This is the world’s biggest wedding dress (so far)
The giant wedding dress award goes to Josephine Doherty.
Apparently there is a “ginormous wedding dress” contest taking place.
It all began when British model Jordan decided to wear a record breaking, gigantic wedding dress with the world’s longest train – 900 metres. About six weeks ago, Miss Carly O’Brien wore a dress that broke Jordan’s record. Her 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, and weighed 25 stone (350 lbs.). It took 9 1/2 hours to get her into the dress, and an hour and a half for the wedding guests to push and pull her up the aisle. She was the new winner!
On August 3, 2006, her record was broken by Miss Josephine Doherty (now Mrs. Delaney) , in Tolworth, Surrey. Her wedding dress, which also cost £25,000 ($47,260.17), weighed 28 stone (392 pounds). However, it only took 2 hours to place her inside of the dress (as opposed to 9 hours for Miss O’Brien). Eight best men and five bridesmaids were required to carry the 60ft train, and it took 30 minutes to shove her and her dress into the requisite “Cinderella-style” horse drawn carriage (also used by Jordan and Miss O’Brien, now Mrs. Coffey). So the new Mrs. Delaney is the winner of the Ginormous Wedding Dress Contest – thus far.
The next winner will have to be lifted and deposited in the chapel with a crane.
