He asked you to marry him and now you are throwing an engagement party to announce the wonderful news to your family and friends. To celebrate this exciting occasion you want to give your guests a small favor in appreciation for their participation.
Most likely, your closest family members and friends will be invited to your engagement party. While you have everyone in the same room you can also announce your wedding date with personalized save the date magnets.
Save the Date magnets are a great engagement party favor for couples who have already decided on their wedding date. They serve a dual purpose of presenting your guests a keepsake to remember this special occasion and to remind them of your upcoming wedding day when they place their magnet favor on their refrigerator or on a filing cabinet in their office.
If your engagement party is a formal affair, you might place a small thank you card containing a fun magnet reminder at each table place setting. To build the suspense, ask your guests not to open their thank you cards until a designated time during your party like after a prepared speech or toast.
Maybe you have decided to give each guest a small gift bag filled with a few homemade goodies or thank you favors to show your gratitude for their attendance. Slip a save the date card and magnet into each bag as well for an added surprise.
If you decide to use Save the Date magnets as favors for your engagement party, be sure to order enough magnets to mail to family and friends that are unable to attend and for those you will add to your guest list as your wedding day draws near.
