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
December 3, 2013Absolutely perfect
"I can't say enough about how excellent this invitation is! We ordered them for our winter wedding and they are just exquisite. The paper is heavy and is very good quality, while the silver/grey text matches our wedding colors. All our guests are raving about them! I wish WPD had a wedding program to match this design because we would definitely use it!"
October 10, 2013Exceeded expectations
"this invitation exceeded my expectations. I had ordered a sample card before I purchased it and the final product came out beautiful! I used the Chambord color to match the theme of my wedding and it was pretty. It was not as purple as I was expecting but it was still gorgeous. I also used the Pearl Shimmer paper which gave it an extra level of class. Everyone who has received the invitation comments on how beautiful it is; I am really impressed with this product. Shout out to Alain who helped make the final product more cohesive."
September 11, 2013Classic!
"I ordered these in the gray (as shown). They were absolutely stunning! We were planning a classy event that was not casual but not super formal. These were the perfect invitation to capture the simple elegance we were going for. Our family and friends raved about them! Plus the thermography always adds a little something extra as opposed to flat ink on a page. (The ink is raised on the page - very sophisticated). They order was shipped quickly and the design team was wonderful to work with. When I edited the invitation, it looked perfect but then when I went to finalize it the text tightened up and the text didn't fill out the page (horizontally) as much. I mentioned this to the design team and they agreed and fixed it immediately. LOVE LOVE LOVE these. You can't go wrong."
September 5, 2013PERFECT CARD
"The overall quality of this product was flawless! It was just what I was looking for, it is perfect for my perfect day! I got so many compliments on them!"
August 28, 2013Sweet & Charming Design
"I couldn't have been happier with the end product of this card. An earlier review described the card stock as thin and mentioned that the ink rubbed off - none of this was true for the version I received. This design is perfect for the rustic woodland ceremony I'm planning. Folks who received the invite called them sweet, classy and romantic. You won't be sorry with these."
