    have you together

    It would be my privilege and pleasure to have you together as our Esteemed guest during the swearing-in-ceremony.

    Is it correct to say"" have you together" in this context? Shouldn't it just be "have you as"?

    Re: have you together

    If you are speaking to one person, then 'together' is wrong.

    I you are speaking to a couple, then you need 'esteemed guests'.

    Yes, the invitation is addressed to one person.

    Re: have you together

    In that case, you simply need to say "It would be our pleasure to have you as our esteemed guest at the swearing-in ceremony".

    Note that there is no need to capitalise "esteemed".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
