PHOTO: Wedding Gown with 2-Mile Train Breaks World Records
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?
