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
April 18, 2015Beautiful card!
"The cards turned out beautifully! I was able to personalize the text so that it read both of our parents names, which was important to me. The colors matched out summer wedding perfectly. I am so pleased with them!"
April 18, 2015Beautiful
"These invitations are beautiful online and even more lovely in hand. The quality is excellent. I had two things I wanted to change about them, and the designer attended to my requests efficiently and did just what I asked. When they arrived, they were perfect! Speaking of arrival, they came in less than a week! I was surprised and overjoyed. I will absolutely be recommending Wedding Paper Divas to everyone needing wedding invitations that I know!"
April 17, 2015Lovely!
"Some girls dream about their weddings when they're young. I dreamed about wedding invitations!! I initially contacted a local stationer to reproduce an expensive letterpress design I found on another site, but was so disappointed with the results. Enter Wedding Paper Divas! This fun, floral design perfectly conveys the relaxed romantic garden feel of our wedding and I cannot wait to send them out in a few days. I ordered these in light purple and made several design requests regarding the response cards (we are doing electronic RSVPs via our wedding website). All of my questions and requests were addressed promptly and professionally. I ordered kraft paper backings, which just enhance this invitation's charm. Love them, love them, love them!"
April 16, 2015Exceptional
"I was very pleased with the way these turned out. The paper was firm, but lightweight so I was able to mail my invitations with only one stamp! Also, it was great having the designer proofread it before shipping the product. Will definitely recommend!"
April 15, 2015Just as expected and better!
"I ordered a sample pack and although it took longer that I expected to receive, I wasn't overly concerned as it was shipped from America to Australia. The pack contained samples of paper and envelopes and was fantastic. The quality of the printing is perfection and the paper is beautiful. We are having a hard time deciding which we like best. Very sophisticated and fun invitation."
