The key to an invitation is to be brief but personal. Unless of course it is a general invitation to hundreds of individuals.
The point behind a formal invitation is to show the importance of the event. Just like a wedding or graduation where a formal invitation is sent even to the closest of family members.
This will make people feel important and adds a since of class to the event.
Take advantage of the event!
You may want to let people know what types of food and activities may be present especially if they are being provided by a well known chef or entertainer.
Remember this could be your one time to get that important future client in an environment where you have their attention and appreciation. But equally as important it must feel natural and not pushy. Nothing worse than being invited to a special function only to be strong armed the entire time by someone trying to sell you something. Therefore, choose fun over pressure.
Thank you and May God Bless You!
