Alright, I’ve been reading Weddingbee for ages- even got engaged and married while reading it- and I have yet to figure out what Fiance means. I know it refers to your sweet baboo, but what the heck does it stand for?

I always took it as shorthand for "fiance"… (first 2 letters) Have I been wrong all this time?

hee hee – for ages I took it to mean Future Intended – lol – then I finally realized it was Fiance
I do like sweet baboo – maybe we could start using that just to really confuse everyone 🙂

Maybe a sticky should be posted on the board with common acronyms. I would love to hear the answer too 🙂

Usually you refer to your own fiance as Fiance and someone else’s as FH.
MOB=Mother of the Bride
MOH=Maid of Honor
BM=Bridesmaid or Best Man (look at context)
FMIL=Future Mother in Law
FFIL=Future Father in Law
BIL=Brother in Law
SIL=Sister in Law
If I’ve missed anything let me know!!

You know, the wedding world has a lot of weird abbreviations.
I can’t bring myself to use Bridesmaid or Best Man (it means something else in my world 😉
or STD (also has another meaning in my world!)
Each and every time, I spell those words out….

There’s actually a wiki entry that lists common abbreviations: http://wiki.weddingbee.com/Abbreviations.

STD=Save the Date

I love calling them STDs I think it’s hysterical 🙂 My Fiance calls me his Fiance to other people, it’s really cute.

I’m wondering the same thing! maybe my mind isn’t as dirty as others?? haha only joking!

The only thing I can think of is Bachelor of Medicine. Seeing as it is coming from doctorgirl, it makes sense, but it isn’t dirty. Not sure what else it could mean.
