    • whores


      • SHE WAS FIXED LIKE A COMPLETE SUPER MODEL UNLIKE SOME 1 ELSE ON HERE WITH BRIGHT ORANGE BRIDESMAID DRESSES HAHAHAHA


  14. im a cuntry gurl and ive grown up with travellers but i tink its very rong to paint all cuntry gurls wit de 1 brush, dere called hores most of the time but there is the good and the bad in every1 and neither culture should be put down… I grew up around travlers and the travler way is the only way of life that i know and dare is de good and the bad in everyone… I think that most of these weddings are beautiful and i dont know why people feel the need to make a laff of them… some cuntry people have weddings like this aswel and u dont see people slagging them… there are some very racist people out there but there aint nuttin that can be done for them.. i am with a mcdonagh boy and we are hopefully getting married in the next 2years, at the moment im at home but next year im going to college, it doesnt matter if your a traveller or not u can stil have a future so i dont know why people say that travellers dont know how to work and that they are illiterate because a traveller girl or boy chooses their future they do what they want just as every1 else does what they want, im only 17 but that doesnt matter, age is only a number and people have no right to judge. i think this website is a joke and huever set it up should be ashamed of themselves. travellers have their own culture and they are proud of it, if there wasnt any such thing as travellers people would find some other people to talk about. at the end of the day its only happiness that matters. i dont think that this site is fair in any way and i think no travellers should bother even commentin on this anymore because all these low lifes aint gonna stop over some other peoples comments….lets not lower ourselves to their level..xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx BEAUTIFUL GIRLS


    • sad story ha hah a ha


      • YA DOPEY BASTERD HA HA


  15. Where in the world do these wedding happen? I don’t see this type of wedding at ALL in America. Sorry to anyone who has to deal with the concept of this being normal.


    • That’s cuz they’re traveler’s (tinkers, gypsies) weddings. There isn’t the culture in America. But if you look along the southern border you’ll see some Mexican weddings that are just as colorful.


    • yes, in america their are none of these wedding that i have seen. and i come from a line of gypsy that moved to the states and we are FAR from this.


    • In the UK and Ireland. Your average UK wedding is less extravagant though!


  16. Where do they find these awful dresses? The brides either look like a cocoanut snowball or a pole dancer with a long, long train.

    The bridesmaids are so far over the top that their dresses can’t even be called costumes. They are jokes.

    And the brides are all so big and brassy and the husbands such little twerps.


    • ures so jelous ,ure a whore who cant afford shite never mind a big wedding


      • Lol, in reply to Gypsy Girl- Your retort has highlighted the fact that , these weddings are all about money and displays of wealth, and goes to prove that there is one thing money cant buy and that’s class!


      • Yet travellers preach that they should not be judged, yet they are the first to judge everyone who is not a traveller a “slut/whore/hoar (depending on spelling)” when someone offers an iota of criticism…

        Hypocrisy, much?

        Oh, and I do not need to justify my own income to someone whose daddy pays for everything. Maybe I’m old fashioned, I just think that’s tacky.


      • wow, you all are hypocritical bastards. maybe they wouldnt complain if all your criticism wasnt just biased bull shit. geeez. im an american and have i never seen such racism before. and america is known to be ass holes. what makes you better then a gypsy eh? so you live a different life style. doesnt make you any better you pompous ass holes.


      • how the hell is it tacky you father and mother has to pay for the wedding your not going to get it free


  17. oh they look lovesly ma doll xxxxxxxxxxxxx


  18. Is it wrong to say I kinda like the red and black bridesmaids gowns in the last couple photos. Maybe not that poofy, but they’re a nice combination…lol


  19. im am a country girl i was reared up with travellers and still am i think these dresses are outstandin the problem is countryv ppl have no style and wen they get married the like to go plain and simple were as traveller girls like to go all out to make it a day to remember ino when i get married i will be havin a dress like these on you ppl call these ugly they probley cost more then you do


  20. I totally love the pink-and-black dresses, very interesting and awesome!


  21. they all look ansum n i carnt wait for ma wedding


  22. The peach dresses are lovely the pink n black are nice to but the girls think they are all it ( yeah right ) xxxxxx


    • DA GIRLS R OUTSTANDIN (MOST OF DEM)!


