    Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary over the weekend and the 19 Kids and Counting star mother is opening up about her very special day back in 1984 on her blog.

    Michelle explained that her wedding "was sweet and simple" and that they "actually got married in the hallway" of a gymnasium as their local church was being built at the time.

    "We did the exact same thing when we renewed our vows 25 years later," she added on her website.

    "I wanted to do as much as I could myself as a way to save money and keep the expenses reasonable. We didn't buy flowers and barely even decorated the hall," Michelle wrote when describing her nuptials.

    "I even made my own bouquet using fake flowers so I could keep them to decorate my home with later…For the wedding cake, I made it myself and froze it. Everything we did for our wedding was so inexpensive, but perfect for us. We wanted to spend our money on our honeymoon, which was our first time to be alone together."

    The TLC star also saved money with one major wedding expense: a dress.

    "Another special touch was wearing Jim Bob's mother's wedding dress as my dress."

    The Duggar children posted a sweet message to their parents along with a collage of their wedding day on Instagram Saturday.

    The captioned read, "Happy 30th anniversary to the most amazing parents ever! More in love today than ever! And such a great example for all of us kids!"
