I just got married two weeks ago and my (fabulous) dress had pockets--real ones. It was fantastic. I kept my vows in them during the ceremony and for the rest of the party I had my phone--not so much

What I don’t get- Lauren had a very clear vision of what she wanted. From fabric to cut. Why the hell did they put her in 3 lace dresses and one with a very big skirt?????? 

Even if they want to create some drama for TV- there are surely more dresses that would at least have fit her idea.

This does not look good for the shop in my opinion. Come here and we give you exactly what you don’t like? I can see trying something out of your comfort zone when what you initially wanted just doesn’t work but this was ridiculous.

RIGHT!  If they wanted to create drama they shouldnt have included the TH about how she knew exactly what she wanted and what she didnt want. The way it played out made the shop look like they just DGAF.

I'm gonna give him/her a pass on this one. When I refer to myself and my cousins, I still say "we kids" or "us kids" depending on subject/object. The youngest cousin is 41, and the oldest is 55.

Aren't JD/Jana kind of old for party games like that? Maybe not, I don't know. I don't know many people in their late 20's who have birthday parties, and when they do, they might involve fun things like wine or karaoke. 

This might be the wrong place to ask, but I've been out of the Duggar loop for a couple of years. Do any of the adult kids have actual jobs? Is everyone still living on TLC money? I understand what Jill and Derrick are doing (or not doing) but I wasn't sure about everyone else. My husband asked me if any of them actually worked and I told him I had no idea. What does Josh do now? Other than cheat on and/or breed with his wife.

I wish they'd give us more talking heads with Jana and John- they're kind of adorable together. Sadly, now that John is about to get married, I think he'll only be featured with Abbie from now on (which is probably cute too... In a different way). 

Ugh.... I'm turning into a leg jumper. Tell me something awful about them again.

Elijah may as well be a Duggar at this point, because he is always there. He’s a really nice guy, actually. I won’t be surprised if he ends up being one of JD’s groomsmen.

That birth center is really nice. I had my last at a birth center and it was much more basic. Ugh Jeremy is such a ham. Always wants the attention on him.  Funny how the Bates still wear skirts to ski but their courting rules are more lax. So many fundies, so many variations! Surprised they didn't go to Mizzzz Renee for the dress.

Jinger has turned out to be the most conservative and dull of all the older girls. She never belly laughs, teases Jeremy, or does anything relaxed. We never see her mess up, or poke fun at herself. I was mentally WILLING her to sit on the damn birth stool but knew she would never ever do such a thing on TV.

Yes, they're too old for crap like that and its also super weird to be hanging out with friends/siblings doing stuff thats aimed at a fan base.  Do we really think that Jana wants to be identified as the woman who raised chickens only to have them eaten by animals?  To me, that would have been a horribly upsetting experience that I wouldnt want brought up at a party.  To TLC, its just a "selling point" on why Jana is super resourceful, loving, and a good catch (so they can film her wedding).  

I'm betting that DerJIll and Joshly were present for this "party" as well, they were just at one of the other cabins they briefly referenced.  Someone had to watch all those littles while they filmed that scene and we know darn well it wasnt Michelle.

I think its kind of sad that a group of young adults couldnt go to the ski lodge, hang out at the bar, sing karaoke, or just drink hot chocolate around a fire pit with people their age.  Nope - they're in a cabin playing fake pictionary with a camera crew pretending to have fun.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Darn. The YouTube video's been taken down. I'm curious to see the other dresses they put Lauren in.

You asked about the other dresses, have MANY MANY pictures.

They had her try on 5 dresses and she tried on the one she ended up getting twice, with two different veils. In the TH she said she wanted crepe material, a fitted silhouette (essentially mermaid), no lace, lots of beads, modest, and short sleeved due to expected heat. So yeah, they mostly put her in puffy dresses and/or lace, and long sleeves.

Dress 1: Puffy skirt, lace, beads, mid-level neckline, unlined beaded below elbow-length sleeves. (3 pics in spoiler)

She chose Dress 4 with the cathedral veil, plus asked to have the sleeves modified to short/cap since it was for a summer wedding and she was worried about the heat, and have the back lined for modesty. (Note: She was wearing a white tank top under all of these dresses.)

That's exactly what I was thinking. There are so many fun things to do, even without alcohol involved, for people their age!

Can we play the "when did this happen" game?

Jana/JD's birthday is in January

Gideon was born in May

The Dillards were on a "mission trip" to Colorado Springs (about 2 hours away) in March/April

It was warm enough to ski without a jacket or gloves, but there is definitely a shot during pictionary when it was snowing.

 

Heres the thing, I cant find anywhere in Granby, Colorado that would still have skiing in then.  The largest places seem to be Granby Ranch and Winter Park and they would have been closed then. 

https://www.coloradoski.com/resort-season-dates

The only option appears to be the Arapahoe Ski Basin, which closed REALLY early june.

https://www.onthesnow.com/colorado/arapahoe-basin-ski-area/ski-resort.html

So, either Gideon was less than 2 weeks old when they drove him to Colorado, or there is some serious time shifting going on.  Regardless, the idea that this was a "birthday trip" is ridiculous.  What were they really up to in early June?

Ah, well that changes my analysis significantly!

They were there to support DerJill and their bullshit in March or April. 

This suggests Jessa was there in March

Correct, I was going to say I remember Jessa releasing Instagram videos of them at the lodge in Colorado back in mid-March. There were also sightings of the Duggars and the camera crew at the time. 

People have asked why so late in celebrating but they did that because the family was in Aus/NZ for nearly all of January. Playing the timeline game is so annoying freaking TLC. I don’t remember sightings in KY for Lauren’s dress shopping. When did they do that? April?

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