  23. Why don’t we have weddings like this in the U.S.?


    • I’m with Heather!


      • DATS BECUZ THER ARENT ANY TRAVELLERS OVER THERE, CUM OVER 2 ENGLAND ND IRELAND AND U WILL SEE DA BEST TRAVELLER WEDDINGS EVER. AND DATS A FACT!!!!!!!!!


      • Yes there are Rummanys in the US that moved from Ireland and England and even Turey awhile ago. But we usually have big Sweet 16s and not weddings.


  24. For those asking about why they don’t have weddings like this in the US, it’s because these weddings are (more likely than not) Irish Traveller weddings, and you find the largest concentration of them in the UK and surrounding areas.
    As for me, I’ve wondered how those poor brides even maneuver in what has to be about 50 lbs. of tulle. Even simple things like sitting, walking, and going through doorways has to be a nightmare. I know I took those into consideration when I ~made~ my wedding gown.


    • Watch My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. It shows how hard it is for them to walk. They kind of have to kick outwards to get all the dress in front of them. And sitting is a problem. And some of the dresses are so heavy they cause bruising. They say that the more the bruising, the better the dress!


      • Now that’s just stupid. Why would a dress that would bruise the wearer with its weight be any good?


  25. i’m a traveller my self. i also like big weddings but, the faces i see in them dresses don’t desserve to get married. they should be burnt alive from the second you were born. what’s wrong with the shoken orange bridesmaid dresses, i wouldn’t put them on a dog that’s ready to be put down. the transexual fat bastard in the orange bridesmaid dress, you make a show of all travellers. with your proxtile yellow head on ya, it needs to a stump. your like vickey pollard. i bet your not married ha ha ha ha you big fat peice shite i just don’t want to talk about you any more cus your a load of prosticutes.


    • HOLD ON A MINUTE HERE NOW, DIS IS FOR U MAGGIE GOD FOR GIVE YA. YA COMMON WHORE. YA JELOUS SHITE WHO DO U THINK U ARE TALKN ABOUT THEM GIRLS. THERE DRESSES WERE GORJUZ, UR JELOUS DAT U WONT BE ABLE 2 AFFORD A WEDDIN LIKE DAT. ID LOVE 2 SKULL DRAG UR NITY HEAD YA TRAMP. YA SLUT!!!!!!


    • you should be ashamed of your self coming out with the shit that you are, who ever u are by the hate thats coming out of ye i’d say your come upins will soon be upon ye.


    • lol


      • MAGGIE U SICK WHORE WUD U LIKE TO BE BURNT ALIVE SICK BRAIN CRYING A CHILD LIKE DAT!!

  26. The wedding in some of these photos is finished…in the divorce process…kaput!

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1325602/Joan-Furey-files-divorce-year-marriage-8-months-pregnant.html


    • I find it really sad that she felt like she had to go through with a wedding she wasn’t sure about.

      She is a very pretty lass, doesn’t need all of that get up on her, and she could do an awful lot better than the twonk she married.

      I wish her and her son the very best for the future x


      • I’m glad she has the balls to not do what everyone in her community expects of her. She’s a strong girl. That misogynistic mentality among the travelers is ridiculous. Where would ANY of those men be without their women? No where.


  27. yea 4 the 2 christinas u think ur better then every1 else having big dresses from liverpool big dresses is alot of good when u have dogs lifes sure didnt christina that got married 2 martin cut him and didnt he beat her when they were only a couple weeks married she broke da window of his new van and the got separated 4 couple weeks and 4 pats christina shes saparated sence shes married her photo shouldnt even be up here i heard of the time when ur mummy hadnt got the price of food walking around wit muck up 2 here waist so just remember were u came from the 2 of u has nothing 2 be posh about


    • jealously is an awuful diease, it comes back to bite you on the butt. I see that the two christina’s are absoutly beautiful and are a credit to their families. For the bitches who can only ever live as wannabe,s to what these girls are ye,ll never been anything more than scum who lives wishing that ye could be what yer not.

