drop me a PM with more info...dont have much time tonight, but should be free tomorrow

You CAN do it in Word, but much easier, if you have Ms Publisher or Powerpoint? Are you printing 2 inserts per a4 page, or is the insert a full a4 sheet (i suspect its 2 per a4 sheet!?)

you're still confusing me, and to get it right i need to not be confused. I can send you a copy of Publisher which will help you in the future.

so its a 4 sides of a5 size (but as a a4 sheet folded in half?)

They will look pretty tacky invites.....why not by some sheets of out-mean coloured card, some dried flowers that you can break down into small sprigs and a gold pen.

Or google "homemade wedding invites" for more inspirational ideas.

Hope I don't sound like I'm being nasty, But if you make something you are proud of, it will make it even more sentimental for you and your guests.

The order of service booklet should be fine on a heavy matching coloured paper with your design.

Having read the OP again, I'm not really sure whether she is intending you use just paper or stick paper to some card, it wasn't very clear....but your offer of a copy of MS publisher is the way to go as it's fairly easy to use.

You can get proper software depending on how "serious" you are, but Publisher will do the job (and does for me).
