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
November 4, 2013amazing
"The Invitations were perfect, service was fantastic very accomadating to making small changes to personalize our invitations to suit our needs! So so happy"
October 27, 2013Perfect Invitation
"This invitation is unique and entirely charming. The flowers on the front and back look like chalk drawings, which will be easy to replicate on chalk boards at our reception. In person, the invitation looks luxe and super personal - as if we had it designed just for us. We added text to the back at the invitation at no extra charge, which was a huge bonus. I'd highly recommend this design."
October 18, 2013Lovely design
"We chose this design for our invites, response cards, thank you cards, stickers and direction cards and are very happy. We picked the pearl shimmer paper which gives the invite a lovely glow. We asked the designer to change some of the font and got our names and the venues name start with capital letters but they look stunning either way! Also had them sent from California to Australia within 4 days. Very happy, good work."
September 26, 2013Wonderful Experience
"We loved the way our invitations turned out. We used custom colors and changed fonts around, so the personal touches by the design team really helped bring everything together. They even checked in with us to make sure we meant to order the enclosure cards in a different paper (which we didn't) and made some modifications that I would have overlooked. Great customer service experience and beautiful invitations!"
September 18, 2013Very vintage
"This card was great. I got the purple samples.. Perfect for a vintage wedding. The color was light and airy and very romantic. Still didn't hit the spot for me, though. Still very lovely."
