She may be playing a fierce vampire on the big screen this week, but Twilight star Nikki Reed went traditional at her fall wedding in California last month. What is it about a wedding that makes even red-carpet rebels want to play princess for a day? The perpetually edgy Reed—known outside the Twi-verse for gritty turns in indie flicks like Thirteen and Lords of Dogtown—married American Idol alum Paul McDonald in a one-of-a-kind fit-and-flare fantasy gown that was dripping with Tacori diamonds. Follow the jump for an inside scoop on the glam gown's details. —BRIDES magazine

—Embedded in the center of the bodice's blingy band were 30 carats of Tacori diamonds—one five-carat rock surrounded by 12 pear-shaped stones, symbolizing the months of the year and the circle of life.

—It took more than 100 hours of hand-stitching to fit the dress to Nikki's body.

—The back of the dress featured 100 diamond buttons (a total of 105 carats!).

—The train was six feet long!
