19 Kids and Counting "Jill Says Yes to the Dress"...
Michelle boards a plane to Washington D.C. with her five oldest daughters (Jana, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, and Joy-Anna) to shop for Jill's wedding dress.
Jill says she is "excitedly nervous" for her big day.
"I'm very excited for the moment that Jill is going to try on these wedding dresses," says Michelle. "But at the same time, it's kind of surreal because I realize, 'Wow, we're really here.'"
"I think having so many siblings and weddings coming up in our future, I think we are going to be doing a lot of wedding dress shopping," adds Jana.
When they arrive in D.C., the Duggar ladies meet up with Anna and her kiddos for brunch. During the meal, Jill asks Jana to be her maid of honor and asks Jessa, Jinger, and Joy to be bridesmaids. (Johannah will also be a bridesmaid.) "I chose Jana as my maid of honor because growing up, we've always been really close," says Jill.
The girls are thrilled, especially Anna, who was not expecting to be in the wedding party.
At Ava Laurenne Bride, Jill gets the "Princess Treatment" package. First, she has her hair and makeup done, and then the girls share heart-felt notes with the bride-to-be. Joy, who is especially close to Jill, breaks down crying when she reads her letter. "She was my live baby doll," Jill says of Joy.
The dress shopping begins, and Jill falls in love with the eighth dress she tries on. "It's what I was praying for," she says. According to Jill's family, the dress fits her personality perfectly. Michelle's dream wedding dress would be one with poofy sleeves and a lot of sparkles, but Jill's styles are simpler than her mother's.
While the girls are away, Jim Bob and John-David take Derick Dillard and Ben Seewald on a camping trip. While the guys drive to the cabin, Jim Bob offers marriage advice to Derick and Ben. He tells the young men that love is more important than money, that communication is key, and that what the wife says often goes.
John-David says his dad gives him a hard time about being single and has tried to set him up with girls in the past. "One of these days, I'll find the right one, and I'll join the ranks," says John.
While preparing to rock climb, the guys joke that John-David is the most expendable because he does not have a wife, fiancé, or girlfriend, but Jim Bob assures his son that they all love him and would miss him.
After rock climbing, the guys jump off a cliff while attached to a bungee cord. Derick and Ben take the leap with no problem, but it takes Jim Bob a few minutes to gather enough confidence. John-David decides not to jump.
"You know, I've got 19 children," reasons Jim Bob. "Can they afford to lose their father?"
"I jumped off, and my life flashed before my eyes," says Derick.
As their adventure comes to a close, the guys take a ride on a zip line. At the end of the trip, Jim Bob says Derick and Ben passed the test. "Two daughters down, seven more to go," says the dad of 19.
