A traditional white or black invitation with formal calligraphy will provide a hint about the type of event to expect. Floral purple and orange wedding invitations or ones with a bold, modern font tend to hint at a more casual event.
However, regardless of the style and color of your wedding invitation you might want to consider putting the dress code on your invitations so your guests are not left to wonder what to wear to the wedding. You would not want guests to feel out of place by showing up in formal attire for a casual event. If you do not want to include a dress code on your invitations, consider putting it on the website or Facebook page for your wedding.
A simple and common way to include a dress code is in the lower right hand corner of your invitation. A formal event might say "black tie" or "formal attire" while a more casual event might say "cocktail attire" or "casual attire."
It is important to keep in mind that more traditional or formal white wedding invitations do not necessarily signify a formal event while purple and orange wedding invitations do not necessarily signify cocktail attire. Your guests will appreciate knowing precisely what type of attire is appropriate for the event.
Customer reviews of our Purple and Orange Wedding Invitations
March 27, 2015Super Cute Invites!
"I customized these invites with shades of purple and sage. They were SO cute!! I was worried it would be a very time consuming and frustrating task because I had to customize quite a bit including the main wording and didn't know if it could be done. I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was and how nice their customer service is. The quality was very good and the standard paper it came in was nice and thick. These will perfectly compliment our outdoor, rustic wedding!"
March 27, 2015Simple yet elegant
"I was looking for an invitation design that was simple yet elegant, and I found it in the Modish Marriage Signature Foil Wedding Invitation. The foil added that special touch. I also liked the size of the font for the bride's and groom's name. I liked this design so much that the only changes I made were the color of the paper (to white), the color of the foil (to silver), and the color of the font (to purple). I was even able to add our initials to the back, and "Est. 2015.""
March 26, 2015Beautiful Card
"Everything about this wedding invite was perfect to me. It is simple and elegant. I got it on the pearl shimmer paper, and it came out beautifully. Not sparkly, but just a little hint of shimmer in the design. I am having an outdoor wedding, and I think the design fits with that style wedding. Also, it shipped SO quickly. I got these in the mail less than a week after I placed the original order. So happy with every WPD order I've placed!"
