I always took it as shorthand for "fiance"… (first 2 letters)  Have I been wrong all this time?

hee hee – for ages I took it to mean Future Intended – lol – then I finally realized it was Fiance
I do like sweet baboo – maybe we could start using that just to really confuse everyone πŸ™‚

Maybe a sticky should be posted on the board with common acronyms.  I would love to hear the answer too πŸ™‚

FI=Future Intended
FH=Future Husband

Usually you refer to your own fiance as FI and someone else’s as FH.

MOB=Mother of the Bride
MOH=Maid of Honor
BM=Bridesmaid or Best Man (look at context)
GM=Groomsman
FMIL=Future Mother in Law
FFIL=Future Father in Law
BIL=Brother in Law
SIL=Sister in Law

If I’ve missed anything let me know!!

You know, the wedding world has a lot of weird abbreviations.

I can’t bring myself to use BM (it means something else in my world πŸ˜‰

or STD (also has another meaning in my world!)

Each and every time, I spell those words out….

I love calling them STDs  I think it’s hysterical πŸ™‚  My FI calls me his FI to other people, it’s really cute.

The only thing I can think of is Bachelor of Medicine. Seeing as it is coming from doctorgirl, it makes sense, but it isn’t dirty. Not sure what else it could mean.
