Recap: Finding Joy's dress

In early May, Michelle and the girls are heading to Mount Sterling, Kentucky to find Joy's wedding dress. Jessa is bringing Ben and the boys. Jinger will meet up with the girls in Dallas. Joy says that the family is always late and it's weird for them to be early.
Since their November wedding, Jeremy and Jinger have not spent a night apart in six months. Jeremy thinks he will managed being away from his wife.
Austin meets up with Dwayne, whom is a family friend, at the house along with the boys to create the vaulted celling. Austin later meets up with Jim Bob, Kendra's father, and the brothers to go skeet shooting. Joe knows that it's a great chance to connect with her father. Pastor Caldwell believes that every father should have at least one or two guns.
Austin has taken notes to stay on Jim Bob's good side after seeing his shooting skills. He reveals that he and Joy have broken their curfew by talking along with doing their 3 second sidehug rule.
The girls and Seewalds arrive in Mount Sterling and have lunch before heading to the bridal shop where Renee has designed six dresses for her to try on. Austin is asked what he wants to see in the dress that she chooses and he just wants to see her walking down the aisle to him on their special day.
The first dress is fitted with white lace over tan fabric. Everyone agrees that the dress is beautiful however Joy wants another style. During the time in the dressing room, Joy is overwhelmed and ends up calling Austin. Austin encourages her and reminds her that she will look beautiful in anything.
    Option #2 is a flowy, white, polka dot dress. Joy likes everything but the polka dots. “I was so thankful for my sisters’ input,” says Joy, who decides that she wants more of an A-line cut.
    Option #3 is a similar fit but with sleeves and all-over lace. It is very similar to Jinger’s wedding gown.
    Option #4 is similar but with less lace and more satin.
Joy is changing and Grandma finds a dress that she thinks Joy will like because it is a skirt. The top is a little too revealing for the Duggars so Renee quickly changes the top and Joy loves the dress. Renee fits her with a veil and hands the flowers to Joy. Dress shopping is finished.
Joy returns to the group after changing. Everyone reflects on the memories and photos of Joy. Michelle reveals that they knew Joy's name before she was born. Joy ended up being sandwhiched between all the boys and she has lived up to her name.
Jana reveals that they all have a special personality and something about them that helps the family and when they get married and leave, it's missing so it is going to be hard to adjust.
Jana reveals that she is really going to miss her sister. Jenny ends up breaking down and crying since Jenny and Joy are very close.
Down in Central America, The Dillard family is getting ready to celebrate Israel's second birthday with helping Jill make his birthday cake. They end up decorating the cake with OSU orange icing.
