Nearly one year after Jordan Rodgers proposed to JoJo Fletcher on The Bacherlorette admits she is not any closer to walking down the aisle. In an exclusive interview with Life & Style, JoJo, 26, reveals that she has yet to pick a wedding date.
“It’s all fun and amazing right now, so there’s no rush,” she said at the St. Ives Mixing Bar event in NYC. “When the timing is right, we will both know and it will be perfect.” Bachelor Nation fans are not going to be happy about this update — although JoJo wants to make it clear that does not mean there is trouble in paradise.
“That commitment is 100 percent still there,” she added. Jordan, 28, also confirmed that the couple was not ready to tie the knot, before adding that when they did, cameras most likely will not be invited.
“We’re enjoying this time of being engaged, continuing to date and court each other, and getting to know each other even more,” the former athlete 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 continued, “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.” You guys are killing us!
So while JoJo and Jordan’s wedding is still far off, they are not the only couple from the reality dating competition that is delaying their nuptials. Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth have still not married TWO years after their television proposal, and former Bachelor Nick Viall is also not in rush to make it official with Vanessa Grimaldi.
“We’ve known each other for less than a year now,” Nick explained to Life & Style. “The Bachelor Nation has a bit of a backlog with engaged couples, so there’s plenty [of] couples in line before us that have to tie the knot before we do.” At least we have Carly and Evan’s wedding on Bachelor in Paradise to look forward to.
