Save the Date Templates

Before sending out wedding invitations, many couples opt to send out a save the date invitation to let guests know they will be invited to the wedding. They’re like teaser trailers before the big reveal.

Save the date cards typically have less information than the actual wedding invitation. The focus is on the date and the location. Specific details can be saved for the wedding invitations.

Here are some save the date templates to prep people for your wedding.

Pink Roses Save the Date Template

Roses are a classic symbol of love. That’s why they’re perfect for using in your save the date card design.

This little save the date template combines a lovely script font with a simple white border for an elegant design. If your wedding theme features a different type of flower, simply search Venngage’s image library for a photo, or upload your own background and drag it into the template.
