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.

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."

"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."
