Mrs Carter: If Robert wears jeans and a tee-shirt to his wedding, we really won’t be surprised.
‘Twilight’ character’s Edward Cullen and Bella Swan will be having the wedding of the century in just a week and a half and while their wedding may be a little lavish and quite traditional, Robert Pattinson isn’t sure if that’s what he wants for himself when the time comes.
Pattinson spoke to Us Weekly about the over the top wedding ceremony scene he has with co-star and real life girlfriend Kristen Stewart in the upcoming ‘Breaking Dawn’ film and said that the whole idea of a lavish wedding seemed like a hassle. Robert explains;
“It does seem kind of like a hassle. I was doing an interview with Kristen, and she got kind of annoyed at me for saying the groom’s role in a wedding is basically just a prop. Even playing the part, you kind of realize it’s such a clear indication of whose day it is when you’re standing at one end of the aisle and the entire congregation is looking at the other end and you’re wearing the same suit as every other guy and just kind of waiting there. And she is in a princess dress walking down! Any guy who tries to get involved in organizing a wedding or even has an opinion of what their wedding should be” is “really kind of ridiculous. It’s whatever your wife decides to do.”
So with that being said, does that mean that a lavish wedding is completely out of the deck for Pattinson? He said;
“I don’t really mind. I just don’t want to have to wear a silly outfit. That’s the only thing you have to think about!”
Weddings really do put a lot of focus on the bride while the groom kinda ends up getting a bit of the shaft when it comes to their special day and while we see that starting to change a little, at least in the planning stages, it’s still a far cry from being equal.
