From first thing in the morning to last thing at night, people use their fridges. It makes sense then to send save the date magnets that your guests can pop on the fridge so they’re regularly reminded of your wedding date – and it’s a totally unusual form of wedding stationery.

We’ve picked out some of our favourite magnetic save the dates, but if you’re looking for other ideas, make sure you check out our list of unique save the date ideas.

Reflect the time of year your wedding is taking place by choosing a seasonal inspired magnet. This one is perfect for autumn weddings, but consider snowflakes for a winter wedding, bright flowers for summer and daffodils for spring.

We love this cute train ticket inspired magnet – after all, planning a wedding is a journey you embark on together, and marriage is the destination (too cheesy?).

This wooden ticket magnet is a unique choice – ideal for film themed weddings. The fact it’s made from wood makes it hardwearing too – it’s likely to stay on the fridge for a long time.

Custom Save the Date Magnets

Remind everyone who’s wedding it is they’re waiting for by personalising your magnets with pictures of your face! Cheerz can do a range of magnets to suit your needs, either as small squares or in strips. It’s great if you are both big fans of Instagram as you can use pictures straight from there.


Simple Save the Date Magnets

If you don’t fancy the idea of your faces being on the fridge or you don’t want to give too much away about your wedding theme, choose a magnet with a simple design that doesn’t reveal your wedding plans. We’ve listed some lovely ones to inspire you below.


This black and white magnet is stylish, and the chalkboard style is very fashionable but it doesn’t give anything away!

Keep it to the point by choosing a magnet that just features key words. You can pick from a variety of colours so it could match your colour scheme if you wanted, or you can give nothing away with a sleek black and white design.
