Bridal Shower Thank You's

My fiance's aunts threw a bridal shower for me and I am starting to write the Thank You's.  I wasn't introduced to everyone at the shower and I received gifts from a few people that did not attend, but am not sure who did not attend as the gift opening was just basically me opening them and then passing them around the room.. No announcing or anything.  I appreciate that everyone came, but there was such a large turnout and it felt somewhat rushed.  I started to mingle a bit, but before I had a chance to go around to everyone, they made me go sit at the table to start games, food and gifts.  Most left before I was even half way through the gifts and only a few came up as they were leaving to introduce themselves.

Anyway, my question is, how do I write thank you's without offending anyone?  I mean, do I just leave the thank you for coming off to make sure I do not put a thank you for coming accidentally in a note to someone who did not attend?  We have a guest book, but not everyone signed.  Should I just put the Thank you for coming in theirs?

Any advice?

    You don't need to thank people for attending, just thank them for the gift and let it be.

    Dear Aunt Janie,
    Thank you so much for the wonderful rice cooker.  As you know, jared and I just love asian cuisine, so you can be sure that it will be put to good use!  We appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity, and look forward to sharing our wedding day with us.

    Just thank them for the gift. As long as you know who got you what, you should be fine.

    Maybe you can ask the host of the shower to help you out. Just tell her you are starting to write the thank yous and want to make sure you got everyone right and get clarification on who all attended. 

     I think you should write a thank you for those who took the time to attend the shower. If your host can't remember who all attended or can't really help you just say something like "Thank you so much for thinking of us at this time in our life. We appreciate the (insert the speciic gift here), etc.
