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."

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.
