There is such a thing as a godparent of the wedding. My friend who is Mexican Catholic had this. Like you they were a married couple who could help guide them in their marriage. The couple didn’t walk down the aisle but they were at the front and I think read a prayer and put the lasso over them …

My husband and I were asked to do this for a young couple at our church.  We did not walk in with the wedding party but were called up during the service.  The pastor explained that we were commiting to praying for the couple throughout their first year of marriage.  We took communion with them. I do not remember what they called us in the ceremony, but we were called their mentors that first year.

I would ask your priest or religious officiant if there is a term they would suggest.

In Romania that’s exactly what we call them: godparents. All couples getting married in the church (Eastern Orthodox) have to choose their godparents, which is usually another more experienced married couple. But many times they are just a couple that is close to the bride and groom. They call them godparents, but also spiritual parents.
