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, 2014Very Very Happy
"I am absolutley in love with these. They came out beautifully. My wedding is in the fall and these matched my theme so well. At the time I placed my order there was a mix up as to how the finish was to be on my order. Instead of arguing with me, WPD made the corrections and shipped it FEDEX to me straight away. The customer service, the desgins, the quality of products are all what make Wedding Paper Divas the perfect place to order from for the budget bride."

May 11, 2014great design service
"The text layout was not appropriate for what I needed this invite for. So I sent my design request out and my design needs were met to the T! I was very happy I could use this design in the way that I wanted. They were very accommodating."
April 3, 2014Wonderful all around!
"This invitation was perfect for our wedding. It had the simple yet beautiful, casual yet elegant look. I received so many compliments on it and was so pleased with the product myself. The staff was SO helpful. In my haste and excitement in ordering the invitation, I actually forgot to write down the DATE of the wedding! (I know right?) They called me and asked if that was intentional or a mistake. WHAT A CATCH ON THEIR END! I would really suggest this for anyone who thinks they can fall in love with it like I did."
April 2, 2014Split Swirl review
"I ordered this invitation, inner and outer envelope, and response card with black print and absolutely loved it. The paper is thick and the thermography printing gives it a more formal feel. The printing on the swirls have some texture to them -- they almost shimmer. It's a detail that made me fall in love with this invitation that you can't see on the computer screen. I liked that the response cards mimic the design on the invitation."
