    The wedding is coming on fast for 19 Kids & Counting star Jill Duggar and her fiance Derick Dillard. Jill is a woman with a vision, and that vision is shabby chic -- this will apply even to the bridesmaid dresses her sisters don AND the hairstyles they all select. Jill might know what she wants, but does that make her a bridezilla? Her sisters answer that question with a resounding N to the O. 

    I gotta say, I'm a pretty laid-back person. But I will totally admit that if I ever get married (say a prayer to the furry Buddha I worship that this will not be the case, can't tie this Becca down) that I will certainly get frantic and worried and probably cry about stuff like the color of chair covers. Jill is planning a wedding larger than any event I have ever attended (unless you count that dream I once had where I went to the Oscars). But Jill? She is as cool as the proverbial cucumber.

    Jessa Duggar seems to be everyone's sweetheart of the moment, as she gears up for her November 1 wedding with Ben Seewald and does super sweet things like send thank-you notes to fans who bought her something off her registry. All it takes to change that though is one social media post from the 19 Kids and Counting star mentioning how precious she believes life to be.

    The reality star recently visited the Holocaust museum and posted to Instagram about the senseless tragedy that occurred when the Nazis murdered millions of innocents because they didn't value their lives as equal to their own. And then the Internet went nuts because of course she just compared the Holocaust to abortion.

    One of our favorite things about the Duggar family is just how down-to-earth they genuinely seem to be. These reality stars have seen their fame explode in recent years thanks to their hit TLC show 19 Kids & Counting, but they haven't let that affect their core values.

    Take Jill Duggar's and Jessa Duggar's weddings. Jill's was last June, and even though a thousand of her closest loved ones attended, they did it on a budget. Jessa is marrying her sweetie Ben Seewald in just over a month, and the lovebirds are planning to reuse Jill and Derick Dillard's decorations so they can save money for the honeymoon. And judging from the sweet note she sent to one fan, Jessa is going to make one very thoughtful wife.

    Today on 19 Kids & Counting, it was boys versus girls! While we're sure the dudes had fun camping and rock climbing, our hearts were definitely with Jill Duggar as she and her sisters went to Washington, DC, to try and find the perfect dress to celebrate Jill and Derick Dillard's special day. It was touching, emotional, and sweet to see the girls shop together. It was also hilarious to hear what Michelle Duggar had in mind for a wedding dress -- because it CERTAINLY wasn't what Jill was looking for!

    You'd think Michelle would suggest something demure, right? But that's not the case. Michelle is the first to admit that her idea of a "perfect" wedding dress is still inspired by her childhood dreams. This meant HUGE dresses, with loads of sparkles and tulle and all that loud jazz! It was surprising to hear that this is how Michelle thinks a wedding dress should be -- I mean, to say the least.

    You know ... there might be something to this whole courting thing. While the idea of waiting until your wedding day to share your first kiss with someone may seem completely weird to most of us, you can't argue with the fact that Jill Duggar and Jessa Duggar are both smitten with their men.

    Newlyweds Jill and Derick Dillard are of course expecting their first child together, and she hasn't been shy about gushing over what an amazing dad-to-be he is. And Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are in full-on wedding planning mode for their upcoming nuptials on November 1, but that doesn't mean the 19 Kids and Counting stars don't have time for sappy Instagram posts arguing over who loves the other one more.

    The November 1 wedding date of Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald is fast-approaching, and they've only been engaged for a few months, so you know what that means: The couple is in hard-core preparation mode right now. It's doubtful that anyone was ever under the impression that Ben and Jessa were going to have a Real Housewives-esque wedding, but the adorable pair's nuptials (and party afterward) may be much more low-key and DIY than we thought. Whether she realized it or not, Jessa just dropped a major hint about her wedding with one, singular Instagram photo.

    This week on 19 Kids & Counting, Jim Bob Duggar focused all of his matchmaking attention on Ben Seewald and his daughter Jessa Duggar. With Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard already planning their wedding, Jim Bob's attention is now on Jessa and Ben all the time. That's very easy now that Ben is living and working for the Duggars. Tonight, Jim Bob put Ben to the test. If you ask me, that's a small price to pay in exchange for free food, lodging, and easy access to your beloved -- with a chaperone, of course. 

    While the other Duggars had a fairly relaxing day, John David Duggar put Ben to work. It quickly became apparent that while Ben definitely has his skills (he seems like a kind and patient dude), being a natural Mr. Fix-It doesn't seem to be one of them. Luckily, he's got a great group of teachers sure to help him up his home improvement skills. That's important, because being a master of DIY is the biggest requirement Jim Bob has for a future son-in-law.

    Michelle Duggar turned 48 on Saturday, and was surrounded by no shortage of love from her family! I guess that's one advantage to having so many kiddos -- you're going to get lots of birthday love.

    First off, the 19 Kids and Counting matriarch got pampered by daughter Jill Duggar, who is expecting her first child with husband Derick Dillard. The newlywed posted a picture of her and her mom getting pedicures, and included a sweet message.

    This week, we saw two 30-minute episodes of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting, and I continue to marvel at how sharp and together the Duggar family is with their handling of media, family news, and show promotion. These guys are GOOD. In today's exclusive episode below, I take on what makes the Duggars so relatable and an insight into the WHY behind Michelle's agreement to have 19 children.

    Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald may have just gotten engaged, but these are the Duggars we're talking about, and long engagements aren't really their thing. The 19 Kids and Counting stars have set a date of November 1, 2014 -- less than two months to go!

    You know what that means ... it's time to stalk their wedding registry. What does one get for young reality stars who are saving their first kiss for their wedding day, anyway? Likely the same thing you got the bride's big sister at her own wedding just month prior -- Because Jessa's wedding registry looks an awful lot like her big sister Jill Dillard's did last spring.
