LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- You’d better redneckognize — Mama June and Sugar Bear ain’t gonna be livin’ in sin no more!
The couple (real names June Shannon and Mike Thompson) – parents to 7-year-old Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson — are getting married on Sunday, nine years after they initially met in an online chat room.
According to a wedding invitation obtained by TMZ, Mama June and Sugar Bear will tie the knot in McIntyre, Georgia, and the blessed event will be filmed (most likely to be shown on the family’s TLC reality show, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”).
Wedding attendees were warned, “no cell phones, cameras, or outside video taping will be allowed.”
Additionally, TMZ reports wedding guests were asked to arrive in “full redneck attire” – specifically hot pink or camouflage patterns.
