Thinking about creating your very own Shutterfly Save the Date magnet for your wedding?
Although Zack and I have already married, we didn’t have a traditional wedding. We only invited immediate family. I was happy being married so quickly because it took away a LOT of the stress, but I missed out on celebrating with all my family and friends.
As time ticked on after the move, I nudged Zack that we should probably pick out a venue soon. Then more time went by. Then more. Then I finally found a venue in Milwaukee, WI that didn’t have an unsettling price tag for the venue itself. Zack agreed and we booked our date!

I hastily sent out Save the Dates with a pre-made design from Shutterfly instead of designing something on my own. I wanted to give friends and family at least nine months notice! I got them in the mail before Christmas so they doubled as our Christmas cards for the season.
The quality of these magnets were good. They weren’t too heavy or too flimsy. We were able to put one stamp on the envelope for mailing. Shutterfly always has great special offers. The original order price for 70 of these magnets with envelopes was $174.30. I received free shipping and a savings of almost $90. The total price I paid was only $94.12!
I recommend visiting the Shutterfly website directly for the most up-to-date information on creating personalized magnets or any other products they offer.
