Make the Perfect Invitation 6 of the Best Save the Date Templates from North Carolina Lifestyle Blogger Adventures of Frugal Mom

So you’re getting married? Congratulations!

If you’re joining the ranks of the 61.24 million married couples in the US, the stress of planning a wedding may be getting to you. This makes sense- there’s so much to do! One thing you don’t need to be stressed out, though, is creating the perfect invitation to your reception or shower- there are some amazing save the date templates online that have you covered.

Read on to learn how to use these templates to craft a perfect DIY invitation!

1. Simple and Classy

While you’ve probably heard of minimalism as a trend in decorating a home, you may not know that it’s also a hot trend in graphic design. The saying that less is more is an awesome thing to keep in mind when creating a save the date. A solid background color like a romantic rose or ruby red will look amazing with curling ivory letters- and nothing more- standing out against it.

2. Photo Insert Templates

If you want a personal touch on your save the date invites, a photograph of yourself and your special someone will do the trick. Select an image that portrays the romantic, loving, and soft vibe that your relationship emanates. Then look into templates where you can seamlessly incorporate the perfect photo into your design!

3. Templates With Clip Art

As long as you don’t go overboard, clip art and transparent gifs can make a great addition to your save the date, too. Start out with a minimalist design that shows off the information you need, but insert a clip art drawing or two to give it a little more of a visual punch. A cartoonish diamond ring is a great idea, as is a floral wreath clip art. Be creative!

4. Perfect Patterns

While a solid color background is an aesthetic in and of itself, a simple pattern like floral print or polka dots can make your save the date look fun and inviting. Lots of templates have these patterns on them, but if you don’t like any of the ones you find, there are also those you can insert your own background design onto. 

5. Terrific Textures

Patterns aren’t the only way to get a certain vibe across on your invite. You can use templates that use graphic ideas like cross-hatching and stippling to create cool textures. If you’re wondering how to find textured cards (or any of the other designs above), Adobe has a lot of simple save the dates that you can choose from!

6. Graphics and Movement

One of the awesome things about having a digital save the date is that (unlike print cards) you can insert moving graphics into the file. This means moving gifs are an awesome idea. Remember that diamond ring clip art we talked about earlier? Make it glimmer. That photo of you and your special one together? Make the light on it dance!
