Rosabelle really wants to start a family once they are married, but she is afraid that since she has spent so much of her life already just trying to scrap by that she will not live to see her child reach their teen years. She has been saving her satisfaction points and finally has enough to buy a potion of youth, which will return her to the beginning of her young adult life span. Unfortunately Pawel doesn’t have enough for one yet.

Now it is time for the Wedding Ceremony! The Prospero’s booked the outdoor wedding venue at The Simstitution of Art in Willow Creek. The venue costs §1000 simoleons, they also hire an entertainer for §250 and pay an additional §25 simoleons for their wedding cake topper. Their household funds are now §18,770 simoleons.

The party arrives at the Museum, for some reason not many of the invited guests stay once they arrive there and the wedding party now consists of 3 guys, one of which is Rosabelle’s original potential spouse, Philip Montgomery.

Rosabelle thanks Philip for coming to the wedding. He is actually friends with both her and Pawel.

The Prospero’s got a silver medal on their wedding ceremony and received a leftover centerpiece worth §80 and a wedding pillar with floral basket worth §180. They sell the pillar only for §180 simloeons, their funds are now §18,950 simoleons.


Author’s Note: The wedding was only able to receive a silver metal because the only action left at the end was to have drinks and not only did I not hire a bartender but I didn’t even place a bar at the venue to make any drinks at even if there was no bartender. Oops.


After the ceremony had finished Rosabelle and Pawel returned home tired but happy. They decided to memorialize this special day by taking some wedding photos to hang in their house.

They returned home as night was falling, Philip M. was waiting at the door to visit, but they have more important things on their minds than him.

      Yes, I debated whether to have a wedding party at all or just elope. Even though it was a bit expensive and they are supposed to be saving every simoleon it didn’t seem right to not have a wedding celebration. I tried to cut costs by not hiring a caterer or mixologist.
