Even though we’re all staying at home a little more than usual these days, you still want to give people as much of a heads-up as possible with something as big as your wedding date. Sending out save the dates lets guests know there's a mega party coming up, and the design you choose lets them know what kind of shindig you're throwing.
Here are 21 save-the-date magnet designs that will help you ensure your wedding date is one guests won't double-book.
Just as the name suggests, this Fun Photostrip save-the-date magnet takes its inspiration from the strips of photos you get at carnival booths and amusement parks. Pick three of your favorite snapshots, and don't be shy — candid snaps will be just as captivating as professional engagement shots.

You may not have the time (or the proximity to a park) needed to go and carve you and your intended's names in a tree trunk, but that's okay.

11. Love Arrows
How can you be sure that your save-the-date magnet will score the attention it deserves on the face of a guest’s crowded fridge? Love Arrows is here to solve that problem.

Sure, the crisscrossed arrows and tiny heart are adorable, but the straightforward typography, solid background, and overall clean aesthetic stands out because of its simplicity rather than in spite of it
12. Stacked Charm
Every save-the-date magnet needs to center at least two things: your names and your wedding date. Both elements share the spotlight with our Stacked Charm design, but it's the way they're featured that's special: An extra-large font for your names, then a unique calendar strip that uses a little heart and highlight to indicate the big day
13. Simply Striking
Proving nature-themed save the dates can be modern too, Simply Striking combines a lush bed of ferns with a geometric frame for an eye-catching result. The use of contrasting fonts for first and last names adds another layer of appeal that will help keep guests' eyes on your reminder
14. Field Of Dreams
Talk about a classic! Embrace your traditional side with this Field Of Dreams design, a soft, almost vintage-influenced save the date that offers a timeless take on romance. Grass instead of flowers, a single punchy color, and carefully chosen typography come together for a genius layout that's layered without being busy
Get to the point without sacrificing an ounce of style thanks to Stacked Sophisticate. Upload your favorite photo to use as the background, then the date lines up right down the middle of the magnet with the day, month, and year each on different lines. No muss, no fuss — just key info communicated in an elegant way
16. Date + Place
If you like Stacked Sophisticate but want to add just a little more info, you'll love our Date + Place design.

Now that your guests will know the when and the where, the only thing left is for them to excitedly await the big day!
17. Soft And Sweet
The cherry blossoms arching out from the side of our Soft And Sweet save-the-date magnet are so pretty you can almost smell their delicate floral aroma. It's romance personified, which is perfect for couples who prefer sweet over striking and elegant over edgy. It's great for a spring wedding, too, or “I dos” that are taking place in an outdoor setting like a botanical garden
18. Royal Emblem
A wedding set to rival William and Kate's deserves a save-the-date magnet to match.
