Gypsies were nomadic ethnic
groups that settled mainly across
Europe, Turkey and North Africa.
Although many scholars argue
about their origin, it has been
widely believed that Gypsies (or
Romani) originated in Northern
India about 1,000 years ago.
Their lifestyle of travelling from
place to place, their love of colour
and free-spirited nature have
inspired couples to have gypsy-
themed weddings, especially since
2011. Two of the reasons for this
were: the launch of the popular
British TV series My Big Fat Gypsy
Wedding and the celebrity wedding
of model Kate Moss which was
infused with a great deal of gypsy
Here are some ways you can
incorporate a gypsy "feel" to your
Gypsies favoured Bohemian-
styled long dresses with full skirts.
Their gowns often incorporated
lace. Scarves were worn on the
head in place of veils. You can
replicate this by having an off-
the-shoulder styled gown made
of vintage lace. Gypsy women also
tended to wear jewelry in the hair,
head bands, coin collar necklaces,
chandelier earrings, copious
amounts of bangles and metals
with an antique look, eg, tarnished
silver or gold. Many Gypsies also
braided their hair, so perhaps a
well for this
Many Gypsies became well-
known for tarot card readings and
fortune-telling. They were also
renowned musicians and enter-
tainers, particularly on the accor-
dion, tambourine and the fiddle.
To create an authentic gypsy vibe
at your wedding, try to get some
of this type of music or better yet,
live musicians or fortune tellers.
Traditionally, Gypsies moved
around via caravans pulled by
horses. Although a caravan will be
hard to find, perhaps try staging
some of your wedding photos on
horseback or amongst horses.
Many Gypsies were skilled at
metal work and basketry. To bring
extra authenticity, you can perhaps
incorporate these items into your
centrepiece or give them as favours.
Gypsies also favoured lanterns and
bright colours such as turquoise, emer-
ald green, pink, red and gold.
The gypsy lifestyle centred around
the outdoors and they were also known
for erecting tents out of mismatched
fabrics and patterns. Therefore, if you re
having a gypsy wedding, the ideal venue
would be somewhere outdoors, perhaps
at a stable or large open air area that
can be tented.
