Enter The Twilight Zone

If this set-up looks familiar to you, you must have watched the nuptial scene of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen in the Twilight film series. Now here’s a pop quiz: What’s the name of that film?

The Inspiration

So what is you are not a doe-eyed half-human and half-vampire brunette, or a dashing vampire who is thirsty for love and not human blood? The wedding scene from the movie The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 has also put us feeble mortals under its spell.

In a tribute to W&T brides – and if you happen to be a Twilight fan too – let us show you how to adapt the scene as your own.

Creating the Theme

If you can recall, the wedding between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s character is set amid luscious vegetation and overhanging white flowers. The colour scheme is a pleasing combination of green and white. On a white carpet rolled out across a neatly trimmed lawn, couples can exchange their vows during that time.

For the outdoor solemnisation, you can use vine leaves and small hardy white flowers consisting of baby’s breath for a clean look that can last in the heat. After the romantic solemnisation, your guests can retreat indoors where a more bewitching view awaits.

One can never have enough of greens, especially when they come in various shades and taste toothsome too. At the pastry table, the magic of the theme is given a yummy twist with a wonderful selection of customised green cake pops, macarons, cupcakes, mini buns and cookies that accompany the wedding cake.

The floral centrepieces on the guest tables follow the traditional bridal bouquet design with just a naughty tweak using wispy white feathers.


Doing it Yourself: Ideas and Tips

Print some famous quotes from Twilight on ribbons that you can tie to wedding favours or on paper which can be placed inside fortune cookies. Some of the quotes can be:

  • You don’t know how long I’ve waited for you.
  • And so the lion fell in love with the lamb.
  • I leave you alone for five minutes and the wolves descend.

Please don’t get someone to dress up as a vampire with fangs and cape as that will be overkill. You can instead get the bridesmaids and groomsmen to turn up sharply dressed in black.
