I love doing things with a slightly different twist for the weddings I am working on. I’m coordinating my friend Lucy’s wedding at Viansa Sonoma in May 2008 She wanted something fun for her “Save The Date” instead of the traditional paper announcement, so we decided to go with a magnet with all the pertinent info on it. Not only is it creative but it’s functional as well. I’ve gone to friends’ houses where they still have the magnets on their fridge from weddings years way in the past.
The company we used was Pioneer Color.They had great pricing, tons of designs to choose from and they can do a custom creation. The final product was crisp and clear and had a nice weight to it. For 120 magnets we spent $200 and it cost $0.41 (the cost of the stamp) to mail them to her guests. Not too bad.
Helpful hint: If you are sending out Save The Date announcements of any kind, you should make sure to mail them to your guests 6-9 months prior to your wedding.
