See the Huge Dress That Made 'Big Fat Gypsy Wedding' History


On the season four premiere of "My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding," dress designer extraordinaire Sondra Celli made history by creating the biggest, fattest wedding dress the show has ever seen.

"We have been asked to make a dress that is gonna break the 100-pound barrier. This is, like, a major construction job," said Sondra Celli on "My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding."

Twenty-five-year-old Greek gypsy Tatiana called Sondra just after getting engaged, and she requested the "biggest, blingiest dress" Sondra could possibly make.

And with the help of her entire staff and over three weeks of hard work, Sondra was able to deliver.

Tatiana was thrilled with what Sondra and her team were able to put together.

The massive gown ended up weighing about 110 pounds and was made up of 500 feet of tubing, 400 yards of fabric and at least 50,000 rhinestones.

Sondra told the Boston Herald the dress took a lot of blood, sweat and tears. But mostly sweat. "It fills up my office. And it is so heavy, I had [Tatiana] practicing with weights so she would be able to hold it up."

But, of course, a gown that big comes with equally big problems, and she had a lot of troubleshooting to do before the big day.

First, they couldn't even get the behemoth of a dress out of Sondra's workshop. So she fixed the hoop so it could expand and contract - problem solved.

That is, until they tried to fit her into a car. That was obviously a no-go. So Sondra had to do something big to make sure Tatiana and her giant dress could make it to her wedding ...

And that something was a 53-foot flatbed semi truck with a police motorcade. You heard right, a semi truck was the only vehicle big enough to haul that bad boy to Tatiana's wedding venue.

We were pretty floored by the monstrous gown. But fans of the show on Twitter were loving it, with many commenting on how gorgeous Tatiana looked when she finally made it to the ceremony.

Well, we're just glad Tatiana got her "Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding" wish. And we're sure Sondra is just glad it's all over.
