Twilight fans can have their very own fairytale wedding experience next year when Carolina Herrera’s CHNY boutiques begin selling gowns in the same design as worn by Bella Swan in Breaking Dawn - Part 1, the apparel maker’s spokesman said.

The white sheath wedding dress with a lace-embellished back was custom-made for actress Kristen Stewart by New York fashion designer Herrera, who said she was was “flattered” when asked to create the gown and felt the pressured to deliver something that would please Twilight fans.

“I wanted to create a magical moment that they had at the wedding,” Herrera said at the movie’s red carpet premiere last week.

“She’s an innocent girl that is finding her first true love, so there is romance, there is magic, there is everything together,” Herrera said.

Ahead of the film’s debut, the details of Bella’s dress seemed as closely guarded as Alexander McQueen’s gown for this year’s British royal wedding. No further details have been released from Carolina Herrera regarding how many dresses will be produced or their retail price, but for Twilight fans eager to wear the dress down the aisle before next year, bridal dress company Alfred Angelo are already selling replicas from $799 in select stores worldwide.
