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.
50 Calendar Designs
One particular magnet design that is proving rather popular is the calendar magnet. You’ll find the designs below all feature a calendar design for each of the save the date magnets. You can also download a free template on the Journey Junkies page if you want to DIY-it. If you’re not a member of the Journey Junkies club, sign-up here, it’s free. Then, find the supplies I use for each of my save the date magnets at the bottom of the page and create your own save the date magnets.
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.
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.
Everyone loves a good palm tree at the beach and this design highlights that love.
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.
Finally, this last beach-themed save the date magnet is watercolor. The blues bring to mind the ocean and its beautiful colors.
Bling & Glam
The next category is for all of you that love metallic. Silver, gold, rose gold, and glitter are a popular trend this coming year and they make for lovely save the date magnets.
First for the bling and glam is this rose gold design. The color is a lovely shade of pink without being too over the top.
If you’re not into pink, but love the metallic look try gold metallic instead.
Do you have glitter in your veins? Do you sparkle when you walk? If so, then this falling glitter design is perfect for you. If you love all things sparkly, then find these save the date magnets below.
Nothing says wedding like diamonds, so I couldn’t create metallic save the date magnets without one dripping in diamonds like below.
To keep going with the diamond theme, I had to make one in diamond shape. I love, love, love, making fun-shaped designs and I couldn’t resist a diamond design.
So maybe you don’t love gold but you love metallic. Then this silver design is your way in.
Last up for the bling and glam is this design made with real shimmer paper. The designs above all included printed metallic but this one has actual metallic paper used.
Boho & Hippie
This next category is a new one for me and therefore super fun to design. If you’re a flower child at heart, then these “Hippie” save the date magnets are for you.
I couldn’t possibly start off the boho and hippie designs without including the hippie van. Share your big news with this fun design.
If you’re more into a subtle theme, then this next design may be for you. An easy way to incorporate a theme without going over the top is with the colors, such as this design below.
Flowers are always a good idea for wedding save the date magnets and with just a bit of tweaking you can make any flowers have a boho feel.
If you’re wanting to go full on with this theme, then this design is definitely for you. Share news about your “wedfest” with these save the date magnets.
I used watercolor above for a beach design but it works well for the boho/hippie as well. The colors remind me of the setting sun on a long road trip.
Country & Barn
I’m no stranger to this next category and it’s never hard for me to come up with ideas for the country and barn wedding. Though maybe not as popular as it was a few years ago, in Texas, it’s always popular.
The first design for the country wedding has a burlap background. There’s just something about burlap and barns that go perfectly together.
Next up is a fun mason-jar-shaped design perfect for the fun, country themed wedding.
If you’re getting married in a barn, then save the date magnets with a wooden background is the perfect way to announce your day.
I don’t know why, but for some reason I just feel that sunflowers and barns together so well. Therefore, I’ve created these save the date magnets below with sunflower accents.
These next two designs are similar but with different wording. I love a good play on words and it’s too fun to use “the hunt is over” for rustic save the dates.
Another fun play on words for this theme is “the buck stops here”. It also works perfectly for the barn wedding.
Finally, for the last design, use your photo to display a country feel in your save the date magnets. Make a plan to have your photographer do engagement photos in front of a barn or wear your fun cowboy boots for the day.
Destination & Travel
The destination and travel theme is one I personally adore. I didn’t have a destination wedding but I had always thought I would. Therefore, since it wasn’t in the cards for me, I decided to incorporate a little bit of travel into my wedding theme. That means, I’m no stranger to the travel-themed designs.
First up is a fun airplane-shaped save the date magnet.
If you’re not into the airplane shape but you do want a unique shape for your save the dates, then this luggage tag design may be perfect for you.
Another fun shape for a destination wedding is a globe. It’s great, because it’s simple to cut out a basic circle.
If you’re a fan of all things vintage, then this next one is for you. This design features a vintage map background perfect for the destination wedding.
Leave nothing to the imagination with this next design. Let your guests know they’ll need to pack their bags to be a part of your wedding.
This next design features bold “airmail” colors perfect for the blue and red wedding.
Finally, keep the design simple with these airplane graphics.
Garden & Outdoors
I love a good outdoor wedding, so this next category is especially fun for me. If you’re getting married outside or just love floras then discover these gardens designs below.
First up, this design may seem a little off for a garden theme, but the basic black and white floras are simple and beautiful. Even if you’re getting married with a garden theme, you can still do black and white if that’s your fancy.
I love how these greenery accents look for a simple, classic, garden theme for this design.
Nothing says garden or outdoors quite like large floras and these save the date magnets are perfect for matching your wedding bouquet.
Another idea for a garden wedding is to do it at night and if so, you’ll need lights. This garden lights design was created with the evening wedding in mind.
While I’ve used rose gold before in the metallic section it also works here. It just looks so lovely with the greenery accents.
This next design is for all my southern friends. The south is full of cacti and they make for adorable save the dates perfect for the outdoor wedding as well.
I know that watercolor has been used before but it’s great for this theme as well. The blue colors remind me of the afternoon sky.
Keep it simple with this next category. These designs were made for simple, classic wedding.
First up, you can’t have minimalist or classic without black and white.
Keep it fun with this next design. Let your friends and family know it’s time to party.
You can still have bold colors with a minimalist design. Use a solid background with clean type and you can’t go wrong.
A super easy way to create a clean, classic look is to simply put your names large on the magnet with a simple cursive font.
If you’re going for a minimalist feel, then keep it minimal with the wording as well. Just let your friends and family know that you’re getting married with a simple “we do.”
Finally, you can still add a photo to a minimalist design. Keep the photo simple and make it the entire magnet like the save the date below.
Royal Fairytale & Princess
This last theme takes us back to all those fairytale weddings we may or may not have dreamed about as kids. If you’re a prince or princess at heart then these are for you.
An easy way to incorporate the royal feel is with antique or ornate accents.
Nothing says royal quite like royal blue, right? this design focuses on color to create the royal theme.
Here ye, here ye, announce your wedding with a scroll shaped design and wording designed for the royalist of affairs.
This next design is definitely for the royal or princess wedding. There’s no better way to show your elegance than with a carriage design on your save the date magnets.
If you’re looking for a royal theme but don’t want to use imagery, then these next two are for you. Use “once upon a time” wording to announce your wedding day.
Finally, this last design really sums up all weddings and is the perfect way to announce your royal-themed wedding. Or, it’s really perfect for any wedding.
