Quirky Wedding Invitation Ideas.

For her second wedding (to Kris Humphries) Kim Kardashian's invitations were written on cream card, encased in a silk box and covered with hundreds of black diamonds. A new bar was set. It's no longer enough to send out a simple wedding invitation-if you want to stand out from the crowd, you have to do something quirky. Here are a few of our favourites to get you started!

1. Fridge magnet

Magnets have become particularly popular over the last few years-possibly because most print shops now offer this service at a reasonably low cost. Simply choose your text and a romantic image, and have your invite printed on a magnet. Every time your guests reach for a cold beer, they'll be reminded of your big day.

2. Festival lanyard

Many bohemian couples are following in the footsteps of Kate Moss et al and planning a festival style wedding complete with tee-pees, bands and street food. Why not kick-start the festival theme early by printing your wedding invitation on a lanyard? Your wedding party will get VIP passes, naturally, and the bride and groom will have 'Access All Areas'.

3. Laser cut paperwork

Laser cut paper will ensure that you have the prettiest invite on the mantelpiece. Create delicate patterns in the paper, or add sweet details such as bunting or paper dolls.

4. Scratch card

For a quirky twist to a classic card, hide your wedding date under a layer of scratch card coating. Include a penny in each envelope so your guests can have fun scratching away the grey panels to reveal the date. For an extra special touch, personalise your penny with an image of yourselves in profile, and the date of your wedding along the edges.

5. Message in a bottle

Choose vintage glass bottles that have been well cleaned out, then roll the invitation into a scroll and tie it with a piece of string. Pop the scroll into the neck of the bottle, and voila! They will probably require hand delivery, but that's all part of the fun.

6. Plane tickets

If you are having your wedding abroad, it makes perfect sense to send your guests 'plane ticket' invites. Mock these up with the date and location of your wedding, and have some fun with them by making up silly names for the airline and airport, based on your soon-to-be married names.

7. Box it up

Ok, so maybe Kim Kardashian was onto something with her boxed invitation idea, there is something very luxurious about opening up a box to find a crisp, clean wedding invitation inside. You don't need to cover yours in crystals to make a statement, but you could add some scented tissue paper, dried flower confetti or a personalised handkerchief inside if you want to give your guests something extra special.
