There is no friendship penalty for giving bouquets to dating rivals as long as you have not already married someone (or proposed marriage).
This will also happen when you are engaged, and not yet married.
Marriage is possible only with a villager who is marked as "single" in the Social tab.Before proposing marriage, you need to develop a deepening friendship with your intended partner, which eventually requires the use of special items that you must acquire.When the ceremony is completed, you and your spouse appear at the farmhouse at A. (on the porch, or if you have restarted or reloaded the game day, inside the house).The day then proceeds as it normally does when you are married.At 13/12 Hearts, there is a random chance to obtain a Stardrop from your spouse, as a token of their love.
Once married, your spouse will immediately put their room into your house.Friendship with your spouse can now rise to the (hidden) level of 13 hearts, but decays by 20 points per day whenever there is no contact between you two.The wedding ceremony does not take place on a day that another event takes place in the town square.If there comes a day that you want to ask for someone's hand in marriage, you'll need to give them a 'Mermaid's Pendant'. During Winter, it does not rain, so he will not appear then unless you use a Rain Totem.Don't worry, everyone in Pelican Town understands the significance of the amulet. He will not sell the pendant unless your farmhouse has been upgraded and you are best friends with an eligible villager.In such cases, the wedding is delayed until there is a day without such an event.
