Honey Boo Boo stars "Mama" Shannon June and Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson will finally tie the knot May 5 after nine yeas of being together.
The wedding ceremony for the reality show stars will take place in McIntyre, Georgia. According to an invitation received by TMZ, the wedding will be a "taped event", meaning that fans of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" will get to see the couple's marriage share their nuptials on the small screen.
According to TMZ, no cell phones, cameras, or outside video taping is allowed for the event, and guests are required to wear "full redneck attire."
"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" debuted on TLC last summer and has been pulling in high ratings for the channel.
The show follows the life of 6-year old beauty pageant contestant, Alana Thompson, the daughter of Mama June and Sugar Bear.
The child made her television debut on the network's hit show "Toddlers and Tiaras" and stood out with viewers due to her energetic and expressive personality.
The show also chronicles the life of the Thompson family, which includes Alana's mother June, and sisters Jessica and Anna who also appeared on "Toddlers and Tiaras" alongside the child star.
"America kind of wanted to know what our life was like outside of the pageant world, and this show will portray that," said June in an interview with CNN last year.
"We do a lot of mud bogging, four-wheel riding, going to community events," she added. "Viewers will still see the preparation for pageants, but it's mainly focused on the Thompson family and the crazy things we do to pass the time by. I think America will get the gist of who we actually are."
