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
May 19, 2015Very Pleased!
"I am beyond happy with the way these invites turned out. I originally bought them with the glitter background in the matte paper (my error, the part about the glitter is noted in the product description and I was very excited when I was ordering them) I was disappointed when I received them (it just looked too plain on the back) and ended up returning them. The customer service rep I worked with during the return process was very helpful and I had my money back in no time. Then I re-ordered them in the Pearl White Shimmer paper which looks BEAUTIFUL. It's really makes a difference in how the invites look. Very high quality paper. Just to play it on the safe side I got purple on the back and it looks wonderful with the wedding colors. I also ordered the enclosure cards and put another photo of us on the back. It was a perfect touch! The flowers on the front add just enough and really tie in with our garden venue. I can't wait to send these out to our guests."
May 19, 2015Elegant, Simple, Classy
"I picked the Raspberry color and detailed everything in the card in the special instructions portion - bc i needed my invites to be in Spanish! And the turnaround was fantastic - the designer sent it back just as i had detailed and I was able to proofread and approve and the delivery was fast. Great quality - i used the square edges on this design and it just looks so nice and elegant the raspberry is a beautiful magenta / fuchsia tone which are the colors of my wedding. Really liked the way these invites turned out. Thanks!"

"My theme for the wedding is roses & pearls & this red card goes perfect since I will be carrying a red bouquet, I love the cut of the card, it is unique. I am very pleased with the quality, looks exactly as it did online."
May 12, 2015Incredible wedding invites
"I NEVER review products and felt compelled to share my thoughts on the finished product of our wedding invitations. I'm sharing because I picked these invites based off previous reviews and photos. So helpful! The designer I worked with was fantastic. The edited version was sent back to me so quickly, and was always what I asked for. Print quality and paper quality are fantastic. The paper is a nice recycled beige colour. Other reviews said they were white. The quality of the image is pretty good. Not amazing but we are perfectly happy. My invitations also arrived early. 5 Stars! Overall I'm thrilled with the invites and have been getting lots of nice compliments on them!"
May 12, 2015I LOVE these invites!
"I did extensive personalization with this invite. I had custom colors with the flowers and different font (also in different colors). I got my proof quickly and it matched what I envisioned in my mind exactly! When the invites were delivered they were beautiful and the colors were awesome. I just sent them out and have received lots of compliments on them!"
