Please help me. I am always confused when I use the noun invitation or verb invite
It is my invitation to / for the wedding.
We hereby invite you to /for the party
Of late I have come across even invite as a noun as in
Its my invite to/for the wedding
Re: Invitation to/for
It's my invitation to the wedding. But this sounds strange. If you're pointing to the invitation you'd say "This is my invitation to the wedding".

Invite is an informal way of saying invitation.
invite - definition. American English definition of invite by Macmillan Dictionary
It's also used online to refer to invitations to various sites, communities, etc. In this context you use invite but not invitation.
