Oh my! Imagine trying to walk down the altar in this? I pity the poor bride and bridemaids that have to manage this train.
A bride in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou will soon walk down the aisle wearing the country’s longest wedding dress.
Her fiancé contracted a local tailor to make the wedding gown, with the dress’ train stretching for 200.8 meters, Guangzhou Daily reported.
The bridegroom says the length echoes the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
It has set a new domestic record, grabbing the title from the previous holder at 99 meters.
The couple’s wedding is scheduled for Monday, after which the dress will be put on for charity auction.
I wonder whose bright idea this was? If it was the fiancé’s, then I say he should be left at the altar!
Surprisingly (to me at least), this did not set the world record. According to Guinness World Records, the winner of that title goes to Andreas Evstratiou of Cyprus. She set that record in February 2007 with a train 1,362 m long. Top that!
