    Not sure where you’re from or where they’re from but my version of SOB is nit something I would call a family member…

    My version of SOB is “shortness of breath”.  In wedding talk… probably Sister of the Bride?

    Well, son doesn’t make sense, because you wouldn’t want a corsage for your son. It’s got to be stepmother or sister–do you have a sister who’s not a bridesmaid? Or a stepmother? If you don’t have either, you can just say no, lol.

    My guess is sister of bride.    I do see SMOB used on these boards sometimes as an abbreviation for stepmother of bride.  Or maybe it’s an all inclusive term for both.

    @DanceAwayDarling:  I almost put “shortness of breath” before I even read your post. Glad I didn’t. I suppose you, too, work in a hospital? haha. But I’d assume sister of bride.

    @DanceAwayDarling:  SOB to me means shortness of breath ( yup im a nurse) or son of a lady dog. But in this context its got to be stepmother surely? I’d make the assumption that if you’d got a sister chances are she’d be a BM. Why not call and ask?

    I would say stepmother of bride because it’s listed between mother and grandmother.
