Sri Lankan Couple Break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Wedding With 126 Bridesmaids

Posted in: ,

Nisansala and Nalin, a Sri Lankan couple who married this week in their capital city of Colombo have broken the Guinness World Record for the largest wedding party. All of the wedding party - bride, groom, 126 bridesmaids, 25 best men, 20 page boys and 23 flower girls - were styled by Nisansala's sister-in-law Champi Siriwardana, who was the first to suggest they go for the world record bid - in richly embroidered traditional costumes in purple and gold colors.

Champi is one of Sri Lanka's leading wedding planners and dress designers, and the guest of honour at the ceremony was the First Lady, Shiranthi Rajapaksa, wife of President Mahinda Rajapaksa. The ceremony was held under strict Guinness Book of World Record conditions, and the 126 bridesmaids beat out the previous record of 96 by a Thai couple.

'Breaking the Guinness world record is no mean feat and one that I cannot achieve alone,' said Champi, who suggested the world record attempt. 'It is a great responsibility and challenge. There can be no mistakes.'
