I think you should only send cards to people who gave you things or helped out in some way.  By feeding everyone at the reception, you are already thanking them for coming to the wedding.

There has been much debate about this on WB lately. I’m in the camp of not sending thank you’s to those who didn’t give at least a card. My logic on this is that I will have thanked them in person for attending at the wedding so I’ll have covered that base already. Many people think you should send to everyone, though. It’s up to you. If you want to be super nice about it and it doesn’t bother you sending them then do it.

Well, Emily Post says you should send a note to people within 3 months of reciept of gift. I think that would imply that you send notes to people who gave you a gift.

yeah, thank you notes just for gifts received  (although keep in mind “gifts” are not necessarily tangible objects, it could be any help with the wedding you get from friends/family…it would be nice to thank them too)
