Wedding bells will be ringing in the Duggar family household a lot sooner than we expected!
Joseph Duggar got engaged to his fiancée Kendra Caldwell back in May — after he proposed at his sister Joy-Anna Duggar’s wedding — and now they’re already in the process of planning their wedding! The couple set up an online registry which also revealed their wedding date!
The 22-year-old and his bride-to-be will be tying the knot on October 7, 2017, according to their Amazon wedding registry. They’ve included the standard home appliances like a $65 Hoover vacuum cleaner, a $200 water filtration system, a $279 KitchenAid mixer, and a $22 iron.
It seems like he’s also following in the footsteps of the tradition that his sisters Jill Dillard, Jessa Seewald, and Joy-Anna Forsyth started — asking for gift cards to various restaurants for future date nights! Joe and Kendra are asking guests to shower them with a $50 gift card to P.F. Chang’s, a $25 gift card to Texas Roadhouse, a $25 gift card to The Cheesecake Factory. They’ll also be enjoying date nights in with a $25 gift card to Papa John’s and a $20 card to Domino’s.
The couple seems to be very much into fashion, and they’re also asking guests to fund their new wardrobes with gift cards to Gap, Express, American Eagle Outfitters, Old Navy, and Claire’s.
With their wedding date three months away, Joe and Kendra’s guests have already started shopping through their registry and some items have already been purchased — like a set of non-stick aluminum frying pans, a cast iron apple peeler, and a fruit infusion water pitcher.
It looks like the happy couple is looking forward to their big day, and they’ve worked past the drama that surrounded them in the beginning of their courtship. A former employee of the Duggar family revealed to The Hollywood Gossip that Kendra had dated Joe’s brother Jedidiah before Joe “bumped” in and stole his brother’s girlfriend —and Duggar family patriarch Jim Bob tried to keep it under wraps.
“There’s a whole world that goes on that really isn’t so,” the insider revealed about the reality TV family. “When the cameras aren’t rolling, it’s a whole different life.”
