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
July 3, 2015Perfect invitation!
"We ordered these cards for our fall wedding and we couldn't be happier!! Customer service was very helpful and answered all my questions and concerns!! Invitations arrived earlier then expected. Extremely pleased :) We ordered the rose gold foil colour and it is very whimsical!"
July 2, 2015Great Card!
"I was so afraid to order my shipment without seeing the exact card proof but I love them! I had ordered the LINEN background because others had recommended it, and instead of the textured I ordered the PEARL WHITE SHIMMER for a more modern look. I couldn't be happier with them. It looks like, from other reviewers, you really have to change the background to linen if you want the shimmer. I hadn't liked the roughness of the original sample. The red is a bit on the pink side but not too much. The designers were able to put the little Ganesh in the top circle for me which I was very impressed with! I definitely recommend!"
June 29, 2015In love with my invites!
"I couldn't be happier with our invitations (and inserts/thank you cards). We requested the font to be in purple to match our colors, and it looks great. Something I didn't even think of was to make the back pattern purple as well, which they did on their own. Great quality and fast shipping. I can't wait to send these out!"
June 26, 2015Perfect!
"I honestly cannot say enough about the customer service, customization process, and this beautiful invitation! I was SO nervous to order my wedding invitations online, but I will be telling all my friends to order from wedding paper divas! I was able to COMPLETLY customize my invitations and RSVP's to have the exact format and look I was wanting. Upgrading to the thicker paper is completely worth it for the price! I am beyond happy."
June 24, 2015Lovely Made Even Better
"This is a simple elegant card but the bride and groom didn't like the organge color of the coral, so with the designer's help it was changed to a smoke gray - both the invitation as well as response and details card. Feel free to be creative - you can have your own perfect card! Only dissappointment was they don't provide "inside" envelopes - only outside. Too late to add them now. Should be provided at no extra cost."
