A Garden Party Review: The Breaking Dawn Wedding

Everyone has been anticipating Bella and Edward’s wedding, and the Breaking Dawn nuptials didn’t disappoint. Although the movie has been receiving mixed reviews, we give the wedding details five stars. Here are a few ideas you can steal from the lovely Alice Cullen who planned Bella and Edward’s big day.

An Elegant, Long-sleeved Dress

Bella looked beautiful as she walked down the aisle in a long-sleeved, lace -back dress designed by Carolina Herrera. Alfred Angelo has designed a replica of the gown that only costs $799. The long sleeves and cut-out lace back are elegant, classic and beautiful. This gown would be perfect for a fall, winter or church wedding.

I love the back of this dress!

Host the Wedding at Home

The ceremony and reception took place at the Cullen home. The setting made the wedding personal and unique. This is a simple idea that anyone can use and personalize. Consider your parents’ homes, family members’ homes or even close friends’ homes. Some fun possibilities include beach houses, lake view homes and family farms.

This is a picture from the reception that takes place in the Cullen's backyard.

Use Tons of Flowers

The most breath-taking part of the Breaking Dawn wedding was the flowers. According to Blooming Envy LLC, the ceremony took place under 160,000 white wisteria that cascaded down from trees, and the aisle was lined with arrangements consisting of delphiniums, sweet pea, viburnum, ranunculus, Australian ferns and moss. The ceremony flowers also featured cherry blossoms and white lavender. The flowers set the tone of the wedding and provide a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony.

I love all the flowers used for the ceremony.

Decorate the Cake with Flowers

At the reception, Bella and Edward’s cake was decorated with roses, viburnum and sweet pea. The flowers make a simple cake extravagant.

The cake from the Twilight wedding is gorgeous.

We'd love to know, what did you think of the Twilight wedding? Are there any ideas you are dying to steal?
