Fight Against Maturity

You can’t make this stuff up


A bride's dress was so big it got stuck in the church door. Carly O'Brien's 25 stone [300 pounds or so?] dress was 8ft wide and cost £25,000.

It took twenty people an hour and a half to push 16-year-old Carly through the church door and up the aisle followed by her 60ft long train.

The 30-layer dress, covered with 3,000 Swarovski crystals, diamond head-dress and train meant dad Frank, 40, had to walk in front as there was no room alongside.

Carly, who spent nine and a half hours getting into the dress, was so exhausted when she got to the altar in Gloucester that the groom, Michael Coffey, 17, and 14 relatives carried her out.

Sister Crystal, 20, said: "Carly wanted her day bigger than Jordan's. She got it.

  2. I have three daughters, all married, and none of them spent a tenth of the money that the dress cost on the whole wedding. They are all still married to the same guys so I guess it worked anyway.
