Heavy duty wedding planning is on the agenda for Jinger Duggar these days. She will be marrying former soccer player, and now realty TV star Jeremy Vuolo very soon. They admitted in a recent episode of TLC’s Counting On that their relationship has been on the fast track and they sure weren’t kidding. The engaged couple are both busy getting ready for their big day.
Along with the obvious duties of planning a wedding, Jinger and Jeremy have been getting some marriage counseling before they get hitched. According to Jeremy’s Facebook page, they have been meeting with his dad, Charles Vuolo, as he is giving them a bit of fatherly advice on having a successful marriage. Jeremy’s parents have a good and loving relationship themselves and it looks like he is sharing what he has learned over the years.
In addition to the elder Vuolo, the photo that was posted on Facebook shows that Jim Bob Duggar was also in the mix, most likely sharing his own advice. Both sets of parents have been happily married for many years, so the soon-to-be husband and wife are ready with open ears to hear what they have to say.
The premarital counseling took place in Texas where Jeremy lives. From the looks of it, Jinger and Jim Bob were the only members of the family that traveled from Arkansas to Laredo to visit with Jeremy. They even missed a Duggar birthday when they were gone. October 11 was Johannah’s special day and Jim Bob, Jinger, and Jeremy sent their love and birthday wishes via video standing in front of a Texas Chick-fil-A. The couple even spent some time sight-seeing with their dads in San Antonio.
As seen in this season of Counting On, Jeremy respects Jim Bob’s way of thinking, but he is also doing things a bit different than the other two sons-in-law when they were courting his daughters. He and his fiance are doing things their own way, but also respecting some of the Duggar family rules. This couple has chosen to be a bit more daring when it comes to showing their affection for each other. However, they still have chosen to go with the chaperone deal that the reality family is so famous for.
The bride-to-be has had a lot of help from her sisters, so the wedding planning is probably coming along just fine. Jinger Duggar doesn’t look like she is nervous at all about the hoopla of a wedding. She and her guy are more than ready to become husband and wife. No date has been announced, so Duggar fans have no idea how soon this will all happen, but you can bet that they have planned it before Jill and Derick have to head back to Central America to their second home.
Where will the wedding ceremony take place? That is also a secret, but Jinger sure is spending a lot of time traveling to Texas for some extra planning, so maybe they had decided to have it there. New York City is also another spot that they could have chosen since that is where the proposal happened. As International Business Times had recently posted, the proposal was shown on this week’s episode of Counting On and it was certainly a surprise for Jinger. It all went off a hitch, rainbow and all.
The Duggar daughter is obviously in love with her man. She is about to not only become a wedded woman, but she is also stepping into the role of a pastor’s wife. She doesn’t seem to be too worried about it. She will be welcomed with open arms in the small church. She is definitely loved by Jeremy’s family already. The TLC reality show revealed Jinger meeting his grandparents for the first time and learning some cooking tips from Grandma Vuolo. She has excitedly given this couple her own stamp of approval and looking forward to having the 22-year-old reality star as part of the Vuolo family.
However, Jim Bob may be a bit more reluctant. He had previously expressed his concern about his daughter moving too fast in this relationship, but it is still moving full steam ahead it seems. Jinger and Jeremy have been including him in their wedding planning, as well as the rest of family.
Are you surprised by how quickly Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo are getting married?
