Memorial Day marks the start of the summer party season, and it’s a great opportunity to get together with the people you love most to celebrate freedom and commemorate the sacrifices that made it possible. Whatever kind of get-together you’re planning for the day—whether it’s an epic backyard barbecue or a neighborhood block party—spread the word with a Memorial Day invitation from Paperless Post, then hang your star-spangled banners, stock up on snacks and beer, and prepare to throw a patriotic party for the ages.
Red, white, and blue never go out of style for Memorial Day, and we have tons of designs showcasing the Stars and Stripes—along with lots of other summery themes, from poppy-laden summer party invitation templates to festive BBQ invitations. Since all of our templates are customizable, you can even choose the perfect Memorial Day invitation from our other collections—like cocktail party invitations or Fourth of July invitations—and edit them to your liking.
We’re confident you’ll fall head over heels for our pre-made templates, but giving your Memorial Day party invitations a personal spin is easy with our simple design tools. Edit the invitation wording, try out different font styles and color schemes, and add photos or stickers for an extra-special touch. Use customizable Blocks to add parking instructions, entertainment details, and other information about your party while keeping the invitation clean and uncluttered. Throwing a company Memorial Day event? Add your business logo to your invitation to give it a branded look.
Once you’ve fine-tuned your invitation, choose a color for your digital envelope, pick a pattern for the liner, and affix a theme-appropriate stamp to give your recipients a paper invitation experience—online.
Throwing a party is always rewarding, but it comes with a hefty to-do list. Sending your invitations online with Paperless Post helps you shorten that list—just import your contacts, and send your invitations via email, text, or shareable link. Our online guest management tools include a real-time RSVP tracker that gives you an accurate headcount for your party, reminders you can send to recipients who haven’t opened the invitation yet, and guest messaging that lets you send broadcast or individual messages to attendees with last-minute information and updates. Once the party is in the books, you can post pictures to the Comment Wall and send a group message to say thanks for making it memorable.
Since Memorial Day is a popular holiday, and many people make plans early, send your party invitations out at least a month before the event. If it’s a large to-do with a hefty guest list, send your invitations a couple of months ahead of time, before your invitees make other plans—you can always send a reminder closer to the party with our guest messaging tool. Or, send a save the date card two or three months ahead, then follow up with the invitation a few weeks before the big day.
