My Wedding ceremony Tales introduces extra enjoyable and private methods to rejoice your Sims saying “I do.” Forward of the pack’s launch, My Wedding ceremony Tales producers held a digital demo to indicate off what Simmers can stay up for.
Till now, weddings within the Sims 4 felt a bit flat. After two Sims bought engaged, gamers had the choice to plan a marriage occasion or instantly elope. If you happen to selected to elope, your Sims would instantly alternate vows and rings on the spot. If you happen to deliberate a marriage occasion, one other display would pop up and you’ll select a location, friends, a caterer and a musician for the massive day. Since I’ve gotten extra into legacy gameplay and storytelling, this format felt missing, even after I set my wedding ceremony as a goaled occasion that yields rewards.

Buy a bouquet to toss on the reception, taste-test to seek out the right cake and select a topper. The brand new pack lastly differentiates a marriage cake from a birthday cake with totally different colours, sizes and styles.
One in every of my favourite elements about My Wedding ceremony Tales is the gang management choices. Anybody who’s performed The Sims is aware of the frustrations of making an attempt to corral celebration friends. Creating a gaggle helps, however the brand new pack presents useful instructions for friends to take their seats for the ceremony, stroll down the aisle, collect for the bouquet toss, throw rice, eat and drink.
