The Duggars run down the aisle — sometimes quite literally — wasting no time getting hitched after getting engaged. So when is Josiah Duggar's wedding to Lauren Swanson? The happy couple hasn't announced a date for their nuptials, but we have reason to believe we're only a few months away from the special day.
Here's our logic: Joseph Duggar wed Kendra Caldwell just three and a half months after the fam announced those lovebirds' engagement. Jinger Duggar tied the knot with Jeremy Vuolo only three months after he got down on bended knee. And Joy-Anna Duggar said "I do" to Austin Forsyth not even three months after saying "I will."
So if this trend holds, Josiah and Lauren will marry three or four months after getting engaged. The fam announced the engagement on March 5, so we're predicting the nuptials will take place in June or July.
It's been a whirlwind romance for Josiah and Lauren. They only announced their courtship in January, after all. "We are overjoyed to begin this new phase of our lives together," Josiah told People at the time. "Through the years our families' friendship has allowed us to get to know one another as friends. I can definitely say I have found a great friend … even better than I could have hoped for or imagined."
Just six weeks later, the family started ringing the wedding bells after Josiah proposed to Lauren in the exact same place that his father, Jim Bob, popped the question to his mother, Michelle. "We are so excited to announce that Josiah and Lauren are officially engaged!" the fam wrote in a March 5 blog post. "We have prayed for many years that the Lord would bring the right spouses to each of our children. We have known Lauren and her family for a very long time and have seen how she has grown in her knowledge and understanding of the Lord. She is a wonderful, caring, compassionate young lady."
We don't exactly know what the big rush is, but hey, different strokes for different folks. Let's just hope any wedding planner the Duggars have on retainer can handle the accelerated timeline!
