Though 19 Kids & Counting viewers have yet to see Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald get engaged on the show, the two are deep in the planning of their wedding. Jessa and Ben are getting married on November 1, and they are opening up with some details about what they are planning for the big day. Will it be a huge affair like what Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard had with their June wedding? It sounds like it will.
Jessa and Ben are following the same conservative approach in their courtship and engagement that 19 Kids & Counting fans saw with Jill and Derrick. Duggar, 21, and Seewald, 19, will share their first kiss after they are pronounced husband and wife. Though the two just got engaged in August, they are swiftly getting the pieces into place to move on to becoming a married couple.
The 19 Kids & Counting couple tells People that they are very excited, and everybody has pulled together to get the wedding planning done. Of course, it surely helps that they just went through a lot of this for Jill and Derick’s June 21 wedding. Jessa has a wedding gown picked out, invitations have been sent, and the wedding party is in place.
It seems that it all really caught up to Jessa when she found that perfect wedding gown. She says she put it on, and as she looked in the mirror, it hit her that she’s about to be a bride. Of course, when it comes to the Duggar family, people start wondering about babies before the wedding vows have even finished. Will Jessa and Ben work on getting pregnant right away like Jill and Derick did?
As Radar Online shares, Duggar and Seewald say they are open to having children, and they do look forward to starting their own family. They add that they are very interested in adoption, something many 19 Kids & Counting viewers would love to see come into the mix of things on the show.
The current season of 19 Kids & Counting is focused on Jill and Derick’s wedding, though there has been plenty of time devoted to Jessa and Ben’s courtship as well. The Dillard wedding is slated to air at the end of the current season, so fans are hopeful the show will return before too long with new episodes that will show Jill and Derick’s pregnancy as well as Jessa and Ben’s wedding.
It looks like all of the pieces are essentially in place, and now it’s just a matter of weeks before Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald get married. Tune in to 19 Kids & Counting Tuesday nights on TLC to see the courtship play out, and watch the build-up to Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard’s wedding.
