Bachelorettes

There are 10 candidates available for marriage if you are playing as the male main character. In order to get married you have to raise the person up to at least 9 hearts, view the events that trigger as you increase the number of hearts with that person, own at least a level 2 house, and get the blue feather.

Anissa | Candace | Harvest Goddess | Kathy | Luna | Maya | Phoebe | Renee | Selena | Witch

At the love confession event (at 7 hearts or so) your positive response to being told about the girl's love for you will lower affection with the other marriage candidates!

When you have increased the number of hearts Witch has to 3 she will start making a seasonal request that results in a gift for you.

  • Spring: Raspberry Juice. Reward is a Shining Silk
  • Summer: Ice Cream (any flavor). Reward is 9 Honeydew Seeds and 9 Pumpkin Seeds
  • Fall: Rice Ball and Vegetable Sandwich. Reward is 9 Morning Glory seeds and 1 Shining Wool Thread.
  • Winter: Egg Soup. Reward is 1 Cherry Tree Sapling and 9 Watermelon seeds.

She will only ask for the item(s) once per season, so you need to know about her request ahead of time and have the item ready in your rucksack. If you triggered the seasonal request, leave to get the item, return, and then try to give it to her outside of the event, she will just accept it as a normal gift.

The food that she requests can simply be purchased at the Oricana Inn or made using your own kitchen.
