Wedding arches are objects Sims get married under in The Sims 2, The Sims Castaway Stories, The Sims 3: Generations, The Sims 3: Island Paradise, and The Sims 4.

The Sims 2[edit | edit source]

In The Sims 2, the wedding arch is used by selecting a member of the engaged couple, clicking on the the arch, and selecting "Get Married" or "Join Union". While Sims can get married or enter a Joined Union with or without using the arch, using the arch allows a player to add a bit of formality, as Sims who get married or joined under the arch will change into their formal clothes.

If the relationship between the two Sims is too low, one may call off the wedding. While this can happen regardless of whether the arch is used, it's more dramatic if the arch is involved.

If the special event camera is enabled, using the wedding arch to marry two Sims will begin a cinematic. If successful, the Sims will exchange vows and rings, flower petals will fall, and the Sims will kiss. If unsuccessful, the Sim who did not initiate the interaction will watch the other Sim begin to put on the ring, then after a few tense moments jerk back his or her hand and run away from the wedding arch. The camera focuses on the rejected Sim as the sounds of footsteps running, a car door slamming, and tires screeching are audible. (An unsuccessful marriage will automatically ruin a wedding party.) After being left at the altar, the proposer and proposed will lose their crush, fall out of love, lose each other as friends and become enemies.

The Sims 2: Celebration Stuff added a second arch to the game, which functions similarly to the base game arch.

The Sims 3[edit | edit source]

Sims getting married in a wedding arch, in The Sims 3: Generations.

In The Sims 3, the wedding arch is introduced in the Generations expansion pack. A wedding cake is also available to complement the Sims marriage.

The arch resembles the base game wedding arch in The Sims 2. The couple will have the option to immediately "Get Married" by clicking on the arch, and people will gather around autonomously to watch them exchange rings. Like The Sims 2, Sims get married in their formal outfits.

Traditional Wedding Arch[edit | edit source]

Tradition may demand that couples tie the knot underneath a wedding arch, but few wedding arches are as untraditional as this one! The wines you see adorning the arch are not plants at all, but fine silk woven by the artist monks of Shang SimLa. Each leaf and stem are individually mounted on the faux wood frame and the massive amounts of adhesive is used to ensure that nary a leaf will wave in the wind during the ceremony.

The Sims 4[edit | edit source]

In The Sims 4, Sims can get married under wedding arches, similar to previous games. Other Sims on the lot will gather around autonomously to watch the wedding.

Single Sims have the option to "Fantasize About Weddings" while standing under a wedding arch, which will grant a flirty moodlet. Couples who are already married can renew their vows under an arch at the Romance Festival in San Myshuno[CL]. There is also the option to plan a wedding event directly from an arch, without having to go through the menus on a Sim's phone first.

Sims marry in whatever outfits they have on, so it's important to plan their wedding attire beforehand. Wedding events automatically change Sims with feminine clothing preference into wedding dresses and Sims with masculine clothing preference into tuxedos, but the player is free to change them into other outfits before the ceremony starts.
