    Yes. Unconventional but practical!

    No. that's strange/tacky, don't do it.

    If you really want to send STD magnets do it separately. I would find it really odd to get an invite and a STD at the same time. It defeats the purpose of said STD.

    I am doing magnets, so I obviously do not think they’re tacky! I am not sending both (cut costs) but I think it would be fine to get a save the date and then a small magnet with the date on to remind 🙂

    Love the magnets idea, but whats the point in sending a Save the date (Sorry I just can’t call it  STD) if you are sending it WITH the invitation.

    I would disagree that you should send the invites super early. A save the date will let them know the location and date and they can look into costs. Especially if you have a website set up with more details. Unless you want people to RSVP really early?

    I am also having a destination wedding and had magnet STDs that I literally just sent out last week. Our wedding isn’t until January 2017, but I decided to send out STDs incredibly early to give everyone a heads up since many of them are recent grads (like myself) that are in the middle of paying off loans and getting started with their careers. But yes, I would find it slightly odd to have a STD in with my invite, but that’s coming from someone who sent out STDs 15 months in advance 😉

    I sent magnet STDs a year in advance and sent the invites about 3 months ahead of time. I would think it was strange to get both together. If you haven’t already purchased, maybe look at an invite magnet To get the same effect.
