Reply for marriage invitation and doing good job research work.

My friend who is getting married soon, both Bride and Groom studied with me. We had some misunderstandings in those days because the boy was a close friend of mine before they fell in love. He cut off our friendship six years ago. He recently contacted me and sent me a wedding invitation through email. How do I send a reply for it?

Your Friend's Wedding

I am going to assume that your question is really about something else. Your question said that you wanted to know how to reply to the invitation. That question is easy. If you decide to go, then you would reply that you are going to attend. If not, then you would let them know that as well.

I think your question was more geared around whether you should attend the wedding or not based on the current state of the relationship because that seems like the bigger question.

Even though the relationship has been somewhat non-existent for the last six years, your friends thought enough of you to invite you to the wedding. That lets you know that you are important to them in spite of the situation.

I see this as an opportunity to repair a relationship and improve the friendship. If it were me, I would attend and use this event as a way to rekindle the relationship and put the last six years behind you.

I think this is a great opportunity to set things right. I hope it all works out for the best!