  28. The two holding the doves are already divorced


  29. hello every one be cerefull wat u say about the pink and black bridesmaids i was one of them i am the brides sisster bab next person to be igrent is dead ok xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


  30. Fascinating-bad taste in the extreme!!! The travellers comments are an amazing picture of a sub culture that is uneducated, tacky and bitter.
    I cannot belive that none of them want to educate their children so they can rise above the dregs of society that they are. The brides and guests are some of the skankiest women I have ever seen and they should be ashamed of the way their children are wasting tax payers money. I would love to see them in deportment school. What about ladette to lady for these skanks?


  31. I wanna YAK!!!!


  32. im not a traveller but i think your weddings are beautiful and n just how i would like mine to be i think all brides should have a wedding like this on her big day coz its a 1 in a life time thing and i think alot of people are pretty much jelouse of travelers weddings and would love to have the weddings they do x


    • thxs most travellers weddings do be nice sum or just plain old tacky


  33. I cannot stand traveller weddings. Am I the only sane person here?!!! Yes. We all have that chance and that oppurtunity to be happy. But, come on now. These pictures are hideous. The girl in the blue dress, in the last picture, looks like she’s constipated, or she wants to rrun away. In all retrospect, I don’t blame her. Sure. I’m a very open-minded person. But, as an open-minded person, I also have s shear sense of honesty, and truth. Think about. I’m not talking about the ways, or the initial culture of the travellers. But the style I can safely say is atrocious. You have girls that look like they are fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, and even eighteen years old, wearing layers of makeup like a thrity yea old. Even alot of thrirty year olds, dont’ wear that much make up. Also, the bride’s dresses are gregarious, and have to be uncomfortable. You have ten or twelve pounds of lace, or silk, or organza, as a dress, then you have another twenty pounds, added on with the overlapping ridiculous train. Most of all, when it comes to the bridesmaids, they all look like prostitutes or drag queens in training. Now really, depending on the weather (even still) let’s say if it really sweltering outside, or extremely cold. Let’s say for the girls in pictures 9,10,and 11, wear those dresses in 85, or god-forbid 90 degree heat. they would lose a good ten pounds from sweating, and most likely suffer a heat stroke. All in all, it is pretty tragic. But, the people involved in these types of weddings, that I believe truly suffer, are the children. They have to wear scantily clad, skimpy, and tawdry outfits throught the whole thing. they are fed so much negativity, anf obscure information about their bodies, that they carry that with them thorughout their childhood, adolescence and finally adulthood. Sure, fashions, and trends cahnge all the time. But pyschological scars can reamin forever. That’s my take on all of it.


    • it seems to me that you must be scared from something, when your asuming that other people are carrying baggage. Did it never assume to you that these girls are getting what they have wanted. I have been to plenty of weddings and most of them could take a few tips of these girls for a bit of style.i heard recently on t.v where a bride choose her uglist friends and horrible dresses so that she could shine, traveller girls would never be so selfish, they want all involved to look great. And they always do. so to all who are obviously jealous if A line dresses are your thing then so be it, but dont think that because you could never have the good taste or the know how to look stunning on such a big day then f off and mind your bussiness.


  34. no matter what your opinions are on traveller weddings at least the girls have the decency to get married in the first place!i was married to a boxing trainer and met a lot of travellers at the shows i went to never had a problem with any of them! maybe if some of the young girls today lived by traveller standards then we wouldn’t have so many single mothers! i myself am divorced now and miss the contact that i had with travellers! they are decent hard working people so stop slagging them off until you get to know them personally!


  35. Egads! I guess Cinderella lives!


  36. Y da fuck r ye country ppl makin a laugh of tavelle weddings ta tell ya de truth i didnt like de orange brideasmaids wivh de big tails but it was christinas likeings as long as she was happy wivh her stuff n happi de da of her wedding dats all dat mtters

    • she must be young cuz shes a piki and shes pregnant, dey gets married so young and have lots of babies jus 2 get more dole


      • well at least unlike ye we dont have to drop our knickrs to try to get pregnet before the ring is on the finger. us and our men are well able o keep it in our pants if we were engaged for forty year.


