Breaking Dawn Part 1 - Wedding Dress

Ok, so it's the weekend after the hugely anticipated Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1.  And, yes, I did see the movie opening weekend.  I mean who could avoid it.  It was playing every half hour at some theaters!

I was really looking forward to the wedding scene.  As probably most wedding professionals, I wanted to see all the details.  I think I was more focused on all the surroundings that I didn't listen to their vows.  I may just have to go see it again...

Bella's wedding attire has been talked about since the first book was released.  Fans have been envisioning what her dress would look like and now here it is...

The wedding dress retailer, Alfred Angelo, now has the replica dress for sale starting at $799.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, Carolina Herrera, the designer of the dress, will be including the design in her 2012 collection as well. Differences in the two gowns may be in the fabric, trim and other details.

The shoes, Manolo Blahnik Swan Embellished Satin Pump, were just glamorous!  Totally impractical for clumsy Bella but absolutely stunning with the dress.  And with a price tag of over $1200 a bit of a splurge.

Other accoutrements included Bella's hair comb, designed by The Gilded Lily.  Replicas for this piece range in price from $29.99 all the way up to $3999.
