Best Business Invitation Wording Examples


If you have a formal business event you will undoubtedly need to send professional business invitations – but it can sometimes be difficult to come up with just the right words to get people to your event. Some of the best business invitation wording examples are fairly simple. For example, it is always appropriate to use the phrase “the honor of your presence is requested” or “YOUR COMPANY requests the pleasure of your company,” as well as the ever-popular “you are cordially invited to ...” No matter your verbiage, remember to keep it simple and short but still communicate what is typically referred to as the “five Ws:” Who, what, where, when and why. The following tips will help you pen the perfect business invitation wording every time.

General tips

  • Keep the invitation simple. Plain fonts of a suitable size are preferable.
  • The title should be placed at the top of the invitation. It should be immediately evident what the purpose of the invitation is.
  • Centering the text is acceptable and even preferable at times.
  • Standard business invitations are no more than 14 lines.
