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
June 30, 2015Gorgeous invitation
"I really enjoyed these invitations. They are beautiful, especially when printed out (we used the default card stock and they were gorgeous). I think the invitations are elegant and lovely; perfect for a fall wedding. I really liked that I could put both set of parents on the invitation without it looking too busy or awkward. I loved the edits that the website's wedding designer/reviewer did to make sure everything was perfect. Even better, the cards arrived ahead of schedule. Flawless customer service and a beautiful invitation."
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."
June 23, 2015Elegant and Simple
"I am having and as Asian-American wedding and was looking for an invitation that wouldn't put us over out budget but still had a nice Asian flair. I loved the design and to top it off the little elephant on the front and back made everything come together perfectly. My family is from Laos the land of a million elephants. I was able to keep the information simple yet it still made the invitation beautiful. The customer service was wonderful. I received my proofs within a timely manner and when I did come in contact with any staff they were always friendly, and knowledgeable."
June 22, 2015Wonderful invitation
"We loved these invitations. The card was nice thick quality but didn't go over the weight to use a normal stamp (Canadian stamp). The picture was excellent quality. The editor did a great job to unify the font (although did make a grammatical error but we caught it on review)."
