Going to the chapel and they’re going to get married... or something like it.

Honey Boo Boo’s parents, June “Mama” Shannon and Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson set tradition aside in favor of romance for their weekend wedding in Georgia.

While the pair, who have one child, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, together, won’t clarify if their ceremony was a vow of their fidelity or legally binding union, the pair sure did get decked out on Sunday. June, in a camouflage dress, declared her love for Mike, the father of her youngest daughter.

"The day was very special mostly because my girls were able to take part in it," June told People. "I felt like it was important for them to see this moment and celebrate my love for Sugar Bear."  

While Honey Boo Boo was dressed to the nines in a floor-length orange and pink gown, the rest of the wedding was low-key, with June’s sister baking the cake and the rest of the budget going toward food for the guests.

“We stayed true to our roots and made the focus on the family and my commitment to Sugar Bear. You can definitely plan an event on a budget!"

 

As for her understanding of when it was the right time to get hitched, June offered up this piece of advice: "Never settle for a man who doesn't treat you right. If a guy doesn't love everything about you, move on! There are plenty of other fish in the sea."
