It is inconvenient I know, but you're going to have to do one of two things.

One is limit all drinks like 2-3 hours before bedtime.

Two is wake her up 1-2 times a night to use the bathroom. It will start to become habit after that.

Gotcha you. Should we do pull ups or just let her go with out?

Pull ups are the WORST for potty training because they mimic actual diapers, which allow children to think it is okay to pee in them.

Never, ever use pull ups.

Okay. I see a ton of washing in my future.

There are many children who aren't potty trained at night, they sleep deep and don't wake up. Talk to her pedatrician about it and make sure you have  a waterproof mattress protector on her bed.

I wet the bed until I was like 10 :/

It was so freaking embarrassing and I hated it! As an adult, I've researched it and learned that chronic constipation can cause this. I was never aware of being constipated. I went. But the theory is, some kids aren't emptying completely. Try adding fiber or a gentle laxative. And wake her just before you go to bed to try to use the toilet again. I used to put my then-4-year-old on the toilet this way if he'd gone to bed super early or something. He basically went in his sleep.

Use the good nights. Last year my 4 year old wore them at night. I started limiting her drink in take. She nows wears panties to bed and has had 1 accident

My son had a lot of success using the Goodnite brand. It is "actual underwear" but you buy disposable liners for it so if he does pee at night you just toss out the liner.

My 9 yo dd still isn't dry at night. Don't beat yourself up about it. Some kids just take longer. My dd has been to the doctor and tested and there is nothing physically wrong. We have bedwetting on both sides of the family.
