Wedding Lingo

My good friend Tamiko Hargrove of Helen Julia NY brought this cute little list to my attention today. It's Real Simple Weddings' Lingo Cheat Sheet; a list of popular acronyms used by brides-to-be across the country, particularly on message boards and blogs (yes, brides, you have your own language).

Here's the list, to help you make sense of it all:


BM: Best man, or bridesmaid
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
TBP: The Bridal Party (no secret why this one's my favorite ... wink)
