Bridal Shops to 'Twilight' Fans: Stop Trying on Bella's Wedding Dress Unless You Want to Buy It

Nov 29, 2011

The problem with anything featured in a very popular film is that if it's a location, fans will flock to it, and if it's a piece of clothing, fans will wait on lines for hours to purchase it. Unless it's something expensive, meant for one-time use, like, say, a wedding dress. TMZ reports that bridal shops are starting to complain about the amount of Twilight fans stopping by in attempts to con their way into trying on a replica of the dress Bella wore in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1.

According to employees who work at various Alfred Angelo bridal boutiques (who are currently selling a replica of the dress for $799), Twi-hards are coming in and lying about being engaged just to see what they would look like in the dress. Of course, the images TMZ posted on their site of the dress inside the store show it featured, solo -- flanked by cardboard cutouts of Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner -- just as you walk in the door. Seems like common sense, but if you don't want the attention, then don't broadcast the fact that you have a replica of the dress with cardboard cutouts of the actors. It's like you're screaming, "Hey fans, come try on the dress and take your picture with our cardboard Robert Pattinson!"

So, fans, if you're really engaged and seriously shopping for a dress, then feel free to stop by and pick up a replica of Bella's. And who knows, if you throw them a few extra bucks, maybe they'll loan you the cardboard cutouts for your bachelorette party.
