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 16, 2015Unique Traditional!
"These perfectly fit the update we were looking for on the traditional black and white invitation. Wedding Paper Divas did a great job editing the wording to reflect my husband's late parents, and customizing the back. We tied them together with Tartan plaid ribbons to add a little extra holiday pop for our December wedding. We received so many compliments and couldn't have been happier!"
June 15, 2015Exactly what I wanted..!!
"I absolutely loved these invitations. I changed the color scheme to "rich red" and it looked perfect for my early fall wedding. I also had them write something on the back of the invite, and they totally understood what I was asking, and the finished product looked absolutely fabulous. I also wanted to call and speak with someone about my request to have some text printed on the back, and the gentleman that I spoke with was extremely professional and helpful. I ordered both my save the dates and invitations from this company and have been nothing short of 100% satisfied. Not to mention, I finalized my order on a Tuesday, and it was at my door on Saturday..so so fast!! It was awesome!"

June 10, 2015Awesome Autumn
"So beautiful! I wanted something that had that Fall feel without being "in your face" this design pays tribute to fall, but is subtle and abstract enough to not overwhelm the person reading the invitation. I also chose a different font so it would be easier to read, I suggest "Ameial" for the names and "Full Circle Bold" for the rest of the information."
