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?

Absolutely ridiculous. What an attention seeker to do something so dumb. something Kim K would do.

I rather ride on a real train than drag around a 1.85 mile wedding dress train.

Kim on

That just may be the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen.

That 2 mile train just got Romanian design house Andree Salon in the National Press. For them, I would say it was a BARGAIN! I can’t believe people think it was made for any other reason, like an actual wedding train….. DUH!

Sarah on

Yeah, it’s not dumb at all. It’s PR genius!

NM on

This is the DUMBEST thing I’ve ever seen. I agree, what a total waste of time and money. It’s a dress that will NEVER be worn at any wedding, it’s all for show. It was only made to break a world record. RIDICULOUS!

Jae on

So while people in Bucharest are starving to death, these people waste money on a dress that someone can’t reasonably wear in a wedding!

Toni on

wow, what a waste of….everything…..

Conner210 on

This is the dumbest story and a complete waste.

Zoe Moon on

The dress is gorgeous, but the train is just too long. I understand about wanting to break the world record. But there is nothing on the train that makes it so special. It is just a plain long piece of fabric.
