These are demitasse cups for a wedding or a gift. Der Braut is The Bride and Dem Brautigam is The Groom.

Translated: Der Braut is "of the bride" and Dem Brautigam is "the bride and groom." So, I would guess they are some kind of wedding cups.

Monogrammed coffee cups with deep saucers to drink from. Hot coffee is cooled by pouring it into the saucer, then drink from.

I believe they are cups and saucers given to newlyweds.

Unless I’m mistaken, the inscriptions read “bridegroom” and “bride” in German, maybe used at a wedding celebration.
