An invitation letter is generally a document that is written to invite guests and notify them with the help of a formal request in the form of an invitation letter. The invitation letter is written generally by the host of the event or the one who is organizing it because it is the duty of the host to notify all the guests.

The invitation letter can be sent via e-mail or it can be sent by printing it on paper and distributing among the guests.

A very nicely given invitation letter is always more appealing rather than the regular official type letter. But we need to be careful in the use of colours which needs to be done so as to even look more presentable. One should be creative while making a good invitation letter. For example, one can use a more decorative font or also a different shape of the invite can also be used.

The format of the email letter is also similar to the one we use for normal invitation letter. Here we start with Dear sir or Dear ma’am or Dear (name of the invitee). Then we have the body of the email letter where all the details are present and also the details of what the invitation is for are present. After the body is complete we need to specify whether there is any dress code for the party of not and there is the number of the host so that the person to whom the letter is sent can contact the host for information.
