Wedding Dress Record Breakers — Get the Look!

Every bride thinks her wedding dress is the best and most beautiful in the world. In the same way that every mum’s baby is the cutest in the world, these brides are 100% right. We wanted to find out a little more about the very best wedding dresses so we had a look in the Guinness Book of World Records to see what we could find - and what we did find might just surprise you…

  • World’s Most Expensive Wedding Dress - whatever your wedding budget is, we are pretty sure it doesn’t come anywhere close enough to include this little number from bridal couture designer Renee Strauss and Martin Katz Jewellers! Encrusted and embellished with 150 carats’ worth of quality diamonds, this pristine gown went on sale for a cool $12 million at the Luxury Brand Lifestyle Bridal Show in California

  • Most Crystals on a Wedding Gown - dressmakers at Özden Gelinlik Moda Tasarim Ltd spent five days preparing the £13,000 gown, which features 45,024 individual crystals to create an embellished fabric that is out of this world. We wonder how heavy that must have been for the bride!?

  • Most Pearls on a Wedding Gown - not to be outdone, Yumi Katsura of Japan designed a wedding dress fit for a princess using genuine Akoya cultured pearls. The gown was confirmed by Guinness officials to have used 13,262 individual pearls in its creation to take the record-holding title

  • Longest Wedding Dress Train - we are used to seeing long and dramatic wedding dress trains here at Bridal Fabrics and they are always a delight. Even we think that Shili Lanshan from China may have taken things a little bit too far though with her take on the trend, which was inspired by the Sea of Flowers in Xiamen. Decorated with petals, the train measures almost 2,600m (more than 8,500ft)

  • Fastest Marathon in a Wedding Gown - yes, it’s been done… and not just by women! Sarah Dudgeon holds the record for the girls with 3h16m44s and Lee Goodwin represents the boys with 3h00m54s. Think you can do better?

We would love to hear about YOUR wedding gown and to see photos too. Send them to us by email - all pictures go in our online gallery and our favourites get their own feature in our newsletter, which you can subscribe to here.
