    I have to reply for a formal invitation. I prepare three different refuse answer but I do not know which will be the best for the really important event.


    first option

    Dear Mrs Alison Hope,

    Thank you very much for your invitation to your business dinner. I was very pleased to receive it. Unfortunately, I have already promised to attend to another meeting, so I will not be able to accept your invitation. Please accept my apologies.

    Yours sincerely,
