While Britney Spears original wedding invites are currently out of date, her guests are being advised not to throw them away - because they're worth a whopping $300 (GBP166) each.
The pop beauty and dancer Kevin Federline had originally planned to walk down the aisle on 16 October (04), and bought 100 invites featuring hand-beaded Chantilly lace and Swarovski crystals.
But things unexpectedly changed on 18 September (04), when the pair decided they'd wed in a surprise ceremony in front of just 27 friends and relatives.
Designer ELLEN BLACK of Los Angeles' LEHR + BLACK, who worked closely with the TOXIC singer to give the invites a "shabby chic" look, had mailed half of them to guests before she got a call saying the wedding would be a month earlier.
She says, "We had invitations that hadn't been sent, so we put a new piece (of paper) on top.
"I've already seen one of my original invitations on eBAY. Someone is trying to sell it for $4,000!"01/10/2004 02:49
