World’s Biggest Wedding Dress

Carly O'Brien (16), of Gloucester, dreamed of a big wedding dress for her big  day.  And when she said big, she meant big.  A determined young lady, she made sure her dream came true. The resulting wedding gown, which cost  £25,000, had 30 layers of tulle, 3,000 Swarovski crystals, and a 60 foot long train.  It measured 8 feet wide, weighed 25 stone (350 lbs.), and it took 9 1/2 hours to get her into the dress.

The bride arrived  at the church in a glass carriage, pulled by six horses, and had to be lifted out by 3 men and assorted members of the wedding party. Her gown was so wide it became stuck in the church door, so she was  tugged  into the church.  Then 20 guests had to push and pull Carly up the aisle toward her groom, Michael Coffey, 17. This took an hour and a half, possibly the longest bride walk in history. Afterwards, she was so exhausted that her new husband and 14 relatives had to carry her from the chapel.

Nevertheless, she was determined to wear the dress at her reception, though she spent most of the evening sitting down.

Sounds dreamy.  You must see the pictures! Check it out.

    Am I just smoking something, or are the bride and groom still underage?

    I’m not sitting in a church for an hour and a half just to watch some spoiled child carried to the alter to marry another spoiled child. That’s just crazy.

  • 32. Louise  |  December 22, 2009 at 4:11 pm

    I make wedding dresses for travellers, can can, swarovski crystals, hoops, mini brides, best women the lot, let me know when you are ready. Without theswering please!

    That dress was beautiful but more plain fabric than anything, I make the travellers dresses with style and design and they are never ever copied. I do two pieces corsets and skirts or the dress, travellers prefer the corsets as they can shape the girls.
