You're also wrong about it being the alternate title, it's the way you're supposed to read it.
The way you're supposed to read 悪魔の花婿 is Akuma no Hanamuko (absent of any furigana/further information). The way you're supposed to refer to the product can be Akuma or Deimos, leaning towards Deimos. How are Japanese people going to type 悪魔 in the first place? So even if Deimos no Hanayome is the 100% correct be-all end-all title, Akuma effectively becomes the de-facto title by necessity.

Why is the official English translation acceptable but not this one:

In what way is "The Bride of the Demon" a "bad" and "inaccurate" translation?

Here is the official manga cover: http://auctions.c.yimg.jp/images.auc...vfo0o14262.jpg

It consists of three titles: 悪魔の花婿, デイモスの花婿, and The Bride of the Demon.
