|A gift that shows your romantic interest.|
|Source:||Pierre's General Store|
The Bouquet is a special present you may give only to a marriage candidate with whom you have gained an 8-heart friendship. A bouquet can be purchased at Pierre's General Store for 200g any time after reaching an 8-heart friendship with a marriage candidate.
Giving a bouquet to a marriage candidate indicates romantic interest and changes the recipient's status to "boyfriend" or "girlfriend" on the "Social" tab of the pause menu. You may give a bouquet to any or all qualified candidates, but only once to each. Giving a bouquet does not count as a normal gift, and confers no friendship points itself. It unfreezes the friendship level with each recipient, allowing it to increase to 10 hearts, and to decay. Note that pre-bouquet, friendship points with a marriage candidate can continue to increase to just below 9 hearts (2249 points).
Trying to give a bouquet to someone that is not listed as single will simply say that you cannot date that person. Persisting in attempting to give a bouquet to a non-marriage candidate may produce additional dialogue, such as "I don't get it" or "Is this a joke?"
The bouquet can be sold for 100g via the shipping box. Pierre will not buy them back.
Group 10-Heart Event
If the player is unmarried and has given a bouquet to all available bachelorettes, raised friendship with each bachelorette to 10 hearts, and seen each bachelorette's 10-heart event, then entering Haley/Emily's House will trigger a cutscene.
| If the player has a Rabbit's Foot in inventory, the cutscene will consist of a gossip session about Mayor Lewis and Marnie's relationship.
If the player does not have a Rabbit's Foot in inventory, all bachelorettes will express anger about the player dating them all at one time. Regardless of the player's dialogue choice(s), all bachelorettes will decide to give the player the "cold shoulder" for about a week after the event. They will give angry dialogue when interacted with, and refuse gifts. After about a week, all bachelorettes will forgive the player, and dialogues return to normal.
If the player is unmarried and has given a bouquet to all available bachelors, raised friendship with each bachelor to 10 hearts, and seen each bachelor's 10-heart event, then entering The Stardrop Saloon will trigger a cutscene. If Alex is the final bachelor you share a Ten-Heart Event with, the Group Ten-Heart Event will be unavoidable as it is triggered immediately afterwards.
| If the player has a Rabbit's Foot in inventory, the cutscene will consist of a friendly game of pool.
If the player does not have a Rabbit's Foot in inventory, all bachelors will express anger about the player dating them all at one time. Regardless of the player's dialogue choice(s), all bachelors will decide to give the player the "cold shoulder" for about a week after the event. They will give angry dialogue when interacted with, and refuse gifts. After about a week, all bachelors will forgive the player, and dialogues return to normal.
- On the day you give a bouquet, doing so before you have any other interaction with the villager immediately unfreezes any friendship levels that may already exist. You are then free to proceed with normal talking and gift-giving, which then maximizes the friendship points you gain under the combined circumstances.
- The first version of the group 10-heart event (released during beta testing) was much more harsh. It would cause the player to lose 250 friendship points with each bachelor/bachelorette, and cancel any engagement the player had with a villager. The bachelors/bachelorettes would exclaim they were all "breaking up" with the player, instead of giving the "cold shoulder." The event would also reset all bachelors/bachelorettes to 8 hearts of friendship, and "girlfriend" or "boyfriend" status would be removed. In this harsher version, the rabbit's foot would do nothing.
- Marriage candidates may make requests at the "Help Wanted" board outside Pierre's General Store during the "cold shoulder" week. Upon fulfulling the quest, the marriage candidate will express gratitude and offer payment as usual, before returning to angry/hurt dialogue.
