Wedding Lingo – Getting Up to Speed

Now that you’re engaged and starting to plan your wedding, chances are that you’ve encountered a whole new world of lingo! As you browse wedding-oriented websites and message boards for advice and ideas, you’ll find that brides-to-be have their own special, and often confusing, language. I know that when I first encountered the new popular wedding acronyms, my head was swimming. Here is a cheat sheet from Real Simple Weddings to help you make sense of it all: 
BM: Best man, or bridesmaid
BP: Bridal party
DW: Destination wedding
FBIL: Future brother-in-law
FFIL: Future father-in-law
FG: Flower girl
FH: Future husband
FMIL: Future mother-in-law
FOB: Father of the bride
FOG: Father of the groom
FSIL: Future sister-in-law
GM: Groomsmen
GP: Grandparent
MOB: Mother of the bride
MOG: Mother of the groom
MOH: Maid of honor
OOTG: Out-of-town guests
RB: Ring bearer
