In 34 days, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar will give away their third oldest daughter in marriage. Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald, who will tie the knot on November 1st, have been planning for their big day since their engagement on August 14th.
"I'm super excited," Jessa told PEOPLE Magazine. "Everybody has really been pitching in."
The engaged couple has chosen their colors--navy blue, gray, and coral pink--and plans to have 10 bridesmaids and 10 groomsmen. So far, Jessa and Ben have sent out 800 invitations.They have not announced their honeymoon location but are planning to go somewhere warm. Perhaps they will follow in the footsteps of past Duggar newlyweds and head to the Carolinas. Josh and Anna honeymooned in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, while Jill and Derick spent their first week of marriage in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina.
As hinted in a recent episode of 19 Kids and Counting, Jessa and Ben's wedding guests will chow down on ice cream sundaes instead of traditional wedding cake.
An article in this week's edition of Us Weekly Magazine says that Jessa is training to become a midwife, like Jill. With two midwives and a birthing coach (Jana), the Duggars will be ready to welcome all those future grandchildren!
