I will hold a dinner party at my house on April 1st, 2008 to celebrate Mr. Guo Jing's marriage with Miss Huang Hong. As you are a close friend of ours, we would very much like you to participate in the celebration and share our joy.
The occasion will start at seven o'clock in the evening, with the showing of their wedding ceremony. This will be followed by a dinner party. At around ten, we will hold a small musical soiree(晚会), at which a band will perform some works by Bach and Strauss.
