I’m sorry I had to bail on you, but I really had no other choice due to demands of my job. It would have been so much fun to go to the _________ with you. I wish I had the freedom to simply leave work at work but right now that’s not possible. When is your next free weekend so we can plan something?”

It sounds like you handled the situation well. You were apologetic, and they didn’t give you enough information on what was going on. The only thing you could have done differently is next time you have a big work project due don’t make plans with them. I know it’s hard to say no but your job is important, and they should be able to sympathize with that. Tell you Fiance that you’re sorry but you have to get your work project done.

Well, they were trying to surprise you, so I understand why they didn’t tell you about the event.  I would have gotten Fiance to find out details and had him give you a little more info.  IDK what I would say at this point though.
