SAMPLE-FORMAL INVITATION-LETTER FORMAT
Kamala Nehru School

Mr. K.J. Singh
District Commissioner of Police
Sub: Invitation‐‐‐Annual Day Function
It gives us immense pleasure to inform you that we are celebrating our school’s Annual Day function on 29 August, 2016 at 5.30 p.m. in the Activity Hall of the school. We shall consider it a great honour if you could grace the occasion and preside over the function as the Chief Guest and give away the prizes.
Replies are sent either accepting or declining the invitation in a letter format to the person who has invited the guest. While declining the invitation please state the reason.
INFORMAL INVITATION AND REPLIES
The following points are to be remembered while writing informal invitations.
• Written in a letter form, in informal format. Such letters are very persuasive in nature.
• Written in the first person.
• Salutation is ‘dear + name’.
• Complimentary close ‘yours sincerely’.
• Date of writing the invitation is given.
• The sender’s address appears on the left hand side.
• Various tenses used to suit the sense.
• Like an ordinary letter
• Do not use any formal expressions but use informal words and expressions
• Use the first person (I, We)
• State the reason if you are expressing your inability to attend
You are Mercy, a middle-aged housewife whose son has just cracked a tough engineering examination. You are extremely happy and have decided to organise a puja at your residence wherein you plan to invite all your friends. Write an invitation letter and two replies in response to it. One should show acceptance and the other refusal.
August 17, 2016
You will be glad to know that my son has secured the 49th rank in the All India Engineering Entrance Examination.
He has really done us proud and I plan to celebrate this occasion by organising a puja on Sunday which will be followed by dinner. I request you to come over along with your whole family.

A/7, Harding Road

I was delighted on reading about your son's achievement. It is indeed a remarkable feat. My family and I will surely attend the puja at your house on Sunday.
Refusal of Informal Invitation
I offer my heartiest congratulations to you on your son's success. We would have loved to attend the puja at your house but unfortunately we are leaving for Kodaikanal on Friday. We will return by the end of next week. I am extremely sorry but we will surely pay you a visit once we are back.
