From shimmering dresses to explosive wedding outbursts, TLC’s buzz worthy series MY BIG FAT AMERICAN GYPSY WEDDING comes back with a bang! With coming of age parties, arranged marriages, purification ceremonies and a Veil of Darkness wedding ritual, the Gypsies have their own set of customs and superstitions, vital to the survival of their mysterious culture. This season Gypsy dress designer Sondra Celli creates the most unique dresses to date, including a dress made entirely out of flowers, a dress made out of candy and a Cherokee-themed dress. The series’ fifth season premieres Sunday, July 17 at 10/9c.
In the premiere episode, Maquayla, an 18 year-old Romanichal Gypsy with a zest for life, dreams of walking down the aisle in her dream wedding dress: a gown made out of real flowers! But will the dress stay alive for the ceremony? Meanwhile, 16 year-old Gypsy Yazzie wants the perfect candy-themed Sweet 16 birthday party, but it may be all-out war if she invites her gorger (non-Gypsy) boyfriend. Will her Sweet 16 turn sour, or will it take a turn for the sweetest Sweet 16 ever?
