    Spring is around the corner and love is in the air in Shadong, China.

    One designer is taking advantage of the opportunity by having a model wear one of her bridal gowns throughout town to entice lovebirds who are thinking of getting hitched.

    However, it’s not just any ordinary wedding dress. It comes with a 331-foot-long train that requires an entourage of people and children to hold up.

    NetEase reported that staff from the wedding dress company in Jinan said the excessive length of the train was chosen because “only one in a hundred is chosen.”

    The piece is made of white lace and adorned with a thousand jewels that costs nearly 300,000 yuan ($46,000) to make.
