Oh I thought you were talking about an actual paper weight… and I was wondering if that was a normal thing to buy for weddings (like napkins with your name on it). Honestly I’m not sure what the weight is because I gave my mom the duty of ordering invitations. You could go to a local stationary store and ask them what the standard is.

yes, 16pt is a finer lux type of paper, better than 110lb card stock.

We ended up using 110lb cardstock for our invitations that we got from Office Depot.  I maybe could have gone with something thicker, but these will all be inserts and for the main invite we used colored cardstock as backing.  Plus it’s just thick enough and cuts down on postage 🙂
