Carolina Herrera - Bella Swan's Twilight Wedding Gown On Sale

Replicas of Bella Swan's 'Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1' wedding dress have gone on sale.

The Carolina Herrera designed gown - worn by actress Kristen Stewart in the movie - provided the inspiration for the $799 dress adapted by designer Michael Shettel for the collaboration between Summit Entertainment and bridal retailer Alfred Angelo and Michael admitted keeping the price down was a struggle.

He said: "There were pricing issues to try to get it down to $799. That was the biggest issue more than design issues."

The dress features liquid satin instead of the silk used on the gown worn by Bella when she married her vampire love Edward Cullen in the film.

Carolina is also set to sell gowns which follow the same design as Bella's dress at her CHNY boutique and the designer recently revealed Kristen found trying on the dress for the first time an emotional experience.

She told Vogue.co.uk: "In the initial fitting when Kristen put the dress on and looked in the mirror, she was very moved. In that moment she was not an actress or a character in a film, she was a bride, and a happy one at that. It is always very important to make the bride happy, of course, and in this case I was delighted to do so. It was a very special moment for both Kristen and the character of Bella to share.

"A wedding dress is both an intimate and personal for a woman - it must reflect the personality and style of the bride. Bella's dress is romantic and filled with a timeless sophistication, very similar to the character. In a way, this dress served as a symbol of the character's coming of age and introduction into womanhood."
