There's probably not another couple from Bachelor nation that has embraced the life of post-reality-TV stars as much as Jared Haibon and Ashley Iaconetti have. The duo appeared on two seasons of Bachelor in Paradise, and three years later, they finally started dating and got engaged. But they're also very involved in the I community, with Ashley hosting a podcast with Ben Higgins and Jared hosting a dating podcast with Dean Unglert and Vanessa Grimaldi. So if there was any couple that we would expect to have a TV wedding, it would be them. Unfortunately, something might stand in their way!
"I think we're both down for [a TV wedding] but our caveat is that we want as many guests as we want and we don't want to be limited to that," Ash revealed on her Almost Famous IHeartRadio podcast. If you've ever seen a Bachelor wedding, you know that they can be pretty massive! Jade and Tanner's wedding was huge, for example. On the other hand, when Carly and Evan said "I do," it was just filled with other past contestants, current contestants the couple has never met, and their closest friends and family, about thirty guests total.

"So I think if we couldn't have it the way we imagined is the only reason we wouldn't do it," continued Ashley. But it seems like unless they want something insane, we should expect a special TV event sometime in the future. In case you're worried Ashley might change her mind, she reassured fans that, "We want it. We want it."
They wouldn't even have to look very far to find someone to officiate! Possibly the only person more notorious for loving being on TV in the Bachelor community is Nick Viall, a good friend to both Jared and Ashley. He said he would love to stand at the altar with them if they were into it. We're already buying rose and tissues, guys!
