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.

  • 22. kerstin  |  December 2, 2008 at 4:44 am

    In my opinion tis is an absolutely fantastic gown (except of the train – I personally don´t like trains) which I would love to wear myself. As I´m a big buff of petticoats (i´m wearing petticoats from 180 yards to 800 yards myself) the weight of the gown and the limited movement in it is a real must.
    Congratulations to Josephine and Jordan – you know how to dress.

    Incidentally, travellers are not whores, we cannot talk about a group of people as one. Yes sometimes their outfits are revealing but these girls, the majority, keep themselves for their weddings, that is why they marry early and remain early. Unless we are educated about people we will never forever be ignorant. I knew nothing about travellers until I opened my shop and I have made some fantastic wedding dresses for travellers and I have got to know them and understand them and we should not talk about them in the manner that we do. There is good and bad in all of us, and yes when they first come in for their dresses they can be rude but it is passion and excitement, travellers have stolen from me and abused me, so have black and white customers.
