Just days after the premiere of "Twilight: Breaking Dawn," Twi-hards can buy their very own replica of Bella Swan's wedding gown for just $799 through Alfred Angelo.

According to The Wall Street Journal's "On the Runway" blog, wedding retailer Alfred Angelo has been working with Carolina Herrera -- who designed the original for the movie -- in secret to make sure that the dress would be available shortly after the premiere:

Back in May, bridal retailer Alfred Angelo began working with Summit Entertainment to replicate the wedding dress in time for the film’s November premiere, under a confidentiality agreement that designer Michael Shettel jokes was “signed in blood.” The company, which used undisclosed code names for the Twilight dress project, limited its circle of principals involved to only about four people, the designer said.

Even the process of shipping the dress to stores was reportedly done in secret.

Considering Herrera has said that the actual dress took about six months to make, it makes sense that there are a few differences between the original and this $799 replica. While the original was rendered in silk, for example, this dress is made of liquid satin. The lace is similar, but not exact. But will die-hard "Twilight" fans really care enough not to snap up the dress? Doubtful.
