Dear [Recipients Name],

I was surprised, but thrilled when I got your invitation, and I couldn't be happier for you and [groom's name]. I can also imagine how excited your mom and dad are about the event.

Thank you for remembering me on your special day despite the fact that it's been a while since we last saw each other.

I expect that you will be so busy on that day, but nevertheless, we'll see each other at [name of church or location of event].
