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
July 3, 2013Cute for fall!
"These are fabulous invites! I ordered exactly the same colors shown but changed the wording substantially. A lot fit on the card. These invites are the perfect fit for our traditional church wedding, but kind of casual reception."
June 11, 2013Very Happy
"The invitations are just exactly what we wanted. We are an older couple. The wording and the style suit us perfectly. They are elegant without being formal."
May 28, 2013Happy Bride
"The color of leaves is what caught our eye and we were not disappointed. What you see is what you get as far as color. Paper weight is very good. The only thing we would change is to add a few more leaves to the front left side of invitation. Designer and customer service were very helpful. A stress free experience."
May 24, 2013My second favorite
"This was one of the samples that I had ordered when picking out my invitations. I am having a fall wedding and several of the favors I have picked out have fall leaves on them, which matched this invitation very closely. The only reason why I did not pick this one was because one of the other samples I chose matched our color scheme better."
