"You’re beautiful, Bella." Alice assured me, straightening the ribbon.
I laughed and looked down at the floor. "Thank you. I hope nothing goes wrong." I really didn’t want to have a third wedding. But didn’t they say that third time was the charm?
"Come on, we need to get going. We have to drive to Port Angels." Esme reminded us, coming to help me gather the large amount of dress I had to drag around.
Rosalie came behind me and helped as well, as I walked down the stairs of the Cullen house in shoes that should have been illegal. I may be a vampire but the shoes still frightened me. What if I fell and ripped the dress?
We made it down to the limo without anything going wrong. I sighed as I sank into the leather seats. It was nice to sit down. I was really nervous about all this. The what if’s kept running through my head, popping up and then being replaced by another.
"Bella." Alice smiled at me. "Go to your happy place."
I smiled, slipping into very good thoughts.
Edward was standing in our meadow, on a really sunny day.
Edward holding me.
Edward kissing me for the first time, the second time, every time after that. Edward on the trip home from the Volturi trip.
Edward when he had asked me to marry him
His voice in my head.
All the good things.
"Come on, Bella." Esme was standing outside the limo, looking in at me. Rosalie and Alice were beside her, waiting on me.
I climbed out, making sure not to step on the dress. We were outside the hotel, where Edward and the rest of my family and friends were waiting at. It was a long way from the werewolves and urban enough that they wouldn’t be coming near this place.
I was ushered inside and into a waiting room. We were having the actual wedding in one of the ballrooms that was upstairs. No one was aloud to see me, except for Charlie and the female Cullen’s.
"Honey, you look so beautiful." I could see tears forming in his eyes. "I’m so happy that you decided to try and do this again."
"So am I, Dad."
"I think I’m just going to have to accept that Edward is a good man. He’s going to take good care of you. He’s the kind of person someone like you needs. He has his faults, but I think he saw the error of his ways. He’s a good man, Bells." I was shocked.
Charlie was accepting Edward. I never thought I would hear those words after that period where he had just vanished from the surface of the earth. Me running off to Italy hadn’t helped that situation.
"Thank you, Dad." I kissed him on the cheek.
"Bella, Charlie, come on. Get in position. We’re getting ready to walk." Alice said, positioning us in front of the door.
I heard music and Alice ran out to meet Jasper to walk down the isle with him. Edward had picked Jasper to be his best man, because his original choice had been unable to come thanks to a certain werewolf.
The two doors in front of us swung open and the bridal march began to play. We started walking down the isle, walking in perfect time to the music.
My eyes scanned over everything, taking in every detail. Alice had done a fantastic job. She had really stuck to the new color scheme we had decided to use.
The chairs were covered in white chair covers with a red ribbon in the back. Alice was there in her red dress. Jasper was there in his suit with his red tie. Then there was Edward.
He was wearing a black suit with a red vest and tie. The vest had an intricate detail on it that no one else would notice but me. His hair was the same as always, I had insisted that Alice not make it do something besides what it always did. I didn’t want to look away from him.
"Who gives this woman away?" The priest asked, standing in front of us, hands clasped on the Bible.
"I do." Charlie said, taking my hand and placing it in Edward’s.
I stepped up beside Edward, facing him. He grinned, looking at me with loving eyes.
‘I love you.’ His voice ghosted over me.
"Before we begin, I must ask if anyone objects to the union of these two young souls." I tried not to laugh. Edward was anything but young.
No one said anything, silence reigned. There was no one trying to stop us this time.
"Edward Anthony Mason Cullen, do you take Isabella Marie Swan to be your wife. In sickness and in health?"
"Isabella Marie Swan, do you take Edward Anthony Mason Cullen to be your husband. In sickness and in health?"
"Edward place the ring on her finger."
Jasper handed Edward the ring. It was a beautiful thing that fit around the ring I was wearing. Two extra diamonds joined my ring, making it look so much different.
"Bella, place the ring on Edward’s hand."
Alice gave me the ring that Edward was going to wear. I placed the simple gold band on his finger. It looked so nice. On the inside it had our names.
"I know pronounce you man and wife. You may kiss the bride."
Edward pulled me into his arms and kissed me. I tangled my hands in his hair, and kissed him back. We pulled away, foreheads touching. We had made it through the ceremony.
We walked back down the isle, while people threw rose petals at us. Someone from the hotel lead us into a side room while everyone else went down to the other ballroom where we were having dinner.
"Come here, Bella. I have a surprise for you." Alice said, pulling me into the bathroom.
There was a dress hanging there. It was exactly like the original dress that I had torn. I looked at her, raising my eyebrows.
"It’ll be easier to dance in." She said, starting to untie the back of my dress.
The rest of the night was great. It was so easy to move around in the dress I had changed into. Everyone loved the dress, just like they had loved the first dress.
We were forced to eat though. Everyone was watching us, and if we hadn’t eaten they would have thought something was up. I was going to get to enjoy my first night of throwing up food on the night of my wedding. If that was the worst thing that happened, then we were doing pretty good.
I was just going to have to accept that things were not going to go as we planned sometimes. Not even Alice can see everything in the future.
