Amy Duggar almost didn’t plan a traditional wedding day. The bride-to-be said she originally wanted her nuptials with Dillon King to be in a courthouse. However, her uncle, “19 Kids and Counting” patriarch Jim Bob Duggar, and her mother Deanna Duggar weren’t about to let that happen.
“Uncle Jim Bob is more traditional than I am and he was just like, ‘Now, Amy, a wedding is all about family and friends and coming together,” Amy told Us Weekly. “I’m an only child so my mom [Deanna] was like, 'You have to have a wedding. I have to cry at your wedding. It’s a thing!'”
Amy isn’t quite as traditional or conservative as her cousins. Her wedding registry included some more lavish items like Kate Spade kitchenware and Ralph Lauren bedding, People reported. Her friends and family will have plenty of gift-giving opportunities as well since she is having three bridal showers.
A difference in taste didn’t stop her from asking her cousins for advice though. Amy revealed she also talked to Jill Duggar about her wedding, Us Weekly reported, but she didn’t reveal exactly what the new mom said. Amy had to FaceTime with Jill since she is on a mission trip in Central America with her husband Derick Dillard and their son, Israel.
As previously reported, Amy and Dillon are to be married Sept. 6. Unfortunately, “19 Kids and Counting” fans won’t get to see the Duggar family cousin get married since the show was canceled. “TLC [called] us yesterday stating they have decided that they will not be filming our wedding and they are ‘glad they got to work with us,’ ” King allegedly wrote in a deleted Instagram post, Radar Online reported. “So, Amy and myself apologize that we will not be able to share our special day with you all on the TLC network.”
Based on their recent posts, Amy and Dillon will likely give fans a glimpse into their special day on social media. The two have been sharing plenty of personal engagement and wedding shower pictures on Instagram and Twitter, and they recently set up a YouTube channel.
