I See the Train a Comin’


It’s quite possible you didn’t know there was a category in the Guinness Book of World Records for longest train on a wedding gown. Until quite recently – as in Tuesday – the record was held by someone in the Netherlands. On Tuesday, though, their record of less than a mile was shattered by The Andree Salon in Romania gown which features a 1.85 mile long train.

Of course a train this long isn’t very practical for your average wedding. The materials alone cost over seven thousand dollars, and the length would fill four football fields.

So how does one make a getaway in a gown with a nearly two mile long train?

In a hot air balloon, natch!

    All I could do was laugh….the point of the train is to be pretty and to stand out as the bride and this is major overkill.

    I’m pretty sure the point of *this* train was to set a record.
