Something old, something HUGE: Record-breaking bridal train nearly TWO MILES long dangles from hot air balloon show off length

Here comes the bride…

Eventually … and at the end of a very, very long bridal train…

A hot air balloon floated over Bucharest yesterday carrying a model wearing the world's longest bridal train.

The 1.85-mile-long ivory train on the model's wedding gown billowed out over a main boulevard in Romania's capital.

The Guinness Book of World Records on Monday recognized the item on the silk and lace gown as the world’s longest train, beating the previous record held by a Dutch designer.

Taking 100 days to create, the train was crafted by a team of 10 seamstresses, said Andree Salon fashion house spokeswoman Lavinia Lascae.

The lace was imported from France, while taffeta and other fabrics were purchased from Italy, costing around £5,000.

Beating a Dutch designer to the record had an added dimension for Romanians, as many are still angry after the Netherlands opposed its entry into the European Union's visa-free travel zone.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte recently demanded that Romania and Bulgaria do more to reform their justice systems and combat corruption and organized crime before he would support integration.

"If the Netherlands does not allow us into Europe, we'll take them out of the world records book," said Alin Caraman, an organizer of the Romanian wedding fair.
