Joy-Anna Duggar Freaked Out Before Marrying Austin Forsyth

Joy-Anna Duggar

Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth tied the knot back in May, but Counting On is just now catching up with the couple as they prepared for their big day. And apparently, it was almost too big of a deal for Joy to handle. On Monday night's episode, the 19-year-old was clearly overwhelmed while preparing for her wedding.


The episode took place about four weeks before their big day, and there were still lots of details to work out. However, Joy was clearly over it all, and even said the whole process was "overrated" during their cake testing. If you're overwhelmed eating delicious cake, it's a clear sign that emotions are high.

While cake tasting with Austin, Joy was completely indecisive, relying on his opinion at every turn. After hearing that she "didn't know" what she wanted one too many times, Austin commented, "...It's your cake," to which she clapped back, "It's OUR cake." Definitely way more tense and stressful than cake-tasting should be!

It wasn't just the cake though. Joy was also overwhelmed when looking at the wedding party attire. The ladies all got together at Jessa (Duggar) Seewald's house to look at bridesmaids' dresses, and Joy just looked miserable. Jessa told the camera, "I can tell she's feeling overwhelmed."

Being the awesome big sister she is, Jess took over the groomsmen's attire. Joy told her, "I don't even know how to do this stuff. That's why I need your help."

In all fairness, Joy did have another big stressor on her plate -- she and Austin were rushing to try and get their future home fixed up so they could move in after the wedding. They honestly didn't know if it would be done in time, and Austin suggested that they might have to sleep outside in a camper. "As long as I get to marry him, I can live anywhere," she responded.

Honestly, Joy-Anna has always been a self-admitted tomboy, so we're not going to read too much into her lack of interest in wedding planning. It's clear she loves Austin and was ready to start her life with him. And now they're going to be parents together! Let's hope that preparing for baby doesn't cause as much stress as the wedding planning did.
