'Teen Mom' Kailyn Lowry's Wedding Details Are Sure to Disappoint Someone

Love & Learn 16

kailyn lowry teen mom 2After tying the knot with husband Javi Marroquin in a courthouse ceremony, Kailyn Lowry is a married woman. But that's not stopping her from planning the wedding of her dreams. Confused? No need to be ... The MTV star explained her two weddings to OK!

The two decided to get hitched the first time just before Javi jetted off to Air Force training. "We got married at the courthouse, but our wedding is this fall," she explained. "We’re doing it all like if we never got married the first time." Awesome!

While there are some people who might question why Kailyn feels the need to do that (her baby daddy Jo, for instance, but his criticism seems to extend far beyond the wedding), I would hope/think there are more who will support her decision to do a full-blown, "belated" affair ...

But you never know. When it comes to getting married, a bride and groom may think anyone who loves them could get behind any decision they make. From getting married for practical reasons and enjoying the party part later on to wearing blue shoes instead of ivory ones, I've learned just about ANY decision you make as a bride is destined to stir up someone's dissenting opinion. (It's like being President Obama!) 

During my own planning process, I admit there are times we've actually sought the opinions of parents or friends, because they've been there, and we haven't yet. We didn't realize that having a more formal, traditional invitation could mean it'll stand the test of time and become a real family keepsake. We stood corrected on a sit-down dinner being the best, most elegant option for our mix of guests. But there are other battles we've had to stand our ground on (like DJ over band, Miami vs. NJ, etc.).

But ultimately, even if what you want to do is not what's expected or conventional -- you know what, especially if that's the case! -- if it's what you and your fiance want, you need to just go for it. Sounds like that's exactly what Kailyn and Javi are doing, and if that's the case, good for them!

What was an "unpopular" wedding-related decision you and your husband stood your ground on?

As an Army wife, this is a very typical Military wedding story, I hear this story from every other married couple myself included.

:eye roll:


You are married, by definition, you cannot have a wedding. You can only have a party.


I don't care if she has a party; but don't pretend you aren't married.


You made your choice when you went to the courthouse.  If a full blown wedding was your desire, then you can either wait or get the plans in gear and get it done.... but don't get married and then pretend to get married all over again.

They are MORE than welcome to have a ceremony little miss eye roll. If thats what they want. Are you gonna sit there at tell people who want to renew their vows they can't? It's basically the same thing, but if they'd like to call it their "real wedding" stfu.

stfu yourself dirtymoon... it isn't a wedding ceremony and they are already married.  Renew their vows, but you can't pretend you aren't married and tell everyone it's a wedding... cuz it ain't!

Live and let live, people. If they want to have a wedding party, good for them. The husband is a soldier for crying out loud, why so much nastiness?

If people can get maried to 4-5 different people in a lifetime, they can have their wedding too. The beauty of living in America is you have the freedom to do as you wish.

They aren't pretending they are not married. They are just doing the whole ceremony later on.  Everyone already knows they are married.. They can call it a "wedding ceremoney" if they want to.  Who are you to judge manderspanders... Its not your wedding/life, so move on.

To answer the question. My husband and I eloped while on R&R from deployment. We managed to get the same leave dates and went to Maui. My mother was furious and still is she didnt get "her wedding". And eventually we will have a *gasp* wedding ceremony to renew our vows with our families.


I am happy for them. I hope the courts don't stop Kailyn from taking her son with her and Javi when the PCS.

I had originally planned on having a typical wedding but my husband found out he was getting deployed during the planning stages so a couple weeks later we threw together a tiny ceremony at my parents house. We just invited our direct family- parents, siblings, grandparents and had my uncle who is a preacher do our ceremony. It was perfect, I don't like crowds or being the center of attention. Sometimes with huge, expensive weddings people seem to lose track of what's really important. Focusing more on impressing people with a big crowd, best venues, etc. That all seems too stressful to me. I just wanted to think about marrying the man I love without having to worry about everything else. Later on I did have a wedding celebration but even that was just with extended family and close friends.

Oh for the love! My husband and I did a private ceremony in the pastor's office with just our parents. His grandmother had passed away before we got engaged, and we wanted to honor her by being married in her church (and ours). Since we lived together with our two children, in order to use the church, we had to be married because one of us moving out wasn't an option. We didn't pretend to not be married when we had our ceremony in January. The pastor stated before the ceremony that we were continuing in front of our friends and family what we started before. We did keep it a secret from some. I didn't want my siblings and grandmother to be upset because they missed it, but they all know now. And yes, I called it a wedding because I could! Get over it
