I was just trying to fill out the forms that the florist sent us and on it I am asked who I want corsages for (MOB, MOG, Etc.) Among all of the regular choices (between MOG and Grandmother) there is a space that says SOB…Does anyone know what this abbreviation stands for?
I can’t seem to find it on any of the common wedding websites that I have checked and I live across the world from my florist so getting in contact with her right away is difficult.

I would have thought sister of bride?

Not sure where you’re from or where they’re from but my version of SOB is nit something I would call a family member…

@JenGirl: That’s what my FI suggested when I asked him what a SOB was haha

My version of SOB is “shortness of breath”. In wedding talk… probably Sister of the Bride?

Well, son doesn’t make sense, because you wouldn’t want a corsage for your son. It’s got to be stepmother or sister–do you have a sister who’s not a bridesmaid? Or a stepmother? If you don’t have either, you can just say no, lol.

My guess is sister of bride. I do see SMOB used on these boards sometimes as an abbreviation for stepmother of bride. Or maybe it’s an all inclusive term for both.

@DanceAwayDarling: I almost put “shortness of breath” before I even read your post. Glad I didn’t. I suppose you, too, work in a hospital? haha. But I’d assume sister of bride.

@DanceAwayDarling: SOB to me means shortness of breath ( yup im a nurse) or son of a lady dog. But in this context its got to be stepmother surely? I’d make the assumption that if you’d got a sister chances are she’d be a BM. Why not call and ask?

I would say stepmother of bride because it’s listed between mother and grandmother.
