i wouldn’t refuse her gift, but i would probably send her a gift as well with a letter mentioning your guilt and thanking her for her friendship.

I would say “go ahead.”  You could always say, “You know X, I’ve always felt bad about missing your wedding. But now that I’m going through the planning process myself, I feel really horrible about it. I know I should have apologized a long time ago, but I wasn’t sure how. Anyway, I’d like you to know that I really appreciate your friendship and I was sorry I was so inconsiderate….”

She might not remember, but she will likely really appreciate it. And you’ll feel better. So it would be a win/win.

@Mrs.LemonDrop: is right on.  Thank her and let her know what’s been on your mind.  I’m sure she’ll appreciate it.
