2D. Obtain the Blue Feather

After completing all the above requirements the player will sleep one evening and dream of the blue bird. After having the dream do as you did earlier in the story, visit the beach on a sunny, clear evening, after 7 pm. There you will be given the blue feather. Once you have obtained the blue feather speak to any bachelor/bachelorette whom you have completed all 4 note events with, and you will be given the option to “propose marriage”.


2E. Wedding Planning

In order to get married you will need to gather the items in order to make a Tux and Wedding Gown for yourself and your betrothed. The quest to create them can be started by speaking to Melanie, located at Gus’ Smithy. Gather the following;

  • 3x Orichalcum
  • 2x Great Cotton Candy Wool*
  • 2x Great Silky Fur**

*Cotton Candy Wool will be available from Cotton Sheep through Sophia, after main story completion.
**Silky Fur will be available from Silky Donkeys through Sophia, after main story completion.

After bringing the items to Melanie it will take 7 days for her to complete the outfits. After the player collects the Tux and Gown your wedding date will be automatically be set 7 days later, so plan accordingly if you require a specific date.
