Us Rating: **1/2

A yuletide edition of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding highlights extravagant Christmastime nuptials and other ceremonies in the U.K. and Ireland's Gypsy communities. (One bride dons a 200-pound gown!) Unfortunately, the special is loaded with too many stories -- like two teen brides with float-like dresses, and a girl who gets spray-glittered for her First Communion -- so it's hard to get a feel for the colorful subjects.
