Jake Bronstein began a whisper chain that successfully passed
through 59 people, a new world record. With his girlfriend Kristina Hoge
completely unaware of the plan, Bronstein sent the message “Kristina,
will you marry me?” around a roomful of strangers.
After the proposal
passed through 59 people, a random stranger whispered the message in the
ear of a completely shocked Hoge. She accepted onstage in front of a jubilant, tearful crowd.
Bronstein set the record on July 14, 2009 at a World Record
Appreciation Society event in New York City. Dan Rollman and CoreyHenderson were present to witness the feat.
Laura Tolley had 103 bridesmaids for her wedding to Fred Brown. The
bridal party consisted of 90 women and 13 men, all wearing dresses.
Tolley’s original intent was to be recognized by Guinness World
Records, but they denied her submission on grounds that the
bridesmaids didn’t have matching dresses.
In honor of the Royal Wedding, Phil McFarlane drummed 407 beats in 15

to count the beats.
