HOLYYYYYY MATRIMONY!!! Whoa. WHOA. I’m hyperventilating. Hold up a second. Let me just… grab this chair, catch my breath. Go ahead and… read the headline to yourself for a little. I’ll be here, digesting. Are you back? Deep breaths, all.
Remember, like, two weeks ago when we were all totally flipping our ish over that sneak preview of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 that aired at the Movie Awards?? We were all, “Zoinks. Bella’s VEIL. And her RING. And EDWARD in a TUX,” and fits of hysterical crying and laughing and crying again? Well, get the tissues ready because last night, Summit Entertainment confirmed via Facebook and Twitter that Bella’s dress is designed by none other than gown guru Carolina Herrera.

NOW, we can use Caro’s spring bridal collection and those sketches we saw back in April to predict what the dress is going to look like. The illustrated veil and Herrera’s own design appear very similar—floor-length with dainty floral details along the hemlines—and given the designer’s propensity for the delicately ornate and usage of elegant lines, it’s safe to say that the dress in the film won’t stray too far from the original sketch. The sketch has Bella with a bit of a neck situation, but we are hoping it is more refined than the dress on the right; cowls have never done anyone a service before. Our secret wish? The lacy, short-sleeve number to the far left. BUT dear omniscient Twilight gods (aka insiders running the movie’s promotional calendar), we will NEVER forgive you if you reveal a single detail more about Bella’s dress until the premiere. Seriously. Don’t ruin this moment for us.
