    Default Without being/having been invited

    Hi,
    "We went to the party without being/having been invited."
    Which is correct please, or can I use both?
    Thank you.

    You can use both of them.

    If you want to avoid such doubts, you can also say "we went to the party uninvited".

    Or "We gatecrashed the party"!
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
