Love is in the air in Animal Crossing: New Horizons‘ latest event. Wedding Season is live now and lasts the whole month. During the event, you’ll be able to gain new limited time items, flex your decorating skills and help out two very familiar faces. Here’s how Wedding Season works, and how you can unlock every unique item.
To access the event, you’ll need to head to the airport and fly to Harv’s Island, also known as Photopia. Thus far, the lone island has served little purpose in the game — but the Wedding Season event changes all that.
When you arrive on Harv’s Island, you’ll meet Reece and Cyrus, an alpaca couple who want to recreate their wedding photos in Harv’s studio. Reece and Cyrus first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, where they ran the Re-Tail recycled furniture store. They’re very cute, and they need your help.
Every day from June 1 to June 30, Reece and Cyrus will request a different style of photo they want you to take. They’ll specify which colour and style furniture they’d like their photo to have, as well as a wedding-themed event you’ll need to recreate. It’s your job to choose the right items to decorate the room with from your personal item catalogue. The more items you place that fit the overall theme of the request, the more heart crystals you’ll earn for your efforts.
To place items, open your catalogue using the down button and select your chosen furniture. Using ‘X’ will let you select colour variations to match Reece and Cyrus’ request. You can fit as many items in the room as you like. While there isn’t currently a definitive guide for which categories items belong to, you can view colour variants and options at the Animal Crossing Wiki.
If you’ve placed enough of the right items, Cyrus will reward you with a heart crystal. These items operate as currency during June and you can trade them in to Cyrus for unique Wedding Season items.
