Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar just celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary on July 21, and Michelle took the time to blog about their wedding and honeymoon, which were kept at low costs thanks to planning and their need to keep things low-key.
"My wedding to Jim Bob almost 30 years ago was sweet and simple," Michelle wrote. "We actually got married in the hallway of the building – we had set up folding chairs to use as pews! I wanted to do as much as I could myself as a way to save money and keep the expenses reasonable. We didn't buy flowers and barely even decorated the hall. I even made my own bouquet using fake flowers so I could keep them to decorate my home with later."
Michelle went on to note that she made her own wedding cake but had a friend decorate it and that she wore Jim Bob's mother's wedding dress for the ceremony. It was something special that she wanted to do and took great pride in. It was the perfect day for the couple, and on their 25th anniversary, they repeated as much of it as possible: the same pastor to perform the ceremony, which took place in the hallway of their church; the same reception with cake, nuts, and punch. more >>
This couple were married in front of 300 friends and family at a secluded 130-acre estate on Kauai's north shore. This was right near the town Bethany had grown up in. The wedding party consisted of 13 bridesmaids and 8 groomsmen, who were all be barefoot for the ceremony. The happy couple had wrote and said their own vows, which are very inspiring. When listening to them it may bring tears of joy to your eyes.
"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." - 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

The young women on "Teen Mom 2" have been through a lot, which is why people love watching their stories on MTV. One of the moms, Kailyn Lowry, has revealed some of what viewers can expect this coming season, which just aired on Wednesday night.
"I think in the beginning with Javi adjusting to having a newborn and me having two kids was really rough on us and we didn't really know what to expect," Lowry told OK Magazine. "It did strain our relationship a little bit, but things are good now. I felt that maybe we weren't happy, but in retrospect I think that it ended up just being the stress of a new baby and trying to balance things out. I don't regret saying it (I'm not happy) but things are better now and I'm happy that I don't feel that way anymore."
As for son Isaac, who Lowry had with former boyfriend Jo, he is in love with little brother Lincoln. Whenever he's away with his dad, Lowry revealed, they often Facetime or Skype so that he can see Lincoln. And things are better with Jo and his girlfriend Vee, whom Kailyn was not very happy about in the beginning. They actually all come together for Isaac's birthday in an upcoming episode. more >>
