Hi, I’m Samantha the chief editor for LunarInk.com.  Welcome to my wedding blog.  When I was getting married, my soon to be grandmother-in-law a Carlson Craft Invitations dealer.  She introduced me to the wealth of invitations available in her catalog and I was impressed.  I ordered my invitations and was so happy with them that when she retired as a retailer, I took over for her.

Formal Menu Card

I believe in helping brides and grooms find the perfect reflection of themselves in their stationary. Wedding stationary sets the stage of your wedding for guests by reflecting your theme and style.  It is the first and last impression your guests with have of you both.  So while most brides and grooms do not have an unlimited budget, its our goal at LunarInk.com to help you make the right impression.  We do not sacrifice quality for the sake of budget.  Your money can go farther with our invitations.

Dazzling Diamond

Many “budget” invitations offered by other sites sacrifice the quality of their paper and make you do the printing to save you money.  The result is less than stellar; basically, an invitation that looks like it was printed from an inkjet or laser printer.  At LunarInk.com, we use high quality paper for all our invitations.  We also use thermography (raised print) to print your invitations.  However for the DIYers, you can print your own invitations on our quality paper by purchasing one of our DIY invitation kits.  Most of our invitations can be shipped to you in 24-48 hours and we also print in multiple languages.  If you have any other questions, visit our FAQs page or contact a representative.  So give us a try by ordering a sample invitation, you will be able to see and feel the quality we offer.

Perfect Wedding Reception Center Pieces

Here are some of my tips for beautiful wedding reception center pieces.

Keep it to scale by looking at the size of the table and chairs. For a smaller table, put together a smaller centerpiece so that your guests have room for their plates, silverware and glasses. But don’t be afraid to use height to get a fuller look. If the table is larger, a larger centerpiece or a group of smaller pieces is a better choice.

Choose something that makes sense with the reception site. An outdoor reception in the heat will not be a great place for flowers not in water.

Keep to your theme, but you can always incorporate something unusual as well. So if you have a beach theme, you can always use shells and sand but spice it up with other beach themed decor as well. Sea gulls, row boats, sand buckets and shovels are great too. Don’t be afraid to keep looking if you can’t find what you’re after right away.

Don’t be afraid to use color. With Spring already here and Summer just around the corner, color is definitely in. You can make a statement by using colors to your greatest advantage. Take a look at a color wheel and find out what is attractive to you. If you like sunny yellow, try adding a touch of purple as well. These colors offset each other because they are complimentary instead of being analogous. For more tips on color choices and to see some different color wheels, click here.

And as always, go with your gut. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it.

What Are Wedding Invitation Seals For?

What Are Wedding Invitation Seals For?

Ok, you’re shopping for wedding invitations and you see at the bottom of your screen some other recommended products that you can buy. One of them is of course an invitation seal and you are thinking what is it for? Wedding invitation seals have several purposes.

The first purpose being to help you ensure your invitation makes it through the mail to your guests. We all love to get mail, (I think no one loves to get mail more than my husband who looks for it on Sundays), but everyone gets annoyed when an envelope arrives and it has been damaged and there is nothing in it. Wedding invitations run the risk of being damaged and losing their contents because they can come in unusual sizes and be bulky. Remember, you are sending a lot of important personal information when you mail an invitation and you want it to get to your guests. Invitation seals help to keep your envelopes sealed with all of your information inside of them.

Seals also serve a decorative purpose as well. If you have a very plain invitation, you can add some interest using invitation seals. These seals can be added onto an invitation or used on the envelope. Seals come in many shapes, sizes and colors. They are also inexpensive. So if you can’t afford that great invitation like this one.
