Where do you typically throw your Sims' Weddings?

«1
I realized I almost always throw my Sims' weddings at their house. I dress up the lot and they usually get married in the front or back yard. You know, a quaint, simple wedding. But I noticed some players throw these big, lavish weddings out at venues. Sometimes even downloading a lot from the gallery specifically for weddings. I'd love to hear what you usually do!

    They elope, simply because I can't be bothered to throw a wedding. However, now that I can schedule events with seasons, I might have them do one more often.

    I'm too impatient for loading screens so a majority of the time my sims will just get married in their backyard.

    Sometimes at a specific location, or just any park with an arch, or at my sims house depends on the sim.

    Rotational save:
    Main characters get to use my beach wedding lot and get a proper party.
    Secondary characters elope before whatever backdrop I find fits their personality best. If I even bother and not just set them as spouses with cas.fulleditmode.

    Legacy save:
    They marry in the legacy house and the arch must specifically set up to include the lit up lighthouse in the wedding screenshot. Ideally also the moon, because both moon and lighthouse are of great symbolic value to my legacy sims.

    I love throwing weddings for my sims and getting the gifts from completing the wedding party! Wedding lots all the way though.
    My EA ID is TranquilloSims - where I upload starter homes, family homes and some more ambitious creations.

    My wedding venue has a section for the ceremony and one for the reception.

    I usually just go to the the San Myshuno park or another lot with the wedding arch on it. I did used to use a 'church' lot I got from the gallery, but I figured it didn't really fit my sims much.

    For me, weddings aren't too big of a deal in my game. I might take some screenshots, but a lot of the time my sims will just elope on the spot in a pretty location or just not bother getting married as it doesn't make much of a difference if they are or not. My sims would probably get married more if the step-parents and aunt & uncle in-laws were recognised in the relationship panel.

    I wish that those relationships were recognized. The Sims 4 relationship panel is just so lacking in detail, I wish they could expand on it further.

    Elope. Staging a wedding is a pain - in real life and in the game.

    For me it varies on how invested I am on a specific family. If I'm being lazy and not too invested in the story-telling aspect, I just have them elope. If I'm feeling a bit more ambitious, I usually download a venue from the gallery

    I typically just go for any place that has an existing wedding arch nearby. Lately, I've been enjoying having my sims get married at the wedding arch just behind the Club Calico in Brindleton Bay.

    it depends on the sims getting married.
    if the sims are the type to have a big fancy wedding, i give them a big fancy wedding. i've also had sims that just eloped on the spot, or at the romance festival.
    the venues i use depend on the sim's personalities. i've used traditional churches, outdoor venues, wedding barns, lounges, and more.

    I have a generic lot set aside for it. Sometimes I use parks, especially the one in Willow Creek

    I have 3 venues I use for weddings, all downloaded from the gallery.

    One is a small chapel, with a place in the garden for the reception.
    The second is a large, elegant build with a chapel, a lovely courtyard, and even apartments for a mini honeymoon.
    The other one I use is a gorgeous park that I placed where the VonHaunt house used to be, the ceremony under arch near the waterfall and then back to the park for a garden reception (cross your fingers it doesn’t rain).

    If I am feeling lazy I just have them elope. One of the couples married in their kitchen, (really didn’t think that one through) all of the pics have a kitchen bench or appliance in the background. :#

    All of my Sim couples that i have not married in CAS have eloped. I do want to throw an elaborate wedding for one of my favourite sim couples though. I was going to actually do a wedding event for my other favourite couple but I was so impatient I just had them elope

    If I don't just have them elope, they usually get married at their houses. It's simpler for me that way.

    It really depends on the personality of the sims and specific story/vibe going on. I've realized I do a LOT of weddings (just got the achievement for "serial monogomist" on my current save, lol) and I always try to go with what seems right for the specific couple.

    So, I downloaded a spooky graveyard lounge for Morticia and Gomez.
    AX76EDH.png

    These two actually two "weddings"--one big lavish public one with Miko friends contacts (she's in the politician career) and a private "wedding" with just the two of them where my "sim-self" Fanphoria Mercury could flaunt her alien-ness without freaking anyone out.

    FeuWmkQ.png

    These two were impatient, and proposed and then immediately eloped at this tiny "chapel" that I'd placed in world.
    mjOjPDK.png
    TGV2WXq.png

    These two had been together for ages already, and had a quaint but festive backyard wedding, with their three teenage kids helping out on cooking and hosting duties.
    5WSpis6.png

    These two had a small (family only) rather formal and "important" wedding at a proper cathedral with a graveyard, as they were uniting to major vampire dynasties.
    IS8N3XD.png

    This romantic sim threw a lavish wedding at the von haunt estate and married her vampire betrothed at the stroke of midnight.
    NBtbHD8.png

    This sim who loves the outdoors also had a lavish Von Haunt estate wedding...and then a smaller backyard elopement for her second marriage, after the first one didn't work out ;-P

    gTYROqo.png

    These two were still pretty poor when they got hitched, so they eloped in the ruins, and threw a cheaper party for all their friends after.

    This trendy young romantic city couple got threw a big wedding at the Center Park.
    PL1W6nt.png

    This was a whirlwind relationship where the met, went on their first date, got engaged, and then eloped in the kitchen all in one day lol
    S5OBs9y.png

    These traditional types had a small family wedding in the chapel.
    IXWW1xq.png

    These frugal artsy types eloped outside the museum.
    ArAaD0J.png

    These two had kind of a controversial relationship, as the were basically brought up as siblings (each born from an abduction through a different parent) and eloped at the von haunt estate.
    unBttmh.png

    This successful and born rich artist married her outdoorsy beau in the newly renovated Municipal Muses courtyard, in a BIG and BOISTEROUS wedding
    0boXAlF.png

    These two wanted to show off their swanky new apartment (didn't really work out, but still, can't knock the view).
    CC9pvu5.png


    And these two took advantage of the romance festival timing perfectly with their wedding plans.
    KfJCuu4.png

    And I've had elopements at the bluffs or on dates, and several other home weddings as well, sometime multiple generations in the same home. It all just depends on the circumstances and what vibe I get from the couple. I've got my tried and true ones of course--the rebuild of the von haunt estate I use is great for weddings, in a practical and aesthetic sense--but I like to try out new things too. Another pair of my recently got engaged, and I'm think about a home wedding for them, since she has the mansion baron aspiration and they've just moved into a pretty nice place and I imagine she'd want to show it off. I'd want to make it extra EXTRA nice, so we'll see what I an manage lol ;-P

    I didn’t read through the poll properly and chose the wrong option - sorry. Most of the time, my sims elope on the spot. But, when they do get married, they use a beautiful wedding church I downloaded from the gallery.

    Typically I throw weddings around waterfalls and on top of the lighthouse in Brendleton Bay. Sometimes I'll have sims get married at the romance festival but sadly that rarely occurs in my game.

    On the home lot - either as an event or just on the spot.

    Well I never had a wedding till now (yes true!) ;) but if I have one soon, I will definitly use one of the wedding bows maxis already prepeared (San Myshuno Meadows or at the chalet or in Brindleton Bay or at the Romance festival. I like these places very much.) For a possible Vampire wedding I will create a new spooky location with a lot of creepy Vamp stuff. :).
