First things first, congratulations to all the newly engaged couples out there! After you host your engagement party and the exciting news of being engaged begins to spread, the chaos of planning a wedding starts to set in. Not to worry! We have everything you will need to plan your own beautiful and personalized DIY wedding. After you choose your wedding date and create your guest list, you will need to send out Save the Date cards. Because you won’t want your guests forgetting the big day, we decided to design Save the Date magnets that they can stick right onto their refrigerators as a daily reminder of the momentous occasion.
Start by downloading and installing the free fonts Majesti and Transatlantic Cruise onto your computer. You will not be able to edit the text without them! Everything in the template is editable except for the “Save the Date” header and the “invitation to follow” footer. The file includes 4 cards per sheet, with a trendy teal watercolor background. We also added a PDF with a white background just in case teal isn’t your color! 😉 If you want to reduce the size of the Save the Date magnets, you can always resize the PDF.
If you are worried that it will be expensive to print these magnets, fear not! We simply bought some Avery brand 8.5 x 11″ magnet paper that we found on Amazon (see Shop this Project below) and loaded it into our regular inkjet PIXMA MG7720 Canon printer! After you finish printing, trim the magnets using a paper cutter to be precise. The trimmed magnets fit into an A2 sized envelope, which you can also conveniently find on Amazon.
Save the Date magnets are just the beginning. Looking for more wedding planning inspiration? Browse our entire wedding section full of paper goods and DIY decoration ideas!

Hi I’m trying to make my save the date cards and came across this one and loved it especially since it was so easy to use but just wondering if there is a way to remove the color from the background since that’s not the colors for my wedding? TIA
Hi! I have been meaning to add a PDF with a white background, thanks for the reminder! It’s available now 🙂
I spent the money to download the majesti font, but I am still having problems with the fonts actually being correct on the page. The number for the date is out of whack and off the screen, and the year and month do not line up, it seems that they are not the same font. Any suggestions? I really need to get this done for my daughter’s wedding. Does anyone monitor this page? I’m frustrated, I love Lia’s stuff, but paying more than I expected and then getting NO results is even more frustrating. I thought this would be a cinch, as I am not stupid, but this is just a little above me I suppose. Help would be so appreciated. TIA!
I am sorry you are having trouble. Once you installed the font, restart your programs. Since this is more of a computer issue, I will have to guess at trouble shooting. Maybe even double check in your Work program that the font is showing up. If this does not work, send me an email at lia at lia griffith dot com and I will personally help you get this right. ~ Lia
I clicked on the link for the Majesti font and there is a charge, is that something new? It’s a pay what you want, but you still have to pay. I prefer NOT to have to pay additional to my subscription. Thanks. 🙂
We do not sell the fonts, this is from a site that specializes in fonts. We do our best to use free fonts but sometimes a design needs something nicer. You can choose to pay or not pay for this font as the sight suggests.
I am planning an engagement party and would love to use this design for the invitation. Are you planning to offer an invitation template that could be used? Or, is there a way that I could adapt this format? Thanks!
We are planning to have a whole set based on this design.
Our nephew sent Save the Date magnet and I loved it! Best idea ever, I’ll use this if my kids ever get engaged.
It is a clever idea. . . totally agree! 😉
