In the published excerpt, part of the final installment of the series, Meyer’s main character, Bella, finally chooses to tie the knot with one of her possible paramours, Edward or Jacob. (Fans online have been eagerly debating which suitor Bella should choose.)

Recently, though, Meyer gave away Bella’s choice, telling EW that she enjoyed penning the wedding scene. Said Meyer: “It’s not a dream sequence! It’s the actual wedding between Edward and Bella. The wedding! I’m a girly girl so it’s something I’ve been waiting for too.”

Did the author choose well?

Time will tell. Message boards on the series’ official Web site have been shut down until the book’s release date to prevent spoilers from leaking.
