@JessicaJupiter:  Help me understand why anyone, other than your immediate family,  would want a magnet with your wedding information on it on their fridge or anywhere else? I think a lot of guests just leave these things at the reception.

If you feel you must have a favor, just use the money you would spend on magnets to buy better candy.

@julies1949:  +1.  I bet 90% of guests will leave these on the table.

I personally wouldn’t want anything associated with someone else’s wedding hanging around my house forever. I would say do something non-personal, or just go with something edible that everyone would love

Save your money, no one would want those magnets.

I agree with everyone else about the wedding info on the magnet. If you’re set on a magnet, pick out a pretty picture, or a nice quote about love.

Agree with PPs.  I’m not even a big fan of them for save the dates, and then they are more useful. 

I would cut the magnet and just go with the box of sweets.  Most likely, if you do the magnets, you will be left with a lot of magnets.

@JessicaJupiter:  While the magnet is pretty, I would save the money and put it into the sweets and skip the magnet completely.

The only family member I could see liking this would be grandparents, but even then.  If you were my sister/cousin/neice etc I still wouldn’t want a magnet of your wedding date.

Edible favors will always win out over customized knick-knacks, unfortunately. I would just get your parents or in-laws something nice and then do little favors for everyone else. I liked little mason jars of popcorn kernels that say ‘thanks for popping by’. Should be cheap.

I appreciate how much effort you’re putting into this, but honestly, I wouldn’t take a compact.  Honestly, I don’t intend for this to sound rude, but I imagine they aren’t the best quality and I already have one that is a good quality, so I just don’t need one.  I imagine most women already have compacts, as well.

I also agree that the magnets would almost all be left behind.

@JessicaJupiter:  A compact mirror that costs less than $1 is going to fall apart within the first few times it is used. To me it’s just sad for any bride on a budget to waste the money.

Why not just provide the edible favor? You can still make a tag that thanks your guests for attending the wedding and supporting the marriage.
