Bella's wedding gown, designed for the movie Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 by Carolina Herrera is sure to set a new trend in wedding gowns, especially among Twi-hards.  Dare we say we may see a change from the strapless gowns of the last five years and a move toward a more covered up look with a sexy lace back? I for one am all for options for brides and there are some brides who will be happy to see this change to a more covered up look.  The sleeves with tiny buttons and lace look intricate and delicate.

Alfred Angelo in concert with the original's designer, Carolina Herrera and Summit Entertainment agreed to create a replica of Bella Swan's wedding gown so that Twi-Hards everywhere can walk down the aisle dressed as their favorite heroine. 

Sure to set off a new rash of theme weddings based on the movies, Bella's gown is romantic and sexy at the same time.  At the time the agreement was signed there was some talk that the secrecy of the dresses design was kept to four key people and that the agreement had been 'signed in blood'...that's how serious the secrecy on the project was.  But the movie is out now, and the need for secrecy is over! If you head to the Alfred Angelo web site you can enter to win his copy of Bella's gown.

What are the differences in the dresses? Angelo's dress is made of liquid satin not silk and the lace is similar but not exact.  At a price point of $799 the dress is sure to be a hit with Twi-hards and non-Twi-hards both.

I know, if I weren't already married... this dress really makes you want to get married just to wear it! Of course I'd need some serious working out to look good in it, but it's a real inspiration! She looked great in it! It is just how every woman wants to look on their wedding day! (And check out the post called 'bridal braid' don't you love that hair?)
