’19 Kids and Counting:’ Jessa Duggar Wedding Plans UnderwayBy: Kimberly Ripley - August 30, 2014
The 19 Kids and Counting family is already planning for daughter Jessa Duggar’s wedding. Jessa and Ben Seewald just announced their engagement but the Duggar family planning for the happy couple’s big day is underway.
Sister Jill Duggar just tied the knot in June, and like her sister, Jessa Duggar is excited about that first kiss with her groom.
“We’re really looking forward to the first kiss!” she said during an interview with ABC News. “We’re talking about it — what if we miss or mess up? We’re gonna have to plan this out or something!”
The Christian Post reports that Ben Seewald recently moved into a guest cottage located on Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s property. This has fans thinking the wedding isn’t far off.
“The guest list is pretty big, but not as big as my sister’s,” Jessa Duggar shared with the media. “My list is a little smaller [than Jill’s was], but then Ben’s guest list is bigger than Derick’s. It will be another Duggar-sized wedding!”
It is expected that Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald will get married either some time this fall or winter. And like Jill Duggar’s wedding to Derick Dillard, they will rely on friends and family members to help make it an exciting day.
“We want to have a nice wedding that everyone will enjoy but at the same time, we’d like to push our budget more toward our honeymoon because that’s our time together,” Ben Seewald added. “That’s our first few weeks together.”
Sister Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have already announced that they are expecting a baby. Do you expect Jessa and Ben will soon follow suit?
In typical 19 Kids and Counting fashion, Jessa and Ben–just like Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard–courted rather than dated before becoming engaged and subsequently married. They engaged in hand holding and some hugs, but kisses are reserved for the wedding day.
One thing that Jessa’s wedding will have in common with sister Jill’s, in addition to the guest list and maybe even the decorations, is that TLC will film the special day for airing on a future episode of 19 Kids and Colunting. Ben also noted that the company will be filming part of the honeymoon, but added there will be plenty of private time for the newlyweds.
19 Kids and Counting starts a new season on TLC on September 2nd. Will you be tuning in?
