    @lambs379:  I think its ok to accept them as long as you send a heartfelt thank you note.

    oooh, I definitely think you should invite them if they got you an engagement present.  But maybe check with your parents to see what they think.

    If you invited them to an engagement party and they got you a gift, you really should invite them to the wedding. If they gave you a gift but weren’t invited to your engagement party (or if you didn’t have an engagement party), send a heartfelt thank you note for their generosity and don’t invite them to the wedding if you can’t afford it. Gifts shouldn’t come with strings attached, so assume that their gifts were sincere celebration of your engagement, not fishing for a wedding invite.

    @bluebelle23:  Sorry I disagree. We received lots of gifts from my parents friends and they are not invited. 

    OP, did you have an engagement party and that’s where you got the gifts? If so, then yes you need to invite them but if it was just an out of the blue present then just send a thank you note.

    @VAwife:  I agree.

    You can’t control what people choose to do, but if you had an engagement party and these people were invited to that you need to invite to wedding as well. If they just took it upon themselves to gift you then that was their choice.
