I'm wondering if you all could help me with an issue I'm having, because I honestly don't know what to do.
Today, I went to lunch with my best friend. She told me that she is in one of her friend's wedding but that there was some drama. Apparently, the maid of honor brought up some concerns about the groom-to-be. The bride-to-be got really mad and was going to take the maid of honor out of the wedding completely. So the bride-to-be asks my best friend to go talk to the maid of honor about the whole issue. My friend did and then relayed the talk to the bride over the phone. The talk happened on Tuesday and the bride hasn't said anything to the maid of honor.
So I guess my point is that I think my best friend is being used and taken advantage of. She is basically being a mouthpiece for the bride and the bride isn't doing anything to remedy the situation. I really don't want my friend to get hurt if things escalate from here. Do you think I should tell her my concerns or just let it go?
Any advice is much appreciated

If it were me, I would definitely talk to my friend and let her know in a nice kind of way just to be careful. I would just tell her to becareful not to get in the middle, if the bride has an issue with her maid of honor, she should speak to her directly. Your friend getting in the middle can be messy, she wouldn't want either of them thinking she is taking a side. So yes, I would talk to my friend about it.
Yes, Id talk to her about my concerns for her in this obvious drama that she's being pulled into.
And Id beg her to not do relaying again between them if asked but to say she's out of the issue and they should talk to one another.
