It seems that the themes are fixed according to the day - every day has a specific theme!↓ Jump below to the list of themes by day
Get Heart Crystals As A Reward
As a reward for taking a photo everyday, you'll be given Heart Crystals. This is the main currency of this event. It seems that you're given more Crystals depending on the quality of your photo.
The More Furniture, The Better
In general, Reese prefers having more furniture! Throw minimalism out the window here - the more furniture you place, the more crystals you'll get!
For more detailed info on how crystals are awarded, check out our Heart Crystals Guide here.
Use Time Travel To Get More Items & Heart Crystals
By changing the time through the Nintendo Switch's settings, you can get Reese to give you reward items again. You can also collect more Heart Crystals as well. Even after June ends, you can get Heart Crystals by traveling back in time!

Buy A Max Of 8 Items A Day
The maximum amount of items you can buy from Cyrus with Heart Crystals per day is limited to 8! If you save up all your hearts and wait for the last day of June to buy, you might be out of luck, so buy your items ahead of time!
So why exactly does the Wedding Season take place in June? In actuality, this event's name in Japanese is 'June Bride', and it's based off a long-standing European tradition of favoring the month of June to hold a wedding! Despite the tradition's European origins, it has caught on in Japan as well.

List Of Photo Themes Per Day
※ Listed below are the themes which we have seen so far. This list will be updated if we find more.

All themes for the wedding season event seem to be fixed. This means each day will have a specific theme. First, Ceremony and Reception will alternate, with new items being added each day. Then, on the 6th, a new theme will be unlocked. After day 7, the three themes of Chic, Garden, and Cute will rotate!
6th Day - Reception-Style Party
The 6th time you do the event, you'll make a reception but you'll also be asked to invite villagers to your island as well! Note that for this, you won't be required to take a photo, just set up as great a party as you can. As a reward, you'll get an Arch, Crystals, and a special Reese & Cyrus Photo Plate!
7th Day - Chic & Sophisticated
On the 7th day, you'll get a bit of a change of pace. You'll move locations and get a request for a "chic" style, with brown, beige, and black colors. You'll also get a recipe for a Wedding Wand from Cyrus. From this day on, it seems all wedding furniture becomes available to purchase from Cyrus!
From the 7th day, you'll gain access to the furniture color customization feature. Use this to match the colors that the bride wants for her shoot!

Photo Taking Tips
Using The Same Item Over And Over Works!
If your main goal is just to collect Heart Crystals, placing the same piece of furniture over and over is totally fine. The number of furniture pieces you placed determines how many crystals you get, so make sure to place a lot!
Place Furniture Symmetrically
When placing furniture, try to aim for a sense of symmetry in your designs. This will really improve the overall look of your photos!
Pieces Of Furniture Per Heart Crystals
※ This information is still under investigation and will be updated regularly.
|Furniture Pieces||Until the 6th Day||After the 7th Day|
You'll get more heart crystals the more furniture you place during photo shoots. You'll get from 5 to 11 heart crystals. After day 7, you can get 13 or 15 as well. Place as much furniture as you can to maximize the amount of hearts you get!
