“Bella, get up. There is so much that needs to be done before the wedding today.” Alice was jumping on the bed.
“I know, but can’t you let me sleep for like an hour more?” I asked, but already knew the answer.
“Not a chance. You can sleep in tomorrow.” Alice said.
“Fine.” I hissed and went into the bathroom and took my shower. I slipped on my pajama shorts and a tank top, and went downstairs to eat.
“Your breakfast is made, but you have to hurry up and eat. We are on a time schedule.” Rose informed me.
“I didn’t think you would want to be a part of this.” I said.
“Bella, you’re going to be a part of our family in a few short hours. I have come to the conclusion that I can’t hate you for the rest of eternity. I just wish you would reconsider becoming a vampire.”
“Rose, I want to be with Edward forever.”
“I guess I will learn to understand that.” She said.
“Now hurry up and eat.” When I finished breakfast I was basically hauled upstairs and sat in the chair in Alice’s bathroom.
Alice and Rose styled my hair at vampire speed. They decided to pull up half of it and curl it and pin it. The rest of it was curled in long spirals. They continued on to my make up. They didn’t put much on me, because they said I didn’t need it.
“Come on Bella we have gifts for you.” Alice said. Rose began to giggle at the expression on my face.
“Why did you get me gifts and not Edward?” I asked.
“Well, they’re for both of you.” Rose said with a devilish grin on her face.
“Now I really don’t want to open them.”
“Bella just open it.” Alice said as she handed me a bag.
“Fine.” I took the bag from her and started to slowly open it.
“Sometime today, Bella.” Rose said startling me.
I opened the bag and pulled out sapphire blue lingerie. I felt my face turn crimson. I couldn’t believe they bought this.
“I told you she would be embarrassed.” Rose said to Alice.
“Yes, but it will be something Edward will like.” Alice said.
“I’m not even sure if we are going to actually do it. He might not be able to. He promised that we would try, but if he feels that he won’t be able to control himself I don’t want to force him. Wearing this might make things a little worst. I might have to save this for after I am changed.”
“Bella, Edward has more control than he thinks. He won’t hurt you. Well besides what will be unavoidable.” Alice informed me.
“Alice you peeked into the future haven’t you?”
“Yeah, but just enough to see if you do try.”
“I can’t believe you.” I said.
“What I was curious. I promise I won’t peak into the future unless I have to.”
“I can’t ask you to do that, but I can ask you to not peak into the future about tonight.”
“Okay, I won’t.” Alice promised.
“But Bella, when we come back you will have to tell us everything.” Rose said.
“I don’t know about the details, but I will share something with you.” I said.
“I will be right back. I am going to go and get the other surprise.” Alice said right before she disappeared.
“Rose, what is the other gift?”
“I can’t tell you that silly. The surprise would be ruined if I told you.” She smiled. Alice returned with my mother.
“Mom!” I ran over and hugged her. “I thought you couldn’t make it, because of Phil’s schedule.”
“Bella, Phil is a very understanding guy. He knew how much I wanted to be here and told me he would be fine alone. He also told me to tell you that he’s sorry he couldn’t make it.”
“Wow, Phil is really understanding. I am so glad you are here.” I said as the tears started to stream down my face.
“Is Charlie coming?” Renee asked.
“Yes. After we told him he was pretty upset, but when he cooled down he said that he would come.”
“Well I am glad to hear it.” Renee and I talked until it was time for me to get in my wedding dress.
“Bella it is six o’clock. I think you should get into your wedding dress.” Alice said.
“Okay.” Renee, Rose, Esme, and Alice helped me with my dress.
“Oh Bella, you look absolutely gorgeous.” Renee said.
“You really think so?” I asked.
“Yes. Why wouldn’t I?”
“I don’t know. I guess it is just because I have never thought I was pretty.”
“Well I don’t know where you get that from, but you are very pretty.” Renee assured me.
“Thanks mom.” I went downstairs to where Charlie was. He turned and looked at me.
“Bella, you look so beautiful and so grown up.” His voice cracked at the end.I could tell he was holding back his tears the best he could.
“Dad everything will be okay. I will visit you as much as possible before I have to move and go to college.”
“Yeah, but by then you won’t be just mine and your mother’s. We will have to share you with Edward and his family.”
“Oh dad.” I am glad Alice used waterproof mascara, because I started to cry.
I knew when I was changed it would be difficult to let him go. This is what I wanted. Edward did warn me about this, but I don’t care. I mean I care. It’s just easier to let Charlie and Renee go, than it is to stay human and know that when I die Edward will too.
“It looks like it is time to go. Are you ready?”
