As many know, I am a card carrying member of the reality TV obsessed. The interest is strong – but equally matched by my love of all things wedding…..enter My Big Fat Gypsy Weddings on TLC.
The show documents the the lives of Gypsy and Irish Traveler brides, living in Britain, as they prepare for their over-the-top weddings.
TLC describes it as a “community of contrasts, living by centuries-old religious and cultural traditions, but at the same time embracing the flashier side of the celebrity and fashion-focused times in which we live.”
Everything from the hair, dresses and horse drawn carriages are LARGE and in charge…
While this all may be a little much for most modern US brides, I strongly recommend catching an episode while taking a break from wedding planning.
