Less than a month after Joy-Anna tied the knot, talk of Joseph Duggar’s approaching wedding is growing louder. Adding to the chatter is Duggar matriarch Michelle’s recent Kentucky visit for a bridal show.
Joy-Anna Duggar married Austin Forsyth in Arkansas on May 26 in an evening ceremony. The Duggar family did not reveal the wedding date until the big day, though some fans learned about it before the ceremony. Joy-Anna’s wedding was featured in the first episode of Counting On this season. It is likely that Joseph Duggar’s wedding date will remain under wraps until after he walks down the aisle with Kendra Caldwell. But given that Duggar engagements are quickly followed by weddings in less than half a year, Joseph’s wedding is likely to take place before the end of the year.
The 22-year-old popped the question to Kendra at sister Joy’s wedding and, according to People, has said in the recent past that fall is a good time to wed. In this context, Michelle Duggar’s recent attendance at a bridal show in Kentucky, organized by Joy-Anna and Jinger Duggar’s wedding dress designer, raises questions about preparations for Joe’s wedding. Is mama Duggar exploring wedding dress ideas for her future daughter-in-law, who in a recent image inadvertently revealed more skin than what Duggars consider norm?
Bridal designer Renne Miller designed Joy-Anna’s wedding dress by putting together elements of three other gowns. Joy reportedly liked different things about multiple dresses. Miller revealed it was a crunch situation for her as Joy saw the dress only days before the wedding, more than a month after visiting her Kentucky store for a fitting.
“Watch with me tomorrow night as I show Joy-Anna Duggar her wedding gown for the first time after she left my store in Mt Sterling. To complete her gown, I merged 3 gowns into one. The big reveal was just 3 days before her wedding. Yes, I was a nervous wreck,” the designer said in a Facebook post before the start of Counting On Season 3.
The “Bridal Experience” show was held last week in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky. Miller’s Kentucky store is a recent addition to her business and gained popularity among Duggar fans after Jinger Duggar’s wedding. Miller was featured in the last season of TLC’s Counting On before being seen at Joy’s wedding.
At her bridal show, a host of designs were shown off, which may have given Michelle ideas about bridal wear that could suit her soon-to-be daughter-in-law. Though the choice will be Kendra’s call, it is unlikely to be done without Michelle Duggar’s assistance and the presence of Counting On camera crew. Joseph’s wedding is expected to be featured on the next season of the show.
