VIDEO: World’s longest wedding dress train is 8-km long, sets Guinness Record
The world’s longest wedding dress has been unveiled in Caudry, a French town on just a few days ago, setting a new Guinness World record.
The town, famous for its production of lace, created a wedding dress that has a 8,095.40 m (26,559.71 ft) train, which is said to be enough cloth to cover Mount Everest.
On 9 December, 2017, construction company Dynamic Projects unveiled an elaborate wedding gown with a 8km-long train at Caudry, a French town famous for its production of lace.
The dress was created by the construction company Dynamic Projects with the help of 15 volunteers. They spent more than two months to stitch individual pieces of the train and then assemble all of it together.
Professional surveyor Christophe Dumont of Cabinet Caron-Briffaut and Guinness World Records adjudicator Rob Molloy, who presented a certificate to the company, looked after the measurements.
The attempt took place at an annual fundraising event AMF Telethon. The event raised money for non-profit organisations such as the French Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Pictures of the world’s longest wedding dress was posted on the Twitter page of Guinness World Records, with the caption, “Breaking: World’s longest wedding dress train could almost cover Mount Everest.” The original train that had been manufactured for their previous successful attempt in 2006 was also incorporated by the team.
