The wedding gown that 17-year-old model Ema Dumitrescu wore has been declared the longest in the world, with a train stretching up to 2,750m behind her! The previous record was held by a Dutch designer, which was at 2,488m. The dress was worn during a Guinness World Record attempt in Bucharest on 20 March.

It reportedly took 100 days for the dress to be made and had to be made with the help of 10 seamstresses using 1,857 needles. The gown was organised by the Andree Salon fashion house and the organisers of this year's biannual Wedding Fair in Bucharest.

The Telegraph reported the crafting of the dress required 4,700m of taffeta, 5.5m of Chantilly lace, 45m of lining, 1,857 sewing needles and 150 spools of threads. The lace was imported from France, while the taffeta and other fabrics were purchased from Italy. The cost of the material was £5,000.

In 2009, a Chinese bride made a bid for the record books when she turned up for her wedding wearing a 1.4-mile long gown. It took 200 guests more than three hours to unroll Lin Rong's train and pin on the 9,999 red silk roses for her wedding.
