What do you call the people getting married at a wedding, i.e., the bride(s) and groom(s)? I was going to call them the "celebrants" but then I found out that "celebrant" is used for the preacher or whoever officiates at the ceremony. I want a word for the people who are taking the vows.
P.S. Is there a Latin-based word analogous to "officiant" or "celebrant"? The officiant read the wedding vows to the ________s?
What about "the principals"? Would that work?
