Twilight Wedding Watch: Bella’s Wedding Dress Revealed!
we can’t wait for the first glimpse of Bella and Edward’s wedding day in the upcoming movie The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, and more importantly, we can’t wait to see Bella’s wedding dress! Kristen Stewart told us that Twilight author Stephenie Meyer is “absolutely in charge” of the designer details—and now Twi-hards have a sneak peek at her vision for the gown! Illustrations by Young Kim from Meyer’s new book The Twilight Saga: The Official Illustrated Guide, first released by EW.com, show Bella in two dresses. One design features a sleeveless, drape-necked gown, and the second (inset) is a long-sleeved, belted look with an intricate veil.

In Eclipse, Bella's dress is described as an early 1900s design (which complements her antique engagement ring) with friend and Maid of Honor Alice Cullen's modern tweaks to the train and veil. "You look like you just stepped out of an Austen movie," Bella's mother says to the bride-to-be when she spies her in the gown in the final book, Breaking Dawn. "It's gorgeous! So graceful, so elegant."
Monique LhuillierLhuillier's creation is a mermaid-style dress with lace detailing. The reworked take on a gown from the 1920s features a silk sash and high neck with cap sleeves.
Erin FetherstonFetherston's interpretation has a high-neck, puff sleeves and lace bustier. Fetherston put her signature ethereal touch on the two-tiered body with a tulle and lace underlayer.
Brian ReyesBrian Reyes envisions the fabric as a slightly tarnished bone color. The silhouette is a long skirt with a ruffled blouse and lace diamond inserts. The inspiration is a youthful spin on early 20th century Edwardian era elegance.
