Thanks so much for inviting me to your wedding! I got the invitation in the mail today.
To be honest, I was a bit surprised to hear that you decided to get married so soon. I figured you would wait for a while until you got settled into your new job a bit more. How is that going by the way? We all miss you here at the office, but we’re happy that you’re climbing the corporate ladder! Next stop, CEO, eh?
I’m sorry to say that I won’t be able to attend your wedding because I booked my vacation right over those dates. Cindy and I are going to Thailand. We’re really excited about the trip. Actually, I’m thinking about proposing on the trip! (Don’t let the cat out of the bag!)
We’re flying to Bangkok on August 5th. It’s gonna be a long trip since we have a 9-hour layover in Tokyo, but it will all be worth it when we get to our beach resort. We’re spending two days in Bangkok, then flying to Koh Samui. Cindy has never been to Asia before, so I thought it would be good for her to experience a large Asian city for a few days. We’ll be in Koh Samui for a week before flying home. Neither of us have taken a proper vacation in over two years, so it’ll be nice to unwind for a while.
I hope you capture some footage of your wedding so that I can watch it after we get back! I’m really excited for you guys. I’ll have to keep my eyes open in Bangkok for a belated wedding gift. I picked up an awesome painting from a street artist last time I was in Thailand. Do you have any space on your wall for some artwork?
Anyway, I really hope you guys have a great day, and I’m sorry again that I won’t be able to make it. Cindy and I will definitely have you guys over for supper when we get back. By the way, have you decided on a honeymoon spot yet? Let me know if you need any advice on good resorts. I have a lot of experience with resorts! Also, my brother is a travel agent and might be able to get you guys a good deal.
Alright, I’ll sign off for now.
All the best,
