Culture: How much would you pay for a Twilight wedding gown?

  • $799 price tag to buy a wedding dress from Twilight source
  • » Talk about high-end merchandising! To be clear, according to CostHelper, this wouldn’t fall into the upper range of wedding dress prices; $500-$1000 would be considered “mid-range.” The gown is being sold in sizes from women’s 0-30, which is nice, as not everybody who might want to dress like Kristen Stewart therefore inherits her svelte-ness. We admit a broad ignorance of weddings and romantic vampire-related fiction, so we’ll turn it over to you — anybody excited to wear a Twilight-inspired wedding dress? It is a nice looking dress, we’ll say that.

Seven million people have watched this video for the song, and they didn’t even think about the Grammys. (It helps that the people in this wedding are particularly talented.) source
