Twilight Lovers: Buy Bella’s Wedding Dress!

Hey, Twilight-loving brides:

Here it is! (Larger shots below.)

Obviously, there was much fuss about Bella Swan’s wedding dress before The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 opened in theaters this past weekend. Other than the birth scene and the, um, honeymoon scene, shall we say, it was one of the most anticipated moments of the entire movie: What would she wear to walk down the aisle and finally marry Edward?

Also obviously, everyone involved in the movie was super hush-hush about the gown, though they did eventually throw the gasping masses a little bone by announcing this past summer that Carolina Herrera (one of our most favorite designers, probably ever) was to design the gown. It kept everyone mildly satisfied for a little while, but only when the movie opened on Friday were people finally able to actually see it.

Very generously, now, you can more than see it—you can buy it! Starting today, $799 authorized replicas of the gown Bella wore to tie the eternal (seriously) knot with Edward are now available at 400 bridal salons across the country, 67 of them being Alfred Angelo stores (the same company who sold Elizabeth Taylor’s gown from Father of the Bride, in 1950). And good news: We’ve got one of those right here in Cherry Hill.

So what does everyone think? Do we like it? Is it what we expected? Did we want something different? And if you get in your car, drive to Cherry Hill and try on the dress, we’re going to have to demand that you send us a picture. Or at the very least, give us your review in the comments.
