Bachelor Nation is going to have to wait a bit longer for a wedding. Former Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher just revealed she is in no rush to marry Jordan Rodgers. Sigh. “The commitment is 100 percent there; we’re just enjoying being engaged," she told In Touch.
However, that does not mean she doesn't think about her big day. “I have so many different ideas,” she said of her dream wedding, adding she has a "scattered" Pinterest board of ideas. "I could see myself getting married on a beach, or in the country. I’m really into the rustic look right now."
Earlier this summer, fans were concerned there was trouble in paradise when the couple briefly unfollowed each other on social media. JoJo and Jordan quickly added each other again on Instagram and Twitter, but not before an eagle-eyed reddit user noticed the cryptic move on June 5.
"JoJo and Jordan unfollowed each other only to refollow each other again a few hrs later," bachgirl wrote on the discussion website. "Another break up in the midst?" Other commenters chimed in defending the pair, with one fan writing, "I hope they're not breaking up lol, just when I had gotten over her season enough to root for them!"
It does look like JoJo and Jordan did briefly unfollow each other, with both their names now on the top of their respective "following" lists on social media — indicating a recent addition. But is this the reason the reality stars are in no rush to tie the knot? Jordan also agreed that the couple was not walking down the aisle anytime soon — and took it one step further by turning down a TV wedding.

"We're enjoying this time of being engaged, continuing to date and court each other, and getting to know each other even more," Jordan told The Hollywood Reporter. "And then when the time is right, we're absolutely going to sit down and start planning that. But we're definitely taking our time."
He went on to explain why they won't have a TV wedding unlike other Bachelor alums, adding, "There's a distinct intimacy and privacy and it's a very special moment with family and friends, and I wouldn't want anything to tarnish that or to take away from that." On a happier note, the couple, who met and fell in love on Season 12 of ABC’s hit series, recently celebrated their one-year anniversary and shared "heartfelt" tributes to their love.
JoJo posted the sweetest photo and video collage that documented the first year of their relationship — from the very first moment they met during limo introductions at the Bachelor mansion to doing the mundane, everyday things that a relationship entails like shopping for home décor — and it was set to country singer Brett Eldredge’s “Drunk on Your Love.”
“One year with you, the 26-year-old captioned the collage. “I love this crazy, beautiful, ridiculous life we have together.” Not to be outdone, her fiancé Jordan, 28, also took to Instagram to celebrate reaching such an exciting milestone in their relationship. The sports commentator shared an adorable photo of the couple kissing on the beach and wrote, “One year ago today, and even more my best friend every single day.”
In the meantime, like the other Bachelor couples that are still together, we'll be keeping our eyes on JoJo and Jordan. Last year, sources revealed to Life & Style that they duo is faking their romance for fame and money, with branding expert David Johnson estimating that they could earn as much as $10 million in the next year.
"She and Jordan could potentially be the highest-paid couple from the franchise, but they have to act now while the iron is hot," he said. "They've agreed to stay together for at least a year and transform their relationship into a business deal," another source added. "Endorsement deals are already coming their way, and JoJo and Jordan are going to milk it while they can."