    • dont you know alot about other peoples lives, have you got a man or are u able to get preggres as u say. who ever u are u’ll never have any luck for trying to talk about people who are doing nobody any harm.

  49. Chav Chav Chav! THAT’S ALL I SEE! And is that a young girl all made up to look like a hooker in the 3rd from last photo, there on the right?!


    • and what do u look like i’d say your a bute.do ye know what turns my stomach is country girls and traveller girls who are so bad minded that they have to critize other people for what they do.ye know what i have always believed if you have nothing good to say then say nothing at all. the dresses that traveller girls get are beautiful if a celebrity wore one of these dresses and viveen westword made it, o how wonderful they would be said to be, but because its a traveller girl there critized. travellers have suffered all there lives at the hands of country peole from the time they are born even in the hospitals the country ones are jealous if a girl gets flowers brought into her. there giving the nurses bother because the country girls dont get the same respect shown to them from there families. traveller culture is so diverse that country people will never understand what we are about, and qute frankly couldnt care less. if we could just be left alone to do our own thing then ye can do yer own thing and do worry what our values are.


  50. up the travellers any1 tat has a promblem wit d way travellers ways can kiss my arse.

  57. handicape pig


  58. slow face


  59. on my wedding day im gonna have me a big dress, i think you all are descriminating us by labelling our weddings as tacky? our weddings are how we want them so stop being so nasty! grow up a bit.


  60. why cant people just live and let live no one makes comments on asian weddings or indian weddings so why should travellers be any different .it is there way of life and culture.if people want a flamboiant style wedding then each unto there own i say.and im sorry but travllers have a bad name because of biggots in todays so called normal society. there human beings and entitled to live as such.


  61. THE RED AND BLACK DRESSES WERE HORABLE COULD OF GOT NICER ONES WEDDING DRESS WAS LOVELY


  62. SORRY AMY AGAIN I MEAN PINK AND BLACK


  63. I’d just like to know how these extremely expensive dresses are paid for. Why not go for a less expensive dress and put the money into a nicer caravan for after the wedding?
    And why on the Big Fat Gypsy Wedding show don’t the show any fathers???


  64. just to correct last sentence quite frankly we dont care what country people thing live and let live. and before ye talk about the spelling i posted last comment before i read it back.


  65. Although I would not pick the types of dresses on this site for myself, I respect that that is the way gypsies and travellers want to dress for there wedding its probably the biggest day of there life so why shouldn’t they wear over the top dresses?
    I grew up down the road from a large traveller site and have never had a problem with them, infact whenever I have come across them young, old, male or female they have shown me nothing but respect they always smile at you if you pass them in the street and will always say thank you if you hold a door open for them which is more than I can say for a lot of us “country” lot!
    You ridicule there way of life, the way they dress. But just go to any high street on a Friday night and you will see “country girls” throwing up in the street, flashing there tits/ arses, wearing no more than what a lot of the girls in the photo’s are wearing. Pot, kettle, black comes to mind! Maybe if we started to show them some respect (which quite honestly I think they have seen very little of) they might start to feel differently about us…….. Just a thought.


  66. These dresses and weddings must cost thousands

    Myself, I would rather put the money to better use…like perhaps an education?

    The spelling in the travellers comments are a dead giveaway…its really very sad as denying a child an education is the worst kind abuse and neglect

    As my brilliant Grandfather used to say:

    “To be educated is to be a better human being”


    • speaking of education…i should have said “denying a child an education is the kind OF abuse and neglect”


      • how the hell is a mother and father denying a child an education we chose to leave school at a early age and not everyone leaves school at 11 years of age, why dont you mind your fucking business you dirty bitch.


      • Parents in the US would go to JAIL if they took the kids out of school permanantly in elementary/middle school age! There are MANDATORY ATTENDANCE LAWS! Teens are allowed to drop out and get their GED after 9th grade, but requires parental consent, This is a shame that these girls are almost illiterate, but they sure can scrub a trailer and curse up a storm on a blog!.


