Paging Jessica Biel: we’ve found your wedding dress.

Tuesday, Romanian design house Andree Salon unveiled a couture wedding gown with a 1.85-mile-long train — a world record-setter. The train took 100 days to create, a spokeswoman for the designer tells the U.K.’s Daily Mail, and required the meticulous work of 10 seamstresses. It’s made of pricey lace imported from France, plus taffeta sourced from Italy.

To flaunt the gown, Andree Salon hired a 17-year-old model to wear it — and in some photos, dangle the train from atop a hot air balloon over Romania’s capital, Bucharest.

The stunt was sponsored in part by the organizers of Bucharest’s 2012 biannual Wedding Fair. Tell us: Did your wedding gown have a train?

Completely agree with other comments. Ridiculous!!

I love wedding gowns with trains and while the gown is very nice, the train is too much. My gown had 10 foot train of lace, sequins and pearls.

Looks more like an aisle runner.

Man, what a story, Bride gets to alter ten minutes before her gown arrives??

This is totally bogus – it should only count toward the “record” if someone actually wore it to get married.

Why? This is why: “The stunt was sponsored in part by the organizers of Bucharest’s 2012 biannual Wedding Fair.” It’s called publicity stunt and it seems it worked pretty well! Plus the designer put his name on the map (for good and bad)

That’s pretty silly and a waste.

I did not want a train. I thought it would be too over the top and I wanted to keep things simple. That was until I started trying on dresses and started to feel like a fairy princess. My train wasn’t long, but it was a train. 24 years later and I still think my dress was very beautiful.
