301: Wedding Abbreviations

So, since I have about 10-15 minutes to post before I go to Move Studios in Brighton, I thought I'd put up a quick post on something I've wanted to do: wedding abbreviations! It takes some getting used to all of these abbreviations, and even 8 months later, I sometimes have to stop & think or check to see what some are. So here are some abbreviations, you can come back & check them out anytime you need to! I'm putting on as many as I can find, but will italicize the ones that will most likely be used the most by me. Some are used more in blogs/message boards (I may not use FI too much here, but I use it a lot in message boards). Hope this helps when you're browsing around!
