Wedding Season is coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the entire month of June! Yes, the Bells will be ringing as happy couples celebrate their love in the upcoming event. A slew of new events and features came with the announcement of the 23rd April update (which includes the return of old favourite characters Leif the Sloth and (dodgy) art dealer Redd), and perhaps the most surprising was Wedding Season.
But what exactly does Wedding Season entail? Will we get to tie the knot with our favourite island residents? In this guide we've collected all available information on the upcoming Wedding Season event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Pack your camera for this one...
Animal Crossing: New Horizons: Wedding Season event
When is Wedding Season in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?
Wedding Season in New Horizons is a month-long event that runs from 1st June to 30th June.
What happens during Wedding Season in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?
It appears that happy couples journey to Harv's Island during Wedding Season in order to commemorate their blissful matrimony by sitting for anniversary photographs that you snap with the camera on your NookPhone. We're not sure we'd be happy if our wedding photographer turned up with only a cellphone, but maybe we're too picky. The cameras on phones these days can be pretty impressive.
What to expect for the Wedding Season event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
It looks like you'll be jetting to Harv's Island for this event, a destination in the game which players can reach at any time via the airport. You normally use Animal Crossing amiibo cards to bring models to a bespoke photo shoot which you can decorate in whatever way you see fit.
However, it appears that during Wedding Season couples will ask for specific studio photos with themed sets of furniture (presumably to be provided by the player). In the trailer we see Cyrus and Reese, the alpaca couple who run the Re-Tail recycling shop in Animal Crossing: New Leaf in a chapel-like room being arranged for an anniversary photo shoot. And a very cute couple they look, too!
In return for arranging the perfect picture, you'll receive wedding-themed items from the happy couple.
At the moment it's unclear if other characters will participate, and only Cyrus and Reese are mentioned in the official PR. With the event lasting for an entire month, though, we assume there are more characters to come. Regardless, it's great to see the Re-tailers returning in New Horizon.
Check out the short trailer below for a better idea of what to expect. We'll update this article with more information as we get it.

That's all we know for the moment, although we'll update this article with more information as we get it.
