Maybe far down the line she can forgive you. Let her make that determination when she is ready. Tell her, apologize and walk away. Let her rely on her real friends and her family to deal with the mess you and her fiance have made for her. 

My heart goes out to this young woman. I hope you find the courage to do the right thing.
