Yes, people who know about these things really do call or write after a social event, including a wedding to thank the host. Obviously not everyone is aware, but it’s actually a pretty commonly done thing in my experience, not outdated.

Lots of people have it backwards and think they should be thanking guests for attendance only.

Send a thank-you after the dinner, not before. Since she didn’t attend the wedding or send a gift of any kind, a thank-you would be strange.
