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.

"I ordered my cards after completing the design. I made further changes and nothing was too much trouble, the amendments were made without fuss. The paper quality of the invitations and the envelopes were excellent. They even came with a tissue insert for the envelope and an extra 7 cards as spares. Service was exceptional and delivery very quick Will definitely be recommending to friends and family."

August 26, 2014Simply Beautiful William Arthur Invitations
"Can't say enough about the quality and "class" of this traditional heavyweight William Arthur invitation! Simply stunning and we received so many compliments! WPD was so easy to work with - spacing and wording was exactly as I wanted it to be. The online chat is great and so helpful. It was so nice to have William Arthur include a few extra invitations at no charge."
August 5, 2014Absolutely AMAZING!
"WOW is all I continue to say. I am so unbelievably happy with the final product of my invitations. I had ordered several samples and this one stuck out immediately! I loved the design and the gold color on the creme stock card. Although there was other color options when ordering, I kept the gold as I thought it was very classy and appropriate for our venue. I had a couple of designer requests made to the invite so I was anxious to see how it would finally look in person. It came out awesome! I had requested the grooms parents names be written under his and that "black tie optional" be added to the bottom right. My fiance and I are so very happy with the way they came out and I cannot wait to send them out to all my guests. We also had the return addresses printed on all the envelopes as well as a matching gold liner added to the envelopes."
