Regardless, the pair — decked out in orange and brown camo formalwear — did throw a huge party on Sunday — and the whole thing was filmed for the upcoming season of TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

"The day was very special mostly because my girls were able to take part in it," June told People of the weekend's festivities. "I felt like it was important for them to see this moment and celebrate my love for Sugar Bear."

The whole event was a family affair — and the Coupon Queen made sure the whole thing happened on a shoestring budget.
