1. At the beginning of the chapter, Bella wakes up from a nightmare about immortal children. As we know, the dream foreshadows the events to come later in the story. However, it seems coincidental that the first time she has this nightmare it is the night before her wedding. Do you think that there is any significance to this? Or, do you think it is just Bella being Bella?
I never though of this, but I think that this is the last night that she actually sleeps through before conciveing Renesmee. So, her last dream before she is pregnant is about the baby... Maybe.
2.Bella is stunned when Rosalie offers to help Alice get Bella ready. She remarks, “I had never been Rosalie’s favorite person…and here I was, callously throwing away everything she wanted in life like it was garbage.” What do you think motivated Rosalie to be nice to Bella in this instance?
I think that Rosalie has warmed up to Bella since the night she told her the story. Bella undesrtood the reason why Rosalie was like that, an Rosalie understood that Bella just wanted Edward. So, the day of the wedding is just a follow to the truce between them
3.Renée says that Alice would not let her or Charlie do anything for Bella, except give her the hair combs from her grandma. She remarks, “Every time we tried, she all but ripped our throats out.” From Edward and Bella’s visit to Florida in Eclipse, we know that Renée is almost as observant as Bella when it comes to the Cullens. So, do you think Renée was remarking about how “attune” Alice seems to be with everyone’s actions? Or, do you think she was simply remarking that Alice wanted to do everything herself?
I don't think that she remarked anything. She would talk to Bella about it.
4.During the ceremony, Bella realizes that she had been silly about being afraid to get married. And, as Bella looks into Edward’s eyes, she says, “[I] knew that I was winning, too.” Why do you think she finally realizes that marrying Edward was a good thing?
Of course. Because she wanted him happy, and it was the moment of the most happiness for him. But, just like later she says about Renesmee, she discover herself that she was happy too. And that discovery is not reasonable, is unconcius
