Duggar Family: Ready to Film Jinger's Wedding?!


For obvious reasons, the Duggar family's second TLC reality series has been surrounded by controversy.

The Duggars' first show, 19 Kids and Counting, was canceled in response to the Josh Duggar sex scandals, and many former fans were justifiably outraged that the network was so quick to give the disgraced family a second shot.

Declining ratings and bailing advertisers have led to talk of Counting On getting canceled, but for now at least, it looks like the network that made the family famous is still all-in on the Duggars.

Insiders say the Duggars are currently filming Counting On Season 3, and as predicted, it will reportedly feature an entire episode devoted to the Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo wedding.

In fact, it will likely feature several episodes that revolve around the upcoming nuptials.

As fans of the show know, producers basically got an entire season out of Jinger and Jeremy's courtship and engagement.

The proposal itself was teased for several weeks, and viewers got to see Jeremy pop the question only after a bizarre bait-and-switch clip show.

Jeremy and Jinger

So you can bet the folks behind Counting On are planning to get a lot of mileage out of Jinger and Jeremy's wedding, as well.

A leaked production schedule led to rumors that Jinger and Jeremy would get married over the weekend.

That didn't happen, but the family was spotted filming scenes at the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade.

The show generally takes place chronologically, so we suppose it's not surprising that the Jinger and Jeremy wedding isn't taking place right away.

It stands to reason that producers would want to film a few episodes about the build-up to the wedding, because as so many irritated fans pointed out over the course of Season 2, they really don't have much else to go on in terms of storylines.

Sure there's Jessa Duggars second pregnancy, but Duggar births are like Trump scandals:

It feels like there's one every week.

The importance of Jinger's relationship has led to some interesting accusations, as some fans believe Jinger and Jeremy are getting married for the ratings.

We doubt that's true, but the quickness with which they've rushed through the courtship process does seem to indicate they had some additional incentives.

Of course, given the fact that Duggar kids are prohibited from having any sort of premarital sexual contact, they might not need any additional incentive.

You can now buy Bella Swan’s ACTUAL wedding dress


When Bella Swan and Edward Cullen finally tied the knot, who didn’t swoon over that stunning forest wedding – and Bella’s incredible Carolina Herrera Twilight wedding dress.

We totally bought into the romance of it all and so did Kristen Stewart apparently, who previously spoke about how her onscreen marriage to Robert Pattinson felt like a ‘real wedding‘.

Twilight Wedding Dress

And with the amount of time, effort and money that was spent bringing it to life, it’s no surprise. The bespoke Carolina Herrera dress was reportedly valued at an eye-watering $35,000 and was paired with shoes by Manolo Blahnik. Pretty swanky, don’t you agree?

So when the news came out that you can now buy the Twilight wedding dress, we got pretty excited… although it wasn’t exactly the dress we had in mind. Because instead of the Carolina Herrera dress, it’s actually the one from Bella’s nightmare which is up for sale.

Up for sale in both the bloodied version (for those who are into the ombre look) and non-bloodied version (for the traditionalists out there), both dresses are sold with the veil and are both estimated to sell for between $1500 and $2000.

Both dresses are being sold as part of the Twilight Saga Auction, which will take place on 19th and 20th November 2016 and sell over 900 original pieces from the five film franchise, making it pretty much a Twi-hard gold mine.

As well as the Twilight wedding dress, there’s also the chance to snap up Bella Swan’s engagement ring – you know, the one which belonged to Edward’s mother? Yeah, that one. Listed as containing 69 cz diamonds in an oval pave setting, the ring is predicted to sell for between $3000 – $5000, making it one of the pricier lots in the listing.

Meanwhile, Team Jacob fans can buy the charm bracelet he gave Bella that featured a little wooden wolf he’d carved himself. Or some of those shorts he’s so fond of bursting out of, if that’s more your bag… #justsayin.

Three ways you can save money as a wedding guest

There are times when it seems each week brings a new engagement announcement on Facebook, and every save-the-date card makes your long-held dream to backpack across Europe seem even more remote.

During your 20s or 30s, back-to-back weddings can turn a joyful occasion into one breathless swipe of a credit card after another. These festivities come right when most people are trying desperately to pay off our student loans, save for a house or move to a new apartment that’s more Frasier and less Girls.

The cost of weddings is rising — for the guests.

As much as you want to celebrate your friend or family member’s love, you shouldn’t blow your savings on their wedding. Just as important, you shouldn’t feel guilty about turning down an invitation occasionally, even if that seems soul-crushingly awkward.

Follow these tips to emerge from your next string of weddings without credit card debt haunting you — unlike the groomsman who gave that embarrassing toast at the reception; his speech will follow him forever.

Set your own wedding budget

No rules state that you need to shell out $100 on every wedding gift, no matter how close you are to the bride or groom. Only you can determine how much you’ll spend on each wedding, says Lizzie Post, etiquette expert and president of the Emily Post Institute. Set your own spending limit and prioritize the people who are most important to you. You’ll avoid arriving at the destination wedding for co-worker No. 3 with a maxed-out credit card and a thick aura of resentment.

To start, choose a maximum wedding budget for the upcoming year or for the next several ceremonies you’ve been invited to. Include the total amount you plan to spend on travel, lodging, attire, gifts and additional pre-wedding events if you’re a member of the bridal party.

As you plan your budget, make sure to keep at least a few hundred dollars in an emergency fund, and try not to carry a balance on your credit cards.

You can always (politely) decline

Say you decide $500 is a reasonable amount to allocate to wedding costs for the year. You’ll now be able to accept invitations only to those events that fit your budget. That could mean attending your close friend’s wedding in a different city but not your acquaintance’s local one.

When you break the news, no need to explain that your budget is the culprit. A simple “no” RSVP and “I’m really sorry, but I won’t be able to make it” is fine, Post says. If you’re closer with the couple, say, “Between budget and schedule, I just really can’t make it work.” You should still send a gift, but use the tips below to save some cash.

Weddings also include many other events, such as engagement parties and bridal showers, and you have even more obligations if you’re a bridesmaid or groomsman. Ask the best man or maid of honour how much the bachelor or bachelorette party will likely cost before committing. If you can’t afford to go, you are hereby permitted to decline any pre-wedding events, even as a member of the bridal party.

“It’s more important for you to be present with them on the big day,” says Jennifer Spector, spokeswoman and director of brand strategy at Zola, a wedding registry website.

Keep gifts minimal

A “yes” RSVP means you’ll attend the event and bring a gift unless the invitation explicitly says otherwise, Post says. This tradition holds true even for destination weddings. If you have to fly to the event and pay for a hotel, you’re still on the hook for a present.

When you’re on a budget, consider contributing to a group gift, Spector says, which might be an option through the couple’s registry: Put $30 toward your friend’s coveted KitchenAid stand mixer, for instance, instead of buying the whole thing.

Cookbooks and small household items are also solid lower-cost options, Post says. Handmade gifts can be cheaper and more personal, but they work best when you have a particular talent or craft that you’re known for.

“If you’re going to go the homemade route, it needs to really be special,” Post says.
