Amazingly long bridal train displayed in Romania

BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) -- A hot air balloon has flown over downtown Bucharest carrying a model wearing what is now regarded as the world's longest bridal train.

The 1.85-mile-long (nearly 3-kilometer) ivory train on the model's wedding gown billowed out over a main boulevard in Romania's capital.

The Guinness Book of World Records recently recognized the item on the silk and lace wedding gown as the longest bridal train, beating a previous record held by a Dutch designer.

But pedestrians didn't seem to make much of Tuesday's media event, which was organized by the artifact's creators: the Andree Salon fashion house and the organizers of this year's biannual Wedding Fair in Bucharest.

A few bystanders looked up at the balloon, but many others ignored it.
