Jessa Duggar Has Already Planned Her Entire Wedding


The Duggars know how to plan a wedding — quick. Just look at their second-oldest daughter, Jill, who married in a matter of two months and is now expected a baby. Next up is Jessa, who got engaged to Ben Seewald two months following her sister Jill's wedding, and has hit the ground running with wedding planning. So much so, that she has her date set (November 1!), they've sent out invites, the bridesmaid dresses are selected.

"I am super excited," Jessa told People. "Everybody has really been pitching in."

The most important to-do checked off of Jessa's list? She found her dream wedding dress. "I put it on, looked in the mirror, and it hit me," Jessa said. "I'm going to be a bride."

Even dad Jim Bob has been pitching in. "I tell you it is very busy," Jim Bob said to People. "Jessa is working on all these details that she and Ben are planning. I really don't have a vision of how to put a wedding together, it is just an endless amount of details and choices. It is overwhelming. But, we are excited for Ben and Jessa and how the Lord has worked in their lives."

And mom Michelle can't help but get a bit emotional (albeit very excited) about all of the changes in her family recently. "We are enjoying spending the time with Jessa and Ben now," Michelle said. "She'll be doing her own thing and having her own family before long. I realize that all our lives are going to change when she gets married, and I tell her younger siblings that it will be fun in a new way."

In case you were wondering: Like Jill, Jessa also plans to share her first kiss with Ben once they're officially declared husband and wife.
