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
January 30, 2015Beautiful Blue Invites
"Choosing and personalizing our wedding invites with Wedding Paper Divas was actually fun! I have heard unfortunate horror stories from engaged and married friends about their invitation fiasco. My fiancé and I could not have had a better time! We got to be creative and add personal touches to the already perfectly formatted invite. We were able to add pictures and specific quotes that suited us best. Everyone loves how professional they are and the constant surprise when telling others how simple they were to make is just the cherry on top! Thank you, Wedding Paper Divas for your countless selection (the only hard part was narrowing down which format we loved the most. There are so many!) Thank you for making the process easy to understand, thank you for the promptness of your delivery and thank you for your competitive prices! There is no question that I will be using this company again for future invites or anything of the sort! Sincerely, A Very Happy Soon-to-be Bride and costumer"

"I chose the shimmer paper and the purple, teal and green color for the sample. I absolutely loved it because those are my colors. I'm having a hard time deciding between this one and another one."
January 23, 2015LOVE this invitation!
"I absolutely love this invitation design and quality! I fell in love with the teal standard colors because my wedding is teal with silver and pink accents. I ordered the sample first and was not pleased with the stock paper quality. I ordered my invitations with the pearl white shimmer paper and they look and feel beautiful! I am so excited to send my invitations out next week! Absolutely beautiful!! Just in case you didn't read the prompt Wedding Paper Divas shows, these do require the additional postage just because they are square size. $0.70 stamps required."
January 21, 2015Very pleased
"I ordered invitations for my wedding. We were very impressed with the invitations and response cards. We received multiple compliments on how "beautiful" the invitations were. The standard paper used is still a nice thickness and the little extra for the gold tone envelopes was money well spent. They arrived a day early. The entire process was effortless and I would highly recommend it to anyone."

"We went with navy blue for the invitations, and got rid of the initials at the top. The designers were really helpful in making design edits. This design is simple, yet elegant, We were really pleased with the quality, and can't wait to send them to our guests!"
