With all the insane wedding merchandising going on with Breaking Dawn, I thought talking about book weddings would be a great discussion post!
I mean, let’s be honest: I could talk about weddings all day long. My wedding, other people’s weddings, celebrity weddings. Why not add on book weddings too (and maybe shamelessly drop a couple of my wedding pics in this post to boot)? 😉
Discussion: Book Weddings
A few factoids about the Breaking Dawn wedding real quick (I can’t help myself):
1. You, yes YOU, can buy Bella Swan’s wedding dress from Alfred Angelo’s for about $800.
2.The real Swan/Cullen wedding would have cost around $38,000, with the majority of the budget going to flowers (Duh. See picture to left).
3. My prediction: Next year, every wedding magazine on the face of the planet will have a “How to Have a Twilight Wedding” feature. This movie is going to make millions in merchandise alone…
On to other book weddings now:
1What book weddings have you read and loved?
The Anne of Green Gables wedding chokes me up every time! Plus, there’s a great wedding in Sense and Sensibility. I’m such a junkee for that emotional wedding high.
2What books would you have liked to see a wedding in?
Personally, I think a wedding could be included in almost any book… Ok, maybe not any book, but it could certainly help out a few. Like maybe a nice quiet ceremony at the end of Mockingjay to soften up the conclusion to the books. I mean a few words exchanged between them under a tree would have sufficed. (Throw us a bone, Collins!)
Also, Harry Potter. I would have wanted to see Ron and Hermione exchange vows. Did they do a double wedding with Harry and Ginny? …we’ll never know.
3Just for fun, what are you favorite movie weddings?
There are so many good ones- a few of mine are: Father of the Bride, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Sweet Home Alabama and OF COURSE Princess Bride.
