Letting your loved ones know of your once in a lifetime event calls for effort in gargantuan proportions — utmost care and attention must be lovingly placed into every single detail, and with Canva, you have a free range of movement in designing this special announcement for your special day: You can opt to use your own lovey-dovey photographs for your Save the Date to make it more personable, and it’s 100% free! Or, you can also use any of Canva’s 1 million high quality images, graphics, and illustrations, some of which are free, and the premium images at a measly $1 each.
Whether you want a detailed photo collage of you and your partner, a simple floral announcement with simple print, or a unique idea that would be otherwise difficult for anybody but you do execute, you won’t need to worry about spending for a professional designer; Canva’s stunning Save the Date templates are tastefully crafted by our team of skilled designers, leaving you with an equally awesome design that only you can alter and customize to your personal taste, adding your preferred images, texts, graphics and effects.

Running late for your gown fitting but you still haven’t finalized your design? Or, god forbid, the date your guests will be saving have suddenly changed? Worry not! Canva lets you save your design for future use. (And if you don’t know what to design, check out our wedding save the date ideas and wedding invitations idea pages.)
Not to mention, you wouldn’t need to start from scratch if you ever need to create a different batch of Save the Dates for a different set of loved ones! Every time you make a design on Canva, it will be saved to your homepage, which you can then access again anytime you want. You can even access and edit your designs on the go thanks to our free iOS and Android apps. Then, just drag and drop new images, texts, and effects for an alternative version of your design, or a brand new design altogether. Easy, right?
