This has nothing to do with this post,but I just went to the " 19 weddings and counting" you ladies posted in Janurary. I was looking there because as everyone knows Jill is getting married in 4 days. I found this very funny but out of all 123 comments only about 15 viewers said Jill would be married in in a few years! Lots of people said she would be courting or focusing on her midwifing school or career! By the way thank you so much Lily and Ellie for putting up this AMAZING blog! It is the only Duggar Family blog I trust! So I get all this Duggar Family information from here!

My husband has several guitars and there is not one that he would allow to rained on. No one put a umbrella over him to protect him or the guitar, he must have really wanted this gig.

I would love to be a fly on the wall at their wedding. They are such a darling couple and a wonderful role model for young people.

I absolutely adore Derick. My prayer for this couple is that Jim Bob will allow Derick to be the head of his own household and that Jim Bob will not interfere with Derick's decisions.

I checked in because I thought - the whole Duggar and Dillard families must be so busy and excited in these final days before the wedding! God bless the couple and families! Hope they're able to relax and enjoy their day. It's a whirlwind and over so quickly!

The singer is getting rained on and his guitar is getting wet, while others have umbrellas and coffee, that does not seem nice at all and it is a sour point in this video.

Love Derick, Jill, and this whole family! Such a sweet family, and a precious proposal! Have to note, though, that I, too, was concerned about the guitar!!! :)

Really special and nice to see, I wish them all the best, luck and love in the world
I'm sure they're going to have a great wedding day and life together and can't wait to see it, hopefully somebody will put it on youtube because I'm from The Netherlands
(but I did felt sorry for the musicians that they were not protected from the rain and almost everybody else was)
take care!

That was a comedy, a romantic comedy. The irony is very funny. The conscientious future fiancé is outfitted with an umbrella and coffee, like his future sister in laws and mother in law. Everyone commenting on how they are rehearsing to make the engagement date flawless. Meanwhile the musicians just show up in their regular clothes and so they and the instrument are getting drenched by the rain and their are some odd looks flashing from their faces amidst their congeniality. This could become a classic. Is it under a copy write?

I do not think Derick was home schooled.

Rain will not stop Derick's parade! Pray for sunshine June 21, 2004 in Springdale, Arkansas! May God Bless with a beautiful wedding day with the sun shining on - Derick and Jill !

Why did Michelle have to "give permission" for Derick to touch Jill's shoulder? I thought the couple made their own rules? That's so not true isn't it? I thought that was ridiculous. A rehearsal? Over the top and so "not reality". Derick only needed to talk to the musicians and set it up with them; then tell Jana and Joy about it so they would "drop back" at the park.

Thanks for showing us how he went about planning the engagement. So sweet!

Curious, I went looking for 5 and 10 Stores online and found what I think is the location of this video. It is probably filmed near the Walmart visitors centre which is an old 5 and 10 Walton's store located at 105 N Main St, Bentonville, Arkansas. The park with the fountain is across the street.

Why is Michelle holding the multi-person umbrella all by herself under it, while the musicians are getting soaked? Doesn't the Lord say to share our blessings, and in this case, an umbrella was a blessing and Michelle had room to share it? I just find it ironic the pictures of the musicians sitting there looking like wet puppies, while Michelle stands alone under her multi-person umbrella. I would never do that.

Love this! And, oh, Jana is so gorgeous in this video!

If you were listening Michelle said that Jill and Derick asked their families to hold them accountable but in this special situation he wanted to be sure it was understood he would touch her shoulder. Michelle s answer was playful. Derick was nervous and if he wanted to run through s few practices I dont see any harm in it. I see many staged things in "reality" shows. But I think the duggars are the most real
