What is an Invitation Email?
An Invitation email is a written electronic request for the presence of a person, group of persons or organization at an event. An invitation email is just like any invitation letter except that it is delivered to the invitee via email.
More and more people today are turning to emails as their preferred mode of formal written communication. They prefer emails because of the timely delivery and the fact that even the printed invitation letter can be scanned and forwarded via email.
Below are some sample Invitation Emails that will give you an idea of how to start your next invitation email. Should you decide to send individual mails to your invitees, then you can add some person touch to it. I don’t see a need for that though.
List of Sample Invitation Emails
- Business Meeting Invitation
- Conference Invitation

Sample Invitation E-mail for Baby Shower
Inviting guests for a Baby Shower can either be formal or informal. If the shower is being planned for someone within an official context, you may want to have some formal invitation letters. In general however, a simple email may do the trick. The advantage of an email is that it is easier to coordinate the RSVPs.
There are many online electronic invitation cards or e-vites that can be used to invite your guests to a Baby Shower. I suggest that you use one of those. If however for some reason, you believe that your guests would prefer a personalized email then find a sample invitation email below.

Sample Invitation Email to a Christmas Dinner at a Church
Inviting members of a church family via email does not really need to be formal. Sometimes a friendly email is all you need. For an invitation to dinner there are just a few components of the letter that are compulsory. You can always adapt the rest of the email to suit you need. For this letter to be formal, all you need to do is add the Formal Letter format and change the tone of the invitation.
This Christmas, as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we will love to bring His love and hope to people around us by sharing the love of God with them. This means that there will be a service at Christ Hope Church at 11am on Christmas Morning, immediately after which dinner will be served.
Through this we hope to share fellowship and love with those that have no family members around and at the same time teach our little children the act of giving at Christmas. We will need your help as we organize reaching our neighborhood in order to invite them for this joyful event.
Together we can share the heart of God, give hope and feast with those that Jesus would love to feast with.
