Big Fat Gypsy Weddings is one of Britain’s highest-rated documentary series ever. According to IMDB.com, “The filmmakers use the Gypsy’s extravagant wedding celebrations to reveal a group of people who live alongside but free from mainstream society, guided by century-old religious and cultural traditions. But, interestingly enough, those tenants are not so rigid as to completely exclude modern pop-culture and fashion influences from taking effect.”

The extravagant wedding dresses you’re about to see make these gypsy brides feel like princesses and Barbie dolls. As the different dresses walk on and off the set, the hosts says, “It’s like bumper cars going past!” And it really is — the sheer size of these dresses makes it nearly impossible to see the brides themselves!

First up is a jaw-dropping organza twist dress. Weighing a whopping 170 pounds, the dress took 300 hours to make; each gemstone is individually placed onto the bodice by hand.

And just wait until you see the next dress to appear on the stage — a bright pink cotton candy creation that’s even more elaborate than the last.