“Yes.” Charlie and I interlocked our arms together and proceeded to walk down the aisle. Alice did go overboard like I knew she would.
Candles and lanterns lighted the whole yard. It was beautiful. I seen that the whole town was basically here, but once my eyes found Edward’s it seemed to fade. It felt like it was just us. Edward had my favorite crooked smile upon his face. I smiled in return.
When we got up to where Edward was, Charlie turned me towards him and gave me a hug. Then he gave me to my love, Edward. Before I knew it, it was time to say our vows.
“Edward, I stand in front of our families and friends, to give myself to you. Before you, life had no meaning. I was a drifter in search of a home. Now I have found it and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my days with you. On this day I pledge to you my love and happiness.” I said trying to stop myself from crying tears of joy. I placed the ring on his finger.
“Bella, Today, as I give myself to you my mind is clear and my commitment is strong and without reservation. I take you to be my life's partner. I will never leave you nor forsake you; I will spend all my days at your side. We will share a lifetime of eternal, immeasurable love.” He smiled and placed the ring on my finger.
I was lost in Edward’s eyes once again and the next thing I remembering was the preacher pronouncing us husband and wife.
“I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may now kiss your bride.” The preacher said.
Edward lifted my veil and kissed me like he has never before. There was so much love and passion behind it. I didn’t want it to end.
“I present to you Mr. and Mrs. Edward Cullen.”
Edward and I walked to the limo, after we were bombarded with rice, we got in and drove to the place Alice picked out for the reception. It was perfect. We talked to everyone that was there. Edward had picked the song that we would dance our first dance together.
It was I will follow you into the dark by Death Cab for Cutie. I thought it was an interesting choice, but it did fit. After our first dance we all gave our little speeches and then we ate dinner. I felt bad for the whole Cullen family, because they had to eat the food. Edward told me that none of them minded, because it was an important day.
The next dance was the father and daughter dance. I knew Charlie didn’t dance, but he came and danced with me to the best of his ability.
“Bella, I am sorry about how I reacted when you and Edward told me that you were getting married. I should have known this was going to happen. I guess I thought he would leave you again, but I see the love that you both share for each other and know that you will last.” Charlie said.
“Awww. Dad, I knew you were going to be upset. I got upset because you said that you weren’t coming to the wedding.”
“What kind of father would I be if I missed my only child’s wedding?”
“I don’t know. I am glad you came.”
“So am I.” We talked more about sappy stuff and then he said something that caught me off guard.
“Jacob and Billy came.”
“What? I haven’t seen them.”
“They left right after the ceremony. They told me to tell you congratulations.”
“That was very sweet of them.” Just then a new song started playing.
“Do you mind if I borrow her for this dance?” Edward asked.
“No, not at all.” We dance in silence, just staring into each other’s eyes. I was glad to be his for the rest of eternity.
“Did Charlie tell you about Jacob?”
“Yes. I am surprised they came at all.”
“So am I.”“I am glad they came.”
“So how does it feel to be Mrs. Cullen?” Edward asked.
“It’s great so far.” I teased. “How does it feel to have a wife?”
“It’s the best feeling.” He smiled. “Bella, you look so beautiful. I know you’ve heard that a million times tonight, but you truly do. I can’t wait to see you in the gift my sisters gave you.”
“How did you find out about that?” I asked curious.
“Well to be honest, Rose told me about it.”
“Nice. So much for a surprise.”
“She also told me that you weren’t going to wear it, because you didn’t want to force me into anything I didn’t want to do. Bella just so you know, it is taking everything I have not to steal you away right now.” I laughed at his comment.
“I was serious that day in the meadow. I would have changed you and we would have tried right then.” He said
“I know, but I am glad we waited. I am also delighted that we got married. I know I said that I wasn’t one of those people who got married right out of high school, but I knew I wanted to be tied to you every humanly way possible.”
“Well I am pleased you feel that way. I love you Isabella Marie Cullen.”
“I love you too, Edward Anthony Masen Cullen.” After our dance, we went and cut the cake.
Edward thought he was being funny by shoving the rest of the piece of cake, he had in his hand after we fed each other, in my face. So I did the same to him, only this time he didn’t find it so funny.We said our goodbyes as everyone left.
I gave Renee another hug and thanked her for being here and that it meant the world to me. I gave Charlie a hug and assured him I would come and visit him in a day or two.
“Edward and Bella, what are you two still doing down here?” Alice asked.
“Go home and have some fun!” Emmett said.
“You don’t have to be so straight forward Emmett. We want to say goodbye to everyone before we left.” I said.
