World's longest wedding dress


Trains on wedding dresses are often long and normally require a couple of bridesmaids to keep them in place.

But this bride takes things to a whole new level.
The 17-year-old model named Emma was pictured showcasing the 1.85-mile long train now regarded as the world's longest.

The ivory train billowed out over a main boulevard in Romania's capital Bucharest as she rose over the city in a hot air balloon.

The Guinness Book of World Records declared the item on the silk and lace gown as the longest train, beating the previous record held by a Dutch designer.

But pedestrians didn't seem to make much of today's event, which was organised by the artifact's creators, the Andree Salon fashion house and the organisers of this year's biannual Wedding Fair in Bucharest. A few bystanders looked up at the balloon, but many others ignored it.

The train, which took 100 days to create, was crafted by a team of 10 seamstresses, said salon spokeswoman Lavinia Lascae.
The lace was imported from France, while taffeta and other fabrics were purchased from Italy, costing several thousand pounds, she added.
