The Bride is a zombie variant that appears during a Blood Moon or very rarely at any time in a Graveyard biome. She acts the same as normal zombies, slowly walking towards the player to deal contact damage, while attempting to navigate around obstacles and opening doors if they are in the way. She has greater health than most other zombies, and is dressed in a traditional bride's outfit, which she can drop in the form of the Wedding Veil and Wedding Dress.
She does not have any variants, nor does she have an Armed variation in Expert Mode. The Groom is her marriage counterpart.
Despite being the counterpart to The Groom and equally relevant to marriage, she does not grant the "Til Death..." achievement when killed.
Following a Discord message where Redigit jokingly answered a Discord user's question of "who are the angler's parents" with "they ded", a Reddit user declared "officially starting" a theory of the Groom and the Bride being the Angler's parents, to which Redigit, likewise jokingly, replied "This is now canon."
The Bestiary entry for The Bride: "It's uncertain if the bride was wed before or after her death, but the story ends tragically for anyone who crosses her path."
