As the old saying goes, “the whole year’s work depends on a good start in spring.” With blossom season now in full bloom in Shandong, many couples are taking the scenic opportunity to get hitched.
To exploit this wave of weddings, a female model was recently seen strutting around town in a rather eye-catching wedding gown with a 101-meter-long train, requiring child labor to move.
According to NetEase, staff from the wedding dress company in Jinan told reporters that they had chosen that absurd length for a very specific reason, because: “Only one in a hundred is chosen.” Which doesn’t seem quite as impressive as being one in a million, but what can you do.
After all, the ultra-lengthy gown, made of white lace and adorned with a thousand pieces of jewels, already cost 300,000 RMB to make.
While you might think this could be in the running for the longest wedding dress in history, you’d be wrong. China happens to already own that record with a train that was 2,599 meters long.
But if 101 meters still seems a bit much for you, we could also recommend this orange dress made from megaphones and another one made from almost 1,000 white face masks, both for the environmentally-minded bride.
