@RiverBride13:  You’re right on both of them! 

But I agree there are times where girls use an abbreviation and I spend 10 minutes or so just trying to figure it out. Like I didn’t know what IMO meant for the longest time until my mom told me it means In My Opinion.

I suggest staying away from the TTC (trying to conceive) boards, because I never understand any of hte posts due to the amount of abbrieviations!

I just guess around the ones I don’t know. 

SO: Significant other

Fiance: Future intended/Fiance

Darling Husband: Dear husband

DD/DS: dear daughter/son

STD: Save the Date

WB: Wedding Bee

Maid/Matron of Honor: Maid of honor

Bridesmaid or Best Man: Bridemaid although sometimes used as Best Man

Here is another useful TIP for abbreviations.

See something you aren’t familiar with… just GOOGLE it.  There are actually now on-line dictionaries that define Texting / Internet Chat Slang / Txtspk / SMS Language terms…

I find it the quickest way to figure something out when I am stumped.

Hope this helps,
