This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I’m not dead, in case anyone wondered. To be honest, I’ve just been too busy and Lazy to upload anything. However, I return today with a small gift for you guys. For some reason I’ve been rather obsessed lately with recreating real dresses I like, and so I thought I would share one of them with you today.



I’ve done my best to faithfully re-create the custom wedding gown Bella wore in Breaking Dawn Part 1. The dress was designed specifically for the film by Carolina Herrera, a well-known fashion designer. Also created for the film where Bella’s pumps by Manolo Blahnik. Herrera and Blahnik collaborated to make sure the shoes and the dress both had a vintage look to them, while not coming off as dated.
I loved everything about her wedding look, from her hair and make-up to the shoes and dress. I especially love the back of the gown, although it was a pain in the ass to try and recreate.



The dress uses a base game mesh, so you just need my re-texture, and you’re good to go. The model in the pictures is my own Bella sim. However, please do not ask me to upload her, because she is derived from Vera Marina’s Bella that is no longer available for download here. The hair “Bella” is wearing is by Helga, and recolored by Dustfinger, and can be downloaded here. “Edward’s” hair is a sims 3 conversion by Lina, and can be downloaded here. Thanks, and enjoy! I would love to see it if you use it in stories, videos and pics!!!

Thank you so much guys!!!!!! Every comment makes me smile and remember why I love the sims comunity!

makabaer, MistyBlue: Thank you! I tried very hard to make it as acurate and detailed as possible.

heaven: Well, maybe somone will convert it for sims 3, although I dont know if it would convert well or not to be honest. I have to admit that the sims 3 is much more "playable" than the sims 2. So, if anyone was so inclined, they're welcome to try and convert it for sims 3. At the least it might serve as a template they can work from. Anyways, I'm so happy you like it!

Thank you all for taking the time to comment!

I admit, I genuinely dislike Twilight and its characters, but I can never resist the allure of pretty dresses. The designer of this gown made an incredible piece of art and you did an astonishing job recreating it for the game! Thank-you for putting so much care and effort into this.

Although I've never read the Twilight series or seen the movies, this dress is beautiful. You did an amazing job on it and the shoes as well. My Sim brides will look lovely in this. Thank you.

When I read "Bella's Wedding Gown" my first thought was Bella Goth . . . Shows you were mind goes. I know little to nothing about Twilight, but man that's a gorgeous gown.

Hi, BreakingDawnDress_WP.rar seems to be empty.. I can't extract the dress.
It's just me or it's a common problem?

Thanks and have a nice day.

Please, sorry for my bad English..

I just downloaded and extracted it from the .rar package, so everything seems to be fine.
