Hi,
Invited, he'll attend the wedding.

Does this sentence mean "Since he is invited, he'll attend the wedding"?

Thank you so much.

    What is the source of this sentence? I've been seeing several grammatical, but impractical, sentences recently – this is another.

    I think it is a useless sentence, which means at the moment that I cannot think of a reason ever to use it, nor can I imagine ever seeing it.

    I suppose your interpretation is what is meant.

    Delighted, he accepted her invitation.
    Frustrated, he gave up trying to solve the math problem.
    Ecstatic, he called his parents to share the good news.

    I agree that one would be very unlikely to find the sentence provided in the OP in an authentic situation, but maybe it was created for the purpose of illustrating a grammar point.
