LITTLE People, Big World’s Amy Roloff is planning to tie the knot at ex Matt’s farm after private discussions, a source has exclusively told The Sun.
The 56-year-old reality star, who is engaged to fiancé Chris Marek, was initially against the idea of having a wedding at Roloff Farms after her divorce from Matt.

Amy recently sold her land on the farm to her ex Matt, who now owns all 110-acres
Fans described the season premiere of the TLC show as “cringe” as her ex insisted she should consider the 110-acre farm as a possible wedding venue – after pushing back their big day due to the pandemic.
But now a source has exclusively told The Sun she is fully on board, and feels it would be an easy option for her and Chris, even calling a truce with Matt’s girlfriend, Caryn Chandler.
The insider said: “Amy and Chris are now planning to have the wedding at the farm, and it will be in three months, things are coming together.
“It was Matt’s idea initially and Caryn went along with it because they are trying to keep things cordial between them all.

“The reason Amy didn’t want to have it at the farm at first is because of the emotional history there, and she didn’t know if everyone was on the same page yet.
“Caryn isn’t a huge fan of Amy, she feels they are more acquaintances than friends, but she just wants Matt and the family to be happy and for everyone to move on.”
The source added that the big day will be televised for the show, and guests will be tested for Covid beforehand to make sure they’re safe, adding: “There are strict health and safety regulations.”
An insider previously told The Sun Matt and Caryn hadn’t yet received their invite for the wedding, but it’s now been revealed this is because they were still struggling with a wedding venue.

The source explained: “Things are a lot more amicable between the two couples and they’ve been spending time together.
“They just want to be mature and move on with their lives for the sake of their kids, but that’s not to say there won’t be disagreements in the future, as everyone knows what Amy and Matt are like.”
The Sun reached out to TLC for comment, but did not hear back.

As the couple arrived, they brought wine an a custom step-stool from Matt’s business as a housewarming present.
The foursome went to drink wine in the backyard when long awkward silences occurred.
Caryn lightened the mood as she asked the pair what their latest wedding plans are.
Chris chimed in, saying: “Well, you know, it’s talking about all these cancellations, it’s… it’s really about finding a venue first.”

“We think you should do it at the farm,” Matt shockingly said with a smile.
However, Amy appeared confused as she scratched her head while Chris simply leaned forward in his chair – both remaining quiet.
They both seemed surprised and as Chris asked, “Really?” Matt repeatedly insisted they use his farm.
“Absolutely,” Caryn agreed.
Following further awkward silence, Matt added: “I mean that, I mean I didn’t just spontaneous, we thought about it, you know. If you want to.”

Amy continued to appear upset and responded: “Yeah, well I don’t know about that.”
Chris, 55, meanwhile said that he was “very open” to the idea.
As Amy continued to appear hesitant, Matt pushed further, saying: “We’ve been adamant about this since day one.”
“I’m not sure about that,” Amy said again.
Fans were just as unsure as the family matriarch, with one exclaiming: “Nooooooooooo they should NOT get married on the farm!”

“Amy looked like she was about to kill both Matt and Chris just now over the, “have the wedding at the farm” comment,” another wrote.
One more tweeted: “Noooo. Don’t get married at the farm. It’s a new beginning, no need for bittersweet memories.”
“That was kind of weird & nice Matt told Amy & Chris could have their wedding on the farm,” a fourth said.
But the second episode of the new series, Amy seemed to be coming around to the idea, telling unsure friends it would be a good “business deal.”
She was recently photographed enjoying her bachelorette party in Palm Springs, California with friends, sipping cocktails, reading on a sun-lounger and swimming.
Amy, along with her good pals Lisa and Debi, checked into the swanky ‘Santa Inez’ Hacienda that costs over $600 per night, according to Daily Mail.