  67. many people have left not very nice comments, well they need to get a life. IF AS YOU SAY YOU ARE !COUNTRY PEOPLE then i thought you would be intellectual individuals! what a disgrace that you lower yourselves to tickle tackle about a girls wedding dress!What you dont seem to realise is that this is the biggest day of the girls lives, and if they want a dress the size of big ben then so be it! I personally think that all the girls dresses are beautifull, and it is so nice to see the girls so traditional and take married life seriously.Well done girls and good luck to you all!


  68. Question: Are these comments jokes?? I pray to God they are. Same with the pictures of the weddings. Are they jokes? Do peeps really dress like this for their weddings? WTH????


  69. I think these weddings look fantastic!
    I also think it is wonderful that the families put such a priority on the big day and give the girls what they really want.

    From a cultural standpoint, I think it is a very interesting tradition. It would make a wonderful sociological study for a Grad student.

    I think many girls dream of being a princess for a day! People love to dress up too, thus the array of dresses on the guests. Everyone seems to be okay with how they look and they appear to be having a great time. I say GO FOR IT!


  70. My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding just started airing on TLC over here in Canada. I have to admit, I first came across this site and thought “Oh my god, what is wrong with these girls.. they look like sk*anks!”.
    BUT thanks to that show, I am shown a completely different side of their lives. They may look like prostitots in their dresses but their morals and ethics are so high it makes most North American girls seem like common whores. I know that I would not be able to live a life of a gypsy girl. Obviously it is completely normal for them to live their lives the way that they do but it is still a hard life! (from an outsiders perspective).
    I am 22 and am getting married over here in Canada. It’s sort of young to get married at only 22 here but after watching that show I feel like an old bag now! Haha.


  71. I just watched my big fat Gypsy wedding this evening and all I kept thinking about was how many poor old people were fleeced in the making of that program to pay for that garish tripe. How a bunch of illiterate homeless shysters make the money for that junk is beyond me and I’d be sus because that had to be sooo much money to put put up for it… it was so over the top, couldnt believe that everyone kept a straight face whilst making the dress and getting the wedding together. It’s a bad 80s acid flashback


  72. I just started watching “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.” I’m 65yrs old and have 2 daughters. I only wish my girls were raised as strictly as these girls are raised. There is good and bad in every culture…I think the dresses are beautiful (a little over the top because they cannot walk down the aisle)…I saw one venue at an animal rescue center that if I was a Traveler Bride…I would go nuts over it…it was beautiful…
    I think the elder Travelers could invest in a place for wedding venues….that way they wouldn’t be having their venue cancelled which is awful…The dressmaker does a beautiful job and the cakes are fantastic…
    I hope, though, that the girls get more education…not to get away from the culture, but to learn about the world. I am married to the same man for 45 yr…I like learning about the world…and it has taught me many things …such as about the Travelers and Gypsies…they would learn about other cultures and that’s a good thing…Good Wishes to all Travelers and the brides to come…


  73. My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding started in the US this summer. I thought this was a joke, like Punk’d.

    For all the supposed “traveller” girls on here griping because people aren’t loving the style of your weddings, get over it. These people agreed to be filmed and have their lives aired on national and now INTERNATIONAL tv!!! Once you appear on tv, you are fair game and subject to ridicule, We, us YANKS, have the right to free speech, even if you don’t agree with what we have to say. Trust me, there is no JEALOUSY about these weddings. Why in the hell would someone model their wedding after their idol KATIE PRICE? That would be like me wanting to recreate Pam Anderson and Kid Rock’s wedding. PS..that’s probably the TACKIEST WEDDING EVER

    If you girls love this style and that’s what you want, fine. Just realize not everyone is going to like it, whether they are a traveller or not. Honestly, i think the wedding party outfits look like drag queens on crack! It appears you spend a great deal of money on the dresses, but the reception is a little low-rent, then you go live in a trailer to be a housewife right? That is the impression we are getting from the TV SHOW. Why do you quit school so early? Don’t you think it would be a good thing to know how to read above a 4th grade level. Maybe improve your reputations by getting an education, Quitting school in 5th grade would not be allowed over here.

