Robert Pattinson on Weddings: The Bride Is All That Counts

Originally posted 11/05/2011 09:40AM

Shooting the wedding scene for Breaking Dawn – Part 1 made Kristen Stewart nervous and Robert Pattinson aware of how secondary the husband is.

"The groom's role in a wedding ... is just a prop," the actor, 24, said at a press event for the film, which opens Nov. 18. "Even playing the part, you kind of realize [that]. I mean, it's such a clear indication whose day it is when you're standing on one end of the aisle and the entire congregation is on the other, and you're in the same suit as every other guy."

The groom's insignificance, as it were, even seeps into the planning, insists Pattinson.

"Any guy who tries to get involved in organizing a wedding or even has an opinion of what a wedding should be, then they're kind of ridiculous. It's whatever your wife decides to do," he added with a laugh.

While Pattinson made clear he wouldn't mind having a fancy real-life wedding of his own, he does have one condition: "I just don't want to have to wear a silly outfit."
