Plot Synopsis

This reality series goes inside the hidden world of American Gypsies, exploring their tight-knit community and revealing their infamous Swarovski Crystal-studded weddings. There are an estimated one million Gypsies throughout the US, but most live in complete secrecy, away from the judgment and discrimination that plague their communities. However, their celebrations are large, loud, and lavish, and Boston-based Sondra Celli makes their elaborate custom gowns and outfits for weddings, birthdays, baptisms and other milestones. This series returned for its second season on Sunday, March 24, 2013 at 9pm ET on TLC, immediately following a one-hour special, MY BIG FAT GYPSY VALENTINE. Immediately following a six-hour marathon (3-8pm ET/PT) of encore episodes of MY BIG FAT AMERICAN GYPSY WEDDING, TLC aired a one-hour special, "Most Blingtastic Moments," at 8pm ET/PT and then the Season 3 premiere at 9pm ET/PT on Thursday, April 3, 2014. In the season opener, two star-crossed teen lovers from feuding gypsy families are determined to marry, despite the fact that their controlling moms try to keep them apart. Plus, a young gypsy boy attempts to make Romanichal history by becoming the first gypsy jujitsu champion.
