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.

Ben Seewald Moves in With the Duggars

Jessa Duggar's relationship with Ben Seewald is no longer long-distance, now that Ben has moved into the Duggars' guest house and started working for Jim Bob. 

The guesthouse is on the Duggars' property but is separate from the family's main house.

"He moved up here a few weeks ago," Jim Bob Duggar told PEOPLE Magazine. "It has been really good. He has been able to spend a lot more time with Jessa and our family."

Ben and Jessa are still committed to having at least one chaperone near them when they are together, but, like any couple, they face temptations. Jim Bob has set a curfew to help his 21-year-old daughter and her fiancé maintain their purity standards. 

"By midnight, every night, we need to make sure everybody is back in their place," Jim Bob told PEOPLE.

For the first year of his relationship with Jessa, Ben was living with his family in Hot Springs, Arkansas, a town four hours south of the Duggars, and only saw his girlfriend every two to four weeks.

"After Michelle and I were talking about it, we have so many projects to do that we need help for – everything from construction projects to keeping the grass mowed to putting roof on a building, paperwork and things like that – and we asked him if he would be interested in moving up here so that Jessa and his relationship could be really accelerated," Jim Bob told PEOPLE. "[Ben] was all for it, and his parents were happy about it."

Living on the same property is especially convenient for Jessa and Ben now that they are engaged and planning their wedding. Ben is in his second year of college and is taking online business courses while doing odd jobs for Jim Bob.

Watch the video below to get the full scoop on Ben's new living arrangements.

 Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald

Five months ago...

 Derick Dillard purchased Jill's engagement ring in Israel, but he and his mom, Cathy, 
visited a jeweler in Arkansas to have it resized

 Derick Dillard hired a country musician to write a song for Jill
and perform it on the day of their engagement

 When the song was finished, Derick got down on one knee...

 ...and presented the ring.

He asked Jill to marry him, and Jill said, "Yes, totally!"

 With only three months to plan her wedding, Jill had to start shopping 
for a wedding dress almost immediately

And here are some of Jill and Derick's engagement photos, taken by Jinger, the Duggar family photographer:
