    Your best bet is to go to an office supply store or an art supply store and feel different papers with their weight. Watercolor paper comes in a variety of weights, as does resume paper.

    I am using 110# card stock pocketfolds, and 105# card stock for everything else. I prefer the weight of the heavier papers. πŸ™‚

    I used 80# – I would have gone higher but not lower.  I think 65 is a bit low, as I think thicker ones feel fancier but it’s up to you… go check out both weights in person.

    I used cardstock for my main invite and all inserts, and text paper for the mat. Consider that if you have a lot of inserts, it will be pretty heavy to use all cardstock (heavier paper = more postage).
