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
September 30, 2013Simple and Classy
"I bought this invitation for my upcoming winter wedding. I adore the way it turned out. I did the dark with lighter writing and payed the little extra to get the shimmer added which gives it that little extra something. :) Also, the size of the cards is more for postage...I ran into 20 cents more per invite..not too bad really."
August 15, 2013LOVE THESE
"These are so cute I have gotten nothing but good comments and awesome feed back about these all the way down the the RSVP cards. I liked that they gave us two options to pick from due to us having to the age range of our guest attending our reception. All in all from my save the dates to my wedding invitations to my RSVP I am 100% in LOVE with wedding paper divas and recommend them to everyone I meet that is planning a wedding! When the time comes that we decide to have our little one I will be going through their sister company tiny prints!"
August 7, 2013Classy and Elegant Invitation
"If your names are long, there will be no problem fitting them on this invitation. You will love this. The paper quality is nice and thick. The thermography printing was beautiful and perfect. I am so glad that I ordered these invitations. I ordered eggplant and the color is very deep. Really pleased with everything at Wedding Paper Divas."
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."

"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."
