It takes a long time to say I love you in China – over half a kilometre in fact according to bride Li Kuo who chose a wedding dress with a 520 metre bridal train in Wuhan, capital of central China’s Hubei province.
Li Kuo, 25, had secretly ordered the wedding dress with the massive bridal train from a company in Beijing which took three months to complete the order and charged 5,000 pounds for the work.
She chose the length specifically because in the local dialect the pronunciations of the numbers "5" "2" "0" sound the same as the words "I" "love" "you".
She said: "I wanted to give him a surprise and to make the wedding really special."
Her husband to be Xie Tao, 27, who works in a local art museum in Wuhan, said it was a lovely gesture although it was difficult to get to grips with.
He said: "I wanted to pick it up before it was unfolded but it weighed over 48 kilos – and was difficult to get a hold of. But it looks really beautiful just like my lovely bride when it was fitted."
The couple had these snaps taken at a local park before the wedding. When unveiled the train, total of 800 square metres – and it took more than 20 bridesmaids to carry it.
