Record-Breaking Two-Mile Bridal Train Displayed In Rome

If a bride really wants to turn heads, nothing could possibly top wearing Gianni Molaro’s latest wedding gown. The Italian designer’s silk and tulle dress features a train that’s nearly two miles long!

The record-breaking style was displayed this week cascading down the steps of the Trinita dei Monti Renaissance church in Rome, Italy, to celebrate the opening of Molaro’s new design studio. According to the Daily Mail, the sheer gauzy train, made of 1.86 miles of tulle and six miles of silk , was worn by Elena De Angelis last September for her wedding to Ferdinand Pucci in Casal di Princice in Naples.


It took dozens of seamstresses months to create, and required 600 volunteers to keep it off the ground as De Angelis drove to the church in a vintage car. We imagine that was quite a sight for her 20,000 guests and thousands of onlookers. This bridal train now ties for the world’s longest–Andree Salon, a Bucharest fashion label, debuted an equally long style flowing down from a hot air balloon earlier this year.

“I was really grateful to be asked to design this veil,” Molaro told the Sun last year. “I met tens of thousands of people on the way to the church who complimented my idea. I wanted this veil to symbolize peace and hope and I think we have achieved this. This has been one of the biggest moments in my career as a designer.” We believe it was also one of the longest moments.

Romania Debuts Record-Breaking Bridal Gown

As the latest record-we-didn’t-know-you could-break, a Romanian design house debuted the longest bridal train known to man.

The Andree Salon, a Bucharest fashion label, hired 10 seamstresses to toil away on the Guinness World Record-breaking dress for 100 days. The imported material alone, including French lace and Italian taffeta, cost around $7,300. That’s not including labor and the dramatic floating runway show.

On Tuesday, a model wearing the dress was hoisted into the air outside Bucharest’s Palace of the Parliament, for all the world to see- in particular- The Netherlands. The Dutch country previously held the longest train record (it wasn’t even a mile, ha!). The victory was particularly sweet, in light of a feud sparked between the two countries, after Dutch leaders campaigned to keep Romania out of the European Union’s visa-free travel zone.


“If the Netherlands does not allow us into Europe, we’ll take them out of the world records book,” Alin Caraman, an organizer of the train’s big debut, told the Associated Press.

And they did, with the near-maniacal passion of a bridezilla and a 1.85-mile train, roughly the width of Manhattan. If a real bride were to walk down the aisle in that dress, she’d need a venue the size of four football fields and an entire NFL team of bridesmaids to hold the train. Don’t get any funny ideas, Kardashians.
