Final Fantasy 7 Remake: How to Get Each Bridal Candidate Outfit
Final Fantasy 7 Remake's Cloud dress event in Midgar's Wall Market makes a glorious return from the original, along with various options for Tifa's dresses and Aerith's dresses during the Don Corneo event. Like the original Final Fantasy 7, though, the process governing who ends up wearing what is pretty inscrutable unless you know the rules.
Tifa's is about a choice you make in Chapter 3, while the Cloud and Aerith dress choice depends on how you conduct yourself in Chapter 8. The Don Corneo event itself takes place during Chapter 9.
If you're aiming to get the Dressed to the Nines trophy, you'll need to acquire all nine dresses — three each for Cloud, Tifa, and Aerith. If you don't want to play through the game three times for each, you'll obviously need separate save files.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Tifa's Dresses
Determining what Tifa wears is the most straightforward and comes down to one specific conversation choice you make. First, you'll need to complete all six of Chapter 3's sidequests — including Lost Friends. That unlocks an event back at Tifa's and Cloud's apartment complex, which should be marked on your map.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake: What Would Suit Tifa Answers
If you're wondering how to answer Tifa's question in Chapter 3, here's how it goes.
During the conversation at the apartments, Tifa asks you a question, and you get three options. Each one is tied to a specific dress:
- Mature — the blue dress shown in trailers
- Sporty — long, leopard-print dress w/ hair in bun (pictured above)
- Exotic — black kung-fu-style robe
Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Aerith's Dresses
Picking Aerith's dress is a bit more involved, but still fairly simple. This process revolves around sidequests in Chapter 8.
Here's how it works.
- Complete 0-2 sidequests in Chapter 8 — basic pink dress (shown in the article's header image)
- Complete 3-5 sidequests in Chapter 8 — longer pink dress (shown above)
- Complete all sidequests in Chapter 8 — fancy red dress shown in trailers.
Some have noted Madam M gives you a clue as to what dress Aerith will wear based on how well she says Cloud helped the people of Sector 5, but I actually didn't talk to her to verify this.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Cloud's Dresses
And now we come to Cloud's dresses. Figuring these out is the most complicated, just like in the original. Cloud's dress gets determined by how you complete certain quests in Chapter 9. After you fight the Hell House in Corneo's Coliseum, you can pursue one of two quest branches.
The first involves Chocobo Sam, and the second revolves around Madam M. The third — Cloud's basic black dress from the trailer — just requires you to do neither set of quests.
It's not completely clear if you have to complete the squats mission "Burning Thighs" first, but some have reported it's necessary. Do it anyway, just in case.
Chocobo Sam's Quests: Unlocking The Party Never Stops
Here's how to get Chocobo Sam's quests "The Party Never Stops" and "A Dynamite Body." First, speak with Johnny during the first portions of the chapter to trigger the Vagabond Johnny event, and choose "Yeah" when prompted.
Gamble with Sam when he asks you to.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake heads or tails?
It doesn't matter which choices you make here. Sam wins if you call heads or tails. Don't say "no deal" if you want to continue on this route, though.
Madam M's Parlor
Choose the "Poor Man's Course" massage option at Madam M's parlor.
Aerith's Dress Question
Tell Aerith you think her dress is "alright."
Doing all this gets you Cloud's black dress with the blue bodice and bow.
Madam M's Quests
Madam M's quests "The Price of Thievery" and "Shear's Counterattack" require basically the opposite. You'll say "No" to Johnny if you speak to him early in the chapter. Or you could probably just ignore him too, but we spoke to him and said "No."
Chocobo Sam's Gamble
Choose not to gamble with Chocobo Sam ("No deal" is the option for that. Aerith does it instead, and he still wins).
Madam M's Parlor
Purchase the "Luxury Massage" service for 3,000 Gil at Madam M's parlor.
Aerith's Dress Question
Choose "It matters what I think?" when Aerith asks about her dress.
All this gets you the purple and white dress Cloud's wearing in the image at the top of this piece.
And that's that. Again, you won't be getting all nine dresses or the Dressed to the Nines trophy in one playthrough. If you don't really care about the trophy, though, you can just choose whatever dress you want each character to have and move right along. There's no major significance here.
