I would use double stick tape.  It’s very strong.

Quackadoo:  Glue dots do not bleed at all as they are not glue but solid. You can even get extra thin ones so they don’t make the paper pop up at all. You can buy them at any craft store and they are WAYYYY faster than regular glue. I used them for just about everything! 🙂

I bought double sided glue tape from Kmart (in Aus). Hopefully you have similar there, it’s great! Super thin and very strong 🙂 I’ve made my save the dates using it

Quackadoo:  The glue did not bleed through at all. You can cut the tip of the nozzle at an angle so that you get a thin stream of glue if you want. It dries clear if you get some outside of where you want it to, and you can just rub it off when it is dry.

Quackadoo:  I put a line close to the outer edges, and I put an “x” of glue in the middle.

I used glue dots when I attached my STD magnets to cardstock. The glue dots were perfect for me because they were 200 for like $2 at Target, and they were easy to use. They’re also not 100% permanent when applied to the back of the magnet, so my guests were able to peel the magnet from the cardstock. Glue dots should be perfect for your invitations, since they’ll adhere well to paper-on-paper.

I used a 3m glue stick, worked like a charm on the heaviest cardstock
