You can make your programs with whatever type of paper you want. I am doing ours with the same paper as our save-the-dates and invitations, but some people don’t even do programs.

I’m using cardstock to print them on… you can get pretty cheap white cardstock from Hobby Lobby

That’s what I’m using for most ALL of our paper. I’ll take my flash drive and paper up to a local printer (in my case the college b/c it’s uber cheap) and let them do the printing for me =)

I’m using cardstock for the cover and regular paper on the inside. That might be a good compromise for you?

catholicbrides.com (I think?) has awesome programs, but they’re like 3.50 each! I’m planning on doing either all cardstock or all paper. I do think it’s nicer when there’s a stiffer exterior…

Here’s a DIY for a booklet program with a TEMPLATE… I’m sure you could change the paper size/margin settings…

And I think in a booklet case I would do like a cardstock cover/back and then the rest just regular paper… =)

You can totally find nice paper for programs that is affordable.  It sounds like you’re going to make a multi page boklet, so depending on how many programs you make, that could require quite a bit of paper.  I’d purchase a ream of paper or cardstock.  Paper reams are 500 sheets, cardstock reams are 250 sheets.  Check out bulk paper stores like Kelly Paper, Xpedx, and even office stores or Kinko’s.  You can find nice paper in any number of colors, and if you want whites/offwhites, you’ll have lots of textures to choose from, too.  Most reams of paper cost around $20, while carstocks are in the $30-$40 range.  I’m sure you can create something really great, while still sticking to you budget.  Good luck!
