Can’t get enough of The Twilight Saga? Do you love it so much, in fact, that you want to wear the same wedding gown as Bella Swan (played by Kristen Stewart) is in the upcoming movie Breaking Dawn – Part 1? The good news is that Alfred Angelo is already working on a replica of the wedding dress.
What Does the Dress Look Like?
Although we have seen bits and pieces of the very top of the dress, pictures revealing the whole entire gown that will be used for the Swan-Cullen wedding have not yet been released. People who have read the book series know that we should be expecting an old-fashioned appeal, however. What could be more appropriate when you’re marrying a vampire who has lived longer than a century?
What we do know so far about Bella Swan’s wedding dress is that it was designed by Carolina Herrera, according to E!Online. Although some have been skeptical about this choice of a designer, she is also considered a very influential designer. Herrera has done designs for Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. She also designed both Renee Zellweger and Mariska Hargitay’s wedding gowns, which were both stunning.
Celebuzz reports that the series’s author, Stephenie Meyer, said [of Bella Swan’s dress], “It has a vintage feel, but at the same time, there’s an edge to it. It’s really beautiful.” Based on Meyer’s description, we can expect the wedding dress to be elegant and traditional enough to complement the antique oval engagement ring that Edward gave Bella in the movie Eclipse.
When will the Alfred Angelo Replica Gown be Available?
According to E!Online, Bella Swan’s wedding gown will be available in Alfred Angelo stores and other bridal retailers that carry the designer’s dresses in late November 2011. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 has a U.S. release date of November 18th. You can expect to see the replica of the dress in stores shortly after you see Bella Swan wear it on the big screen when she becomes Mrs. Cullen.
If you’re a Twilight fan, you already know that this is one of the most anticipated moments of the whole entire series. For most, the dress will be as noteworthy as the royal wedding dress, which Alfred Angelo is also currently working on. Even if you’re not a fan of the book or movie series, the dress still may offer some appeal if you’re looking for a charming vintage wedding gown.
Keep in mind that it might not be the best option if you’re looking for a unique dress, however. We can expect many brides-to-be who are fans of the series to be interested in the dress.
