What is the appropriate preposition to use with invitation, to or for? I have seen two books that used preposition to. Is it right and what is the explanation of using to instead of for?

I'd invite someone 'to'a place and'for' an activity. There's some grey area, like 'dinner', which could be seen as either. :mrgreen:

I mean for the word invitation.
Example:
I got an invitation (to/for) a party.
