Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Brides! Looking for that perfect wedding venue? We invite you to the Lilac Gardens and Homestead. The Homestead was once the home of Miss Lilac, a floral enthusiast whom decorated her lovely home in light pastels of purple and yellow. However, with no heirs to her private and intimate retreat, she donated her home to Sunset Valley, with a large contribution of 20,000 simoleans to re-vamp her home into the perfect wedding venue, because she was never able to have the perfect wedding herself.

Featuring:
1 Large public bathroom (2 stalls/3 sinks) to accommodate guests
1 mini kitchen (wooden pantry/sink)
Large split-level Lobby/entrance for relaxation and comfort
1 Party Room and Bar
1 Dining Area & Dance floor.
Backyard which includes garden and Arch to get married under, bridge to intimate island under Cherry blossom tree.



Lot Size: 30x30
Lot Cost: $94,045

If you like please thank, and see my other Community Lots!!

In addition, for some reason the game recognizes this lot as a pool; however, it is not and still usable for wedding ceremonies so just ignore it =P

Lot Size: 3x3

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I'm curious, how did you make the game recognise the lot as bookable (as a pool or otherwise)? I've tried building party venues and given up since they never show up as a location that can be booked by my sims.

Well, I tried having a wedding party there, but everyone showed up at my sim's home instead when she made the arrangement call from that venue lot. I ended up having to start over and have a private wedding there instead.

Still, I like this lot and I am happy to have it in my sim's town. Thank you.

To hold parties elsewhere, there's a separate option "Throw party at..." which then zooms out to map view and lets you select from a selection of some of the community lots.

The thing I'm having trouble with is getting my community lots to show up as being available to be booked that way. There's no obvious option that you can set anywhere.

I've tested to have a wedding at this venue and it worked fine, just make sure when you use the cell phone to call "throw party at" and then choose a community lot.

It's gorgeous. I've been looking for a way to give my sims their perfect weddings but was sorely disappointed with the lack of options the game provided.

This is the perfect solution and will be a beautiful lot in my neighbourhood.

Thanks so much!

I believe it is labeled as "pool" because of the pool tiles you used around a floral piece. Since sims are able to get in and out of pools without the use of a ladder now. Not that it matters, haha, just saying!

But, the lot is breath taking. I would love to have my wedding there~

Wow this is charming, I was just about to marry my power couple when I realized "who gets married and holds the ceremony and reception in their own back yard?" Well, just not my sims, that's who. Thank you so much!
