Dear Brides to be, girls hoping to be brides to be & Bella in the last part of Eclipse and first few pages of Breaking Dawn,
Once upon a time, Aunties Moon & UC answered answered a letter from a Twi Bride to Be on how to best adorn her wedding with Twilight-related ideas & items and we had some really unique ideas to share. I suggest catching up on that letter if it’s been awhile or you never read it. Here are a few highlights to remind you of our brilliant ideas:
Glitter: Don’t forget to adorn yourself in glitter. You need to be a sparkling beauty for all your guests. If The Stuward is a unique guy (and it sounds like he is) he might want to adorn himself in glitter as well. For added effect, why don’t you have his chest exposed slightly- just have the buttons done half-way and have his jacket open. If you have the extra money, dim the lights in the room & have a spotlight shine directly on his chest (that way the audience will really see him sparkle)
Music: Walk down the aisle to something from the Twilight soundtrack. It depends on what you’re like. If you want a party atmosphere, we suggest Perry Farrell’s “Go all the way.” If you’d like something more somber, maybe walk down to “Clair de Lune.” That’s probably a good choice as it’s pretty unique and probably hasnt’ been done in many weddings. If you want my honest opinion, I’d suggest walking down to “Never Think” by Robert Pattinson. How beautiful would it be to walk toward your Stuward hearing the guy who played Edward sing a song? I have chills thinking of the moment…
Of course we ended the letter with a strong suggestion for those readers who don’t yet understand s-a-r-c-a-s-m to NOT listen to our advice. I made this statement:
Don’t ever ever ever ever ever mirror your wedding after a book about vampires.
And I have to say, I take it back….. in this case:
The wedding planned explained:
We mainly took our inspiration from the fourth book in The Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer, Breaking Dawn, in which the two characters Bella and Edward get married. The wedding was described as taking place at the house where Edward and his family live in the woods surrounded by all white flowers. We also took inspiration from the iconic cover of the first book where hands are holding an apple. Apples were used as escort cards, candleholders, a cake topper, and our signature beverage, hot apple cider…..For the bouquet, we used peonies, roses, lisianthus, dusty miller and bluporum tied with a simple white ribbon that had the words “so the lion fell in love with the lamb” written by our calligrapher, Calligraphy Katrina.
Notice there’s no glitter, no red ribbons & no fake blood. (What kind of Twilight-themed wedding IS this!?)
Would YOU do this!?
Dreaming of throwing my wedding again (and speeding up that “Find Moon a husband” project so I can pick out my Breaking Dawn inspired Bridesmaid dress. I’m pushing for something reminiscent of French lingerie… 🙂 ),
Hop on over to the wedding site where this wedding is mentioned. There are more pictures and it’s TRULY breathtaking!
Someone sent this to me and I TOTALLY forget who. I’m sorry. I suck. Forgive me person who sent this to me!?
