*Bella's Wedding Dress* - Dream Come True

I had another dream come true today... I got to try on Bella's Wedding Dress! Yay! I am so excited. It was so great! A wonderful moment for a Twilighter to wear this dress. It is absolutely gorgeous and super comfy!

My best friend Gaby went with me to Alfred Angelo and we had so much fun. Not only did I want to try on Bella's dress but I would love to renew my wedding vows with my hubby and since I am a fan how perfect would it be to wear Bella's Wedding Dress! 

The store only had ONE DRESS and it was the dress that was on the mannequin so they had to take it off. It is also a Size 10 so it was a little big. Regardless I got to try it on and take pictures! :)

I really wanted to blog about the whole experience and post the pictures at the same time but I am just TOOOO excited and want to share all the pictures with you. I will still write a blog our twi-adventure because it's a funny story. I totally will but for now I am just posting the pictures. 

Check out all the pictures on Twilighters Dream.

Bella's Wedding Dress can be found at Alfred Angelo. For details on the dress, click here

Bella's Wedding Dress

Bella's Wedding Dress will soon be available for purchase! Wouldn't it be so awesome to walk down the aisle in her dress? I love it and would love to re-new my vows in this dress. It is absolutely gorgeous. 

I will be checking with my local Alfred Angelo to see when they will be receiving this dress. I can't wait to check it out in person! See it, try it on, take pictures and IF I'm lucky enough buy my own! Yay!!! *crossing fingers*

Here are some pictures from the Alfred Angelo website. Carolina Herrera designed an absolutely flawless dress that is breathtaking! The dress retails for $999.00. Bella looked so gorgeous walking down the aisle as a Bride to join hands with her Groom forever!

A wedding dress wouldn't be complete without the PERFECT shoes! You can also buy your own pair of Bella's Wedding Shoes at Neiman Marcus. They are VERY pricey!!! But absolutely gorgeous.

The shoes retail for $1,295.00. They're are more than the dress! I think I would go for the reception look where Bella wore white tennis shoes. They are super comfy and in true K. Stew fashion! Now if I had a ton of twi-cash stashed then I would think about getting them BUT this Twilighter will keep Dreaming!!! :)

One piece of Bella's Wedding attire that I already have which is my new favorite piece of my Twilight Collection  is her hair comb. I absolutely love this. You can find it at Hot Topic for $28.00. For costume jewelry this is a very well made piece. I love it! I wore it to the Midnight Premiere of Breaking Dawn!

For now I will enjoy my hair comb and keep dreaming about Bella's dress and shoes. Remember Twilighters Dreams Do Come True so who know's what the future will bring! :)

Thank You, Thank You!

I've give major kudos to Bill Condon tonight for his genuis adaption of Breaking Dawn. I have to also give EPIC kudos to Melissa Rosenberg and Stephenie Meyer!!! Melissa did a fantastic job with the screenplay yet again!! And without Stephenie this whole Saga would not have been possible. There are so many factors that made BD this great... but between the Director, Screenwriter, Creator/Executive Producer I'd say they are the reason I loved it so much!! Thank you so much!! :)

Only 10 Hours til Breaking Dawn

"You’ll be my sister officially
in ten short hours…
it’s about time you get over
this aversion to new clothes."

Alice Cullen, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 3, p.40

It's almost time!

Thank goodness I have work today to distract me from an hourly countdown to the movie tonight. OME! I am so excited. I can't believe that after work TODAY I will be getting ready to go to the MIDNIGHT PREMIERE of BREAKING DAWN!!!

Yay! It's almost time! :)

24 Hours til Breaking Dawn

"My last night as Isabella Swan.
Tomorrow night, I would be Bella Cullen.
Though the whole marriage ordeal
was a thorn in my side,
I had to admit that I liked the sound of that."

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 2, p. 30


We've waited and waited and FINALLY
the Premiere is here!
I can't wait to SPARKLE up and head to
the theater with my girls!

Whoop Whoop!
Tonight we will be getting dressed for the
Wedding of the Century!

Are you ready?! :)

2 Days til Breaking Dawn

"Bachelor parties are designed
for those who are sad to see
the passing of their single days.
I couldn’t be more eager to
have mine behind me.
So there’s really no point….
I’ve been waiting a century
to marry you, Miss Swan."

Edward Cullen, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 2, p. 24, 28

we’ve been through this and through this.
know it will be hard,
but this is what I want.
I want you, and I want you forever.
One lifetime is simply not enough for me."

Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 2, p. 27
