我想不是这样的

We request the honour of your company at dinner.
"谨备便酌,敬请光临。"

request
AHD:[r¹-kwµst“]
D.J.:[ri6kwest]
K.K.:[r!6kwWst]
v.tr.
re.quest.ed; re.quest.ing; re.quests;
To express a desire for; ask for.
恳求表达对…的欲望;请求
To ask (a person) to do something.
要求要求(某人)做某事


这个也应该没问题。

I would like to remind you... You are requested to...

They are both bad, especially when talking to a senior level person.

I would like to remind you
This is often used in warning letter, e.g., I would like to remind you that your payment is overdue...

You are requested to reply
You are giving the person an order to reply!  This is different from the example coolmax used - request the honour of...

The most appropriate and the easiest way (depending on the centext) to say it would have been:
I look forward to receiving your reply soon
I would appreciate your early reply
This is a gentle reminder that...
As discussed, you will confirm xxx by way of a reply, therefore...
We need your reply before we can proceed further, your attention on this matter would be greatly appreciated

how to apologize

不要使用空洞华丽的词汇,那样会使对方觉得你没诚心

My suggestion:
...due to my poor English, I used some extremely inappropriate wordings...
... please accept my sincerest apology

再谈该怎么道歉好

对于因各种原因导致的商务或外事活动中重大失误,必须予以道歉,而道歉必须是正式的,(尤其是双方还未曾见面).商务和外交英语都有它们特定的要求和极其规范的语言,不是简简单单用“I’m  sorry”"I sincerely appologize for you"就可以的,而是应该用十分规范、正规和专业的语言。建议使用正规格式:
表示抱歉(冒昧做了某事)
To take the liberty of doing something; To take the liberty to do something; To take the liberty in doing something
甚感遗憾,请包涵
To regret; To be sorry; To be chagrined; To be mortified; To be vexed; To regret to say; To be sorry to say; To one's regret; To feel a great regret for; To express regret; To be regretted; To be a matter for regret; To be regrettable; To be deplorable.

Took the liberty...

我想用两个例子来说明这句话的用法

After reading your story in the newspaper, I took the liberty of sending you $100.

上面这句话带有一点表功、献殷勤的含义,绝对不是道歉。

I took the liberty of using some inappropriate laguage that offended you

这句话会产生火上加油的作用。

My suggestion:

Regrettably/unfortunately, due to my poor English, I ...

thanks, laoxianggg, tons of thanks to you

不说不知道,一说吓一跳。

我也会用I'm looking forward to your reply,但是万万没想到remind也不能用了。不知道我接受的教育是不是失败。
