Breaking Dawn

If you are a Twilight fan, then you have already seen the third movie, Breaking Dawn, and now it’s finally out on video. I can’t wait to see the final movie this next November. I was so ready to see Edward and Bella get married. The intensity between them was definitely caught in this movie. The characters come alive and make everyone want to jump into the screen, especially during the honeymoon…..the scenery was to die for!  That is where the focus of this night, and festivities will be. Make sure to remember how you and your spouse feel in love, had children, and the great walk you have shared in life.

Preparing for the Fun

  • “I have been waiting centuries to marry you, Miss Swan.” I think that I would have crumbled just at that line. You could use this quote with an invite to for the evening. Or you could choose from others here.

  • Tie an invite to a little cake/cupcake etc.
  • Dress in beach outfits to watch the movie
  • Drape some fabric above and around your bed, creating the canopy similar to theirs
  • Set the scene by putting out wedding photos and maternity photos in frames and placing them around the room you watch the movie in. Or even in frames you already have up to get him to notice and wonder why you’ve changed up all the photos. Anticipation!
  • Have a Twilight Marathon by watching 1 and 2 each week leading up to your premiere of Breaking Dawn.

Breaking Dawn Food

  • Make virgin pina coladas
  • Make Apple cupcakes that have a bite taken out of them. Find an example here.
  • Have some “blood” drinks – berry smoothies, tomato juice, V8, etc.
  • Eat Brazilian food for dinner, dress up like you are part of the wedding party.
  • Make frozen drinks and play it out like you are on a private beach.

Making the Night Memorable

  • Refer to Corie’s “My Man’s Twilight Survival Kit.”
    Reminisce about when you first became pregnant and how you two felt in any or all of your pregnancies. Watch the videos of their births!
  • Go to a lake or beach nearby and watch the sun set (maybe do some skinny dipping!)
  • Make a memorable night of “love making” like it was the first. DOT. DOT. DOT

Please take these ideas and put them to use in a way that fits your circumstances.

    Or if your husband would not be able to sit through a twilight movie, go to! For 3.99, you can download a commentary to listen to during the movie that makes fun of it the whole time! I enjoyed the Twilight books and movies, and I STILL enjoy the rifftrax version!

    Off to go downlaod rifftrax. You disclaimer at the bottom is amusing. It seems like each Twilight movie is better than the last, but the first one bit hard.
