Coming soon… another Duggar wedding! Jessa Duggar and her fiance Ben Seewald announced on Monday, Sept. 8, that they have set their wedding date for this fall after getting engaged last month.
The 19 Kids and Counting stars will walk down the aisle and exchange vows on Nov. 1.
Their engagement news comes the day after the fifth eldest Duggar child, 21, gave a close-up look via Instagram video of her “beautiful engagement ring!” The rock is a “.75 carat diamond–18 karat gold band,” the bride-to-be shared.
Duggar and Seewald, 19, got engaged on Aug. 14 after 11 months of dating. “We are so blessed to be engaged!” the couple gushed in a statement. “God has written an amazing story through our courtship, and another chapter has just begun! We are thrilled to see what the future holds — especially the wedding bells!”
Jessa, like her recently-married (and pregnant!) big sister Jill Duggar, plans to save her first kiss with Seewald for the altar. On her family’s reality show, the future bride gushed about her signifiant other. “When I’m with him, around him, I think he brings out the best in me,” she said.
Ahead of their wedding date announcement, both Jessa and Ben spent some quality time on a “triple date!” this past weekend with her big brother Joshua, his wife Anna, her sister Jill, 23, and brother-in-law Derick Dillard. She is the third of 19 Duggar children to get married.
In conjunction with Jessa and Seewald’s news on Monday, TLC announced that the couple’s engagement will air in a one-hour special later this fall.
