There is really no such thing. From a legal standpoint, you can assume it's anyone pregnant under the age of 18. From a religious standpoint, underage pregnancy could be considered that of an un-wed woman. From society's perspective, it's simply a "young mother" wed or un-wed.

I find the question somewhat confusing, but... Underage *generally* refers to someone who is under the age of majority, which is 18 in the US. Pregnancy has no effect on the age of majority. A 17-year-old is underage. A pregnant 17-year-old is still underage.

Unless the bride is pregnant, than no, you just need proof of the pregnancy. Yes.
