Animal Crossing: New Horizons Wedding Event: Everything You Need to Know

by Andrew Smith

The month of June is wedding season in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and we’ve got all the details about the upcoming event for you. Announced in April, the New Horizons wedding event will see two beloved characters from New Leaf make their debut in the latest installment to the Animal Crossing series. In this guide, we’ve put together everything you need to know about the wedding event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.  

When Is the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Wedding Event?

The wedding event will take place during the month of June in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Beginning on June 1, players will be able to catch a flight to Harv’s Island to help plan the happy couple’s big day anytime through June 30. Fans of the franchise might recognize the couple to be as Cyrus and Reese from New Leaf. They are the owners of Re-Tail recycling shop. At the time of writing it’s unclear if Cyrus and Reese will be settling down in the world of New Horizons, or if they’ll be traveling elsewhere after the wedding event is over. 

The two alpacas are in need of a photographer for their wedding anniversary photos and you’ll be tasked with helping them arrange the wedding chapel to get the perfect shot. This is a big day for the couple, so you’ll need to make sure you get the shot just right. It looks like you’ll be capturing the big day with your NookPhone too, so you better make sure the lighting is perfect! For your troubles, you’ll likely be gifted some type of wedding-themed item for your own island.

With the event lasting the whole month, it’s unclear if other NPCs will be getting married or participating in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons wedding event in some way. Thankfully things are going to kick off in just a few days so we won’t have to wait very long to find out. 

Unfortunately, the rampant spread of COVID-19 has caused many couples to have to cancel their weddings in real life. However, that didn’t stop one couple from celebrating their big day with their friends. Early this year, 9Gag user ‘Ashmush’ and their partner decided to move their wedding location to the virtual world of Animal Crossing!

While you’re waiting for the festivities to begin, be sure to check out all of the new bugs and fish coming in June. Further, we’ve got some detailed guides ready to go that will show you exactly how to catch the Great White Shark and the Giant Snakehead. Additionally, be sure to check out the full list of events coming to New Horizons in the coming months. 

There are tons of things to collect and uncover in New Horizons, so be sure to check out some of our other guides, which we’ve listed below.
