According to Reelz Channel, they feel that they have unearthed the mystery of who has designed Bella’s wedding dress.
“We have it on good word that Caroline Herrera designed the dress of the year, which will be revealed in the next week or so.”
Somehow we don’t think that they will be revealing the dress so much as the name of the person who designed it. The dress itself will probably be a movie reveal.
Several years ago, Stephenie Meyer gave dress details to Lexicon reader Love 2 Dream who used to have a Bella’s Wedding Dress site. When that site was taken down, Love2Dream graciously gave the information to us so fans could still have it.
Stephenie’s description on the old Lexicon forums was, “I wish I still had the picture I based the description of Bella’s dress on, but it was lost in my fateful computer crash. Those of you who are going with the old fashioned look are on the right track. Two key words to aid in the search: art nouveau. It’s a simpler style than the frillier Edwardian stuff. Elegant white satin, cut on the bias, with long sleeves (the strapless thing is a very recent development. It wasn’t even popular when I was getting married, only 13 years ago, much less during the modest turn of the century). I search google images for the dress every now and then. I’ll let you know if I find something close one of these days.”
Love2dream based on Stephenie’s description, found the above images and asked if she was on the right track. Stephenie replied that the look was close, but not the exact photo that she had seen.
