  1. Out of a dream

    While Bella's dream day won't be re-created on the silver screen in "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," one thing is for certain -- an engagement! We asked the industry's top experts to give us their ideas for Bella and Edward's pending nuptials. Take a look at the dramatic invitations, gorgeous cake and more stylish details they envisioned for the fairy-tale wedding.

  2. The wedding cake

    The inspiration: "I was blinded by flashbulbs as we held the knife over a spectacular cake--too grand, I thought, for our relatively intimate group of friends and family." --Bella, in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn"

    The expert says: "We extended the 'spectacular' cake's height by elevating each tier with bands of sugar red roses. The color signifies blood, while the white icing matches the couple's skin. I didn't feel that Bella and Edward would respond to a white-on-white theme, and used chocolate frosting as the sensuous motif -- at least mortals respond very strongly to the scent of chocolate!" --Ron Ben-Israel, owner and baker, weddingcakes.com (Altered image courtesy Ron Ben-Israel Cakes) Back to slideshow navigation
  3. The invitations

    The inspiration: "Edward lay next to me and held my hand. 'August thirteenth?' he asked casually after a few minutes of comfortable silence." --Bella, in "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse"

    The expert says: "This design captures the essence of Bella and Edward: dramatic and passionate with a hint of dark elegance. It incorporates a variety of printing techniques and materials, making it both complicated and harmonious, like their relationship. The color palette symbolizes the chemistry between them: red is passion and a nod to the vampires, while espresso is mysterious and gold represents luxury and elegance. Their relationship is so unique, their invitation had to match!" --Ceci Johnson, founder and creative director, cecinewyork.com

  4. The decor

    The inspiration: "I was distracted by the profusion of white blossoms that hung in garlands from everything in the room...dripping with long lines of white gossamer ribbons. But I tore my eyes from the bowery canopy and searched across the rows of satin-draped chairs...until I found him at last, standing before an arch overflowing with more flowers." --Bella, in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn"

    The expert says: "The passion between Bella and Edward is electrifying; their wedding needed to be just as magical and enthralling. Romance, fantasy and drama--each are key elements in the pair's extraordinary story and warranted creative interpretation filled with magnificent florals, shimmering stars, dreamlike fog and more. The couple's reception called for a change in mood after the ceremony--crystal chandeliers, floral candelabras, and spectacular lighting." --Preston Bailey, event designer, prestonbailey.com (Courtesy Preston Bailey) Back to slideshow navigation
  5. The wedding bands

    The inspiration: "I didn't realize I was crying until it was time to say the blinding words. 'I do,' I managed to choke out in a nearly unintelligible whisper... When it was his turn to speak, the words rang clear and victorious. 'I do,' he vowed." --Bella, in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn"

    The expert says: "Bella's ring is romantic but unusual; the ornate gold vine design (with 372 white diamonds!) matches her complex personality. Edward's band is a mixture of gold and hidden rubies, which evoke his secret powers." --Neil Lane, jewelry designer, neillanejewelry.com
