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
January 27, 2015Perfect
"The invitation was perfect...the sentiment, the color combination, and the quality ...great. We customized with a solid back instead of stripes which gave it a little more of a traditional look. Everyone we sent them to commented on how lovely they were. Thanks so much for making this so easy."
January 23, 2015simple and elegant
"We did not want the cursive writing (mainly my fiance did not want..) but we still wanted somple elegant. This was the perfect combination. The team here was also very helpful in changing the colors to match our wedding."
January 22, 2015perfect choice for our October Wedding
"We ordered the suite for this design. As a gay couple living in Western North Carolina we are excited to finally be able to marry. We enjoy the Fall season and this design is both masculine and perfect for our October Wedding. We chose the rich chocolate print , gold shimmer backing card and envelope. Since we were not able to select the return address label option for the colored envelope, customer service worked with a designer to create an address label for us incorporating the same leaf design...AWESOME!"
January 20, 2015Wonderful product by a great company
"This was one of the designs I had chosen along with my order of the 8 samples for our wedding invitations. It had the perfect coloring for our blue/yellow wedding colors and a soft vintage feel. I had ordered without changing the text color and was highly pleased with the results, along with the detail of the review team and quick delivery."
January 19, 2015Amazing Quality
"I am so very pleased with the outcome of my invitations! The paper quality is amazing, very sturdy, smooth, and feels much more expensive that it was! The printing is precise and clear, and the colors are identical to what you see on the screen. I am beyond thrilled with my invites and cannot wait to send them out!"
