Open a bottle of happiness
Grab soft drink bottles from the kabadiwala, clean it well, and fill it with elements, like coloured sand, a little glitter and a hint of some breezy fragrance. Send it to your friends and relatives with a small scroll giving information about your wedding venue. You can also tie some ribbon around the bottle to make it into a cute keepsake for your guests. This is a great DIY (do it yourself) card for those who love to recycle!

Kuch meetha ho jaye!
Chocolate is something, which everyone associates with happiness; be it your first birthday or Diwali celebrations. So why not print your wedding invite on one of the quintessential elements of your life? You can also include creative ingredients (love, care and happiness) and a whacky MRP (your guests' blessings) on the cover.

The Great Indian Circus
Indian weddings are no less than a circus with their bright lights, grandeur, and over the top decoration. So, send invites in complete circus ishtyle with tickets, show highlights (i.e. the wedding), date, and venue.

The edible card
Instead of opting for boring handmade paper, you can print your wedding invites on something as innovative as eggs (wooden of course!). If you are not excited about eggs, then you can opt for other things. Let your imagination soar!

Movie poster wedding invite
Bollywood themed wedding invites are a passé; instead get your wedding card designed like a movie poster, with 'expert reviews' from dadima and dadaji, a brief glimpse to your love story and an awesome title.

A ticket to your wedding
Get your wedding card printed on the template of an airline ticket mentioning the venue, the date, time, food and other details. To make it look authentic, give the 'airline' a name like 'Love Express' or something really quirky. You can send it across in a formal looking envelope. Card in the form of a passport is also another innovative idea.

A boxful of love
If you want to give your guests a pleasant surprise, you can get your wedding invite printed on the inside of a box and fill it with goodies. It could be dry fruits, sweets, chocolates, confetti, a showpiece or anything else you can think of. They would definitely have a smile on their face when they open the box.
So don your creative caps and send some cool and 'out of the box' invites to all your guests.
