I wouldn’t bother with magnets unless you find a good deal. We did picture cards through shutterfly (I had a $20 gift certificate that came in the bag my dress was in from David’s Bridal) and I got 100 of them for around $12 including shipping. I have seen them on the fridge at multiple close family and friends houses so if they want to display it, they will.

@lovelyduckie: I’m going to say no, because a magnet reminding me of someone else’s wedding that might not be to my tastes is something I’d most likely throw away. I’m a big clutterer- but I like it to be MY clutter, if you see what I’m saying. It seems like something that is a lot of extra work and expense that people most likely won’t really appreciate. I’m trying to think about this as, say, Great Uncle Saul rather than a young bride to be. So while part of me thinks ‘what a cute idea!’ The larger part says ‘that money could be better soent on something else for your guests’.

@lovelyduckie: Ya, I ordered my envelopes before the liners so that made it easier to figure out the size needed. Envelopes from paperpresentation.com Color Fog size A6

It wouldnt matter. It would go up on my fridge either way!

@lovelyduckie: I voted that I didn’t care either. Most likely it would end up on the fridge, but I have plenty of other magnets so the STD itself doesn’t need to be one.

I voted yes. For our save the dates we did regular stationary save the dates and then ordered small business card sized magnets that we attached at the bottom. They’re quite simple. It wasn’t very expensive to order or to ship. We put one up on our fridge and even I suprise myself every once in awhile 🙂

personally I think magnets are cheesy and definitely overdone 🙂

I don’t care either way, but that’s because it’s going to go on my fridge no matter what! So I didn’t vote in your poll. I ALMOST voted for the last one and then realized it was the opposite of what I meant!

I bought save the date magnets from Vista Print, and I think they turned out great! Everyone said it was easier to remember our wedding date, since it was right there on their fridge. I feel like cards are easily lost.

I always prefer a magnet, because I always seem to lose them otherwise! lol

I don’t think it’s necessary, but an additional magnet on a fridge is always handy! FH and I did postcards, but in retrospect I probably would’ve chosen a magnet instead! People tend not to throw magnets away, but cards almost always end up in the trash 🙁

My save-the-dates were great and people loved them. They had the right heft to them that you would expect from a magnet (but not overly heavy). I didn’t pay any extra postage for them either (they are 3″x2″, I believe, with a card to attach to them so that they’re not floating around in the envelope). I ordered them from http://www.magnetstreet.com.
