As a soon-to-be bride new to the wedding industry hoopla, you may find yourself lost in a whirlwind of “wedding jargon” and struggling to understand! It’s one of my favorite aspects of planning because it’s like a completely different language that we planners and wedding vendors speak.
Here are 15 abbreviations that all brides should become familiar with:
BM Bridesmaid/Best Man
DW Destination Wedding
EP Engagement Party
DOC Day of Coordinator
FH Future Husband
FW Future Wife
FOB Father of the Bride
MOB Mother of the Bride
MOG Mother of the Groom
FOG Father of the Groom
MOH Maid/Matron of Honor
BP Bridal Party
I was so excited to be offered a style shoot in the 2018 Winter/Spring issue of Elegant Wedding Magazine. Of course, with something this exciting- everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong. Everything up until and even the day of the shoot- everything went wrong.
Incredibly and thankfully I survived and so did the shoot. I had an incredible team and they pulled through for me and put so much talent and work into making it what it is-amazing!
Flavor and Flair was the magazine theme so I chose to work with a bold, very rich color scheme consisting of deep plum, mulberry, cotton candy pink, chartreuse and gold. I was hoping to create a very “regal” feel to the shoot and everything down to the gowns and jewelry reflected drama and majesty.
