Im not sure of the weight I used, but you can make it thicker by double matting it if your budget allows for it (and you want to take the time to do it!)  I used 90lbs cardstock for scrapbooking (Bazzil brand) and most of the time it is very stiff, seems like it would be good for invitations.

I used 80lb stock but it was part of an Envelopments package, so the backing made it feel more substantial.  Be careful with buying paper that’s too thick; your printer may not be able to handle it.

120lb is pretty thick for cardstock, I can’t imagine going any thicker than that for an invitation.

You might want to double check with the store you received it from. anything from 88lb-120lb should work perfectly. They might have given you text weight my mistake. There is a huge difference between 80lb cover and 80lb text.

I used 150lb cardstock and it is stunning. The inner cards are on 110lb recyled stock so it has a nice texture as well as weight. I put up a post about this – check it out if you need more info
