers that guests can use on their calendar. This way, nothing gets lost in the shuffle of old mail and they’ll be reminded of your wedding each time they look in advance; allowing them to plan accordingly.

With sites like Vistaprint or Social Print Studio, you can upload photos directly from Instagram, your phone or PC to create custom stickers. Pair this with a calendar-style save the date, including all the necessary information, and your guests will have everything they need, shared in an unforgettable way!

Luggage Tags

Serving as a reminder to Save the Date, these creative designs also serve as a reminder for guests to get their travel plans in order! Easy to hang and designed to share important information, these Save the Dates can be DIY’ed with some cardstock, twine, a hole punch, a corner punch, eyelets, and editable templates you can find on Pinterest. Or, if you’re looking to upgrade, Etsy has custom leather tags too!
