Save the Date Magnets

One wedding trend that seems to never go out of style no matter how many years pass is the save the date magnets. The great thing about them is people will automatically put it them on the fridge as soon as they get them. I love making them as well, it’s one of my favorite wedding-related items to create. Each year about this time, I design a few new ones and this year is no different. I’m sharing 50 save the date magnets today. You can order them on Etsy as a template, as magnets, or switch to cards.

Wedding Themes

I love a good wedding theme, and I’ve created each of these magnet save the dates below with different themes in mind. From tropical to rustic, glam to hippie, princess to minimalist, you’ll find unique designs below.


Beach & Tropical

Right now I’m cozied-up with a blanket on my lap so it’s hard to think about the beach and tropics, but nevertheless that’s the first theme I’m sharing.


1. Photo Background

The first beach-themed design is one placed on an actual photo of the ocean. This photo was taken on a beach in Australia, so if you’re looking for a true-beach feel, then this is for you.

There’s just something about stripes and the beach that go hand-in-hand. I don’t know what it is but I know it just words for a beach design.

You can’t see sand-writing without thinking about the beach so why not have a custom design made with your names in the sand.
