It’s always a pleasure to receive an invitation. After all, it shows that someone has remembered us and would value our presence at a significant event. Participating in the delight of young spouses or the birth of a baby is a beautiful experience. Alternatively, we may have been invited to a business conference, demonstrating that we are valued on a professional level.
However, not knowing how to respond to an invitation can often lead us into trouble; therefore, we’ve included a list of numerous notes you can use.
Is it appropriate to convey thanks for the invite?
“Thank you for the invite” is a casual greeting. It would be best to use the word ‘invitation’ in writing or informal speech (and personally, preferred): Thank you for inviting me. You can say ‘thanks for the invite, but…’ among friends in response to a casual ‘join us for a beverage’ kind of conversation.
Also, how do you thank someone for an invitation? Sample Sentences:
- Your response can be professional or casual, depending on the subject of the invitation. You may not need to include the date in your message if it is casual.
- If you respond before the event and plan to go, you can inform them precisely what you’re looking forward to.
