Duggar Season Premiere Airs Tonight

The wait is over! New episodes of 19 Kids and Counting begin tonight. Tune in to TLC at 9PM ET PT/8PM CT for 19 Kids and Counting "Duggars & Mothers," an hour-long premiere in which Jill and her family start planning for her Duggar-sized wedding.

New episodes of 19 Kids and Counting will air through November. What's in store for the upcoming season?

Following Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard's exciting engagement finale on 19 Kids and Counting this spring, the new season picks up with the happy couple planning for their big day. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar start the emotional journey of giving away their first daughter in marriage, as Jill and Derick plan their rapidly approaching nuptials. From dress shopping to cake tasting, it's all hands on deck as the engaged pair prepare to say their "I dos" in front of more than 1,000 of their closest friends and family. But this happy occasion is bittersweet as the family starts to realize what giving away Jill will mean for their close-knit clan.

Also this season, Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald continue to grow closer, as their courtship takes an unexpected turn when Ben makes a move to live closer to Jessa. Jim Bob and Michelle celebrate 30 years of marriage as Jill and Derick prepare their new home together with the help of the family. The newly engaged couple also tends to Derick's mom, Cathy, as she bravely battles cancer. And after their first year in Washington, D.C., Josh and Anna Duggar

and their three kids decide it may be time to make a few changes in their own growing family.

This season, TLC's 19 Kids and Counting will celebrate its 150th episode. Including the five original specials and seasons of 17 Kids and Counting and 18 Kids and Counting, the Duggars have starred in more than 200 episodes.

Planning for the Next Duggar Wedding

Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are in the thick of wedding planning. Their guest list is complete, and the couple drove to Bed, Bath, and Beyond yesterday to finish their gift registry.

"The guest list is pretty big, but not as big as my sister's," Jessa Duggar told ABC News. "My list is a little smaller [than Jill's was], but then Ben’s guest list is bigger Derick's. It will be another Duggar-sized wedding!"

Jill (Duggar) and Derick Dillard invited approximately 3,000 guests to their wedding and ended up with a crowd of around 1,500.

Jessa is following in the footsteps of her siblings Josh and Jill, who tied the knot before her, by saving her first kiss for the altar.

"We’re really looking forward to the first kiss!" Jessa ABC News. "We're talking about it -- what if we miss or mess up? We're gonna have to plan this out or something!" 

Jessa and Ben plan to reuse Jill and Derick's decorations and flower girl dresses, as they hope to keep their wedding as cost-effective as possible so they can splurge on their honeymoon.

"We’re gonna go really simple with a lot of our food and even flowers and that type of stuff," Jessa told ABC News. "People spend so much on flowers, it’s outrageous! I'll go to the grocery and buy flowers! I don’t know how many flowers we'll have in nature if it's cold outside but I was like, 'How about we just go pick [some]?'" 

The couple has chosen a wedding date but has not announced it to the public. They have hinted that it will be sometime this fall or winter. The wedding and part of the honeymoon will air on TLC's 19 Kids and Counting.

Duggars to Speak in D.C.

In four weeks, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar will travel to Washington D.C. to speak at the seventh annual Values Voter Summit, a conference that showcases the nation's leading conservative voices. The event takes place from September 26th-28th at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, 2500 Calvert Street Northwest, in Washington D.C.

Video Sneak Peek: Wedding Planning

In this video preview of the upcoming season of 19 Kids and Counting, Jill and Derick and Jill's mom and sisters meet with three wedding coordinators, who also happen to be friends of the Duggars.

Surrounded by nine women trying to plan a wedding, Derick says he feels "really outnumbered." But according to 14-year-old Jason Duggar, that is very normal.

"I think the groom should be like, five percent involved and just like, 95 percent agreed," says Jason.
