Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth have played a joke on the fans who follow the Duggar family and their every move. Ever since it was announced that the two were officially engaged, fans have been dying to know if they set a date. Usually the weddings aren't set too far in advance when it comes to the Duggar girls. It has been assumed a wedding would happen this year, but the date had not been discussed.

Rumors have been circulating for a few weeks with different dates for the Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth wedding. According to, the official date for the wedding is October 28th, 2017.

Everyone immediately got excited about the date, but there was something they failed to realize.

The joke is on fans

While the date is a valid one, it is the date of Joy-Anna Duggar's birth not their wedding. It is the day she will turn 20 and also the date they used for their wedding registry. Duggar and Austin Forsyth have already set up their wedding registry, which is available to the public on Amazon. The couple used her birthday as the date to keep their actual wedding day a secret. They even posted a special note on the registry that indicated their official date has not yet been announced. A super fan found the registry and has passed it around social media. The couple left it public so that fans could gift them if they choose.

Critics have come out and slammed the young couple for making their list public and expecting the fans to chip in to help them build a life together. There have only been a few things bought from the list, but some of the things have raised questions. Some of the items are camping-related and there are some hiking boots. Interesting choices for some.

Date is to be announced

Fans likely won't get word about the wedding until the day has arrived. Jinger Duggar's wedding was leaked the night before she walked down the aisle. It is clear that Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth have chosen a date for 2017, and it could be much closer than anyone knows.
