I know I’m an idiot…but can someone please tell me what all the initials mean? I think I have a few figured out…SO: significant other, Future Mother-In-Law: future mother in law. The one’s I really don’t know are Fiance (I know WHO this refers to, just not what it actually stands for) and DH (dear husband?). Any insight would be appreciated 🙂

Fiance is “future intended” (i.e. fiance) and you are correct about DH. 😀

@little_cricket: Don’t worry…it took me a while to figure out the abbreviations as well. You are correct about the ones that you mentioned above! Here are a few others:
DH = Dear Husband
Fiance = Fiance’
Bridesmaid or Best Man = Bridesmaid
Maid/Matron of Honor = Maid/Matron of Honor
Groomsmen = Groomsmen
RB = Ring Bearer
Flower Girl = Flower Girl

The one that threw me was MOB. Why would a mob cares so much about running a wedding? Then I read another post and figured out it wasn’t a bunch of criminals but Mother of the bride. Boy did I feel dumb 🙂

It’s a way of commenting without actually saying anything in order to bring the thread back to the top of the first page in the boards. It gives the OP (original poster) an opportunity to get more answers to their question.

In addition to what @MrsMcGyro said, a bump can also be a way to comment on a thread you want to get back to (so it’ll save in your list of topics-replied-to, accessible through your profile).
