    What specifically do you need translated? 

    FI is fiance. 
    FMIL - Future Mother-In-Law (and so on) 

  • There used to be, but the sticky got lost.

    AW = attention whore
    DW = destination wedding
    AHR = at home reception
    DH = dear (or damn, depending on the day) husband
    FI/FH = fiance, future husband
    FMIL = future mother in law
    FFIL = future father in law
    FSIL = future sister in law or future son in law, depending on context
    FDIL = future daughter in law
    FBIL = future brother in law
    DS = dear son
    DD = dear daughter
    SS = step son
    SD = step daugher
    BM = bridesmaids or best man, depending on context
    GM = groomsmen
    MOH = maid (or matron) of honour
    WP = wedding party
    ETF/ETA = edited to fix/edited to add
    OP = original poster
    DD = dirty delete (when a poster deletes the original post after not liking the answers)

    If you have a question about any I didn't list (this was off the top of my head), just ask us!

    STD and BM are always good for a juvenile chuckle
    It's even better when you combine them, like "I gave my BM an STD today!" or "I finally got my STD's and BM's!"

    It took me a while to figure these out. At my old job we had sales regions named NER and NWR - Northeast Region and Northwest Region. I was like "is this question only relevant to people in Seattle or something?!" Noooope.
