The Twilight Saga Exclusive: Experts Plan Bella's Wedding. Hair, Borrowed/Blue, Alice and Rosalie's Dress, Flowers

The Flowers
THE INSPIRATION: "'It smells wonderful!' I assured her—almost intoxicating, but not at all overwhelming... 'Orange blossoms… lilac… and something else—am I right?'”
—Bella, in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn

THE EXPERT SAYS: “The Twilight series is so classically romantic. I was inspired to create a timeless, whimsical, almost innocent
bouquet of white garden roses and freesia that reflects true love in its purest form, with a touch of the darker side of Bella’s desire coming through with hints of deep helleborus.”
—Rori Pierpont, creative director,

THE INSPIRATION: “Alice was back before I had taken two hundred breaths, in a dress that flowed down her slender body like a silvery waterfall.”
—Bella, in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn

THE EXPERTS SAY: “Alice is the fashionista to Bella’s tomboy, and we pictured Alice choosing a dress that's stylish but not overly so. The one-shoulder is a simple nod to her love of fashion (and a Thread signature!) and the flowing waves of silk chiffon over charmeuse lend the formality required for such a momentous occasion.”
—Beth Blake & Melissa Akey, designers, threaddesign.com

Rosalie’s Dress


THE INSPIRATION: “Rosalie glided past the bathroom door in a shimmery silver gown with her golden hair piled up in a soft crown on top of her head. She was so beautiful it made me want to cry.”
—Bella, in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn

THE EXPERTS SAY: “Rosalie stubbornly disapproves of Edward and Bella as a couple from day one, and we saw her choosing a relatively simple gown to display her opposition to the wedding. However, Rosalie is also notoriously proud of her beauty, so we knew she wouldn’t be able to resist adding a few glamorous touches to her ensemble, be it the gorgeous draping of silk crepe at the hip or the elegant shimmer of her crystal belt.”
—Beth Blake & Melissa Akey, designers, threaddesign.com

Something Borrowed, Something Blue


THE INSPIRATION: “Alice...slid both combs into my hair under the edge of the thick braids. ‘That's something old and something blue,’ Alice mused... ‘And your dress is new…‘ She flicked something at me... the filmy white garter landed in my palms. ‘That's mine and I want it back,’ Alice told me.”
—Bella, in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn

THE EXPERTS SAY: “The inspiration for Bella's garter was 'understated pretty meets vintage elegance.' It's a hybrid of Bella and Edward's distinct qualities: Bella is pretty, natural and classic. Edward is sparkling, vintage and captivating.”
—Claire Quigley, designer, journelle.com

"I envisioned a piece for Bella that looked like wildflower branches that her grandmother might have worn to her own wedding. We designed wild leaves and had them made in dark blue stones set into blackened silver metal, for an antique feel."
—Jennifer Behr, hair accessory designer, jenniferbehr.com

The Hair


THE INSPIRATION: "‘You can start braiding. I want it intricate. The veil goes here, underneath.’”
—Alice, in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn

THE EXPERT SAYS: “What is really beautiful about these updos is the romance paired with movement. Also, there's a complexity and duality in texture, much like Bella's own complexity, and the styles have many twists and turns, just like the story.”
—Adir Abergel, celebrity hair stylist, fekkai.com
