Runway favorites Monique Lhuillier, Erin Fetherston, Max Azria, Badgley Mischka, Zac Posen, and even “Project Runway” winner Christian Siriano have submitted sketches of how they imagine the anticipated “Twilight” wedding gown.

In the book “Eclipse,” the wedding dress is first envisioned by Bella, and then later described more in detail by Alice Cullen:

“I saw myself in a long skirt and a high-necked lace blouse with my hair piled up on my head.” (pg. 277)

“It was my Anne of Green Gables vision all over again…. ‘Nineteen-eighteen?’ I guessed. “More or less,” [Alice] said, nodding. ‘Some of it is MY design, the train, the veil…’ She touched the white satin as she spoke. ‘The lace is vintage.'” (p. 614)

Twilight Lexicon also quotes author Stephenie Meyer further describing the dress:

“Two key words…art nouveau. It’s a simpler style than the frillier Edwardian stuff. Elegant white satin, cut on the bias, with long sleeves…”
