“Being here in the bridal suite while all the girls are getting ready, definitely takes me back to my wedding day,” says big sister Jessa (Duggar) Seewald. “It makes me reminisce about all the sweet memories just hours before my own wedding. I know the excitement that Joy is experiencing right now; the anticipation. It’s a big, big day.”
“Joy is just staying relaxed, she’s not getting worked up,” the 24-year-old continues. “She’s just focusing on one thing at a time and getting ready … before we know it, the wedding will be here.”

“It really does seem like it was just yesterday that Jeremy and I were walking down the aisle and about to get married,” she says. “I just can’t believe it’s Joy’s time to kiss. I still remember her as the little girl that I would help out with things … it’s crazy that it’s her wedding day, but we’re so excited for her.”
Luckily, for Joy, the nerves hadn’t kicked in yet, but she is a bit worried about remembering her vows.
“I’m not really nervous yet,” she admitted. “I think everybody has been doing everything for me, so I just need to make sure that I read my vows off with clear words, but other than that it’s not a big deal.”
“It probably won’t hit me, until right before I walk down the aisle,” Joy tells her sisters.
