The Duggars gathered their huge brood together on Sunday to attend cousin Amy Duggar’s wedding to Dillon King. Jill Duggar Dillard and her family even flew home from Central America, where they are serving as missionaries, to join in celebrating Amy’s big day. Jessa Duggar Seewald--who is boasting a rather sizable baby bump these days-- and her hubby Ben were there, too. Josh Duggar didn't attend, as he is in a Christian rehab facility receiving therapy for sexual sins. His wife Anna Duggar attended, however, along with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.

It was only a couple of songs into the reception, however, before the Duggars wished Amy and Dillon well and took their leave. According to People magazine, the Duggars left before the reception went from “classy to trashy real quick.”

Amy Duggar says the former 19 Kids and Counting Duggars left shortly after the music at their wedding reception began, and the real partying kicked in.

“They left right when the music was starting,” Amy Duggar--who now goes by the last name of King--said. “They stayed for two songs or so. It was country so they probably dealt with it.”

Once the Duggars left, the "trashy" part of the reception started.

“The lights went down, the disco lights came up. Everybody kicked off their shoes,” Amy said. “It went from classy to trashy real quick, which was the best!”

“We broke out the bar as soon as my family left. The champagne was chilled, we had whiskey, mixed drinks, everything. It was so fun,” she added.

The Duggars must have caused all eyes to turn in their direction when the lot of them--at least 25 people--left the reception hall at the same time.

Do you suppose Amy Duggar, Dillon King, and their wedding guests had a much better time after the Duggars left?
