The sisters starred in the spinoff show ‘Counting On,’ and fans recently stumbled upon their wedding invitations.
In the beginning, Jill and Jessa were the focus of ‘Counting On,’ so the show was called ‘Jill and Jessa: Counting on.’ When Jill left the show in 2017, the show had to lose the first part of its title.
Just as the sisters got married in the same year, Jill and Jessa both had two sons within the first three years of their marriages.
What is the problem with these wedding invitations from going on six years ago, anyway?
Well, according to Showbiz Cheatsheet, fans have an issue with the font used on the invitations and the fact that Jim Bob’s name is even on the invitations.
A graphic designer even posted a thread on Reddit titling the thread with, ‘As a graphic designer, I am personally offended by these.’ Obviously, ‘these’ refers to Jessa and Jill’s wedding invitations.
On the thread, one person said, ‘I think it’s interesting that Michelle doesn’t get her name but the other mom’s do.’
Someone else noticed the fact that Michelle isn’t mentioned by name on the invites, saying, ‘I love how Ben’s and Derek’s mom were mentioned by name but Michelle was just Mrs Jim Bob. I swear these invites are the same as a parody of theme would be.
Someone else said, ‘Seeing jill way back in 2014 is crazy. she used to be the golden child, now she’s like the “rebel” of the family. pretty crazy.’
Another comment said, ‘Also, I know their weddings were close to one another’s – but they couldn’t even manage a font change?’
Someone else joked about the invites saying, ‘The font looks like it’s from some superhero movie so I’m reading it with my deep male voice and then hit the line jim bob.’
Another fan had a reason for the invitations looking like they do saying, ‘I recall that Duggars created these invitations using home computer software. So that’s why they look cheesy.’
To this comment about the home computer software, someone responded, ‘For $5-25, you can pay someone on Etsy to design a beautiful invitation that you print yourself. Seems like it would have been worth the money.’
Someone planning a wedding in 2020 said, ‘As someone in the middle of planning a wedding my eyes are rolling. Sure this was in 2014, so no minted expectations—but you could at least download different fonts back then. This looks like it was slapped together on MS paint.’
And last, but certainly not least, someone said, ‘So then date of Jill’s wedding is implied, but the time and place are a mystery. Jessa, on the other hand, says “1 o’clock in the afternoon”, which seems like the most awkward way possible to specify that time. Better choices include:
ONE O’CLOCK IN THE AFTERNOON (because we’re in all caps for some reason? But at least we don’t have an awkward numeral)
ONE O’CLOCK (because we can trust our guests to infer the wedding isn’t in the dead of night)
If you want to read the hundreds of comments, feel free. One thing is clear, fans HATE these invitations.’
