The coolest brides use the coolest wedding terms to hashtag their pictures. Even their venue and invites stand out for they sprinkle fun and new words in everything they do. So, if you are planning your wedding or helping your bestie plan hers, might we suggest you take a look at these new wedding terms? It can’t get more *lit* than this!



1. Bridechilla


She is the super chill bride who isn’t stressing about her makeup, clothes, venue, food, guests, et al. She is having fun at her own wedding like a bawse, and is basically the opposite of the bridezilla, who is losing her mind over all the planning.

2. Feyonce


Just a fancier way of writing fiancé. Inspired by Beyonce, of course, the original queen of all things cool.

3. Hen party


A party thrown by a bride’s besties in honour of her last night as a single woman. Yes, a bachelorette party, but no we shan’t call it that when we can say ‘hen party’ and leave people guessing.

4. FHB


No shaadi ka ghar is complete without many, many relatives crashing over for days in advance with food supplies eventually running out. That’s when you use this code word to tell the family to hold back. FHB = family hold back. Useful, right?  

5. Snatched


Still using fleek and slay? You gotta upgrade to snatched. It serves almost the same meaning – to say something is perfect or on point – but is just a tad bit more trendy to use.

There’s a new word in town for romantic relationships (or just a shorter version of what already was!) Yup, to ‘ship’ two people means to wish them into a relationship. So, you totally ship your bestie and her crush – get it?
