Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth: Getting Married THIS WEEKEND?!

by at .  Updated at .

Last month, we reported that Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth would be tying the knot in October, on Joy-Anna's birthday.

The news came to us via an online wedding registry that was attributed to the 19-year-old Counting On star and her fiance.

It clearly identified the date, too ... but did they pull a fast one?

According to a new report, Joy-Anna and Austin are actually tying the knot much sooner than anyone, even those close to them, expected.

The Duggar Family News (Life is Not All Pickles and Hairspray) Facebook page claims the twosome will be tying the knot this weekend.

“I heard from a Duggar insider that Joy’s wedding will be next week,” the page's Deep Throat on the ground in Arkansas reports. 

“I’m guessing that means Saturday, May 20th.”

The post was later updated in the affirmative.

“It’s been confirmed," the sleuth added.

"The wedding is this Saturday.”

Pickles and Hairspray is generally a very reliable source for Duggar info, as well as an entertaining read for any interested observers.

The admins frequently deliver a healthy dose of sass along with the news, and this latest scoop was certainly no exception.

Reporting on the location of Joy-Anna's ceremony, P&H revealed:

"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."

Of course, any Duggar woman who fled her own wedding would be immediately branded a heretic and ostracized from the family.

Unless Joy wants to spend her remaining years wandering the local Wal-Mart in a dress of the shabbiest denim, we doubt that'll happen.

But oh, how we would love to see the look on Jim Bob's face.

Originally we thought that it was bizarre that these lovebirds were waiting so long to tie the knot, given how fast their courtship progressed.

After all, Joy-Anna and Austin's courtship ended in an engagement over the holidays, and Duggars don't waste valuable baby-making time.

So the revelation that the October wedding registry may have been a ploy to throw the Internet off their trail would explain quite a bit.

After the wedding, of course, the family will be soaking up all the press attention it can get, but fame is hard to control in 2017.

If other media outlets receive details in advance, it might be harder to ensure the whole thing remains a TLC exclusive.

No word on whether or not Joy-Anna is upset that she'll be forced to compete with Pippa Middleton's wedding for the attention of the tabloids and gossip sites.

We're guessing there will be attention enough to go around, though. After all, Arkansan religious zealots and British royals have different target audiences.

Typically. Apologizes if you're a Joy-Anna and Pippa fan. Nothing wrong with worshipping the ground either of those beauties walks on.

As always, you can watch Counting On online to relive Joy-Anna and Austin's road to the altar and wonder why is Jana still single?!
