Paging Jessica Biel: we’ve found your wedding dress.

Tuesday, Romanian design house Andree Salon unveiled a couture wedding gown with a 1.85-mile-long train — a world record-setter. The train took 100 days to create, a spokeswoman for the designer tells the U.K.’s Daily Mail, and required the meticulous work of 10 seamstresses. It’s made of pricey lace imported from France, plus taffeta sourced from Italy.

To flaunt the gown, Andree Salon hired a 17-year-old model to wear it — and in some photos, dangle the train from atop a hot air balloon over Romania’s capital, Bucharest.

The stunt was sponsored in part by the organizers of Bucharest’s 2012 biannual Wedding Fair. Tell us: Did your wedding gown have a train?

Really bad picture of gown and sun in model’s eyes.

Ok when you have a long train “just to have a long train” it looks ridiculous. It doesn’t work well with the rest of the dress, it looks like an extra long extra large roll of toilet paper that you’re dragging around. Plus it’s probably a pain to drag it around.

You’ll have to hitch that baby up a couple of times before your first dance, Ms. Bride. I guess the purpose of this train is to get into the Guinness Book of World Records. Otherwise … what’s the point?

Some people have way to much money and way too little sense!
