80# cover should be fine when folded if you score it first (the edge can break a bit and look rough if not or if you fold it against the grain). 100# text is a text weight, and won’t be as heavy as a cover; it’s still pretty floppy. For reference, 20# or 24# text is standard text weight that goes in a printer. Anything that is a cover weight will be card stock.

No clue about how to list the BP; I haven’t gotten that far yet. 😉

Yeah, I don’t think the BP order matters unless you have a lot of attendees who are etiquette snobs.

80# cover is pretty standard for card stock projects (postcards, invites, etc.). 60# cover is pretty thin for a card stock, and 100# can be too thick (sometimes has a hard time going through ink jets).

If it helps, I listed the MOH and BestWoman separately and then my BMs in order they walk, and then the GM in the order they would walk, although they are walking in pairs. Then listed the flower girl and ring bearer. 🙂

Oh and I’m making a little booklet with 80#cover as the covers and 80#text for the pages (this way they front/back don’t bleed through)
