i would say that the bride spoken of in Revelation 22:17 is the universal church of all believers in Christ, which was previously described in Revelation 21:2 as the new Jerusalem, which John saw in his vision coming down from heaven, adorned as a bride for her husband (that is, Christ). By saying, "Come," the church is invIting all of humanity to place their faith in Christ for the forgiveness of their sins, and the gaining of eternal life.
Revelation 21:2 + 9, "Then I, John, saw the Holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with seven last plagues came to me saying, 'Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife.'"
