Magnet cards are a great idea to give your guests a fun way of saving the date! This will also double as a cute reminder for your guests to keep in mind as the date draws closer. You can choose to make handcarved magnets out of wood, or look for one that’s predesigned on popular websites like Etsy. “Puzzle Piece” magnets are also another popular & trending way to commemorate your day ,with each lovers name on seperate pieces that fit together perfectly when assembled on a fridge or cabinet!
