My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding is back, providing a window into the amazing world of the gypsy wedding. Once again viewers up and down the country have been left stunned (in a gleeful yet judgemental way) at the sheer size of the dresses.
As we discovered during the first programme in 2010, in gypsy circles, the objective of every bride is to have a dress which is bigger, poofier and more outrageous than all of her friends. And as each year passes, the dresses have grown and grown now reaching epic proportions. Let’s just hope prom dresses aren’t heading the same way.
Okay so get ready for it. Here comes a dress from the new programme:
Quick. Get her out.
It’s like the dress equivalent of a quicksand. She’s going to dissapear any minute.
Do we detect fairy lights?
Ah well at least it looks easy to walk in.
It doesn’t get any better going down the aisle either. One of the most classic moments of the 2010 show, was watching one of the brides have to do the ol’ bridal kick step march. If you’ve never had the joy of watching this graceless entrance, it’s where the birde’s skirt is so big & heavy she has to kick the dress forward to make room to take her step. And as you can image. It looks. just. great.
If you’ve missed it so far you can catch up on 4od. Best watched with chocolate and your most judgemental friend.
