I personally am not inviting even very close friends who I’ve lost touch with– we are also trying to have a 75 person wedding. But since you invited her, I would have accepted her offer to come for drinks and dancing.  If you feel comfortable doing so, I would send her a nice message saying that you apologise for the prior conversation, that the wedding planning is very stressful and that you’d love to see her for drinks and dancing.  The way you react to her bringing a date and having a “date night” indicates there may be some deeper dissatisfaction with your friendship past losing touch with each other.  I doubt that she said she’d come so that she could get free drinks and get to know a new guy.  If I had just split with my husband and was going to a wedding that had offered me a +1, I would bring a date so that I wouldn’t feel so newly divorced at a friend’s wedding.  Although very very very annoying, missing the RSVP date may have also had to do with her crumbling marriage.
