    I definitely don’t think the magnet would be worth the cost and shipping expense. I always put Save-The-Date Cards on the fridge using a regular magnet anyways.

    xitsperfection :  LOL. I’m not in wedding mode anymore since we’ve been married 2 years, but I’m an RN and was like girl no one wants to critique your STD…

    Anyway, I like matte finish better, and magnets wouldn’t be worth the extra shipping cost. Very classing though, good work!

    hi bee!  i just sent out my STD’s.  i opted for no magnet because like other bee’s said, they are a lot more pricey and people can use a regular magnet.  love the picture idea though!  i went with cardstock and they turned out great.  i like it better than the glossy paper, personally.

    either way they look great though, nice job!!

    xitsperfection :  I didn’t spend much time on the bee for a while after we got married but now we are TTC, so I’ve been on the boards againf or a few months. 

    Also, congrats on your engagement/wedding!

    Vote no magnet for environmental reasons.

    I would maybe reconsider the “rsvp early” part. The older guests might be confused by that and it seems a little bossy rather than a suggestion. If it’s clear on your website that people can RSVP early there, they can learn that on the website rather than on the save-the-date. I’d just write “visit our website at..”
