Now that their wedding date had been formally set, '19 Kids and Counting' star Jessa Duggar and her fiancé Ben Seewald are keeping their hands busy with all the preparations for their big day.
In an interview with ABC News, the soon-to-be bride provided a few details about her wedding, "The guest list is pretty big, but not as big as my sister's," Jessa said. "My list is a little smaller [than Jill's was], but then Ben's guest list is bigger Derick's. It will be another Duggar-sized wedding!"
When Jill Duggar and her then-fiancé were married in June, the list of their invited guests reached 3,000 people, but only a total of 1,500 people showed up.
Reportedly, Jessa would like to imitate what her siblings Josh and Jill had done before they were married to their respective partners, which is to save her first kiss with Ben for the wedding. "We're really looking forward to the first kiss!" Jessa shared. "We're talking about it -- what if we miss or mess up? We're gonna have to plan this out or something!"
Also, the future bride said that she and Ben are planning to reuse the wedding decorations and the dresses worn by the flower girls during Jill and Derick's wedding. They want to save up on a big chunk of their wedding money so that they can splurge more on their planned honeymoon.
According to Jessa, "We're gonna go really simple with a lot of our food and even flowers and that type of stuff. People spend so much on flowers, it's outrageous! I'll go to the grocery and buy flowers! I don't know how many flowers we'll have in nature if it's cold outside but I was like, 'How about we just go pick [some]?'"
The 21-year-old reality show star and her 19-year-old fiancé announced their engagement on August 14, and the entire engagement and wedding planning will be documented on TLC's '19 Kids and Counting,' which will begin its newest season on September 2.
The said wedding is allegedly scheduled on November 1, and the show will feature it as well.
