A wedding or marriage ceremony is the ceremony in which two people are united in marriage. Several weddings have been depicted in the Final Fantasy series.
In Conde Petie, the player must "marry" Zidane Tribal and Garnet Til Alexandros XVII, and optionally marry Vivi Ornitier and Quina Quen to gain access to the Iifa Tree. The marriage is valid only on the Outer Continent.
Seymour Guado forces Yuna to marry him in Bevelle. The party attempts to break up the wedding and rescue her but are held back by Yevon guards. Yuna tries to use the marriage as an attempt to send Seymour, but fails as he threatens to kill her guardians. Yuna breaks off the wedding after her guardians are threatened and jumps off the palace tower. She summons Valefor and heads to the Chamber of the Fayth. Afterward, Yuna and her guardians are put on trial and thrown into the Via Purifico.
Two characters can marry within Vana'diel. It is reportedly one of the most challenging activities to accomplish in the game. Players may choose to marry a member of the opposite gender. Racial differences are irrelevant, and interracial couples are not uncommon.
At the beginning of the game, Ashelia B'nargin Dalmasca and Rasler Heios Nabradia marry in what is called by many a political marriage to cement an alliance between their two kingdoms. Contrary to the beliefs of their people, they truly loved each other.
However, shortly after their wedding, Archadia leads an attack on Nalbina, and Rasler is killed during the fight. Ashe then fakes her own death by suicide after the murder of her father and loss of her kingdom. She then forms a resistance against Archadia for revenge, joining the party in their efforts.
Marriage system called "Eternal Bond" was implemented in patch 2.45. Interracial and same sex marriage are all possible.
At the start of the game, Noctis Lucis Caelum and Lunafreya Nox Fleuret are arranged to be married, with Noctis and his retinue setting off to meet Lunafreya in Altissia for the wedding. However, their journey is interrupted by Niflheim's invasion of Insomnia. During Leviathan's attack on Altissia, Lunafreya is killed while saving Noctis. Ten years afterward, Noctis sacrifices his life to become the True King and end the Starscourge plaguing Eos.
Venus forces Flora to marry Nils in Venus' City, but she loves Leon who was exile from the city. The party attends the wedding ceremony, but Leon barges inside and claims that he'll defeat Venus. She repels his attack, but Flora gets in-between Venus and Leon and begs her to forgive him. She'll do what she ask her to do, she'll marry Nils.
Venus takes this as Flora ordering her to let Leon go. She tells Venus that she really loves Leon, and she's not afraid of anything anymore, claiming that she's going out of this city. Venus tells her that she can't, but Flora takes Leon's knife and makes a scratch on her face. Now that Flora has a scar, she can't stay in Venus' City anymore and ask to be exile outside of the city walls. Venus refuses and the party intervenes, and Venus is defeated.
Yuna and Seymour's wedding scene appears in the game.
While there are no weddings, Rinoa and Yuna wear wedding dresses on one of their cards.
Yuna's wedding dress is featured as a Wardrobe Record where it is known as "False Bride".
