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 14, 2015Elegant and classy
"I am so happy with my invitations. The quality of the paper is great...weighty and perfectly textured. The design is so elegant. The only thing I would say is that they are smaller than I expected but I was reading that's that is a good thing as it saves on postage! Service was also prompt and a pleasant experience."

"Our invitations arrived recently (sooner than expected) and look absolutely beautiful! The design requests we submitted were perfect and really helped to make our invitations unique."
July 1, 2015Beautiful and Classy
"I am so happy with these invitations! They are simple, yet beautiful and classy. I wanted to put all the information (reception and all) on one card, and I needed to make a second set in another language. The designer followed my instructions perfectly and made great suggestions to fit the text on the page. They turned out even better than expected. The paper quality (I used the shimmer paper) was excellent. I would recommend the shimmer paper. I can't say enough about the service as well. The proofs were done so quickly, the people on the phone were amazing and friendly and the package was delivered days ahead of time. The only hiccup I had was that they were unable to tell me what the customs/duties would be so I had to just keep my fingers crossed. In the end, it wasn't so expensive (about $60 for Canada). I would recommend Wedding Paper Divas to any bride-to-be!"
June 30, 2015Simply Perfect!
"My color theme for my wedding it a variation of purples and this invitation was just perfect for it. The quality is also great! Delivery was amazingly fast! I am very satisfied with my finished product and would definitely recommend them to anyone."
June 28, 2015Gorgeous!
"I used these for my wedding invitations and everyone who received them RAVED! They are nice and thick and printed beautifully. DO NOT forget to include the reception information on your invite like I did! I had the church information but failed to include location and start time for the cocktail hour! It simply says "reception to follow." I also took these incites and glued them into a pocket fold that was gold. I put stickers with our initials on them to seal the pocket fold. Looked AMAZING"
