How to....

How do you refuse an invitation?

  • I’m sorry, I have a previous engagement. (or) I’m sorry, I have another appointment.
  • I’m so sorry, but I can’t. I’m rather tied up all of this week.
  • I’m sorry! I’m booked all week with the conference. Why don’t we go out sometime after the 15th? (or) Why don’t we go sometime in the week after next?
  • Sorry, I can’t make it. How about another time?
  • I can’t this evening. But I can join you another day. How about….?
  • I’m sorry I can’t go tomorrow. But would next week work for you instead? (or) Would Sunday work for you instead?
  • I wouldn’t be able to make it this time. But I’d love to join you another time (or) I’d love to join you next time.
  • That would be wonderful, but I’m out of town. How about…..?
  • Sorry, I wouldn’t be able to make it this time. But thanks for inviting me. That was very kind of you.
