Amy Duggar's wedding day may have been all about her, but that didn't stop her from trying to make members of her famous family feel special. The ceremony took place over Labor Day weekend and, according to reports, the entire Duggar family -- with the exception of Josh Duggar, who is in rehab -- was in attendance. With Josh Duggar's most recent scandal, which revealed he had been an active user on the cheating site Ashley Madison, plaguing the entire family, Amy Duggar said she made sure to do a little something special for his wife, Anna Duggar, and mother, Michelle Duggar.
According to People magazine, Amy Duggar was elated that the family would even consider attending her wedding given the current controversy surrounding their family. She told the publication she welcomed them, especially Anna Duggar, 27, warmly adding that they even shared an emotional moment together. Amy Duggar's kind gestures didn't stop there. Not only did she include Anna Duggar's daughter Mackynzie, as well as several other younger Duggar children, in the ceremony as flower girls, she also gifted her and Michelle Duggar, 49, something special.
"I gave Aunt Michelle a gift certificate for her favorite restaurant so she and uncle Jim Bob can have a really sweet date night," Amy Duggar told People. "And I felt like Anna needed to be pampered, so I got her a mani-pedi certificate to a nail salon. I feel like she needs that."
People reports that Amy Duggar's "dream come true" wedding was the perfect temporary escape for the entire Duggar family, who became famous for TLC's now-canceled series "19 Kids and Counting." The Duggar cousin and her now-husband, Dillon King, are said to have stood before a homemade banner, covered in words from the Bible, to say "I do" before hundreds of guests, which included both family and friends. The pair were married at an outdoor chapel at Horton Farms in Bentonville, Arkansas. Before she and Dillon King exchanged rings and vows, Amy Duggar is said to have snuck in some quality time with her family.
"There's been so much heartache and pain, and it's just a really rough time," she said. "But my family is closer now than it ever has been. It meant the world to me to have them there."
Prior to getting hitched, Amy Duggar said neither she nor her hubby was stressed about their wedding plans. In fact, at the time, she told People she and Dillon King were "having a lot of fun" with their wedding planning. She added that she couldn't wait to be rid of her controversial last name and her reputation as the "Rebel Duggar" due to her differing level of faith. She told the publication that, while she may not share their extreme Christian views, she does abide by a certain set of moral guidelines.
