Women attempting to set the Guinness World Record for the longest chain of brides in one location in London.

To celebrate the DVD release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1, a bevy of British fans dressed up as brides and stood in front of an HMV store in London to create the longest chain of brides in one location, hopefully setting a Guinness World Record in the process. We’re talking fully bridal regalia, including veils, jewelry, and even floral bouquets to both attempt the world record and buy a DVD of the film a day before the actual release. That seems like a lot of work just to get an early copy, right? Or maybe hundreds of Twi-fans really care about setting a Guinness World Record? OR is there something else to all this? The answer is YES…to the last question. Folks, beyond the world record and wearing a gown with a veil on a cold morning, all of these costumed brides got something extra special—a chance to see a clip of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 2 with Bella in all her transformed vampire glory. *passing out*
Also shown at U.S. Target stores nationwide, the clip features Bella and Edward having an intimate VAMPIRE conversation (smelling salts, please!) as well as some behind-the-scenes footage of Bella in vamp-action. There’s even a close-up of her gorgeously transformed liquid golden eyes and alabaster skin. While there isn’t a clear look at her vamp style in the clip, we do know that costume designer Michael Wilkinson always puts such thought and hard work into costuming the characters. But what about these British brides? Did they break the Guinness World Record for longest bride chain? While there’s no word yet on whether they succeeded, we’re certain they got exactly what they dressed up for in the first place. We would’ve donned our old ivory prom dresses to do the same. Or, you know, worn white sheets and random netting.