    Remember, if you can’t love yourself, how do you expect somene else to love you. In the same note, learn to make fun of yourselves instead of getting all worked up over a BLOG! I make fun of myself and the REDNECKS that are prominent in the part of the US I live in. Learn to take a joke. Maybe you would’ve gotten a sense of humor if you’d stayed in school longer. I like to be an equal opportunity offender and make fun of everyone who dares to put themselves on public display, such as being on a TV SHOW!


  74. you all judge us so quickly, so what if some of the traveller gels on here cant spell, what does it matter if they wanted to quit school, if they want to stay at home to look after their man/ family/ kids then what problem of yours is it? im a traveller and guess what, i finished school, i got my results yesterday; three a*, one a, four b’s and a c so lets leave education out of this, plenty of gorgas come away with nothing and skip lessons aswell you know.

    the first wedding on here looks beautiful, im getting married soon and the top of my dress is similar to that, so what if you gorgas dont like it, its our weddings, not yours. before you’s all throw insults at me ill say waht im doing and why
    1- i AM getting married at seventeen, because ive been with my fionce since i was ten, i love him and he will be a great provider for me and my children,plus my mammy and daddy like him.
    2- i WILL have a big dress, carriage and fairytale cake, its my only day, its the day i become a woman and leave my daddy for my husband, we only do this once unlike many settled girls so we make a big show of being a princess for a day.
    3-my daddy WILL pay for the wedding, why shouldnt he? hes worked for me and me sisters all his life and this is like a final present before our husband becomes responsable for us, im his eldest daughter and his little princess so why shouldnt i have my dream day?
    4-i WONT get a job after marriage, why should i? ill clean the trailer, care for my husband and eventually our children, thats what i want to do, thats what ive been brought up to do. if i wanted i could go to collage or get a job but if we can live on my husbands wage alone then i dont need to, most of you gorgas wouldnt work unless you had to, you’d rater spend time with your children and husbands right? well we can afford to do that, stop being jelous.

    the girls all look beautifull and jelous little skanks need to stop being so nasty just cause youve got kids without the ring. our men respect us and do things propperly, your men will have sex with anyody and have loads of kids all over the shop.
    when i get married im going to post a link to my pictures on here and you gorgas can say what you want, at least we can wear white on our big day cause were pure and you aint, hahahahaha.


    • The reason why I don’t think it’s wise to quit school so early is because you become totally dependent on others for income and support. What happens if your husband ends up being a drunk? What is he beats you? What if he cheats on you? Or you going to stay with him because you have no other options in life? Or hope your parents will take you back? If you quit school without knowing ENGLISH or MATH, do you really think you can get a job other than flipping burgers if your husband leaves you for another woman? Trust me, some of the redneck culture here does the same thing (quitting school in 9th grade to get married to some dude and live in a trailer) and I’m not impressed by them either. Your reasoning on not going to college or having a career is flawed if your life doesn’t end up as you want it to. It’s always good to have a back-up plan. What if your husband dies in a car wreck unexpectedly? Or gets some horrible disease and dies very young? What are you going to do then? How would you support your family then?

      I waited to get married at 23. I graduated college, and after I had my son, I went on to get a Master’s degree. I have a successful career as an investment analyst. Just proving a point that you can have a family and a career and education. I find it unfortunate that many of the girls in the gypsy life have to quit school to raise their siblings because their parents don’t seem to know when to quit having kids. If they can’t take care of the kids by themselves, then they need to go against the Church and use birth control. I chose to go to college and graduate school and have a career because I never want to be dependent on a man. Plus I enjoy having my own money, where no one can say shit if I want to buy a pair of Louboutins. BTW, I never got a C in any course, please tell me yours wasn’t in ENGLISH!

