How, exactly, does one pull off a Duggar-sized wedding?

That’s what we’ll find out on Tuesday’s episode of 19 Kids and Counting. We’ve already seen Josh, Jill and Jessa tie the knot on TLC’s hit show, but we’ve yet to see how they managed to deal with behind-the-scenes disasters as well as the thoughtful choices they made to incorporate even the family members who have died.

For Jill and Derick’s wedding, an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming episode reveals that they paid tribute to his late father, Rick, by incorporating his brisket recipe into the wedding feast. They also hung his police uniform at the church.

Derick’s mother, Cathy, who is battling cancer, “came around” on the day of the wedding, says Jill, 23. “I think she was ready for the wedding before we were,” adds Derick, 26. “I truly believe that the joy she has is good medicine for her.”

The couple married in June in front of more than 1,000 guests and recently welcomed to their first child, Israel David, whose birth will air on TLC on May 5 in advance of Mother’s Day.

This week, fans of TLC’s hit show 19 Kids and Counting can see a special message from Jill’s newly courting brother Josiah and his courtship partner Marjorie on the episode airing Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET.
