For ideas that are as limitless as your imagination, our online design tools let you customize any of our save the date birthday templates. Start by changing the all-important save the date birthday party wording to your liking. We start you off with some inspiration to build off of, but there aren’t any strict rules here. You’ll have license to edit the background of your online invitation, as well as the fonts, text color, layout, envelope, and liner. Add one of our hand-drawn stamps from the collection for a realistic final touch.
Getting the word out about your upcoming birthday party is simple. Once you’ve finished editing your design simply upload your guest list or connect your address book and send your save the dates by email, text, or shareable link. The best part is guests can add the date to their digital calendars straight from the invitation, making sure they will attend the big event.
Eight weeks in advance is the prime time to send your birthday party save the dates if you want a sensational turnout. If you’ve got lots of friends living in far-off locales that need plenty of notice for traveling, send your birthday save the dates up to three months beforehand. A little extra time leaves wiggle room for guests to get organized with travel plans and block the day off on their calendar before another event snags their attention. Once you’ve dispatched your gorgeously crafted save the date, the next step is sending the official birthday party invitation. If you’ve used our platform in the past, all your previous recipients’ information will be saved so all you need to do is select who’s attending. After sending your invitations, you’ll be able to receive RSVPs and stay up to date with the confirmations.
