Long trains can add a lot of glam to an otherwise plain gown. A too-long train is an accident waiting to happen, however. Especially when the bride and groom are standing up in an open-topped automobile winding its way down a busy street with an entourage of train-toters in tow.
The movement-impeding train you see before you was attached to a $13,000 wedding dress that took 10 tailors 45 days to make. Twenty people had to escort the blushing Southern Chinese bride from place to place, lest she faint from exertion or fall over backward.
I’m pretty sure that at 90 feet, this is the second longest train I’ve ever showcased. Princess Di’s train was a mere 25 feet long. Remember Lana of the $1.5 million wedding? Her train was only 40 feet long. However, the longest train I’ve shown thus far was a 99 meter long train and the longest I’ve mentioned in passing was the whopping 670 foot train that required a carrying crew of 186 bridemaids and page boys. Can you say, “Overboard?”
