Love can't wait! Joy-Anna Duggar and fiance Austin Forsyth move wedding to this weekend instead of original October date
Joy-Anna Duggar and fiance Austin Forsyth had originally planned to get hitched on October 28.
Fan site Duggar Family News Facebook page confirmed the news that the 19-year-old will be marrying sooner than expected.
Shotgun wedding? Joy-Anna Duggar and fiance Austin Forsyth had originally planned to get hitched on October 28, but have apparently moved up the date to this coming weekend
The couple's wedding registry on The Knot revealed the October date, but insiders say it has been moved up.
The Facebook page reports: 'I heard from a Duggar insider that Joy's wedding will be next week. I'm guessing that means Saturday, May 20th. It seems like the wedding will be held close to the Duggar compound since the source said guests will be at the compound before and after the wedding.
'That's all I know right now except I hope Joy gets up the nerve to run before then and live the life God gave her not the one arranged for her by her fruitcake dad,' the announcement continued.
The site later confirmed the posting, writing: 'It's been confirmed. The wedding is this Saturday.'
Chaperoned engagement: They rode horses together before getting engaged in March with family members present
Each date before marriage is chaperoned by another member of the family
Joy-Anna announced back in March she had become engaged to Austin Forsyth.
The 19 And Counting star said during a TLC video that she had two chaperones during the date that took place on a trail as they rode horses in their native Arkansas.
'We were going to go horseback riding and I decided to bring Johannah and Jennifer along because I knew that they would enjoy that, and they got to be the chaperones of this date,' she said in a TLC video.
Old fashioned: They can hold hands now that they are engaged
'It also made this day really, really special and then he asked me to marry him and I said 'Yes!' the 19-year-old gushed.
'Now that we are engaged, we are holding hands,' she squealed. 'So that's pretty special.'
'I knew we were ready for this next step because everything fell into place,' her new beau continued. 'The OK from Mr Duggar and my dad and just timing on the Lord.'

In laws: She then posed with Austin's parents for a group shot
'I feel like engagement is more special because we are committed to each other now. And we're just moving forward to the day that we get married, and it's exciting.'
Assuming she makes it down the aisle on Saturday, Joy-Anna will be the fifth Duggar child to tie the knot.
Eldest Josh, 29, was first to wed in 2008; he and wife Anna have four children.
Jill, 25, married Derick Dillard in 2014, before 24-year-old Jessa married Ben Seewald later that year.
In November, 23-year-old Jinger wed former soccer player Jeremy Vuolo.
