Why didn't Bella get a chance to see herself in the mirror before the wedding? Any thoughts?

i have no idea honestly. Maybe because Alice was just so excited about the wedding plans. So it just slipped her mind. we all know how alice can get.
And i think it was good becuase then Edward was able to show Bella how she looked. and it was perfect. Because in a way she saw what he sees in her everyday.

Oh me and my friend found this Dress when we were in Seattle for the Breaking Dawn Concert Signing so i thought i would share it somewhat has era flair. With the lace and even the shoes somewhat. And then their is the parasol. So check it out.
OMG that short dress is so Alice! She'd be soooo excited.

We even found a dress that alice might like for herself lol. We made sure we got the shoes in the picture.

OMG U R AWESOME! That is almost exactly like the dress I pictured (definately the train was the same) but after seeing all these different dresses I can't think of what my version looked like. :cry:

lilyannlou, I pictured her dress a bit like that too.

I can't find any pictures of what I imagined, but I thought it would be a bit bigger, like a wider skirt or something, and with lace sleeve things.

When Renee says (something like) "You look like you've just stepped out of an Austen film" it makes me think that this dress wasn't very modern at all, but really old-fashioned.

I imagined Bella's dress to be similar to this: ... yleID=2281
Bella describes her skirt as an upside down calla lily and this reminded me of that.

This could be another possibility: ... yleID=1636
or this ... yleID=1616

Old fashioned with a modern twist. What do you all imagine the bridesmaid dress to look like? It's silver, but other than that, there's not much description. Isn't Edward's tux described as light gray?

Sorry fellow Twilighters. Geocities free web hosting is no more. I'm trying to find our wedding dresses a new home, but in the mean time you can still send me dresses IF THEY fulfill the following requirements!

I wish I still had the picture I based the description of Bella's dress on, but it was lost in my fateful computer crash. Those of you who are going with the old fashioned look are on the right track. Two key words to aid in the search: art nouveau. It's a simpler style than the frillier Edwardian stuff. Elegant white satin, cut on the bias, with long sleeves (the strapless thing is a very recent development. It wasn't even popular when I was getting married, only 13 years ago, much less during the modest turn of the century).

Eclipse p 614: "Anne of Green Gable"-ish, more or less 1919, vintage lace, veil and train are Alice's design

You can see Stephenie's examples here (until they find a new home).

This dress is absolutly amazing. I love the lace. Do you have any idea where it's from (designer, what store, etc)?

I can see Bella in this type of dress. Really pretty!
