Create pretty save the date cards for your wedding

The wedding planning can begin

You've said yes, the date has been set. Which means there's going to be a big celebration soon! But besides organising the wedding ceremony, reception, wedding dress and much more, one thing must not be forgotten: the earlier your guests are informed the better.
It's high time at least 6 months before the wedding: friends and relatives should be told the good news. As what is more wonderful than announcing a wedding! Wedding announcements and invitations are of paramount importance in wedding planning. In today's digital world, we hardly receive any more pretty cards by post - making it all the nicer to fish an envelope with good news out of the letterbox instead of a bill for once. It there's a colourful envelope in the letterbox it's obvious: the contents must be something pretty special.

How do I design a save-the-date card?

In a save-the-date card, only the wedding date and perhaps the location of the wedding must first be mentioned (this is especially important if you are getting married abroad and the guests have to plan a trip). The bride and groom can take their time for all further information. After all, the lavish party should be well planned.

There are no limits to your creativity when designing save-the-date cards. Photos of the bride and groom can be used for the cards or you can combine them with other relevant subjects. The save-the-date cards will be especially beautiful and harmonious if you adjust the pictures, font colours and font types. If the style of the wedding is romantic, the pictures for the cards can reflect this. Earthy and natural colour shades are perfect for this. If the wedding is more modern, the photos on the save-the-date cards can be funnier.

Whether your opt for funny poses or a romantic look - tips for the perfect couple shots are available here from the professional. In addition to pictures of the future bridal couple, floral patterns and shots of your favourite places are also good for the design. You can design these with the help of a collage, for example. Our diverse templates will make it easy for you to design your individual save-the-date cards. You can choose from both simple and colourful designs as well as numerous collage layouts.


Adjust the pictures on the wedding announcements in terms of style and colouring. Use uniform filters for this or look for a similar picture mood.

If you prefer to use your own design, you can easily upload it in JPG format.

The choice is yours

It is not always easy to imagine what the save-the-date cards will ultimately look like if you only see them on the screen. If you can't decide, just order a few different copies and then decide on a version that you like once you have the printed card in your hand.
