    Didn't you already ask this question? Marriage is not the correct word to go with any of these words.

    Marriage is the institution. I am married. I got married in a wedding ceremony. The function was a wedding. The people who participated in the ceremony were the wedding party (the bride, the groom, the groomsmen, the maids of honor). The party after the wedding is usually called the wedding reception.
