Bride Breaks Wedding Dress World Record For Biggest Train

And you thought your wedding dress was impressive.

Well this bride wasn't content with just looking pretty on her big day, instead she decided to tackle a world record as well as making that lifelong committment. Two birds, eh?

And it looks like she pulled it off (not the dress, that would take forever), as the lucky lady is claiming a new world record for world's biggest ever wedding dress, with a whopper complete with an astonishing three mile long train.

The dress is a tad impractical, we'd say (CEN)

Bride Jing Mei put the dress on display this week ahead of the ceremony with groom Ye Yuan as she posed for the official pre-wedding photos in a park in Chengdu, a city in south-western China's Sichuan province.

The train - so long it had to be spread out over an entire field - had its own team of security guards to make sure it did not get snagged as Mei posed for the snaps.

Mei explained: "It started off as a mad idea and then we thought we could actually make it happen."

"We're both delighted with the result and we are definitely going to contact the Guinness World Records to get them to agree that this is an official record breaking dress."

She added: "It's incredibly dramatic and I feel so beautiful in it."

Mei needed 40 bridesmaids to help her with the dress (CEN)

Long suffering husband-to-be Yuan revealed the dress cost £4,000 to create, nearly a year's wages for the average Chinese worker.

He said: "It is her day, so what she says goes."

The heavy train weighs more than 120 lbs (50kg) and Mei will need a team of 40 bridesmaids to help carry it on her big day.

She explained: "At least that's good news for my friends and relatives because I don't have to choose - everyone can be a bridesmaid."

According to reports, the current longest dress is 2,977 metres. The dress was worn by then 17-year-old Romanian Emma Dumitrescu in 2012, setting a new Guinness World Record for the longest dress train.
