Since I joined the hive several months ago, I’ve made educated guesses about the acronyms used in posts. I think I’ve figured them all out, but sometimes I wonder if I’m using them incorrectly.
Fiance = fiance (that’s an easy one)
Darling Husband = dear husband (not too sure about this one)
SO = significant other
Mother-In-Law = mother in law (M can be replaced with F, S, B for other in laws)
Future Mother-In-Law = future mother in law
Bridesmaid or Best Man = bridesmaid
Maid/Matron of Honor = maid/matron of honor
Groomsmen = groomsman
Bridesmaid or Best Man = best man (would need context to distinguish from Bridesmaid or Best Man for bridesmaid)
Are these all correct? Any others?
Another random question: what’s the difference between the Weddingbee board and the Beehive board?

@Ms. Figales: The Weddingbee board is for any discussion related to this site. The Beehive board is for any general wedding related discussion that doesn’t fit into another category. The Lounge is for any general non-wedding related discussion! 🙂

ETA – Edit(ted) to add. It took me ages to figure that one out!

@Ms. Figales: You got ’em right! : ) We should probably also add “FH” for future husband (aka fiance). A couple others:
In My Humble Opinion: In My Humble Opinion, Not Wedding Related: Non-Wedding Related & of course BF/GF: Boyfriend/Girlfriend, for our waiting ladies!
@Blueshoes2: Thanks! I knew the difference between the Weddingbee board & Beehive/The Lounge, but I never knew the difference between those two! : ) Of course, now there’s a totally separate board for Not Wedding Related discussions, isn’t there?

@Mrs.MedinaJr: That’s the same one I had trouble figuring out. But now I know. Thanks Ms. Figales! 🙂

@Jenniphyr: The Not Wedding Related section just filters all of the non-wedding related boards (other than the babies, pets, newlyweds, and home boards – which can be found under Nesting). Not Wedding Related is also where you’ll find The Lounge 🙂 Hope that made sense!

hahahaha I had so many of these wrong at first. When I first joined I had made up all of these crazy meanings for all the acronyms. When I found out what they all really meant I felt so stupid because it’s like they were all so obvious!

Hahaha, it took me the longest time to figure out that OOT= out of town, and that TTC= trying to concieve.
