How has it been almost an entire decade since Twilight sent teenage (and adult — no shame here) hearts all aflutter. The first film in the franchise hit theaters eight years ago and the vampire phenomenon subsequently took a bite of the nation, with hordes of fans under the spell of its books and movies. Say what you want about the sometimes silly dialogue or fantastical plot lines, but there's no denying that Twilight gave us some serious wedding inspo — from Bella and Edward's floral-filled ceremony, to the bride's Carolina Herrera long-sleeve silk sheath wedding dress, to her stunningly unique engagement ring. And now, fans of the film can buy themselves a piece of that vampire-filled big day as a collection of original Twilight memorabilia is now up for auction!
Brides-to-be who dreamed of being proposed to with a ring just like Bella's beautiful oval engagement ring can now own that very same bling — complete with every one of its 69 diamonds. So listen up, grooms! Cosmopolitan reports that a collection of props, costumes, and set decorations from the Twilight films will be going to auction for fans to sink their fangs into.
The public can place their bids online, in-person, or by phone for items such as Bella's engagement ring (which is expected to fetch between $3,000 and $5,000), Edward Cullen's journal, Bella's copy of Wuthering Heights, Jacob's motorcycle, and Bella's iPod (no word if it comes with angsty teen tunes pre-downloaded), with the auction concluding on November 19th and 20th at Hollywood's TCL Chinese Theatres.
Also up for grabs is other wedding day memorabilia, including Bella's bouquet, bejeweled hair comb, and oh yeah, her bloodstained and tattered wedding dress from a dream sequence. We'd say you'll probably save money recycling these Twilight props for your own big day, but you might want to rethink that last one...
