We are into the wedding program stage, and after much looking online at the different styles and whatnot, we decided to go with a standard, classic wedding booklet. We may do a cardstock cover or we may go with all paper.
But, for the actual paper portion of the program, what would be the best type/thickness of paper to use? I am afraid standard cardstock may be too thick and regular paper too thin. We have 24 lb business paper at work that looks like it may look good, but is still kind of on the thinner side.
What would you guys recommend? Here is our inspiration piece:

I used 28 lb Neenah Classic Crest text paper for the inside of our programs. I ran out of the cardstock I wanted to use and didn’t have time to get more. It worked but I wish I had used something heavier. I printed on both sides of the paper, and you could see the text through the page. Go with the heaviest weight text paper you can find or a light cardstock.

I would use a resume weight paper that is textured – like a linen or parchment style perhaps. Something made with cotton. Like this

We used 90 lb cardstock on the outside, and 24 lb linen resume/letterhead paper for the inside. We printed on both sides of the linen paper and it turned out beautifully.

It’s hard to find non-watermarked paper. I ordered some 65 lb cardstock, but it was still too thick. And the 24 lb resume paper is see-through.
This is quite frustrating

This site has a lot of wedding program paper. The paper is 26# wait, That’s not card stock but is thicker than regular paper and fits in your laser printer just fine. http://www.weddingboutique.us
