I am completely new to this site so forgive me, I’m not quite used to the lingo or where posts go (like this one)! I got engaged May 11th of this year and have been looking at every wedding site imaginable!!!! I have been dreaming of my wedding since who knows when and am pretty excited to plan it!
My fiance and I dont plan on getting married until May 2013 but I love all the DIY and fantastic ideas this site has offered me since I found it. Looks like all you ladies (and some gents I see) are a great crowd for advice, support and great ideas!
I was wondering if anyone could give me a link to a post about the lingo used (some I get others I’m like ???) and any other advice or cool findings on here for a new bee like me =]
I’m really excited to get to know you guys and hope I can contribute as well!

Welcome to the hive! Congrats on your engagement! I don’t have a link to the lingo around here, but if you have a question about something, just ask. I know some things like:
FI-FianceFH-Future HusbandSTD-Save the Dateepics-engagement photosering-engagement ringAm I’m sure there are others that I use that I can’t think of right now. lol
Since you are new, why don’t you head over to the proposals section and tell us your story. Then you can post a photo of your new bling in rings. There is also the date twins boards where you can interact with ladies who are getting married in the same month or day as you.
You can also filter the boards by clicking Wedding Related on the top. That will get rid of all the Not Wedding Related (non wedding related) nesting and local boards.
ETA: I stand corrected. lol There is a Wiki page for lingo!

Welcome to Weddingbee! Congrats on your engagement! It’s never too early to start your DIY projects!!! Here’s a link to our Weddingbee Wiki and a few good places to start: Abbreviations, info about the boards, and info about our hostesses if you need us! There’s also an awesome thread called “How-do-I” that will likely answer most of your questions!
