World’s Longest Wedding Dress Train – Guinness Book of World Records

A hot air balloon floated over downtown Bucharest on Tuesday carrying a model wearing what is now regarded as the world’s longest bridal train.
The nearly 3km ivory train on the model’s wedding gown billowed out over a main boulevard in Romania’s capital.
The Guinness Book of World Records has recognised the 2.75km item on the silk and lace gown as the longest train, beating the previous record (2488m) held by a Dutch designer.

1. But pedestrians didn’t seem to make much of Tuesday’s (local time) media event, which was organised by the artifact’s creators: the Andree Salon fashion house and the organizers of this year’s biannual Wedding Fair in Bucharest.

The lace was imported from France, while taffeta and other fabrics were purchased from Italy, costing a total of 24,000 lei ($US7364.48).

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte recently demanded that Romania and Bulgaria do more to reform their justice systems and combat corruption and organized crime before he would support integration.
