Wording to Decline an Invitation?

Answer

Wording used to decline an invitation to an event should be respectful and sincere. It is important to explain why the invitation is being declined but the explanation does not need to be specific. Simply using the words 'prior engagement' will suffice. Of course, if the prior engagement will strengthen the sincerity of the letter then mention it. Be sure be thankful for the invitation, mention that date of the event, mention the prior engagement, and pass along your well wishes, congratulations, or what have you.
