Creative Uses For Fake Certificats and 11 Free Templates

Do you ever wish marriage licenses and birth certificates came in duplicate, so that you could display one and keep another locked in a fireproof safe? Or that they came in sextuplicate so that the in-laws and spouses could have a copy, too. Or maybe even more than six so that you can use them as gifts or invitations.

With our fake certificates, you can do just that. In this article, we’ll look at some creative uses for fake marriage, birth, and divorce certificate templates. And, at the bottom of the article, we offer 11 free printable certificates in a variety of styles for you to choose from.

Creative Fake Certificate Ideas


Printable certificates are a fun and unique way to share the news of important events going on in your life. As an example, you can use a fake birth certificate to record and announce the birth of a child. Parents can save a copy of the certificate as a keepsake and mail out as many others as they want as a birth announcement. In the same way, fake baby birth certificates can also be used by parents who are still expecting—a pregnant mom may want to use the birth certificate to announce her pregnancy to the world.

Fake marriage certificates can be sent to friends and relatives who couldn’t make the wedding, in order to announce the date and place of your nuptials.

Similarly, copies of a printed fake divorce certificate can be put in the mail and sent to people who need to know but aren’t in that select group with whom you have to have that awkward and uncomfortable face-to-face meeting.


Fake certificate printouts are an inexpensive and fun way to decorate for an upcoming event. You could use fake birth certificates as a cute touch to add to a baby shower. Friends and family members of the new parents may want to use the certificates to decorate when mom and baby come home from the hospital. Marriage certificates and marriage licenses work as a decorative item for a wedding shower, bachelor party, or bachelorette party. At the other end of the relationship spectrum, divorce parties are becoming increasingly popular. Men and women are eager to celebrate their newly single status, and a fake divorce certificate can be used as part of the party theme.

Certificates could become a permanent part of your home décor, as well. A printable marriage certificate is the ideal commemorative item for your marriage. Official marriage certificates are not always aesthetically pleasing, not typically hung on the walls, and are expensive to get copies of. For home display purposes, you’ll want a certificate with a beautiful and tasteful design.


With fake certificates, you will save time and money by creating unique invitations to special events. Marriage certificate templates can be used within the invitations for a bridal shower or even the wedding. Guests will want to save the invitation as a keepsake to look back on the special day.

Gag Gifts

You can’t go wrong with a fake certificate as a novelty item or gag gift. Did your spouse or in-law play a wicked trick on you last April 1st? Then consider getting back at them using one of our fake divorce certificates as a gag gift. Mail the certificate to them at the office to give them the scare of their lives.

A fake birth certificate could be a hilarious way to shock the father-to-be and in-laws with the news you’re expecting. You could also invite your friends and family over to announce the news. Display the birth certificate in a prominent areas of your home and see who is first to notice the announcement.


Marriage and childbirth are events you may only experience once or twice in your lifetime. Your family will want to save mementos to always remember the special day. Fake marriage certificates can be given as a cherished memento to immediate family members, such as the couple’s parents. Add a copy of the marriage certificate to your photo albums and scrapbooks as a remembrance of your special day. You could even make a collage with your certificate and a collection of wedding photos. The same could be done with a fake birth certificate and photos of your newborn baby.

Another cute novelty idea for a marriage certificate is using the printable as a way to propose to your loved one. The certificates could also be fun props for engagement and wedding photos.


Fake certificates permit you to have a hard copy record of a marriage, divorce, or a child’s birth. A fake divorce certificate and fake marriage certificate are especially helpful if you don’t have immediate access to an official copy.

Official birth certificates often take weeks to arrive, so you may want to use a fake certificate as a placeholder. Fake birth certificates also offer you the option of having either a copy of your short-form or long-form birth certificate on hand. A short-form certificate contains only the baby’s vital statistics, while a long-form birth certificate may also have parents’ addresses, names of those present at birth, and the time of birth.
