Sri Lankan couple Nisansala and Nalin break world record with 126 bridesmaids train

Southern brides in the U.S. are usually thought to take the cake for having the most bridesmaids included in their pearl-wearing, sorority-sister-filled, monogrammed-to-the-nines wedding ceremonies.

But one bride in Sri Lanka, Nisansala, has officially dominated the bridesmaids department, breaking the Guinness World Record with her husband, Nalin, for having the most bridesmaids in their Nov. 8 wedding ceremony in Negombo.

The whopping 126 bridesmaids, adorned in long purple dresses with white flowers in their perfectly pulled-back hair, beats the previous record from a wedding in Bangkok, Thailand, that had a mere 96 bridesmaids.

The over-the-top number of bridesmaids was the brainchild of the bride's sister, famous Sri Lankan bridal gown designer, Champi Siriwardana, who helped plan the wedding and had her eyes set on the Guinness World Records prize.

The lavender ladies had good company during the nuptials, though. The groom also had a strong representation with 25 best men and 20 page boys.

And with a wedding so lavish, it only seems appropriate that the aisle be riddled with flower petals for the bride to make her grand entrance. In order to so, Nisanala had 23 flower girls.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.
