Big Fat Gypsy Weddings.....


My favourite programs on TV are usually reality TV programs so when I saw an advert about gypsy weddings in the UK I thought that sounded interesting and so I watched it when it was on and it really was an amazing program.

Most people including British people know very little about the gypsies which in turn are a private community that do not mix a lot with everyone else, here in the UK there are 2 types or groups of gypsies, the Romani Gypsies and the Travellers which originally came from Ireland but have been here for many generations, the program I watched was about the Travellers community which still holds a very strong Irish accent even though they have been here for so long which can only mean that they do keep together and hardly mix with the rest of us.

Most people think of Gypsies as low class people with no morals what so ever, to be honest some gypsies are to blame for this bad reputation but in general good and bad are in every community, this program showed a rare insight into the Traveller community, it showed the prejudice they sometimes encounter but one thing for sure, it showed that when it comes to glitter, tack and over the top taste they are by far the best.

Someone on the program said that she never met any group of people with a higher moral values than the gypsies, obviously she hadn't met many people but there is some truth to what she said, even though the program showed many teenage gypsy girls dressed in very skimpy clothes that barely covered them yet this was their way of attracting men, according to gypsy moral laws, girls are not allowed to have a boyfriend and therefore end up getting married at a very young age usually before their 18th birthday and until then they live at their parents house and are not allowed to sleep with men out of wedding lock, that was something I never knew and they seem to believe strongly in it.

Most gypsy girls start saving for their wedding at a very young age and they have this obsession about the size of their wedding dresses, the bigger the better, the size of these dresses are amazing and unlike anything I have ever seen in my life, some of the dresses weight about 170 KG! yes!! in fact the dress maker said most girls end up with permanent scars on their hips due to the massive weight of their dresses yet they will not go for anything else! it was very weird seeing them trying to get into their wedding carriages with these dresses.

The weddings and clothes are out of this world, talk about tacky but that is the way they like it, not every ones idea of a perfect wedding but each to their own....

These videos show some clips of the program, if you can get the full program then do watch it, very strange and an eye opener:


Here is a link to another short clip
The full program can be watched her but I am not sure if it is available outside of the UK

Hello AL!
Nice post. I had no idea that the gypsies were originally Irish( I mean some of them).
They are always present in English litterature and I thaught they were Rom like those in other countries.
Their dresses have nothing to envy to Libyan brides dresses. :)your friend H.

hi
iam a english romany gypsy born in england and this programme mbfgw was made about the irish traveller's as you said they go on very diffrant to us yes we have the same respect's no living together before marriage and we only marry our own kind but we do not dress or act like that and channel 4 who broad casted this programme made them look like a laurghing stock and of course we get tared with the same brush.
there are new programmes coming out about us that you should look out for our way of going on there will be a miss gypsy uk pagent filmed soon were we can show how we live our lives and get a chance to win a crown to be ambasdor of our comunity it is not just a beautiy contest but for travellers to stand up for what we beleave in there will also be a travellers got talent show it will all be broadcasted by skt tv no more channel 4 making us look stupid it will be done our way and then you will see the real us we dont all wear huge dresses and there is no such thing as grabing in the english romany comunity we kourt like everyone else then get married no wonder why people think were freak's after watching that load of rubbish.
thank you for listening.
