Exclusive Clip: How 'Gypsy' Does Wedding Transport
By ETonline Staff
The holiday season calls for a festive wedding for the gypsy community in the UK, which as we see in ETonline's exclusive sneak peek, includes a very unorthodox arrival for the bride.
On the TLC special A Very Merry Gypsy Christmas, a spin-off of the reality series My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, a gypsy couple is getting married, and if we've learned anything from the previous wedding ceremonies we've seen on Gypsy Wedding, we've come to expect an unconventional celebration.
The gypsies' unique festivities begin right away with the bride, Barbara's, arrival to the wedding. Instead of being chauffeured in a limo or a luxury car, the bride hops onto the back of a pickup truck with her father and rides on a sofa on the way to her nuptials.
As Barbara and her father bounce around in the back of a pickup en route to the church, her massive 70-pound cake, which she requested be the size of a car, is unloaded into the reception area.
