The One Tradition Jill and Derick Dillard Skipped on Their Wedding Day


When it comes to Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard's relationship, everything is about tradition. But, the one custom they strayed away from? Waiting to see the bride! Derick actually saw his bride, Jill, before she walked down their church's aisle in front of their 1,000 or so guests on their wedding day this past June.

Tonight, Jill and Derick's vow exchange and first kiss (yep, these two held out until "I do" to lock lips) will finally air on TLC — which means that everyone whose closely followed these parents-to-be's relationship will actually get to see their very big day come together! And, thankfully, we have a sneak peek at their adorable first look, above.

As Jill says in the clip, once she had her wedding dress on, she was so excited that she wanted to do the first look right away. Approaching her soon-to-be husband in a custom Allure Romance gown, Jill excitedly taps on Derick's shoulder once she was ready. As he turns around, Derick exclaims: "Babe, you look absolutely amazing. Wow. I've never seen you so gorgeous. I love you."

"Woah, wow," Derick continues. "I've never seen you so gorgeous. You look amazing."

Jill replies, holding onto her future husband, "I love you, you look so handsome."

The cuteness doesn't end with their incessant giggles and proclamations of "I love you" and hugs. Jill continues her praise off screen. "He looked amazing," Jill says in the preview. "As cute as ever."

They share a pretty sweet moment of disbelief, too. "I can't believe it, we're getting married! Like you're in your wedding dress, I'm in my suit, and you're in your dress — this is it!"

That it is! To watch the Dillards's sweet nuptials, tune into to TLC at 8 p.m. tonight!
