The Twilight Extravaganza, Breaking Dawn, the wedding, the design, the dress …

If you have been to the cinema and seen the latest Twilight, Breaking Dawn Part 1, you will have seen the wedding scene in its full glory. You cannot deny that Bella Swan, the fictitious character from the remarkably successful Twilight movies, makes a beautiful bride, awkwardness aside. 

So lets get onto the wedding, the juicy stuff!! The outside woodland styled wedding was surrounded by willow like trees which sheltered the guests and the alter. From the branches of what might have been all of the trees were white blossoms, which made the setting feel somewhat breathtaking to watch. The guests sat on long oak benches, which looked as if they were cut straight from a tree, with green ‘branch’ backs so guests could lean back should they need to take it all in. There was simple shrubbery like foliage at the ends of each seating row and the aisle was the natural woodland floor.

The alter was the spectacle! Curved with white blossoms intertwined around the structure, it started off fairly minimalistic on the two sides, but became a huge ordeal at the top of the alter. A true centrepiece for this organic wedding. 

What most people were interested in were Carolina Herrara dress which cost $35,000. No doubt should you want this exact dress, the cost will dramatically lunge upwards for its increased publicity and popularity and uncanny similarity to  the dress worn by maid of honour Pippa Middleton for the Royal Wedding in April.

custom fit gown which is made from crepe satin and French Chantilly lace. But the feature of this dress is the back. The panel with delicate scrolled embroidery and was designed by Carolina to be a ‘romantic’ surprise. Carolina Herrara designed dress is studded with buttons from the neckline to the hemline – 152 – in total, in a remarkably similar style to Pippa Middleton’s now famous maid of honour dress. The stunning back of the dress showcases a sheer

The dress was one of ten sketches submitted to the directors of the movie by Carolina. The handmade creation- which was custom fit for Kristen Stewart, took Ms Herrera and four seamstresses six months to complete.

One of the first scenes in the movie are when Bella tries on these bridal shoes and goodness … my jaw dropped and my heart sunk! These silk, white Manolo Blahnik shoes are embellished with the most fabulously designed jewels. As it is #TuesdayShoesday, theses are definitely worth sharing.

If you haven’t been to see the movie yet, I recommend doing so! Although the story is dissapointing, and the acting is a little cringe worthy at time – you cannot tarnish the Twilight brand – and the Wedding scene is incomparable!!!
