1. If I hadn't been in the country, I wouldn't have been able to attend your wedding tomorrow.
2. If I hadn't been in the country, I wouldn't be able to attend your wedding tomorrow.

Hi. The first is a type 3 condition and the second is a mixed 2/3 conditional. Can we call both of the two bold parts counterfactual (contrary to a future situation) so in terms of their counterfactuality there is no difference between 1 and 2?

Thank you.

No we cannot call both of the two bold parts contrary to a future situation.
