    Invitation query

    Hey there..
    Thank u for the response.
    Here is the full sentence - I cordially invite your esteemed presence with family to ..
    My doubt is if the usage is correct? Or can u only invite a person?

    Re: Invitation query

    The usual way to say this formally would be

    The pleasure of your company is requested at [name of event].

    OR

    Mr and Mrs xxxxx request the pleasure of your company at the [name of the event]

    More informally, it could be

    I would like to invite you to join the family in order to [whatever it is - for instance: celebrate the wedding of our [son/daughter, name,]]

    Yes..thank u ...
    The trouble is the cards have been printed and the words used are :
    Cordially invite your esteemed presence with family on the auspicious occasion of the marriage of our daughter:
    I wanted to know if the entire sentence was wrong.
    I did some grammar checks online..that seemed fine...

    It is not how we would phrase it here, but it is fine.

    Next time - it might be better to ask before you give the order to the printers!

    OH!!! I can't say how glad I am to hear that!!
    Didn't muse too much over it earlier..saw the words on many other cards and went along with it..was havin a panic attack now..
    So as long as the sentence isn't wrong-wrong...

    So it IS ok to invite one's presence. Was happy when I found this : invite - Wiktionary .. had to confirm though..
    Thanks a lot for your help!!
