Priyanka Chopra was talked about on the Internet after her marriage, and rightly so. The Bollywood star looked as stylish as ever when she married pop star Nick Jonas. And while her Ralph Lauren dress was a sight to behold, it was her veil that really stole the show. The accessory has attracted special attention due to its length, but it is far from the longest veil ever worn. Here’s a look at the longest one and how Chopra’s stack compares.
This is how long Chopra’s veil was
Chopra and Jonas had a busy wedding weekend, featuring two different ceremonies and several wedding looks. But the look that really went viral was the 75-foot-long veil she wore on Saturday.
In a Western ceremony held on the lawn of Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, Chopra wore a hand-sewn and embroidered dress that would have had two million pearl flakes sewn into it. Still, the photos of the long veil stretched out and stretched really stole the show.
This is how long the longest veil is
While Chopra’s 75-foot sail is impressive, it’s not the longest ever. In fact, it is far from it. According to Guinness World Records, the longest veil was worn by Vivian Shun-Wen Cheng in Chinese Taipei in December 2016 – and measured 19,921 feet and 11.73 inches long. The site explains:
The veil was a gift from the father of the bride and it took a team of 3 over 3 months to handcraft it, just finished in time for the big day. Made primarily from organza fabric, the veil wrapped around the perimeters of the chapel and the venue. Vivian was assisted by a team of volunteers helping to hold the veil; many were students from Jhongli High School. Going down the aisle was not easy but with patience she made it to the altar!
Other record wedding clothes
Cheng’s veil isn’t the only record-breaking wedding garment. Guinness reported in 2017 longest wedding dress train measured 26,559.71 feet long and was created in a French town called Caudry – which, oddly enough, is known for its lace production. It took 15 volunteers to help create the piece, which is long enough to almost cover Mount Everest.
The most expensive dress was created in a joint effort by Martin Katz Jewelers and Renee Strauss for the Luxury Brands Lifestyle Bridal Show held at the Ritz-Carlton on Rodeo Drive in Marina del Rey, Calif., in 2006. The dress, which was adorned with of 150 carats worth diamonds, cost about $ 12 million.
