This past week I met a nice young bride in Paper Parlour who was looking for “Save-The-Date” cards. I overheard her asking the sales clerk about them but the clerk told her that they didn’t have anything specific for “Save-The-Date”.

This got me thinking about a cute “Save-The-Date” card that I received recently – it was a magnet with a beautiful photograph of the church on it. I put it on my refrigerator and I never forgot the date of the wedding! Anyway, I mentioned this to the bride in the store but I wasn’t sure how to tell her to make the magnet.

Photo Paper Glued to Magnet Stock

That evening I called the bride who sent me the Save-The-Date magnet. She told me that she printed the information on photo paper and then glued it with spray glue to the 8.5×11 magnet sheet. She then cut them all herself with a large paper-cutter and mailed them with a notecard. The picture above is of the Save-The-Date magnet.

Standard Save-The-Date Cards

Save-The-Date cards are a more modern idea and are generally just a small card with the wedding information on it. I have received several creative cards – one that included a photo of the couple, one had a small charm to represent the city where the wedding was to take place, and another was a postcard from the city where the wedding was held.
