I did a normal card, included our wedding website and everything. Many of the people we sent the Save the Date to contacted us that they were very excited, but I'd say probably only a ⅓ of our guests went online. So my thoughts are a normal card should be fine! 😊 Use the funds elsewhere.
My new fridge doesnt hold up magnets sadly because its stainless steel So I would be sad to get a magnet that I cant use. I decided to go with regular card vs magnet because Its cheaper & after a while ppl will eventually toss it whether its card or magnet.
Our fridge doesn’t let us have magnets we put everything up on a cork board in our office. I agree with Monica that if I got a magnet and no where to put it I would be bummed magnets are really thick so they don’t tack or tape up very well. I would say do a card if people want to magnet to their fridge they would do it with another magnet.
We did normal cards and a lot of people hung them on their fridges any way lol.
But i feel like the save the date, most people end up throwing away after some time and why spend more money for it to be just thrown in the trash. Some people may keep it but whenever i got a STD i would keep it until we got the actual invitation and then i would toss it.
I considered a magnet until I started receiving save the dates for my friend's weddings. Once I'd put the date in my Google calendar (I'm an organization freak), I immediately put the save the date in my "card" box (I KNOW I'm such a freak).
If you like the magnet, go for it! Honestly, it's pretty cute. But if you want to save some money, go with just the paper.
