How to write a romantic dinner invitation to your husband

Updated November 21, 2016

If you are planning a romantic dinner for two for you and your husband, you might want to write up an invitation. A sweet invitation will help your husband know that you have something really special planned. Here are a few things to keep in mind while writing that dinner invitation to your husband.

Customise a blank invitation. You can glue dried flower petals to the front, a photograph of you and your husband, or anything that indicates a romantic dinner plan.

Address the invitation to your husband. You can call him by his given name or any flirty nickname you have for him. For example, "Dearest Ken" can be just as intimate as "Dear Honeybee."

Inform your husband of the exact date and time he is expected to be at dinner, taking into consideration the demands of his schedule.

Tell your husband in the invitation where the dinner will be. If it will be at home, tell him when you will be expecting him. If it will be at a restaurant, indicate in the invitation whether you will be meeting him at the restaurant, or going home first so the two of you can ride together.

Add enticing messages to your invitation to let him know what he can expect. There is no need to be explicit or pornographic, but a flirty message about what he can look forward to at dinner will ensure that he shows up on time with flowers in hand.

Sign your invitation with either your name or whatever pet name he has for you. Be sure to sign with love, hugs and kisses.

Send your invitation to your husband. You can do this by leaving it on his pillow, taping it to the steering wheel of his car, or sending it to his office so he can think fondly all day of the time the two of you will spend alone together over dinner.

Tip

If the dinner will be at home, tell him in the invitation to knock first when he gets home so you can be sure you create the full effect before he walks in the door.

Seal it with a kiss.

Warning

Be specific. He is presumably not a mind reader, so be sure you add whatever details necessary to keep the romance alive and not be interrupted by bickering about logistics.
