Jana Duggar is forever a bridesmaid, never a bride … and boy will she have a lot of bridesmaid dresses by the time all is said and done.
The next member of the Duggar family to tie the knot will presumably be Joseph, who is eyeing this fall for his wedding to Kendra Caldwell.
Just minutes after Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth’s wedding, Joseph popped the question to Kendra to become next in line.
Previously, Joe bumped out Jedidiah Duggar – his own brother – to make a move on Kendra, but that’s neither here nor there right now.
In any case, they’re looking at October for a wedding date, and naturally, they’ve enlisted Jana Duggar to help with the preparations.
You’d think that between doing Michelle’s housework, taking care of her siblings and Jana raising Josh Duggar’s kids, she’d have a full plate.
Might as well pile more on though, right? She lives for this!
Jana and her twin, John David Duggar, accompanied the future newlyweds to Kentucky to score a dress for Kendra’s monumetal occasion.
Jana, John David (their personal pilot) and their mother Michelle Duggar all joined in to help a girl out, and pose with some fans of course.
The eldest daughter of Michelle and Jim Bob, 27-year-old Jana has never been engaged, despite being engaged in all the family activities.
Recent rumors of Jana Duggar courting a family friend got the fan base all kinds of fired up, but both families actually shot that one down.
You know Jana’s love life is a topic of great interest when people actually go on record talking about it. That’s not likely to change, either.
Just because she’s single doesn’t mean it’s for lack of interest, and the fact that Jana has rejected multiple men simply adds to the mystery.
For now, though, she’s back in a familiar spot.
You can expect Kendra’s wedding dress shopping will be front and center when you watch Counting On online this fall on TLC.
Jana, a fan favorite, obviously doesn’t have a wedding of her own to plan, or a relationship to devote time to, so she’ll be there.
Fans were happy to see her on social media.
“Jana is beautiful,” one fan said beneath the photo above. “She always looks great. John David looks more out [sic] together than usual.”
Another wrote, “Jana knows how to dress.”
Yes. Yes she does. And to bite her tongue. One can only imagine what she must be feeling given her role in this famous family and in life.
As always, she will assume her usual place on the back burner for the most part as Joseph and Kendra prepare to tie the knot.
“We are super excited,” the couple said to People earlier this summer. “It’s great to not be courting anymore, now we’re engaged!”
Joseph described his proposal thusly:
“I was definitely nervous going into it, but I wasn’t afraid that she was going to say no, because she has said, ‘I’m just waiting on you!'”
Many members of Duggar Nation also thought they might receive news of a Joy-Anna or Jinger pregnancy on the September 11 premiere.
So much for that. Joy-Anna is pregnant with her first child, she announced yesterday, just three months after marrying Austin Forsyth.
With Jessa and Jill both welcoming their second kids within the past year, there will be no shortage of storylines for producers this fall.
