I think you need to be honest with her.  Tell her you’re hurt by her actions, and even though you’ve tried to understand where she’s coming from, you would have liked to hear all of her feelings from her.  It’s a tough situation, but you need to be the bigger person and confront her.

As for her wedding, I honestly probably wouldn’t go.  The accounting class sounds like a big deal, and if you can’t negotiate the time away, then you can’t make it.  It stinks, but it’s your career.  If your friend can’t understand that you’ll miss the wedding for something as important as developing your career and advancing yourself in your company, is she really the type of person you want in your corner? 

It may make your friendship take a turn for the worse if you don’t go.  But it sounds like she’s already set the course and it’s headed that way, anyway.  In the end, you have to be able to live with the decision of going or not going…

Just a suggestion here on your friend’s behalf…  She may not have asked you to be in her wedding party because of the way she flet being in yours but living so far away.

My best friend lives out of state while the rest of my BMs live near by.  I almost didn’t ask her to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man because of the distance but ended up letting her make the decision.

Talk to your friend!
