    Expressions (invitation)

    1. - Hello George. Don't think that I forgot to prepare you research (i.e. I didn't forgot I am working on it now)
    (a) Не думай, что я забыл ...
    2. I preferred to sent you an e-mail rather than calling you because I wanted to avoid putting you in the difficult position answering immediately to my invitation.
    3. I invite you to come in Cyprus during (this) winter.
    (a) приглашаю тебя приехать на Кипр зимой.
    4. I am inviting you to my wedding. I am willing to cover your residency, transportation, food expenses
    (a) I want to avoid to word "pay". Я покрою твои расходы транспортации, жилья
    5. I don't want immediate answer. Think about it.
    Чем больше слов, тем меньше они стоят.

    1.a - ok
    2. "...я не хотел поставить тебя в затруднительное положение, когда надо дать немедленный ответ.". However this sounds awkward.
    I think you should totally rephrase: "...я хотел чтобы у тебя было больше времени на обдумывание (моего предложения)".
    3.a - ok
    4.a. "Я покрою (твои) расходы на жильё, проезд и питание."
    5. Не отвечай сразу, подумай.
