Wedding breakfast. That’s what the 3 course wedding meal served well past breakfast time is called here in England. Wedding meal, dinner, supper, banquet would make a lot more sense to me!

@ItalianLady: That was the first thing that came to my mind too

I still don’t know what Darling Husband stands for Embarassed

Yeah, Save-The-Date Cards and BMs always make me laugh, because apparently I am twelve. Esp. when used in titles like, “I finally got STDs!” or “BM Trouble.”

I assume that “FH” is “future husband”, but what is FI?  I’ve gained by context that it indicates “fiance”, but is it just an abbreviation created by using the first two letters or does it actually stand for something?

It’s more of a concept than terminology, but all of a sudden its not “white”, it’s “ivory” or “oyster” or whatever. And this happens with all colours associated with a wedding – its not “green”, its “kelly apple green”

And suddenly, somehow, this is the most important distinction in the world. ????

And, just so you know, I’ve actually caught myself correcting people on this – one of my BM’s asked if I was getting a white dress and I automatically replied, “No, ivory.” You should have seen the look she gave me!! Disbelief mixed with equal parts crazy & WTF. Yeah. Haven’t done it again.

@ItalianLady: I refuse to abbreviate Save The Dates for that very reason! LOL!!!

I looked at invitations and was glad they added a little glossary for the 15 different items that apparently are part of a wedding invitation.

Also, our venue provides a ‘room captain’. In my mind, I am picturing some sort of pirate with a parrot on his shoulder.

I never knew what a crinoline was until I joined this board.

Love this post… and it so true!

I think I was on these boards just lurking for at least a month of two before posting a thing, just trying to figure out what all the abbreviations stood for.
