Oh, how the opening 'marry me' tirade had me rolling...

I am so very puzzled over why a Cullen (supposedly the richest fictional family in the history of ever - someone actually did an informal study) would buy a diamond chip ring from walmart. Seriously, those things are bulk quality, at best (I won't even mention the crappy glue job on the repro.)

Well, maybe I can think of two reasons: Meyers either has a ring just like it or always wanted one as a girl, and/or it's some embodiment of aaaaaaall of Edward's sparkles, so Bella can touch them forever and ever. Like all the refracted light from one huge brilliant-cut diamond wouldn't produce sparkles enough? That doesn't even look like a platinum setting. He'll buy his 'sister' a Porche just for keeping Bella occupied for one night, but his twu wuv has an under-$200 budget for a ring she's supposed to wear forever?

Edward Cullen: the fiscally sensible billionaire.

Smeyer has not fashion sense

I mean I love her and I love the books, but the woman has no taste on accessories and clothes.

You can tell for the way she describes the clothing on the books (can you imagine Rob on turtlenecks), to the way she dresses herself. She looked like an eggplant on the L.A. premiere, wich is a shame because she has nice features that she can work with she needs help with her style PRONTO! so I pray to the fashion Gods that they keep her away from Bella's wedding dress and hire an actual fashion designer (Vera Wang or Oscar de la Renta) because I'm sure the dress will look like the ring if she has any say on it.

This horror?


I assume she has no stylist but shame on any salesperson that would allow her to purchase that outfit, especially if she explained it was for a special event.

Oh God yes! Really I know Mormon's are supposed to dress conservative but I had seen her on better conservative dresses in many occasions so I don't know what the hell happened here.

Yeah, it's his mother's. I cut a bit about him getting offended and fussing at Bella ("IT WAS MY MOTHER'S!!") because, well... not terribly funny, even if informative.

Which is one of the reasons that ring pisses me off SO BAD, because it doesn't look ANYTHING like a decent ring from that era would. Seriously, I rant about this at length.
