Who is called a bride? A bride is a woman who is about to be married or who is newlywed. When marrying, the bride’s future spouse, (if male) is usually referred to as the bridegroom or groom and after the wedding, in marriage, is her husband. In Western culture, a bride may be attended by one or more bridesmaids.
A bridegroom (usually shortened to groom) is a man who is about to be married, or who has just been married. The original word, circa 1000, was brydegome. Modern bridegroom probably arose as an alteration of brydegome, which is based on the Middle English word gome (Old English guma), meaning ‘man’.
"To love is nothing. To be loved is something. But to love and be loved, that’s everything."
