How did you celebrate Cinco de Mayo yesterday? Did you enjoy some delicious food and perhaps a margarita or three? I'll tell you what I didn't do. I didn't get invited to McIntyre, Georgia to see Mama June Shannon walk down the aisle to an awaiting Sugar Bear, and that makes me terribly sad…but happy for them. #conflicted
While there is no official word as to whether Alana Thompson's parents actually got married or if it was just a commitment ceremony, the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo family celebrated in a big way…complete with camouflage, barbeque, and hopefully lots of 'sketti. Not surprisingly, TLC cameras were on hand to capture the exciting event.

Speaking to People, June shares, "The day was very special mostly because my girls were able to take part in it. I felt like it was important for them to see this moment and celebrate my love for Sugar Bear."
Just because the family is now an international sensation doesn't mean that June went all out with her budget. The coupon queen has often surprised fans by not splurging on anything with their new found riches. The family continues to live in the same modest home, and June has set up trust funds for each of her daughters. June reveals, "My sister baked the cake, and we spent most of the money on barbecue. 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!"
June also reveals her secret to a healthy relationship, advising, "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."
She adds, "I give this advice to my daughters because I always want them to be themselves and surround themselves with people who love them for them." You certainly can't argue that point, and this is precisely why I adore this family so much. Check out some pictures of the big day below!
