As for the shower vs wedding thing, traditionally the bridesmaids/mothers invite you to the shower and the bride/groom invite you the wedding. Those who invited you to the shower might not have realized that you weren't invited to the wedding, which is unfortunate, but not an intended slight from the bride and groom.

I actually had most of my shower ones done before we left for the wedding and all my wedding ones done within 2 months, but then again we had a very small wedding. But I did have 2 showers.

I also went above and beyond for our wedding and did not feel I should have to then thank them for coming.
I did sent thank yous for anyone who gave us a card and/or gift.
It is very tacky of those brides who didn't send thank yous if you got them a gift.
Also its very sweet of you to say that you will get your thank yous out right away, and if you can you should, but sometimes things happen for people and its difficult to get them out, etiquette says that brides have 1 year from the wedding to get their thank yous out.
ps. I am moving this to the etiquette and to do's section. Please make sure you post in the most appropriate section.

ANYWAYS we sent thank you cards to everyone but keep in mind we had about 50 people at our DW in Mexico so it wasn't that difficult to write/mail 25 thank-you's (1 per couple). I think it is a small gesture that makes people feel happy and glad they did something nice for you either wedding or otherwise! Just my personal opinion....

FH's cousin got married last June and still hasn't sent a thank you card yet and it really bugs me. I think that it also bugs me because they sent out their invitations less than a month before their wedding and they had a big at home wedding. One of my BMs was getting married the exact same day and I had RSVP'd for her wedding months before but because FHs cousin was family I was still expected to go. I had to go to my friend's ceremony and the cousin's reception (FH's aunt was irked but I would not by any means miss my friend's whole wedding!!!).
