Things wouldn’t feel right in the world if there wasn’t a Duggar wedding to talk about. Luckily, Counting On star Josiah Duggar is engaged to Lauren Swanson, and it looks like they will be tying the knot sooner than we thought. Will the couple be saying “I do” next month?
The anti-Duggar Facebook page Life Is Not Pickles and Hairspray revealed this week that sources are claiming the couple’s wedding date is June 30th. The couple just started courting in January and got engaged in March. It may seem like things are moving quickly, but that is how they do it in Duggar world.
The pair has been enjoying their time together these past few months, with a trip abroad to New Zealand and Australia, plus a road trip down to Waco, Texas, to visit Fixer Upper stars Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Market.
During their Texas trip, the couple posted a photo that featured Swanson wearing a short skirt, which is a violation of the Duggar family dress code. It seems she is taking notes from her future sisters-in-law and rebelling via her fashion choices.
“Enjoyed a beautiful evening in San Antonio on the river walk and checking out the Alamo with Lauren and the family!” Duggar wrote in the caption.
Fans loved Swanson’s bolder style and commented that Duggar should let his wife wear whatever she wants because a woman should be able to express herself however she sees fit.
It appears that Duggar is getting a little restless during the wait for his nuptials. Pictures have shown the two getting very handsy during their engagement and pushing the limit on the Duggar courting rules. It looks like their wedding day can’t get here fast enough for them.
The couple does have a registry with a date of December 31st, but we have discovered that the family likes to use decoy dates.
When Joy-Anna Duggar was engaged to Austin Forsyth, their registry had a date of October 2017. But, as we all know, the couple actually walked down the aisle on May 26th last year. This led to rumors of a shotgun wedding because Joy-Anna announced a pregnancy just 12 weeks later.
If Josiah and his bride-to-be are really getting married on June 30th, fans think they are being quite selfish because Joseph Duggar and his wife Kendra Caldwell are expecting a baby in June, and Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo are expecting a baby in July.
Getting to the wedding would be a challenge for both couples since one would have just welcomed a baby, while the other would be just days away from giving birth making it impossible to travel. Josiah and Swanson will be getting married in Arkansas, and Jinger and her husband live in Laredo, Texas.
The engaged couple has been tight-lipped about their wedding date, so we can’t be sure that June 30th is the big day. It is always possible that someone leaked the wrong day just to throw people off. But, chances are the wedding will be sooner rather than later because that is how the Duggars do things.
If Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson do get married in June, chances are fans will get the chance to see it all go down when new episodes of Counting On return to TLC later this summer.
