Amy Duggar’s Department Store Bridal Shower Was Probably Way Better than Yours (PHOTOS)

amy duggarMost of us only get one wedding shower -- and that wedding shower usually isn't a lavish affair thrown by a department store. But 19 Kids and Counting's Amy Duggar just had the first of three wedding showers, and it was -- you guessed it -- thrown by a department store!


When Dillard's department store reached out to Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar's newly engaged niece (she's betrothed to Dillon King) and asked them if they could throw her a huge prenuptial bash, Duggar naturally said yes (wouldn't you?).

“We gave them a list of people and they were like, ‘The more the merrier,’” the reality star told Us Weekly.

“It is stress free. It was nice I didn’t have to give out invitations or any of that. They did all that. They went over and beyond.”

I should say so, considering there ended up being 300 guests!

Here are just a few of them (note Aunt Michelle's proud smile):

These special women made our day so special!! Thank you ladies!! � #forevergrateful

Dillard's also took care of all the food, including this gorgeous cake: 

And Duggar looked just as amazing as her cake in this chic white jumpsuit from BCBG:

White is totally in! I love my new jumpsuit from BCBG from @shopmaude �

More from The Stir: Amy Duggar Blasts the Family for Their Unrealistic Courting Rules

Looks like the day was a giant success all-around! And it's definitely great to see Duggar's family coming out in support of her marriage, especially since she's been so outspoken about how differently she views courting and marriage (basically, she thinks the whole no hand-holding until you're engaged and no kissing until the wedding thing is nuts). After all, we don't always think of the Duggars as particularly tolerant types, but I guess family comes first!

Congrats, Amy! With any luck, Dillard's will send you a wedding cake, too! ('Cause that cake looks gooooood.)
