Wonderful Wedding Records

Wonderful Wedding Records

We all love a good wedding and we all love an exciting world record. Combine the two and it’s an even greater reason to celebrate! Here are some weird, wacky and wonderful wedding world records:

Most Royal Wedding Souvenirs in a Wedding Dress

Us Brits get a bit crazy over a Royal wedding, but none more so than Jon Burkhart who decided to set a world record by donning a wedding dress and seeing how much Royal souvenirs he could stuff down it in 30 seconds. Some people will do anything for a wedding! April 29th 2011, in London, Jon managed an impressive 13 stuffed souvenirs in 30 seconds. What a legend!

Biggest Wedding Cake

In 2004, a team of 58 chefs (yes, 58!) baked a colossal wedding cake at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut, USA. There were 7 tiers and the cake weighed a whopping 15,000 pounds including 5,000 pounds of frosting. Each tier had to be lifted by a forklift truck to put into position.

Longest Dress Train

A bridal salon in Cyprus once made a wedding dress with a bridal train of 4,468 feet in length. We should imagine the bride needed quite a few bridesmaids to help her lift that down the aisle as that train was nearly a mile long! Your wedding might not be world-record breaking, but make sure you have smashing memories by hiring a Bournemouth Wedding Photographer like Nick Rutter Bournemouths Number 1 Wedding Photographer

Oldest Bridesmaid

This record goes to show that you’re never too old to be a bridesmaid. Edith Guildford of the UK was a respectable 105 years old when she was asked to be a bridesmaid. As long as they are a close friend or family member, age means nothing when it comes to wanting support on your big day.

Largest Pet Wedding

If you’ve ever thought your pet needs nuptials then head to Littleton, Colorado where doggie ‘I dos’ are highly popular. In May 2007, the town of Littleton hosted a marriage ceremony for 178 canines. If that’s rather too much of a clean-up job for you to cope with, why not train your pooch to carry the rings down the aisle instead?

Longest Engagement

Think you’ve been waiting an age between engagement and wedding? Then how about 67 years of waiting? A Mexican couple were in no rush when they wed at the age of 82, a stunning 67 years after getting engaged. While waiting to get married has its benefits, such as booking in advance, discounts and planning – when months turns into decades, it might be time to discuss commitment issues.

Oldest Bride

Never feel too old to be walked down the aisle. Minnie Munro was 102 years old when she finally got to day ‘I will’. She married a man twenty years her junior too, so never give up hope of finding your soul mate, no matter how many wrinkles you might have!
