The Sims 4 Story Starter Kit: Backseat Wedding Planners

Hugh and Hao have been fierce rivals in the competitive world of business for many years now. Despite the rivalry, they’ve always gotten along just fine in their professional relationship so when a possible merger was put on the table, Hugh and Hao weren’t so quick to dismiss the idea. Merging their highly successful companies together could give them the funds and resources they needed to acquire smaller businesses and ultimately take a large portion of the market for themselves but the shareholders weren’t convinced it was a viable long-term move. After all, Hugh and Hao are elderly and about to retire. Who will run such a huge company in the future?

That’s when they came up with a brilliant idea: Hao’s daughter, Jun, and Hugh’s son, Sean, were both being prepared to take over their parents’ companies. They each had intimate knowledge of the inner workings of their respective companies. Together, they could co-run the merged company, but a strictly professional relationship could prove flimsy over time. They needed to cement Jun and Sean as lifelong partners to make such a risky business move work. A marriage between the two would surely accomplish that! Well… if Jun and Sean ended up liking each other, of course.

To their parents’ delight, Jun and Sean did like each other from the moment they were introduced. In fact, they fell completely in love with no extra encouragement from anyone. When Sean proposed to Jun, business strategy was the furthest thing from his mind. He knew Jun was the person he wanted to raise a family and grow old with. Jun felt the same about Sean and accepted his proposal without a moment’s hesitation. She knew she’d found her forever partner, too.

Both families were thrilled with the news but the warm fuzzy feelings eroded fast when the wedding planning got underway. Two very different cultures clashed; Jun’s parents insisted upon a traditional Chinese wedding with a formal tea ceremony. Sean’s parents wanted a big, flashy, North American style wedding. Jun’s mother, Meng, wanted to make the cake and food for the wedding but Sean’s mother, Elsie, wanted to go with the most expensive catering business in town that routinely did celebrity weddings. Elsie insisted she be the one to design Jun’s wedding gown and the whole wedding party’s attire; her vision was high end couture. Meng was appalled by Elsie’s tacky taste. To make matters worse, Sean’s little sister, Delilah, has made it her mission to be the most badly behaved brat in existence; she’s always been spoiled and is jealous of all the attention her brother’s getting. And Jun’s brother, Jian, keeps trying to sneak his Nintendo Switch into all the wedding events.

Sean and Jun don’t even feel like this is their wedding anymore. It’s become a war between tradition and spectacle, not a celebration of love. They still want to get married but neither of them want to walk down the aisle in the middle of all this conflict. That’s no way to begin a marriage. Can the soon-to-be-newlyweds talk sense into their squabbling families and take back control of their own wedding or would they be better off eloping at City Hall?
