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 21, 2014Pointsettia Perfection
"I ordered these invitations for my wedding and I could not be happier. We chose the amethyst invitations with shimmer paper and had the 'perfect poinsettia' design printed on the back of the cards as well. They turned out so wonderfully. Even my mother-in-law to be liked them. We also chose the gold envelopes and they look very elegant paired with the amethyst. Any concerns I had ordering online were not necessary. The order even arrived (internationally) in only 3 days! I definitely recommend this design."

"I ordered my cards after completing the design. I made further changes and nothing was too much trouble, the amendments were made without fuss.

Service was exceptional and delivery very quick Will definitely be recommending to friends and family."
