Magnets and Weddings DIY Roundup
Magnets can be incredibly helpful to someone who is planning a wedding! They’re discreet, so they don’t take away from the ambiance of the day, and they’re perfect for crafts and DIYS, which are a staple at any wedding celebration. That’s why, before you walk down the aisle or wait at the end of it, you should read through the following magnets and wedding DIY roundup:
Magnetic Save the Dates
Save the dates and invites can be stressful to approve and expensive to create! Not to mention that most are thrown away once the event has passed. That's why we're sharing a special DIY that you can use and enjoy long after your wedding day — save the date magnets! You’ll essentially just need ¼” x ⅛” disc magnets, glue, Mod Podge, printed pictures, foam board or pre-cut tiles, and pens, stamps, or stickers. You’ll be creating a “Polaroid” style invite by gluing the image onto the foam board, adding the text at the bottom and gluing a magnet onto the back. Read the full tutorial here!

Magnets to Hold Tablecloths Down
Weddings are all about the details, and there is no detail too small. Weather is a pain point for many brides and grooms as well, but with this trick, you can take the wind off your list of concerns. Use two small cube magnets on top of your tablecloth and under the table to hold things in place. Bonus trick: think about keeping your table placements on a large metal sheet, this way, you could put tiny magnets on the backs of clothespins and adhere to the sheet to hold name cards so they won’t blow away!
