Kristen Stewart: Wearing a Wedding Dress for 'Breaking Dawn' Was a "Huge Deal"

The Twilight star explains why trying on Bella's gown was so "insane" and gets emotional over the end of the franchise

Is it Nov. 18 yet?

The premiere of Breaking Dawn, Part 1 is still three months away, but we're already going crazy with all the juicy details being leaked about the film -- from Edward and Bella's wedding to their pillow-biting honeymoon to the "hardcore" childbirth scene!

Now Twilight star Kristen Stewart -- who sports a glamorous 1960s look on the cover of September's W magazine -- is opening up about how emotional it was to film the wedding scene in Breaking Dawn, making us even more eager to see the movie.

For Stewart, 21, the craziest part was trying on the wedding dress. "This was my first wedding," she says. "It was insane. And odd. The wedding dress experience was a huge deal. I tried on one version of the dress, and it was like tweak and tweak and alter and tweak and change, and then it’s done. BFD dress. Huge deal."

But it wasn't just the whole dress thing that was significant for Stewart. "The last Twilight book is filled with BFDs, things that people have been waiting for for so long," she says. "For me, it was ridiculously dramatic: I get married, give birth, the baby has an incredibly accelerated growth rate we’re all very concerned about, and I say goodbye to my dad for the last time ever. It was all big -- I could never go, Whew, I’m losing this character."

Stewart's co-star (and real-life love) Robert Pattinson has had more to say about "breaking the bed" in the honeymoon scene than the wedding itself. But perhaps that's to be expected? After all, he has always said that Stewart is more emotional than he is.

And as the Twilight franchise (which catapulted Stewart to mega-fame) comes to a close, she has yet another reason to get emotional. "I’d been anticipating that end-of-Bella moment," she says. "I was going, 'Oh, my God -- I wonder how I’m going to feel.' And the last scene of the shoot was at the wedding. Every single character was there on set. At the end of that day, I was kind of whacked. And so I never really had that moment then. Instead, it happened later. We needed to film one more sort of honeymoon scene and we went to the Virgin Islands. After that scene, my true final scene, I felt like I could shoot up into the night sky and every pore of my body would shoot light. I felt lighter than I’ve ever felt in my life."
