Many cultures worldwide see a person’s wedding as the most important day of their lives.
It’s the culmination of a long courting process, falling in love, assessing compatibility… and, in some cases, finding a suitable Amulet of Mara.
I’ve married several times in Skyrim (don’t tell any of my spouses, please). It’s always a reason for celebration, but the simplistic ceremonies left me feeling empty.
So if you want a Skyrim wedding that’ll rival TLC’s Big Fat Gypsy Weddings, you’ll need some mods to add flavor and complexity to the most important day of the Dragonborn’s life.
1. Sofie Sells Wedding Wreaths
Sofie is one of the most tragic characters in Skyrim.
This little girl lost her mother at a young age, and her Stormcloak father was killed in battle. While he might’ve entered Sovngarde, this poor girl is left to fend for herself in the cold city of Windhelm.
In the vanilla game, Sofie sells flowers to survive – a not-so-successful business.
You could adopt her… or teach her to make something a little bit easier to sell.
With this mod, Sofie will be able to weave Wedding Wreaths, which everyone needs to get married.
It might not solve all her problems, but she’ll be able to feed herself – and you can get the wreath without killing Vittoria Vici.
2. Animated Wedding Scene
I always loved that Skyrim let you have a lovely little ceremony for your marriage, but it was clearly never a priority for Bethesda, so it’s pretty basic.
This Animated Wedding Scene can make it a lot more emotional by allowing you to romantically put the ring on your spouse before sealing the deal with a kiss.
This is definitely more memorable than just hearing that you’re married and heading straight back out to your daily lives.
3. Vittoria’s Alternate Wedding
In the vanilla game, you attend Vittoria Vici’s wedding with the specific purpose of assassinating her at the height of the ceremony as part of a Dark Brotherhood plot to draw the Emperor to Skyrim.
If you decide to destroy the Dark Brotherhood, the wedding just doesn’t happen!
That’s not very immersive, is it?
Vittoria’s Alternate Wedding makes it so you receive an invitation to the wedding a couple days after destroying the DB.
With it, you can attend the wedding, enjoy the reception, and finish listening to Vittoria’s speech without any shady business.
4. Haku Wedding Dress
The wedding dress you steal after murdering Vittoria Vici is pretty attractive.
But if you want something that’ll really capture the groom’s attention, this Haku Wedding Dress is for you.
This sexy version of a traditional Western wedding dress is elegant and a little risqué.
It follows most conventions but exposes the bride’s left leg, revealing a little bit of her thigh right above the thigh-high socks. Perfect for an adventurous Skyrim lady.
5. An Appropriately Attired Wedding Couple
Since not all marriageable characters are followers, it’s hard to control what they’ll wear to the wedding.
Most of them will show up in their everyday clothes – and even followers will only equip strong armor.
If you want everything to be just right for the big day, An Appropriately Attired Wedding Couple is a must-have in your load order.
This mod simply lets you give your spouse-to-be a custom wedding outfit of your choosing – like the Haku Wedding Dress mentioned above.
6. Apachii Divine Elegance Store
If you want a little more variety, I’d recommend Apachii Divine Elegance Store – an extensive mod introducing dozens of beautiful and refined outfits for male and female characters.
It includes a variety of styles, from Middle Eastern-looking robes to Victorian dresses. You can dress like a bard or a princess, or even steal King Radovid’s look from The Witcher 3.
You’ll even get some nice lingerie to wear on your honeymoon.
The best part is that this mod is well-integrated with the previous entry, allowing you to just pick one from a drop-down menu when discussing your spouse’s wedding attire.
7. Wedding Outfit Commission
For maximum immersion, you can also commission your wedding attire just like you would in real life.
This mod adds the option to order custom wedding clothes for you and your spouse-to-be from Radiant Raiment at Solitude.
The new dialogue with Taarie and Endarie – the Aldmer sisters running the store – is well-written and fully voiced with their vanilla voices, thanks to xVASynth.
You’ll have to wait a couple days for your outfits to be ready unless you’re willing to pay the price for a rush order. It’s just like a real wedding!
8. A Serious Wedding – Teldryn Sero Marriage
Many unique follower and quest mods feature custom wedding ceremonies between the Dragonborn and their main character.
But none are as exciting as Teldryn Sero’s Serious Wedding.
After installing it, you’ll have access to an extended lore-friendly marriage quest with 105 lines of voiced dialogue, culminating in an authentic traditional Dunmeri wedding – the highlight of this adventure.
This mod is an add-on to the main Teldryn Serious mod, which dramatically expands the character and takes you both on epic adventures.
That said, the two will work perfectly by themselves.
Note: Teldryn Sero will marry both male and female Dragonborn, so don’t let your character’s assigned gender stop you from enjoying this remarkable love story.
9. Better Wedding Guests
My biggest gripe with Skyrim weddings has always been how random the attendees are.
As the Dragonborn, you help many people throughout the game, and it’s hard to keep track of who’s “closer” to you according to the in-game numbers, which is what the game uses to determine your guests.
This mod fixes the issue in two ways.
First, it overhauls the guest-finding system to include your adopted children and anyone important to your spouse. Second, it actually lets you go around inviting specific people to the wedding – which should honestly have been a vanilla feature.
10. Marriage Mod – To Have and to Hold
Most people know the Marriage Mod for its multiple marriage feature, enabling the Dragonborn to re-marry after widowing or divorce. You can even have several partners under certain circumstances!
However, that’s not why I’m choosing it for this ranking.
The Marriage Mod adds a lot of flavor to the wedding ceremony, depending on what faction questlines you’ve finished.
There’s also a reception after the event.
A high-ranking member of the Thieves Guild will get guards in the shadows, a Companion will get two decorated thrones for the couple, and you’ll even get live musical performances if you have ties to the Bard College in Solitude.
The mod also features a built-in system to dress up your spouse for the ceremony and your married life. You can even change their default non-armored outfit!
