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
November 11, 2014Oustanding quality and service
"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 21, 2014Elegant and classic
"I was very happy to receive my invitations, the small changes I made online were honored and they arrived before expected. I love them in gold, along with the shimmer paper. They reflect a very traditional, simple yet elegant look I was going for. Envelopes are thick and nice and I can't wait to send them out!"
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."
