The wedding dress that Kristen Stewart wears as Bella Swan in Breaking Dawn was custom-made, gorgeous... and darn expensive!

Speaking to E! News, author Stephenie Meyer says she personally selected designer Carolina Herrera to come up with the gown because she wanted it "to be something special, not something that you're going to see every day."

Hence the crepe satin, French Chantilly Lace and nearly 200 button across the back and sleeves.

THEY DO!

"I love what Carolina did with it, she came up with a stunning concept. It's similar to what I envisioned, but with added elements," Meyer says.

Want one yourself for when you walk down the aisle? A replica version is available right now from Alfred Angelo bridal dress company. It's priced at $799.

But Herrera plans to include the real gown in her 2012 collection, which will be on sale at CHNY boutiques. It might set you back a few allowances, though: expect it to cost around $35,000.

Attention, Twihards: you may never sleep with Robert Pattinson. But that doesn't mean you can't resemble the young woman who did sleep with Robert Pattinson in Breaking Dawn!

That's right, a replicated version of Bella Swan's wedding dress is now available.

Breaking Dawn didn't break any box office records this weekend, but it didn't fare too poorly, either.

The fourth installment in The Twilight Saga is estimated to have earned $139.5 million on Friday and Saturday, the fifth most lucrative opening weekend in Hollywood history. New Moon actually bested this edition by $4 million on 2004.

But Breaking Dawn did set a new Twilight mark in global earnings, taking home $283.5 million around the world over the last couple days. Did you see it? What did you think Breaking Dawn?

 

Below, we've posted the complete top 10 box office results from the weekend.

It's official: movie goers are not sick of Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart and company. Midnight showings across the country of Breaking Dawn brought in $30.3 million this morning.

That's on par with Eclipse and about $4 million more than New Moon pulled in during the same opening time slot.

The record for midnight showings is $43.5 million, held by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. That wizard-based flick went on to earn $169.2 million over its first two days, a number Breaking Dawn is unlikely to top. Insiders expect it to garner a mere $140 million or so this weekend.

Fortunately, yet another installment of this beloved franchise is on the way in November 2012. You'll have one more shot at the record, Twihards! Don't blow it.

Let's face it: you are going to see Breaking Dawn. It doesn't really matter if every critic give it a worse grade than Jack & Jill. It's really only a matter of how many times you attend a showing this weekend, not whether or not you choose to do so.

Still, what sort of expectations should you have for Edward and Bella's big day? Will it meet expectations?

Yes, says our friend, Joel Amos, of Movie Fanatic.

The wedding scene is a beauty to behold," he writes, adding that "fans will be all sorts of a twitter" as they watch this beloved couple exchange vows.

Taylor Lautner, meanwhile, "excels in capturing a man," someone truly coming in to his own, both physically and emotionally, while "living at a crossroads" due to his unrequited love for Bella.

Don't expect much action in this second-to-last installment of the franchise, but true Twihards will be happy that Breaking Dawn remains true to the book and to Stephenie Meyer's's vision.
