It's just been weeks since Jessa Duggar accepted Ben Seewald's marriage proposal – and started holding hands! – but the couple tell PEOPLE they are ready to wed.
"We have most of our planning done," Seewald, 19, tells PEOPLE. "When you're planning a wedding, you can make it complicated or make it simple, and we are trying to make ours simple. There are some things that have to be done right before the wedding, but for the most part, we're ready."
The stars of TLC's hit reality show 19 Kids & Counting, which airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m., will walk down the aisle on Nov. 1 – less than two months from now.
"We have the bridal party picked and the colors are done," says Jessa, 21. "The bridesmaids dresses are selected."

The morning sickness – more like all day sickness – is almost over.
Jill Dillard, 23, who announced her pregnancy exclusively to PEOPLE in August, is now happy to reveal that as she nears the end of her first trimester, she's finally beginning to feel better.
"The last couple of days I have had a little bit of a break from the craziness of morning sickness, more like all day sickness, and that has been a blessing," Jill, the daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, tells PEOPLE.
Jill – whose wedding to Derick Dillard, 25, will be featured on this season of TLC's hit reality show 19 Kids and Counting, airing Tuesdays at 9 p.m. – says that the support of her mother, Michelle, 47, has helped as she's struggled through nausea.

During a recent visit to her parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's home, Jill Dillard found there was no shortage of many of the things she'd grown up around: kids, meals, schoolwork, toys – and the ever-ready stash of her mother's home-pregnancy tests.
A few weeks into her marriage to husband Derick, Jill, 23, had already taken a few of her own (just in case!), and each had come back negative, but at her sisters' urging she gave one of Mom's a try.

Good news travels fast.
Though they'd only been married for a couple of months, Jill Dillard, 23, and husband Derick, 25, knew they couldn't keep their pregnancy news from their families for long.
The stars of TLC's hit reality show 19 Kids and Counting, whose new season starts Sept. 2 at 9 p.m., got busy spreading the word almost as soon as they saw the positive pregnancy test – one they swiped from Jill's mom, Michelle Duggar's, stash.

Jessa Duggar followed her family's advice on how to find the perfect mate and, for her, it worked! She got engaged to Ben Seewald on Thursday.
But as fans of TLC's hit reality show 19 Kids & Counting – whose new season launches Sept. 2 at 9 p.m. – know, the family's views of love and relationships go far beyond their courtship rules of no hand-holding until engagement, and no kissing until marriage.
The Duggar Rules of Relationships also cover how to "court," not "date," what to ask a prospective suitor before you start courting and how to keep an existing marriage healthy.
