Have you already been invited?  If so the correct answer is:  "I am invited to the (a) party tomorrow."
 
If you think that in the future it īs possible, then use the first sentence: "I will be invited to the (a) party tomorrow."

Both of sentences are correct.
Let īs find the difference between two expressions for the future " will " and " be +V_ing"

It depends on what you want the sentence to mean. 
 
I will be invited to a party tomorrow.
This means that there is a party with an unknown date.  Tomorrow, I will be invited to this party.
 
 
I am invited to the party tomorrow.
There is a party the next day.  I am already invited.
 
"will be" something that is going to happen
"am" present state of being

.....and don īt forget "going to" for future meaning + present continuous for future arrangements:
 
  • She īs going to get married in the spring.
  • We īre going to have a party next week.

  • I īm meeting friends for lunch tomorrow.
  • We īre leaving for Paris on Sunday.
