it may be worth going to a local copy place, or even staples/ office depot- they have some catalogs of different binding options (so it’s not looking like a corporate document!) to see some different options before you go totally DIY. Hope that helps!

sewing them will hold.. look up info on non-adhesive book binding online
also– you may want to consider using different weights of paper because of postal costs and if you used a thin and heavy, a ribbon may very well work for you.
mockups are your friends!

I would be tempted to punch holes (2, 3, 4… depending on the length of the invitation) and use ribbon.  Do you know a blanket stitch?  You can look it up online, I’m sure.  It doubles back along the stitching line, and can also loop over the outside edge.  Therefore it holds pretty securely even it the stitching is not tight.  It seems that you’re going to need something secure, since your papers are heavy, but of course you also need something that still allows the "booklet" to be opened.  I would definately experiment with one before you print them all.

If it doesn’t work out, you could consider doing a pocketfold that opens like a book.  The invitation can be attached to one side of the pocketfold, and the various other cards arranged in the pocket on the other side.  Look at http://www.tgkdesigns.com, the Audrey, to see an example.

Following up on suzanno’s comment above, we (The Green Kangaroo) just started selling some of our pockets online.

So it might not be a "book" per se, but maybe it will help. 🙂
