It's official: Amy Roloff's wedding is happening, and we couldn't be happier for her and fiancé Chris Marek, with whom she has been romantically involved for about four years. The two got engaged in September 2019, so fans have been waiting for the day the Little People, Big World star announced wedding details.
Here's what we know so far.
Where is Amy Roloff getting married?
Early in Season 8, Amy Roloff and her fiancé discovered that their dream wedding would actually be much more expensive than they had previously anticipated, leading the couple to explore new ways to cut costs. Luckily, Amy's ex-husband stepped in to save the day when he suggested that Amy and Chris get married on his property.
Although Amy previously expressed that she was toying with the idea of getting married at Roloff Farms, it appears that she has finally made her decision. In the June 29 episode of Little People, Big World, Amy says, "Chris and I have made the final decision on the wedding venue and we're getting married at Roloff Farms."
Amy says after she weighed her options, she ultimately decided on "Plan B," although it's unclear what her Plan A was. Nevertheless, it appears that Chris is just as happy with her decision as her ex-husband. Chris previously stated that his dream location for the wedding would be exact same spot where Amy's daughter Molly got married — which was at Roloff Farms.
With their latest announcement, the couple is one step closer to the altar, but in the episode, Amy also expresses her fears that her ex-husband will overstep his boundaries and ruin their big day.
When Chris asks Amy if she would prefer that he "deal with" Chris himself, she responds, "That's what I'm worried about having it at the farm. What are you going to get yourself into? I mean, it's OK to talk to him and all that — don't become best friends."
But Amy has, of course, always had her concerns. "I'm glad Matt offered it 'cause it is a beautiful setting. He said, 'There's no rules, no anything.' But there is that uncertainty where even though he said that, and I want to do something, and he's like, 'Well no, that's not gonna happen, Amy. I don't want that here.' Whatever. Probably be a little awkward, a little stressful," Amy said, which is understandable. And when you're relying on someone for such a huge decision, you can feel very stressed out.
If you follow Little People, Big World, then you know Amy sold her portion of the farm to Matt after their divorce. Since he paid her out an estimated $667,000 in 2019, Matt fully owns the property and has full say in how it's used. Obviously, this property holds a lot of sentimental value for Amy, so we can see why she'd want to get married there.
And yes, Matt and Caryn are invited to the wedding, Amy confirmed. She told Us Weekly, "It's not like they're not going to be invited," but it's unclear if Amy's ex wants to go. "We kind of already have the impression that it's not something that they're interested in going to," Chris said.
He added, "They're welcomed if they'd like to come. We don't want anyone coming to our wedding out of obligation. The wedding is supposed to be about good friends and close family. And I like Matt. I get along with him fine and Caryn. But we're not friends that hang out. We don't do things together ... They're welcomed if they'd like to come, but I don't want them to feel obligated."
Amy also said, "He's the father of my kids. I was married to him for a long time. He's the grandfather of my grandkids and stuff. They're more than welcome. But like Chris said, and I would totally agree, I just don't want to invite someone because we're inviting them."
What's Amy Roloff's wedding date?
Amy Roloff and Chris Marek will be getting married on Aug. 28, if all goes according to plan. "Aug. 28 it is," Amy said in a recent clip. "Set in stone," Chris added.
"It is set in stone. There's no going back now, babe," Amy said, playfully.
