    I know you are stressed and probably typing really fast but it is a little difficult to understand the story or the context of what you are asking without a bit more detail. The first part is fine, it is the second part about your email that I am having trouble following.

    @plantains: I thought I was the only one.

    I am a little confused with what your asking as well. 🙂

    I am guessing that you sent this:    

    Is there still tension there or am I just sleep deprived and worried about nothing?

    to Bridesmaid or Best Man #3 asking if LocalBM still felt there was tension. 

    I am guessing that LocalBM or EastCoast Bridesmaid or Best Man found out about the question asked to Bridesmaid or Best Man #3 and is upset about it. 

     

    If that is the situation then I think they might be over reacting.

    I get what you are saying. It doesn’t sound like you were trying to be “high school” at all here or going behind anyone’s back. It just seemed like you were trying to mediate a situaiton between two members of the bridal party. However, it doesn’t necessarilyi seem like anyone is in the wrong here. ECBM was worried that her dress wouldn’t fit, and LocalBM was trying to be on top of the ordering. When it comes down to it however, I would just explain to the Bridesmaid or Best Man (who thinks you went behind her back) your reasoning for sending the email to another Bridesmaid or Best Man. Just tell her you didn’t mean it to be back-stabbing or anything like that, but that you were just trying to fully understand the situation. Sounds like these girls are being pretty immature, and if someone is going to threaten to drop out of your wedding over something like this, then that is just silly. Sorry you are going through this! Hope it works out 🙂

    Oh wait!! After looking at the poll, you are asking if you should send the Bridesmaid or Best Man that message? Right?

    If that is the question, I would let sleeping dogs lie, and don’t mention anything. Or, if you really want to ask, I wouldn’t do it in an email, I would wait to talk to her over the phone or face to face.

    From what I read, there was some intitial tension between 2 BMs that you apologized to each of them on behalf of the other for…that was concerning the dresses. So after this I am assuming that the local Bridesmaid or Best Man sent out an e-mail that could possible be seen as snarky for lack of a better word. So you asked another Bridesmaid or Best Man if the original tension between the local and east coast BMs was still there.Local Bridesmaid or Best Man found out you asked and got upset with you.

    IF I got all of that right, I think that you should have just asked local Bridesmaid or Best Man if the tension was still there instead of asking another Bridesmaid or Best Man who may or may not have been aware that there WAS tension. Even though you meant well, you WERE talking about her behind her back. I voted for option 2.

    Why did the Bridesmaid or Best Man that you emailed tell LocalBM about your email? That’s what I don’t understand. I don’t think you were talking about her behind her back personally, you were trying to get some info, not saying something bad about her. I would have done the same to you because if you asked LocalBM directly, she likely would have gotten mad and it would have started a whole new level of drama. It seems like you were just trying to find out the situation so you asked a 3rd party who you thought could give you an opinion without causing more drama. If I were you, I’d be pissed at the 3rd Bridesmaid or Best Man that you emailed.
