When I first started using weddingbee I would see a whole bunch of abbreviations and had no idea what they stood for and really had to think about some of them…
Here are some that come to mind:
Bridesmaid or Best Man – bridesmaid
Maid/Matron of Honor – maid of honor
STD – save the dates
FIL/MIL – father/mother in law
I once used S&M for Sottero and Midgley and got some amusing comments…
What are some that you have run into that really got you guessing??

I think this is the biggest list by Mrs. Penguin!
The abbreviations that always confuse me are non-wedding related ones like for the win (FTW).

I always wondered what ETA meant. I always thought it meant estimated time of arrival but the way some bees use it, they actually mean edited to add.

I am so glad you posted this link. I wish I could have seen this earlier without having to guess some of these.
WB – wedding band got me thinking for a while
so did Not Wedding Related which once I saw the non-wedding related boards tab, I finally figured it out!!

Yes, it has taken me a while to catch on just by seeing the abbreviations in context.
A couple of others are:
SO: Significant other
Destination Wedding: Destination wedding

I always posted FH as in “future husband” but most use FI???
I also say Future Mother-In-Law or Future Father-In-Law or FIL’s depending on the situation…

@future mrs kirsch – I also prefer FH to Fiance.
Post # 11
I think people post Fiance because it means fiance.
