Jill Duggar’s wedding day is finally here. Fans of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” have watched Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard’s relationship bloom on camera for the past few seasons. The pair got engaged in the Season 7 finale – and now their wedding will be shown on screen.
Viewers have witnessed everything from the dress shopping to the cake tasting leading up to the nuptials. But on Tuesday, “19 Kids and Counting” fans will finally get to experience a Duggar wedding. The TLC special, “19 Kids and Counting: Jill’s Wedding,” will air at 8 p.m. EDT and show everything from their joyous day – including a couple of surprises from the Duggar family.
“The whole Duggar family may have some surprises in store,” Dillard’s former college roommate, Stephen Jones, told People magazine. “Derick has a very goofy personality, and it hasn’t quite shown it all. There’s more to come.”
Fans of the hit TLC series must wait to see what those surprises are, but one that was already revealed is that the couple chose to see each other prior to walking down the aisle. Despite waiting until pronnounced man and wife to share their first kiss, Jill and Derek chose to take the non-traditional route in order to share a private moment before their ceremony.
Other highlights from the special will include Jim Bob and Michelle’s reactions to seeing their daughter for the first time in her wedding dress. Plus, viewers will get to see the entire Duggar family participating in Jill and Derek’s wedding party.
Off camera Jill, 23, wed Derek, 25, in Springdale, Arkansas on June 21. The newlyweds announced in August that they were already expecting their first child together. The baby, recently revealed to be a boy, is due in March 2015.