      My main point was that if they don’t want to endure any criticism, DO NOT GO ON A TV SHOW! Do not go on a blog bragging about how great the traveller and gypsy life is, and expect those of us who aren’t part of it not to be fans. I’m not jealous of these weddings at all. Honestly, I’m old enough to be your mother. So please heed my advice and think about taking at least some technical courses, have a plan in case things don’t turn out like you hope they do. I will let you know my mother did pass away very young from a horrible terminal illness, so shit like that does happen.


      • PS, if you really want the wedding everyone will be jealous of in the traveller and gypsy community, don’t follow their trends or just try to keep up with what your friends are doing,stir it up by starting your own trend and having your following a few simple tips.

        1. Don’t wear the hoop skirt. Those went out in the 80’s. You don’t need to look like you are going to a hoe down. Trust me, I was raised a good Southern girl, and hoop skirts are horrible. You can’t walk, sit, pee, ect. Just not necessary to have a nice dress.

        2. Balloons are tacky at receptions. Anything you could make out of balloons can be made out of flowers instead.

        3. Stay away from hot pink, lime green or any other neon colors.

        4. Hire a professional wedding planner.

        5. Hire a professional makeup artist and hair stylist, but make sure the person knows not to do you up in drag makeup and hair.

        6. Don’t model your wedding on Katie Price to Peter whatshisname? . How long did that last? Maybe use Kate Middleton as inspiration for your dress instead.

        7. If you want your reception to have a bit of class, do not have a buffet. Have menus. Go in to the place who is catering the event to create your menu. Let people ORDER. Have white glove service. Have plates cleared and brought to the table in sync.The only acceptable thing to have not served by wait staff would be dessert and wedding cake.

        8. Provide a nice party favor for the guest such as Godiva chocolate or something similar.

        9. Provide a cocktail service prior to guests entering the reception area with appetizers such as tapas and a raw bar. Go to a mixologist (master bartender) to help develop some signature cocktails for the event. One to represent bride,another to represent the groom, and a third one to represent the couple. Also, have a great non-alcoholic option for the kids (such as a virgin version of one of the bride and groom’s cocktails)

        10. Do NOT and I repeat..DO NOT wear a sheer bodice/corset like the girl is wearing in photos #5 & 6. Also, do not force your bridesmaids to wear dresses that a drag queen wouldn’t even wear. Sometimes less is more.

        I recommend looking at wedding planning sites like Preston Bailey and David Tutera

  75. I started watching my “Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” and was fascintated by the history, culture and way of life. I am 52. I married the 1st man I slept with, not in the right order but close(!) and was raised a Catholic girl of Irish decesent, but very American. My Dad just sent me a picture of my 1st Communion and I LOOKED like a little bride. The veil, which I didn’t remember was quite eaborate. I understand that this is THE day of your lives and am only sorry that I feel you don’t have much more to look forward to after your Wedding Day. But it is easy to see that most are happy and this is your way of life and the only way of life you know. I admire your convictions and family values….Here is to YOU!

    I agree that some posters are mean and rude. However, if you want to assert the argument that you and your fellow travelers are upstanding, moral people then you really shouldn’t resort to name-calling.

    In your community marrying young,becoming a housewife is the ideal. For my community, going to college and working hard to provide for myself and my husband was paramount. No, I would never want to live your life, anymore than you would like to live my life. “Let bygones, be bygones.”


  77. THERES A LOT OF SICK JEALOUS WHORES ON THIS FAT WANNABES GET A LIFE!!


  78. why is my comments not comin up?????


  79. and having your friends be jealous of you* is what that is supposed to read..LOL


  80. BUT thanks to that show, I am shown a completely different side of their lives. They may look like prostitots in their dresses but their morals and ethics are so high it makes most North American girls seem like common whores. I know that I would not be able to live a life of a gypsy girl. Obviously it is completely normal for them to live their lives the way that they do but it is still a hard life! (from an outsiders perspective).


  81. These dresses and weddings must cost thousands

    Myself, I would rather put the money to better use…like perhaps an education?

    The spelling in the travellers comments are a dead giveaway…its really very sad as denying a child an education is the worst kind abuse and neglect
