The wedding dress featured in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 is available for purchase.

The Carolina Herrera-designed gown was worn by Bella (Kristen Stewart) as she exchanged wedding vows with Edward (Robert Pattinson) in the latest installment of The Twilight Saga.

A replica of the dress is being sold by bridal retailer Alfred Angelo and is available in stores throughout the US for $799 (£511), The Wall Street Journal reports.

The copy is nearly identical to the version donned by Stewart in the film, save for the fact that the replica dress is made of liquid satin instead of silk.

"The stitching on the bodice is the same, and the lace detailing is similar," designer Michael Shettel said. "There were pricing issues to try to get it down to $799. That was the biggest issue more than design issues."

In addition, Herrera will be selling the actual dress in her bridal boutiques as well starting sometime next year, according to Reuters. Details on the pricing have yet to be released.

Herrera told the news agency that she was hoping to "create a magical moment" with the long-sleeved gown.

"She's an innocent girl that is finding her first true love, so there is romance, there is magic, there is everything together," Herrera said.

Stewart previously credited the Herrera gown with helping the on-screen wedding feel more realistic.
