You may now kiss the bride ... awkwardly, because she's never experienced that before and neither has he! Hey, at least they're in it together, right?

Jill Duggar married Derick Dillard Saturday in Springdale, Ark., and their wedding also marked the duo's first kiss (though they have full-frontal hugged).

See the unforgettable moment below!

In keeping with Duggar family dating rules, the 19 Kids and Counting star, 23, decided to wait until marriage before even locking lips with her beloved Derick, 25.

Prior to saying "I do," the TLC lovebirds had never done more than hold hands and hug once, which they did only after they got engaged in April.

Even that constituted rule-breaking of sorts, but we've decided to let it slide.

"We're just really trying to keep our relationship focused not on the physical but on communication and continuing to learn more about each other," Jill explained.

Jill Duggar, the second daughter in the enormous Duggar family of 19 Kids & Counting fame, married Derick Dillard Saturday in front of (lots of) family and friends.

More than 1,000 people in all were on hand to witness Jill, 23, become the first daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar to tie the knot with fiance Derick, 25.

The wedding vows were sealed with a kiss - their first ever!

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard were greatly anticipating that.

"I think it is safer and makes it more special to wait to kiss until your wedding day," Jill said of saving her first kiss for marriage, as shown on her TLC show.

[UPDATE: See the married couple's first kiss photo below!]

"To save the physical side of your marriage for your wedding day and not going further than you should ... we both just want to have no regrets."

That was all good with Derick, who adds, "You can really get to know each other on every level without the physical part of it. I am the most blessed man to have Jill."

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard of TLC's 19 Kids & Counting are getting married soon, and the sweet couple's wedding registry is certainly eye-opening.

You have to give the gigantic Arkansas family credit, because if the Duggar wedding registry tells us anything, it's that they remain true to their roots.

Registering at Walmart, Bed, Bath & Beyond and Amazon? Pretty modest for bona fide reality TV stars, but you don't feed 19 kids with lavish spending.

Jill Duggar, who got engaged to Derick Dillard earlier this year, is looking for plenty of normal items, such as towels, pots and pans, bedding, and kitchen stuff.

Then it starts getting a little odd, though.

On the Amazon portion of their wish list, they're seeking gift cards to Taco Bell, Burger King, and Subway ... and for Froot Loops and Raisin Bran.

After 30 years and 19 kids, they are happier and more in love than ever.

Process that statement for a second as we ponder if it has ever been stated before, or whether it's true of many couples with a fraction of their brood.

Once you have, say, six children, how on earth do you find the energy and motivation to make kids 7-19, let alone make time for each other?

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar recently spoke with Today about nurturing their relationship, keeping the sexual sparks alive and other secrets to their lasting love.

Here are 7 tips the Duggars say are key to their happy marriage ...

Say yes to sex, even when you're tired!

The Duggar family is and its hit TLC show 19 Kids and Counting attract millions of viewers and millions of ad dollars to the network that made them stars.

But they've quietly become stars in their own right - quiet in the figurative, under-the-radar sense, not literally with 19 kids - throughout much of America.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are still working on that 20th kid.

The family gets its share of celebrity gossip coverage, especially lately, but not nearly as much as, for example, the Robertsons on Duck Dynasty.

The Duggars are a deeply conservative, religious people who save their first kiss before marriage, yet they've become a bona fide force of nature.

Even in a culture where a Kim Kardashian sex tape launched the so-called First Family of Reality TV, the polar opposite Duggars have thrived.

19 Kids and Counting has developed a very devoted fan base since it debuted in 2008, starting off strong and only growing stronger in ratings.

They even have a spinoff now. A Duggar Leaves Home, in which Amy Duggar goes to Nashville to pursue her singing dreams, kicked off Tuesday.

Mother of 19 Michelle Duggar is speaking out on the engagement of daughter Jill Duggar to Derick Dillard, as seen on TLC's 19 Kids & Counting.

Speaking out, even as the life-changing event left her at a loss for words.

As it was happening, she writes, "Jim Bob and I are saying to ourselves, "Oh, wow!" We're realizing our girl is going to start a home and her own family."

"That's a big deal, especially for dad."

"[Jim Bob] is so happy for Jill and he really appreciates Derick and who he is. We know Derick is going to make a great husband and, hopefully, father."

Derick Dillard abided by the Duggar family dating rules (or "courting" as they call it) and asked for permission to propose to Jill from Jim Bob Duggar.

Having pushed the envelope with a full-frontal hug at the airport, he even asked Jim Bob if it was okay if he held hands with Jill Duggar post-engagement.

Jessa Duggar's parents Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar love their Second Amendment, and it looks like the youngster is following in their footsteps.

Her "courting" of Ben Seewald has been a prominent story line on 19 Kids and Counting this season, but it's now taken a controversial twist.

Seewald posted a picture of Jessa Duggar holding what looks like an automatic rifle, resulting in a deluge of comments, both supportive and outraged:

Jessa Duggar, Gun

“My AWESOME girlfriend. #DontmesswithJessa,” Seewald wrote on Facebook.

One fan wrote, critically: “Wow, would Jesus carry that weapon?”

Another countered: “Only extremists think that weapons kill people ... a person has to pull the trigger. For the time being we have the right to bear arms!”

Her dad Jim Bob tells Radar Online he supports Jessa, stating that “We believe it is important for children to learn safety about guns and knives."

Jill Duggar thought she was just going for a stroll after a lunch date on Tuesday's season finale of 19 Kids & Counting on TLC. How very wrong she was.

Blissfully so, it turned out. Blissfully so.

She had no idea boyfriend Derick Dillard was getting ready to propose and had planned a surprise proposal including a serenade by country singer Walker Hayes.

The bride-to-be was taken aback.

Jill, the second oldest daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, and Derick listened as musicians hiding in the park came in to join the performance.

"Last minute, I was going over what I was going to say in my head," Dillard said as the big moment drew near. "I was just trying to play it cool."

Jill may have suspected something big was about to happen - "I'm like on the alert, basically, like, 'What's going on?'" - but she was still over the moon.

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting fame recently got engaged after a courtship that included a lot of skype and no frontal hugs.

Okay, they did break the courtship rules at least once.

Fortunately, we know how it works out in the end. By now, they're happily engaged and all set up with a Wal Mart wedding registry and everything.

Tonight, though, we get to see it unfold on TV! While the eldest Duggar daughters are out promoting their new book, Derick makes plans to pop the question.

After getting permission from Jim Bob Duggar to ask for Jill's hand in marriage, will he be able to pull off an intricate proposal without Jill catching on?

If this teaser released by TLC is any indication, we're not sure. Guy seems more than a little nervous about this and not exactly stealthy. At all.

Nice fella though. Clearly a nice fella. Watch the clip:

Good luck, D. Good luck.

The chemistry between 19 Kids & Counting star Jessa Duggar and her boyfriend, Ben Seewald, got a lot of attention on this week's episode of the TLC show.

While Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard, whose full-frontal hug and courtship rules violation got a lot of media attention, eyes were also on Jessa and Ben.

Specifically: Are they already following in Jill and Derick's footsteps?

The 21-year-old Duggar daughter recently started her own accounts on Twitter and Instagram, listing herself as “Jessa Seewald.” Yes, Seewald.

Does that mean she's already engaged - or even married - to Ben?

Jessa only joined social media so that she could interact with him, apparently, as the sweet duo have done nothing but post cute selfies together.
