On the September 23 episode of TLC reality series 19 Kids & Counting, Jill Duggar ticked off another important step toward her wedding to fiancé Derick Dillard. The 23-year-old daughter of Jim and Michelle Duggar was shown trying on her wedding dress, a milestone in the lives of the Duggar family.
In the episode, Duggar enlisted the help of her mother Michelle and all her female siblings to pick the right gown for her wedding to 25-year-old Dillard. As Duggar modeled each dress, everyone seemed to express approval, but it was the second gown she wore that made everyone who saw her speechless. Duggar choosing the right dress for her ceremony signaled that the date for her wedding being portrayed on the show was near, and viewers can expect to see what actually happened on that happy day on TV soon.
Before Duggar tried on dresses, her family paid tribute to her by tasking each member to write her a note about the changes in her future and theirs. Duggar seemed truly touched by the letters from her family, which showed how her little sisters were excited for her as well.
Another member of the family is also tying the knot soon. Duggar’s little sister Jessa, 21, is engaged to her boyfriend Ben Seewald, 19. The couple’s marriage plans are reportedly set as well.
Jessa recently told People that she had already chosen her dress. “I put it on, looked in the mirror, and it hit me. I'm going to be a bride,” she said.
Her parents have reportedly been helping the couple with wedding plans and are excited for the changes coming to their family again soon. “We are enjoying spending the time with Jessa and Ben now,” said her mother.
