Sri Lanka is a developing country where there is a class of people who are not only extremely wealthy but determined to flaunt their wealth in the most ridiculously extravagant ways. The latest example of this kind of disgusting ostentation is a wedding that had 126 bridesmaids, 25 best men, 20 page boys and 23 flowers girls.
Here is a photo of the wedding party.
Why do this? Apparently because the couple wanted to break the previous record of 96 bridesmaids held by a Thai couple. So now they have earned the dubious honor of entering the Guinness Book of World Records, that compendium of silly records that is likely responsible for more waste of time, money, and energy than anything else.
These kinds of things are so pointless. All it takes is money and you can be sure that another idiot will come along willing to spend more money to break this stupid record.
