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?

RIDICULOUS waste of time money energy and resources

Sharon on

What is the point, way on earth would anyone want a 2 mile long train.

therese on

damn that is one long **s train i would not want to wear :)

Boo on

That’s too much work for yourself.

Diedre on

I can only imagine what a pain that must be to bustle

firefighter27 on

Well, I guess it could double as the wedding tent for outdoor weddings. :/

Boo on

Why?

emma on

why would they make that dress i mean noone is going to buy it

Anonymous on

The dress is relatively beautiful but the train is useless and ridiculous. Good to break a world record but unnecessary for the real world.

Kat on

Looks like Kim K is going to need to stage another marriage, only she would actually do something this absurd and wasteful!

RH on

Completely agree with other comments. Ridiculous!!

Anna on

I love wedding gowns with trains and while the gown is very nice, the train is too much. My gown had 10 foot train of lace, sequins and pearls.

anonymous on

Looks more like an aisle runner.

Betty on

Man, what a story, Bride gets to alter ten minutes before her gown arrives??

Gigi on

This is totally bogus – it should only count toward the “record” if someone actually wore it to get married.

Antoniah on

Why? This is why: “The stunt was sponsored in part by the organizers of Bucharest’s 2012 biannual Wedding Fair.” It’s called publicity stunt and it seems it worked pretty well! Plus the designer put his name on the map (for good and bad)

LBM on

That’s pretty silly and a waste.

dawn on

I did not want a train. I thought it would be too over the top and I wanted to keep things simple. That was until I started trying on dresses and started to feel like a fairy princess. My train wasn’t long, but it was a train. 24 years later and I still think my dress was very beautiful.

tada on

what a HUGE waste!

Lindsay on

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

Tina on

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.

Samantha on

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?

SuzieQ on

You could probably make a hundred wedding gowns from that if not more.

no train not even a boxcar

Chase on

That is beyond moronic.

Kim on

Absolutely ridiculous. What an attention seeker to do something so dumb. something Kim K would do.

Janet on

I rather ride on a real train than drag around a 1.85 mile wedding dress train.

Kim on

That just may be the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen.

Louise on

That 2 mile train just got Romanian design house Andree Salon in the National Press. For them, I would say it was a BARGAIN! I can’t believe people think it was made for any other reason, like an actual wedding train….. DUH!

Sarah on

Yeah, it’s not dumb at all. It’s PR genius!

NM on

This is the DUMBEST thing I’ve ever seen. I agree, what a total waste of time and money. It’s a dress that will NEVER be worn at any wedding, it’s all for show. It was only made to break a world record. RIDICULOUS!

Jae on

So while people in Bucharest are starving to death, these people waste money on a dress that someone can’t reasonably wear in a wedding!

Toni on

wow, what a waste of….everything…..

Conner210 on

This is the dumbest story and a complete waste.

Zoe Moon on

The dress is gorgeous, but the train is just too long. I understand about wanting to break the world record. But there is nothing on the train that makes it so special. It is just a plain long piece of fabric.

Wow what a great way to spend money. I wonder how many children could have been clothed in third world countries with that 2 miles of fabric. Selfish company, Selfish waste of time.
