Amy Duggar is a married woman, and she rocked a gown that would definitely have her cousins saying, “Nike!”
According to People, Amy Duggar and Dillon King tied the knot today at Horton Farms near Bentonville, Arkansas. The couple invited around 400 guests, and most of Amy’s fellow 19 Kids and Counting stars attended the ceremony, including Anna Duggar. Anna’s marriage is currently experiencing a great deal of turbulence — Josh Duggar recently admitted to cheating on his wife, and he couldn’t attend his cousin’s wedding because he’s currently in rehab.
Many Duggar fans probably worried that it would be hard for Anna Duggar to watch another woman being happy and in love on her wedding day after all that she’s been through, and it’s possible that Amy’s wedding did bring back painful memories of what Anna was expecting from marriage when she and Josh tied the knot. However, she powered her way through the event, and Amy Duggar seemed happy that she decided to attend the ceremony.
“She’s been through so much,” Amy said.
Anna and Josh Duggar’s five-year-old daughter, Mackynzie, got to be one of Amy Duggar’s flower girls, and she was joined by her adorable aunts, nine-year-old Johannah, eight-year-old Jennifer, six-year-old Jordyn, and five-year-old Josie. Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are currently doing long-term mission work in Central America, but they made a special trip home to attend the wedding.
Amy Duggar’s wedding dress was a simple but elegant ballroom gown designed by Essence of Australia. It featured a strapless sweetheart neckline and showed off a ton of cleavage, so hopefully Amy’s extremely conservative aunt, uncle, and cousins weren’t too scandalized.https://instagram.com/p/7TxM2ZxFxc/?taken-by=peoplemag
According to Cosmopolitan, the book Growing Up Duggar reveals that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar don’t want their male children seeing cleavage or collar bones. In fact, the female members of the family have a special code word that they use whenever a woman is showing too much skin. That code word is “Nike,” and it’s a signal that the menfolk need to stare down at their shoes until the offending woman is no longer in sight.
“It’s meant to help keep the guys’ eyes from seeing things they shouldn’t be seeing. By using the single-word signal, the warning can be given quietly and discreetly.”
As you can see, Amy’s look is already getting a little hate on social media.
It’s possible that former brides Jessa Duggar, Jill Duggar, Michelle Duggar, and Anna Duggar didn’t agree with Amy’s decision to show off her bare shoulders to all of her wedding guests — they probably think that Amy’s round mounds of flesh and bone should only be seen by her husband, Dillon King.
“We realize that our body is a special gift from God and that He intends for it to be shared only with our future husband… We avoid low-cut, cleavage-showing, gaping, or bare-shouldered tops; and when needed, we wear an undershirt,” the Duggar gals wrote in their book.
Amy Duggar’s wedding included a few other details that her aunt and uncle likely disapproved of, including alcohol and dancing at the wedding reception. As the Inquisitr previously reported, the Duggars are against dancing and secular music “with a beat” because it makes men think naughty thoughts.
Do you think Amy Duggar’s extended family members were uncomfortable with her wedding choices?
