Wedding Language

Its funny how the world that we live in with texting and social media has changed the way we communicate with one another.  Acronyms have taken over everywhere we go.  I find myself using them all the time while taking notes and communicating with our clients.  But I can't fool myself into thinking that every one knows what my favorite wedding acronyms stand for.  In doing some research for this post I found that there are way more that I even knew about. 
These are some of the new acronyms to learn:
