As for the guest not wanting to come to your shower empty handed, I would thank her for both gifts in one note when you send out your shower thank yous and then send her a Thanks For Coming note after the wedding and touch on her generosity again. 

As for your Great Aunt, maybe send her a note now saying thank you for the gift and that you’re so looking forward to using it after the wedding.  (My understanding is that you can open wedding presents received before the day but that you shouldn’t use them.)  After the wedding send her another note saying thank you for coming and repeat your thanks for her gift. 

All that said, I’m not Emily Post and all that up on the proper ettiquette.  I just know that it’s better to thank than to not.

You absolutely should open all wedding gifts that arrive prior to the wedding AND send a thank you note as soon as possible i.e. before the wedding.

For the guest who sent the shower gift and brought the wedding gift to the shower I would send two seperate notes as they are for two different occasions.

As for your Great Aunt can you have your mom call to ask her if the gift is for the wedding or for the shower? If you are uncomfortable with this just write a generic thank you and say how excited you are to see her at the wedding. If she gives you another gift for the wedding then send another note.
