Yup, like most wedding planning newbies, I felt completely appalled that people talked about STDs so openingly. Seriously wedding planning fools? Sexually transmitted diseases?
heehee.. and a little bit of googling later, I discovered that bloggers themselves were not the fools, rather I just needed some more needed lessons on wedding blogging terminology. Talk about a learning curve and feeling like I were studying for the SATs again.
The wedding world is full of jargon jargon jargon. The wedding acronyms make blogging and forum discussions easier on the typing fingers (and in my head… less prone to carpel tunnel 😉
Let’s have a little lesson shall we? Here are some of the common one’s that I tend to use and see.
BM: Bridesmaid or sometimes (but rarely) Best Man
DH: Dear Husband (usually refers to just husband though)
DIY: Do it yourself
FBIL: Future brother in law
FFIL: Future Father in Law
FIL: Future In Laws
FMIL: Future Mother in Law
FSIL: Future Sister in Law
MOB: Mother of the Bride
MOH: Maid of Honor
MFI: Future Mother in Law
OOT: Out of town
RD: Rehearsal dinner
STD: Save the Date
What other acronyms do you use regularly?
