I'm trying to think of something creative for save the dates that aren't too expensive. I've tried looking at pencils or magnets but it seems that companies have figured out people use them for weddings and charge far more than they're worth! What did you use for your save the dates?
I didn't use save the dates, but I did get my artwork printed onto badges for a buisness idea and I got them with Stationery Jack his prices work out very reasonable and he also does pens, rulers, coasters, pocket mirrors and all types of merch. Might be worth getting some more quotes?
havn't bothered...will just send invites early x

I got my stamp from hobby craft, it was only about £6. We stamped that onto old style luggage tags and used a gem over the date that we’re getting married x

You can get the magnets from wish or Ali express etc. You have to wait for shipping but its a lot cheaper. We've just got ours and they're good quality x

We aren't doing Save the Dates. As soon as we decided on the date it went out on the "Mother/Mother-In-Law" broadcast system, a.k.a they just phoned everyone and told them!
We add our save the dates for 13p per one by buying card, ribbon and gems at the range and doing it all ourself
I bought brown craft luggage tags , bought some stickers from eBay with save the date, our names and the date , then stamped the location on the back. Stuck a little decoration on and voila. They looked really good and cost me about £12.
I didn't bother a waste of money tbh we just told people the date and sent the invites out x
I'm making my own magnets, I bought clear magents off ebay, I looked around and about 90 for £30 (was 30 for £10) then got some coloured paper in our colour scheme then some little stamps from hobbie craft, I won't need to use 90 magnets but all of it will be about £40 to make them all x
Didn’t bother either just told ppl what day to save myself
Ours were from eBay they are magnets costing £1.80 each. X

Vista print business cards with a cute Amazon charm xx
I have no suggestions for Save the dates but on FB I found invites printed on tea towels and loved the sample I received Very unique
I used a website called canvas to design my save the dates and ordered them on snapfish as photos. It’s cost me £5 including postage for 60, I just need to but envelopes!
Use Canva app, design your own and just get them printed out. We made like 80ish and it only cost about 30 pounds, on nice paper too
Jjshouse is amazing for things like this
How about business cards?? Vistaprint have 50% off at the moment...you could design your own ??
We did ‘pencil us in’ save the dates which came as luggage tags with pencils tied to the top, worked out about £30 for 70 and we added magnets to the back. They’re from eBay.
We made ours in Photoshop and made a personalized wax stamp to seal the envelope, was a beautiful touch, I make keyrings now and many people have asked for them as save the date tokens, cool idea really I also make them for most other things too
We designed ours on the computer and then went to Staples and had them printed out onto card. About £20-30 for 60 (I think! Was 6 years ago!)
My husband is a surgeon and I’m a nurse that’s why the characters and I thought it was a bit different! Xx
I made my save the dates and then bought 2 rolls of magnetic strip from Hobby Craft and stuck the magnets on my self! Everyone loved them, and they were cheap (I did get the professionally printed but only cost £25)
I just did save the date events on Facebook, one for daytime guests and one for evening. It was good to keep updates on aswell! And free as anything lol! x
, a photo of where we got engaged through snapfish and converted it into a save the date. printed in matt not glossy so it didn't look like a photo. cost £20 for 50
Honestly i went into card factory, and the had a pack of nice ones for 99p and that was that!
We made our own, we're having a Disney theme so just bought some black card and ivory paper and found pictures and fonts online, probably cost no more than £15 to make 80.
Stamp from hobby craft!
We made ours. Bought a personalised stamp and ink pad. Put onto some little pieces of fancy card. Stuck some little pearls and gems on. Then bought a roll of magnet that had sticky backing and made them into magnets
Cute, tiny, personalised cards. They came with envelopes so then we just needed to buy stamps and write the addresses on! Roughly £15 for 70 plus the stamp cost on top
Places like the card factory sell reasonably nice ones in packs of 10 for like £1 but I just messaged people and then sent the invites out once the venue had been paid for x
I'm not doing save the date just invites, no point sending the information twice. However if you want something different you could send a key ring...get empty ones off Amazon/Ebay/stationary shops. Insert basic info and they will be able to carry the details constant...including in the day of the wedding as it will be on their keys 👍
Vista print business cards, costs like 10 quid for a few hundred and does exactly what you need 😀
A piece of paper.
Honestly, it’s cute having it as a pencil - people will at least use that - but I doubt most will keep a magnet. Only your closest would - parents and grandparents. Maybe aunts n uncles.
I just did a little card. Which was part of a complete pack from Aldi 🙂 StD, invites, RSVPs, envelopes all there. And they had one for table numbers and place names too which I got 🙂
Magnets from lalalab with our faces on them c
I didn't save the date at all. I spent an age trying to work out how to send an invite without making people commit. So I gave up on save the dates and sent invites only with RSVP within a given time frame. An acceptable one.
I made my own save the dates, invites and programmes. That way I could keep the theme the same across them and keep the costs down a bit
Vistaprint business cards and we popped them in Christmas cards to save on postage People popped them on fridges with other magnets, or pinned to noticeboards. To be honest, it's not super important to do a hard copy save the date these days what with social media and all
We did beer mats/coasters
I got mine from vista print 60 and paid £20 as used a discount code. Got fridge magnets and personalised them online.

I got mine on eBay lovely wee fridge magnets and they weren’t that expensive xx
