Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth are officially married and looking forward to a long honeymoon. TLC

The Duggar family has been trying hard to keep details about Joy Anna Duggar’s upcoming wedding under wraps. Despite their best efforts, several details about her and fiancé Austin Forsyth’s big day have come to light. Before the couple ties the knot, check out everything we know about their “secret” wedding plans.

The Date

The biggest mystery of all surrounding Joy and Austin’s wedding is the date they will get married. The couple was last speculated to be tying the knot on May 20, though the day came and went without any hint of a possible event within the Duggar family. However, it has been revealed that Joy and Austin filed for a marriage license in Washington County, Arkansas, on May 11. The county’s rules dictate a couple must get married within 60 days after obtaining the license, which means Joy and Austin have until mid-July to get married.

Originally, Joy and Austin created a stir that they would be marrying on her 20th birthday on Oct. 28. The rumors started after the couple listed the date on their wedding registry. They later cleared up the rumors, writing on their account, “P.S. Our actual wedding date has not been announced yet!”

The Location

The Duggar Family News Facebook page, which reported on Joy and Austin’s May 20th wedding date, has shared that the event will be held close to Joy’s childhood home in Arkansas. “It seems like the wedding will be held close to the Duggar compound since the source said guests will be at the compound before and after the wedding,” the site previously reported.

The Dress

It was revealed in a scene from Jinger Duggar’s “Counting On” wedding special last year that each of the Duggar daughters wears a piece of their grandmother’s and mother’s shared wedding dress on their big day.

In a clip from the episode, uncovered by In Touch Weekly, Michelle Duggar, Joy’s mother, explains that she gives her daughters a “snippet” of the gown for them to use on their wedding day.

“Whenever one of the girls gets married they can take a piece of mom and grandma Duggar’s dress,” Jinger explained to the cameras. “We take a piece of that and incorporate somewhere in our dress.”

Jill Dillard said she was given a clip of the dress in a handkerchief, which she carried in her bouquet. Jessa Seewald wore a floral clip including a snippet of the gown in her bouquet as well. Jinger’s wedding dress designer sewed a heart shaped snippet of the dress into her gown near her heart. Based on the tradition, it’s likely Joy will get a similar gift.

The Guests

Duggar wedding are known for being big so it wouldn’t be shocking if Joy and Austin had over one thousand guests. While it is unclear who will be in Joy and Austin’s bridal party, it is apparent her big sister and former “buddy” Jill Dillard will be in attendance. Jill, her husband Derick and son Israel recently flew home to Arkansas in the middle of their mission trip in Central America, just in time for Joy’s big day. Jill and Derick also came home ahead of the arrival of their second son, who she is due to deliver in July.

The Honeymoon

Joy and Austin have never spoken publicly about their honeymoon plans and it is entirely possible his work schedule could interfere with a post-nuptials vacation. The Forsyth family’s Christian Fort Rock Family Camp and Christian Retreat Center, where Austin works and Joy is listed as a staff member, is due to open on June 1. Events at the facility are also scheduled through June 18.

Baby Plans

Joy and Austin have yet to say “I do” but they’ve already been talking about plans for a family. In April, Joy revealed that she wants to be a mother in five years time. In a Mother’s Day video for Michelle earlier this month, she followed up on her pregnancy comment, saying, “I can’t wait to be a mother myself.”

Austin has also spoken out about their family plans. While celebrating their joint bachelor and bachelorette party earlier this month, he shared he hope that his future children will enjoy like the outdoors like him. “My dad took me camping at a very age, our whole family, and its just something we’ve always enjoyed as a family and I hope to transfer that over to our family,” he said.
