2012 Wedding Invitation Trends

Personal logos and monograms are being created to be used throughout a wedding invitation suite and beyond for a consistent look to unify a wedding celebration. Carnival and circus themes are also big this year. Many rustic ranch, barn, or outdoor/tent weddings are being featured and a corresponding invitation can reflect that theme. Watercolor washes and illustrations on invitations is a new trend observed. Tradition is also coming back with the use of Family crests, Foil and engraving. A fun twist that KMS is experimenting with is the use of watercolor to design a personal wedding crest for a couple. Colors for spring are soft hues such as pale pinks, peaches, and creams. Fall colors will be more earthy. Traditional invitation colors will be black/white or silver/white with shades of grey or bright pops of color. Letterpress and engraving are a constant in wedding invitations, but there are other options for smaller budgets such as thermography or digital/offset printing.

MN Bride Magazine recently posted this article to their Real Weddings Column on-line. Katie Murphy Stationery is among the group of wedding professionals that helped to bring a beautiful evening together for Tom and Amara Abood's wedding in St. Paul and Minneapolis. This couple's creativity in planning their wedding brought out the best in all of the wedding professionals listed. What a joy it was to create the wedding invitations for their ceremony at St. Thomas Aquinas Chapel, and their reception at The Minikahda Club, their rehearsal dinner invitation, personal stationery and programs.

My First Press

I am excited to announce my first press in the Nov. 2010 issue of Mpls/St. Paul Magazine, thanks to my friend Jayne Haugen-Olson from Mpls./St. Paul Magazine and Delta Sky. Thank you Jayne!

It is very true that we all rely on each other. I give a big thank you and shout to all the women in my life who have inspired me, who have networked with me, who have purchased my graphic design and stationery services, and who simply let me bend their ear from time to time.

I am flattered to be mentioned in Jayne's column with many other inspiring women who are further along in this jumping off the cliff adventure of entrepreneurship, while raising a family and sometimes maintaining two careers. I am inspired by my friend Laura, who put her medical career on hold to raise a family, and by Jayne who has stepped into two very big jobs at the Mpls/St. Paul family of Magazines, and by my "sister" Julie who is a single mother and works full time at National Camera Exchange as their general manager, and many many more of you in between.
