Favorite

MY BIG FAT AMERICAN GYPSY WEDDING is a TV show designed to familiarize watchers to American Romanic Hal Gypsy & Traveler societies. Cameras follow handpicked Gypsy folks as they plot to elaborate marriages, communions, birthday parties, and baptisms designed to excite. Designing and making the immoderate dresses for these actions is Boston designer Sondra Celli. It displays how scheduling and relishing these extravagant parties form part of their own and traditional ancient behaviors. Watchers also get to view how these societies are still attached to their manner of life regardless of the influences of American normal culture. However while they merge into an American moderate manner of life, they must deal with the continuous stigmas that frame their societies, and cope with the pressures created when the guidelines governing their societies conflict with native, state, & federal rules.

My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding gives a prurient look into the life style of American Roma & Traveler societies, whose ancestors were dispatched from Europe part to American southern farms as slaves or who reached Stateside for the period of the immigration waves. However unlike their European equivalents, many of the families included on the show, have taken to stick to their customs while mixing into a normal middle-class way of life. While greatest part of the show's concentrates is on how wildly wasteful their fashions are and how uninhabited their behavior can turn out to be during celebrations, it also underscores many of the cultural practices that sets them apart from other American ethnic societies, which range from enormously patriarchal habits of thinking about females to dealing with the numerous stereotypes used to describe them. Viewers may discovery their lifestyle out of touch or else extreme, however they may also be astonished by how they can hold on to these beliefs within typical American culture.
