In an extravagant act of love, husband-to-be Zhao Peng created for his bride, Lin Rong, what he hopes will be the world’s longest wedding dress. It took the 200 guests a whopping three hours to unroll the train and decorate it with 9,999 silk roses. The Chinese word for “nine” sounds exactly the same as the Chinese word for “old” or “lasting.” Asian people love the play on words.
After the wedding, Zhao cut the dress down to 1,984.1022m, representing Lin’s date of birth, and added 608 crystals, one for every day they had dated.
It’s not the first time Chinese brides have tried to break records this way. Last year, a couple in Guangzhou broke the domestic record with the bride’s 200.8m-long dress, which, they said, celebrated the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Oh, fobulous love!
