2. What does MOH stand for?

Maid of Honor

When you're discussing a wedding, MOH stands for "maid of honor." A bride's maid of honor is her right-hand woman in the run-up to and on the day of her wedding.

In traditional Western wedding ceremonies, a bride's bridal party consists of several women (usually friends and family members) who act as bridesmaids. Bridesmaids stand with the bride during the wedding and often assist the bride before the wedding begins. The bride's maid of honor is, essentially, her chief bridesmaid. In addition to assisting the bride on her wedding day, the maid of honor also typically plans the bride's bachelorette party, acts as an official witness to the wedding, and gives a speech during the wedding reception.

Example

"Is your sister going to be your MOH?"
