My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding Obsession

Here in the UK, there's a fairly new show called My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, which follows the working projects of a popular Gypsy wedding dress designer and wedding planner in Liverpool. Being an American who is new to living in England, I've never seen a Gypsy in person that I know of, so this show has me absolutely hooked!The wedding day is the most important day in a Gypsy girl's life, so they pull out all the stops. The dresses are so big they can't fit down the aisles, the cakes are enormous and the bigger the hair, the closer to God! Since most of my readers are from the United States, I thought I would share a clip so you could see the madness for yourself. If you can find a way to get your hands on this show to watch for yourselves, I'd recommend it. It's good fun!

  1. I live in Illinois and we have this show on TV here.

  2. Oh my gosh! I wish that aired over here. We have a Gypsy population in Memphis that looks just like this. I worked in a dress store in high school and they would come in all the time. I'd love to learn more about them!

  3. That sounds like a lot of fun!

  4. So I immediately googled the show and saw that some lovely YouTube user has posted a few episodes and I am now hooked! I needed a new TV guilty pleasure now that Gossip Girl is almost over for the season!

  5. It's airing on TLC in the states this summer. I CAN'T WAIT!!!

  6. How fun! I will watch when its comes to USA :) xxoo

  7. I am obsessed too I watch it on youtube! How great was the girl with the light up dress? I love that some of them have such thick Irish accents but have never set foot Ireland, it is just because they are kepy so cloistered within their own traveler community! Insane! And the 'grabbing'?!? Stop!
