Your friend is getting married and he has invited you to his wedding. However, you can’t make it for a certain reason. Now write a letter to explain why.
Dear Steve and Monica,
Thank you very much for the invitation to your wedding. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend.
The reason, I’m pleased to say, is that Wendy is pregnant and the baby is due more or less on the day of your wedding! Although she said it’d be all right for me to come over alone, I feel it’s the least I could do as husband, that is, to be by her side and to take of care her after the baby arrives.
We’re both hoping it’ll be a girl and plan to name her Margaret, after her grandmother. But if it’s a boy, we plan to name him Fredrick. No particular reason except that we both like the name.
Anyway, I would like to wish you both a long and happy life together and hope to come to see you as soon as Wendy is well enough.
Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to send us some photographs.
Cheers for now,
Ken and Wendy
