Jessa Duggar Seewald has insulted bride-to-be Amy Duggar by turning attention to herself on this weekend of her cousin’s wedding to Dillon King. Amy Duggar’s wedding was held on Sunday, September 6. With all of the recent talk about ethics and morality surrounding the Duggar family, Jessa Duggar has done the unthinkable by trying to upstage Amy Duggar’s wedding.
Already under an avalanche of criticism from her recent appearance at the Southern Women’s Show in North Carolina on August 29, Jessa has taken to the internet to seek attention for herself. On Wednesday, she posted a video from her November 1, 2014, wedding on YouTube. The video is her complete, 40-minute wedding ceremony.
Yesterday, she posted yet another pregnancy selfie. This picture was taken in a small bathroom, and boasts an irregular pregnancy milestone of “31 weeks and 4 days.”
But that’s not all. Yesterday she posted a picture of herself and husband Ben Seewald on their wedding day on Facebook. The photo came with an untimely message from Jessa.
“We’re about to post our entire wedding photo album with never-before-seen pictures of our special day!”
All of this activity from Jessa Duggar comes with not one mention of her cousin Amy Duggar’s wedding scheduled on Sunday. But that’s not all. Amy Duggar’s wedding photos from the September 6 nuptials show wedding guest Jessa arriving in casual attire for her cousin’s big event.
Amy Duggar, 28, is the only child of Duggar family patriarch’s only sibling, Deanna Duggar Jordan. Amy has been part of Jessa’s life since the day she was born. Raised in the same city, Amy was seen on multiple episodes of the Duggar family reality series 19 Kids and Counting. Amy has been with the Duggar family for every birthday, every wedding, every life celebration and has always been there to extend a helping hand when needed.
It’s difficult to imagine why Jessa would not even acknowledge her cousin’s wedding, let alone why she would want to defer attention to herself on this one weekend which represents a milestone in Amy Duggar’s life.
Such behavior violates every wedding etiquette norm, according to experts.
“Trying to upstage the bride is something you will not be forgiven for and you will be spoken of for all the wrong reasons.”
Amy Duggar is probably too busy to notice all of this now, but she will eventually. At least Jessa didn’t show up at Amy’s wedding wearing a white dress, which is exactly what her mother Michelle Duggar did on Amy’s special day. This seems to be one more episode in a season of scandals involving the Duggar family, Josh Duggar, Jill Duggar Dillard, and Amy Duggar.
