Counting On Recap: Wedding Planning is Anything But Joy

by at .

With her big day fast approaching, Joy-Anna Duggar was in prime wedding planning mode last night on Counting On Season 5 Episode 2.

The teenage bride-to-be hit up string of stores with the aim of finding the perfect dress - and tasted wedding cakes for good measure.

If you watch Counting On online, you know that courtships, engagements, weddings, pregnancies and babies are a big part of the show.

Okay, they're the entire show.

That being said, wedding planning is not all it's cracked up to be, in Tontitown or anywhere, as Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth discovered.

Joy called the planning process “overrated” during her boring cake tasting, where Austin looked like he might slip into a coma.

“I don’t know, I don’t care!” Joy said at one point when Austin asked which she liked best. Closest they'll ever come to a fight.

It's a tough thing to go through, being pregnant before a shotgun wedding and all. (Kidding ... but only mostly kidding, right?)

In all seriousness, worrying about bridesmaids' dresses, cake testings, and wedding dress shopping can sure make one's head spin.

Not to mention home renovations.

Austin said that if their house wasn’t finished - they were fixing it up at this time - before the wedding, he “didn’t know” what they'd do.

Seriously, where do you put the baby she's already carrying but you're not telling people about until the fast-tracked nuptials are over?

Kidding again. Mostly, again.

“As long as I get to marry him, I can live anywhere,” Joy said, downplaying concerns about the house and looking at what truly matters.

She is very sweet. Almost as sweet as that wedding cake probably tastes ... not that she was particularly enthused about any of that.

“What do you want? It’s your cake,” Austin said to his indecisive future wife, who couldn't make up her mind, but responded, “It’s OUR cake.”

That's news to Mr. Forsyth.

Picking out bridesmaids dresses was not any easier, though Joy's mother Michelle and some of her older sisters helped out on that.

Jessa Duggar could tell Joy was not enjoying the process, and decided to take on some of the responsibility so she wouldn't be overwhelmed.

“I don’t even know how to do this stuff,” Joy said, getting emotional as she confided in her older sister. “That’s why I need your help.”

Fortunately, we know all is right with the world. Joy-Anna, Austin and their unborn baby (maybe) walked down the aisle May 26.

#blessed.
