Apology Letter for Not Attending Wedding

Sorry messages leave a good impact on people you have hurt in different ways. Not attending a close friends or relatives wedding can make the couple feel bad. Writing an apology letter for the couple can make them happy and also show that you care about their big day.

State your reasons for not attending the event. If the reasons were personal, it is better to explain rather than lying. Send warm wishes and blessings to the new couple. This will help you maintain your relationship with them. Apologize sincerely and try to make up for your absence.

Mention that you had the plan to attend the event and you were very excited for the wedding but due to some unforeseen reasons you could not make it to the wedding. Also, try to schedule a free time with the couple so that you can meet them and personally congratulate them.

Apology Letter for Not Attending Wedding

Dear [Recipient Name],

I was so happy to hear about your daughter’s wedding. It is so good to see her find the partner of her choice. Accept my heartfelt best wishes for the couple. I hope they live a happy and successful wedded life.

I had specially marked my calendar for the wedding. But soon before the wedding, I had to travel out of town for a business meeting. I did every possible effort to avoid it, but my manager would not let me miss this meeting. Please accept my apologies for my absence. I know I am very close to your heart and you felt my absence a lot. But if it was not a business meeting, I would have never missed this wedding.

The couple was in my prayers all the time. I am sure you will be feeling your daughter’s absence. I will see you as soon as I am back in town and share the wedding moments.

Truly yours,

[Your Name]
