No, it’s not a joke! In the Chinese city of Guangzhou, a soon-to-be bride’s fiancé hired a local dressmaker to design and create the unique gown. The couple wanted to do something memorable and to celebrate the 2008 Olympics in China. Their nuptials are set for Monday, October 15th. The gown will be auctioned off after the ceremony with the proceeds going to charity.
Can you even imagine the amount of fabric in that Gown? 200.8 meters is about 659 feet and if you figure a 12 foot wide train, that comes to about 879 yards of fabric. Yikes! Can you imagine trying to pull that? You couldn’t! And just how would you bustle it for dancing? It has to be detachable. You couldn’t even get into the bathroom with it on. You’d need another limo just to stuff it into! Geeze, would you want a train that long on your Wedding Gown?
