It’s never too late to be polite. If you can’t get her address from another relative, ask her for it, and send the thank you note. You are going to need her address sooner or later anyway.

Well, your other option is don’t ask and don’t mail her a thank you card, which is more rude. 

It’s never too late to be gracious.  And if she’s not available or you feel awkward, ask anyone.  Surely someone in your family has your aunt’s address – your parents?  grandparents? other aunts and uncles?

It’s definitely not too late! I would see if you could find out via another family member and then ask her directly if that fails. My cousin never sent out thank you cards after her wedding, and my aunts and mom still bring it up lol.

Not too late, but also I’m one of those tacky trash people that think saying thanks over text is enough

Definitely not too late! And FYI on a trick for the future – if you don’t know someone’s address but you do know that they own their home (vs renting an apartment or house), you can look them up via the property appraiser/tax records (if you know what county they live in, at least). I used this trick for my wedding invite list before reaching out to relatives for addresses and it worked pretty well.
