I am an admitted Twilight fan! I was so excited to see the new Breaking Dawn Part I movie this past weekend. Not only because I love the books, but also the first twenty minutes of the movie focused on the wedding of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. Below are some beautiful details and information about the wedding and how you can get Bella and Edward's wedding look.
Let's start with the wedding invitation, as that is the first way your guests get to experience and see the "style" and look and feel of your wedding. Bella and Edward's invitation was classic and traditional and had a back layer of silver, which I felt gave it a rich and elegant feel. Designed by Connor Fine Engraver & Stationer in New York, the wedding invitation was engraved and printed on 100% cotton paper.
Bella's wedding dress was magical and looked elegant in the outdoorsy and "Midnight Summer's Dream" wedding details. Designed by Caroline Herrera for the movie, you can now purchase her dress from Alfred Angelo.
And OH those SHOES that her sister-in-law Alice picked for her. They are designed by Caroline Herrera for Manolo Blahnik and can be purchased at Neiman Marcus. This shoe, named The Swan, is a gorgeous shoe with a little bling and fun detail for pictures. I LOVE this shoe and may have to buy the black version or pink version this year for holiday parties.
Bella's gorgeous hair clip, which was given to her by her parents, can be purchased at Hot Topics. I loved that it was her "old" and "blue".
The wedding ceremony scene was out of a dream. What a magical and gorgeous palette of white with the green of the moss-covered stumps that lined the aisle which came to life as she proceeded down the aisle.
The wedding reception was as magical as the wedding ceremony with lots of candlelight, green linens and branch centerpieces with taper candles. The flowers used were wisteria, delphinium, sweet pea, vibirnum, different mosses, fern and ranunculus. The centerpieces almost felt like they came to life on the tables. Terry Polastek was the floral designer for the wedding and she did an amazing job of setting a gorgeous scene.
And my final picture is of the amazing and very large wedding cake. Much like a little wedding in April of Kate and William back in April, the wedding cake was a large statement piece.
The wedding was a beautiful part of the book and for me it was so much fun to see the details of the book come to life on the big screen!
