Jessa Duggar is on the fast track to marriage. The third daughter of 19 Kids and Counting parents Jim Bob and Michelle got engaged in mid-August to Ben Seewald and now, she has a wedding date.
The newly engaged couple told People that the ceremony is set for Nov. 1.
Ben told the entertainment magazine, “We have most of our planning done. When you’re planning a wedding, you can make it complicated or make it simple, and we are trying to make ours simple. There are some things that have to be done right before the wedding, but for the most part, we’re ready.”
The bride seems to be pretty calm. Not only are her bridesmaids set, she’s got her own dress ready, too.
Jessa explained, “I picked out my wedding dress a couple of days ago. I went with the second dress I tried on — I love it.”
Ben is currently living on the family’s property while he completes his sophomore year in college. The political science major studies while his fiancée plans the wedding next to him on her laptop.
Like her recently married sister Jill, Jessa is adhering to the family’s strict beliefs to wait until their wedding day for their first kiss. To make sure they are obeying the rules, the couple brings family members along on their dates.
Jessa shared, “We don’t have trouble finding chaperones. If we’re going out to a restaurant, we make sure they get a special dessert and have a fun time, too. We take good care of them.”
If you are keeping count of Duggar family milestones in 2014, that will be two weddings and one pregnancy — only 16 more weddings to go.
