As a native English-speaker I would use

I've been invited to ...

I have been trying to think of why

I'm invited to ...

doesn't seem quite right; haven't come up with a good reason.

I would use

I was invited to ...

if the event was itself in the past or if I was invited but decided not to go.

The James' had a party last week and I was invited.

I was invited to the James' dinner party, but unfortunately I shall not be able to go as I am working in Manchester.
