    Which sentence is correct?

    Which sentence is correct? This is for the bride "that" loves chocolate or This is for the bride "who" loves chocolate?

    As far as I know, 'who' is a relative pronoun referring to a human being, so 'The bride who loves chocolate' must be correct.

    'The machine that makes chocolate' - you'd never say 'The machine who makes chocolate'.

    They are both grammatically acceptable, but I would go with, who, it reads better; and also for the reasons given by, camio.

    Alternatively, change the sentence around:

    This is for the chocolate-loving bride

    Change the sentence,  the chocolate-loving bride.
