'My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding': Say Yes to the Stress (Exclusive Video)
If you haven’t been able to catch TLC’s My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, you just have to. It documents the lifestyles of nomadic British and Irish gypsies whose culture is quickly changing as modern influences seep into its communities. New episodes air Fridays at 10 p.m.
While the documentary series takes a broad look at these “travelers,” it takes a special interest in its over-the-top wedding traditions. Commonly, women marry in their teens and move out of their parents’ home and into their husband’s for a life as a housewife and mother.
For many of these women, the wedding may truly be the only day in which it can be all about them. So, it stands that everything about the wedding should be just as grand.
Watch our exclusive sneak peek at this bride who has made sure no one will ever forget her wedding dress.
