  1. I'm so happy for them. Hopefully, Mackynzie will enjoy being a flower girl more this time. I remember that she was all upset at Priscilla & David's wedding.

  9. What is your guess peach, yellow, rose, mauve or what other color for the bridesmaids dresses?
    I will say mauve because of the idea that is for royalty and Jill is a princess, a daughter of the King of Kings!

  10. Does Josh have a role in the wedding?

  14. Jill limits her attendants to family but Derick invites his friends. I was surprised there was not a Bates girl.

  15. Cute. Can't wait to see it! :) :) :) :) Johannah is a bridesmaid? That's neat.

    ReplyDelete
  16. That's a pretty good sized wedding party. I had the feeling that Jana would be Maid-of-Honor, and that Derick's brother would be Best Man.

    I am curious as to why Josh isn't in the wedding. Maybe he's staying out to help with the younger children and Marcus? We'll find out soon enough.

    Cannot wait until tomorrow. It will be such a glorious day!!!

  17. I am so excited for you guys! It's always refreshing to see such young love and doing things the right way, not like now in days couples move in first, have children, then think about marriage last. It's bc of y'alls family that I am encouraged to do things right and to trust in The Lord always.

  46. I find it telling that he is having friends stand up while she is only having family. I wish their world was not so secluded. Why are they having such big church weddings when they are home churched.

    1. It's not so telling if there was any common sense involved ,think about it.She is close to her large family
      AND her sisters.Wait and see how many friends shows up for the wedding, she got loads! Seriously,no need to nit pick at all on this wonderful, highly anticipated time for this family.Lets send nothing but good vibes and love from us fans and non fans alike.Godspeed everyone.:-):-):-)

  47. I'm sure if Derrick had lots of brothers they'd be standing with him and if Jill had a small family she'd have her friends stand with her. Of course she'd put her sisters in the wedding before friends. :-)

  48. Congratulations to Jill and Derick!!! I hope everything goes as planned. Can't wait to see pictures and hopefully an episode or two about the wedding.

  49. Emotions will be flowing through the Duggar house tonight. The last night all the girls will share a room together. But so exciting that two people who are meant to be together will have their dreams come true! God bless Derick and Jill.

  50. Congratulations. You make a beautiful couple!

  51. I would find it odd if she cut out a sister in order to stick a friend in her wedding party! Their choices are their own, and I wish them all the best.

  59. Why wouldn't they have a large wedding?I wouldn't think being 'home churched' would make a difference.I wished I knew what time the wedding is so I can be thinking of them at the right time.

  60. So happy for you both. May you have a blessed life together. Thank you Duggar family for sharing your life with us. Look forward to seeing photos of the big day! Congrats Jill & Derick!

    1. The Bates were involved with the wedding but in other ways. Erin played for their wedding as she did for Josh and Anna. There were just so many places to fill and family came first. The Duggars were not in the Bates wedding parties to my knowledge. Doesn't mean that they are not close friends. Just means they were needed in other ways to help.

  62. kms had you considered how difficult it would be for Jill to exclude even one of her sisters from the wedding party? I would make the same choice if I were in her shoes. I think it was the very best choice. It only makes sense tha t the groom would choose friends and relatives, he comes from a very small family. It makes perfect sense to be married in a church because their home church could not possibly accommodate all of the guests. I really don't think the family is as secluded as you might think. I agree that their choices are telling, but I guess they are telling us differnet things lol

    ReplyDelete
  63. She's probably just having family because her family is a tad bigger than Derick's.

    Derick probably doesn't have Josh because he doesn't know him as well as the others seeing as how he's in DC.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Will there be a TLC special on the wedding?

    ReplyDelete
  65. Jill has so many friends that she likely has to stick to her family to be fair to her very many friends, THAT is TELLING IT LIKE IT IS! Jesus is Lord of all the church activities, I would say that is why they can have such a big church wedding! PRAISE THE LORD!

    ReplyDelete
  66. It's not hard to figure that out...Derick has ONE sibling, Jill has several sisters she loves! And they really are not secluded, if you watch the show, you see them out and about in their community all the time.......love them!

  67. Congratulations Jill & Derek. The love you share is an inspiration to us all. God bless you both!

  70. I think Johanna is too little to be a bridesmaid she should be a junior bridesmaid.

  83. lily & ellie, thank you so much for writing this blog and keeping us all up-to-date on the duggars, etc.! so happy for you to be able to attend the wedding! can't wait to see your pictures.

    i dont know why everyone thinks it is unusual for jill to have all her sisters in the wedding party! they are all extremely close, always have been, and i wouldn't think she would have it any other way. on the other hand, derick does not have as large a family, so of course his friends would be his personal witnesses. it's very sweet of him to include john-david & joseph considering he hasnt 'known' them very long. shows he has a great sense of family and i commend him for that.

    anon-25, yes, madison is/was a male name long before it was ever used as a female name (ie leslie, lynn, ashley, evan, devon to name a few more recent ones). i think now it is considered one of the 'unisex' names......................dac

  84. That is wonderfull that Jill included all her sisters and that Johanna is the Bridesmaid :)

    ReplyDelete

    1. Agreed. Johanna was probably a regular bridesmaid due to the fact that Joy and Johanna were buddies of Jill. Wise choice!

      Delete
  85. I had all three of my sisters in my wedding. Plus five friends. But if I had eight sisters, then I would have just had my sisters and not friends. it makes perfect sense for her to include all of her sisters. And it's really not our business if she wants to call Johannah a bridesmaid or a flower girl. I can't wait to see the video of the wedding. So happy for them!

  86. Best wishes to Jill and Derick. I wish Jana meets someone today at the wedding. I cannot believe a young man has not asked to court her.
