Hello my darling Real Weddings brides. Happy Friday (yes, we know we usually do our Dazzling Dresses posts on Thursday but we’re mixing things up and posting on Friday instead)! With this extra hour of sunlight I’m in a particularly cheery mood this week. Let’s have some fun with today’s post!
Most brides find inspiration for their dress in fashionable women who went down the aisle before them, be it Grace Kelly, Jackie O, or more recently, Duchess Kate. Well, some even choose the big screen for their divine intervention… and in this unique instant, that cinema character was Bella Swan from Twilight.
I’m going to come out of the bridal closet and admit I’ve never jumped on the Twilight bandwagon. I haven’t read the books or seen the movies. I’m going to blame it on vampire fatigue, having endured this gothic trend once before during my younger years in the ’90s. I just can’t bear to sink my fangs in another blood-sucking romantic storyline. Sorry. I’m sure I’ll lose readers over that confession. But even so, I respect all of your passion for this trilogy. Be it Team Jacob or Team Edward, or whatever it is.
Clearly, I am outnumbered by the looks of the crowd that assembled in Britain this last weekend to celebrate the DVD release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1. From what I can tell from the photos, hundreds of women dressed in their bridal best came together at a HMV store in London in hopes to set the world record for longest chain of brides in one location. No dress critiques for this one… just check out the mass of white wear in a single place. Impressive ladies. Now if you can just get me interested in this Twilight phenom, you’ll really dazzle me.
Enjoy the rest of the pictures here!
