Some of them I’m still lost on…. Future Mother-In-Law, future mother in law, STD, Save the Date, Fiance, Fiance?  I’m sure someone else can help you out with some others, I’m not sure.

Which are giving you problems?

SIL – sister in law, Future Sister-In-Law – future sister in law, same thing for a brother in law but with a B

Darling Husband – dear husband

e-ring – engagment ring

Rehearsal Dinner – rehearsal dinner

SO – significant other

BF/GF – boyfriend/ girlfriend

FI=future intended

DH=darling/dear husband

MIL=Mother in law

FIL=Father in law

SIL=Sister in law

BIL=Brother in Law

*Adding an F to anything pretty much always means “future” ex FMIL=Future Mother-In-Law

Ering=engagement ring

MOH=Maid of Honor

FI=Future Intended

SO=Significant other

STD=Save the Date

TTC=Trying to Conceive

Any others?

I don’t get Fiance.  I guess it’s okay if I consider it “Fiance” but the “Future Intended” interpretation is just a grammatical clusterf*** and I’ll get angry if I start to grammar-nazi about it.  Most of the other sites I’ve been on use FH for “Future Husband” instead.  I never saw Fiance before coming here.  Long story short, it bugs me.  I refuse to use any of the abbreviations – ever – ANYWHERE – because of it.  Everyone should switch.

@NYE Gal:

Yeah I thought it was just short for FIance but finally figured out it was short for Future Intended (which actually made more sense because all the other abbreviations were the first letter of multiple words…not the first two letters of words. ex husband was not HU)
