Sending invitation is very important for those planning to organize a party. It should be done early enough. Invitations can be issued in person, on the telephone or by written cards. Formal parties are often by cards, while informal ones may be verbal or by telephone. A complete invitation letter regardless of its form should include:
- the name of the host or hostess.
- the type of event.
- time and place of party.
- the name of the guest, etc.
An example could be the invitation to a birthday party:
You are cordially invited to my 15th birthday party. I promise you a lot of fun.
Place: N° 1 Via Roma.
Please be there,
Sincerely yours, Anita.
