hosting a dinner party can involve a lot of preparation, depending on how many people it is for and how elaborate the proceedings will be. one of the first jobs of hosting a dinner is to write the invitations for each of your guests. these invitations should contain all the important information about the dinner party that your guests need to know. how formal your invitation is ultimately depends on the type of dinner party you intend on having.
一封完整的邀请函要包括晚会的所有重要信息，包括时间、地点、人员、着装要求(有些晚会主人会确定dressing code，通常是一个主题元素，比如polka dots波点，大家的`身上都要有一个波点的元素)。邀请函要多正式是根据晚会的正式程度定的。下面就向大家介绍写作晚会邀请函的步骤。
1 state the request and the purpose of the dinner in your first line. for example, james and natalie invite you to join them for dinner to celebrate their first wedding anniversary. a more formal invitation might read, mr and mrs smith request the pleasure of your company at a dinner to celebrate their first wedding anniversary.
2 write the date and time that the dinner party will be held. for example, tuesday, 5th july 20xx, 7:30 p.m.
3 inform your guests where the dinner is taking place. for example, at home, or at two chefs restaurant. be sure to include the address of the venue.
4 provide details concerning the dress code. black tie or smart casual are typical dinner party choices.
5 place an rsvp at the base of the invitation with contact details such as a phone number or email address. the rsvp requests that recipients inform you whether they will attend or not. with a more formal invitation, you can include a reply card and a self-addressed envelope for responses.
在邀请函下方附上回执。(rsvp是回执的意思，来自法语 rpondez sil vous pla t, 意思是 respond, if you please.)回执可以通过电话或者邮箱回复。回执是让对方告知你愿不愿意出席。更正式的回执通常会有一张卡片和一个用来答复的信封，方便客人回复。
