Imagine a wedding dress with a train 1.2 miles long. The dress, recently worn by a Chinese bride, may qualify for not one but two world records: both the length of the train and the number of silk roses sewn on the dress (9,999) are believed to top the old records. Guinness has been informed. The previous record for the length of a wedding dress train was 1.5 kilometers, or approximately 9/10 of a mile. No walking down the aisle for this bride!
