What are Emily’s heart events?

Here’s everything you need to know about starting Stardew Valley Emily’s heart events.

  • Two hearts
    • Go into Emily’s house.
  • Four hearts
    • Go to town on a sunny day, during any season other than winter.
  • Six hearts
    • Go into Emily’s house when she’s there.
  • Eight hearts
    • A letter will invite you to the Mayor’s Manor that same day during opening hours. It’s worth noting, this event will still be there on subsequent days if you miss it.
  • Ten hearts
    • A letter will invite you to meet Emily in the Secret Woods after 22:00 that night. You need a steel axe in order to break the large log blocking the entrance to the Secret Woods. Don’t worry if you don’t have a steel axe, whenever you manage to get in after 22:00 when it’s not raining or on a festival day, the event will still trigger.
  • Fourteen hearts
    • Leave your house between 05:00-08:20.

How to marry Stardew Valley’s Emily

As with all Stardew proposals, before you can get married you need to earn ten hearts of friendship with Emily and have given her a bouquet from Pierre’s shop at eight hearts of friendship. You’ll also need to have upgraded your farmhouse at least once, and have access to the tide pool to the east of the beach.

Once married, Emily will move into the farmhouse and set up her own room to the right of the bedroom – complete with her pet parrot. She’ll also get herself a nice little crystal garden where she goes to meditate and clear her head.

Emily may offer you gifts sometimes, which is nice. Here is what you can get:

Situation Gifts
Rainy mornings Cloth, wool, duck feather, refined quartz, bean hotpot
Rainy nights Rice pudding, blueberry tart, cookie, chocolate cake
Emily stays inside the house Cloth, wool, duck feather, refined quartz, bean hotpot, coffee, omni geode

What’s up with Stardew Valley Emily and Clint?

It’s no secret that Clint has a bit of a crush on Emily, but the sad news is that even if you don’t pursue her, they will never be together. Currently, bachelors and bachelorettes aren’t able to marry each other or other NPCs. There is something to note though; if you get Emily to eight hearts before you get Clint to six hearts, you won’t be able to complete Clint’s six-heart event due to him seeing you and Emily together.
