The sound of wedding bells is getting closer and closer for Bachelor Nation couple, Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon. This wedding is a big deal in the Bachelor world because of its rocky beginning. After (literal) years of unrequited love, an unsuccessful stint on Bachelor in Paradise, and a perplexing friendship, Ashley finally got her guy. Despite the awkward beginning of their relationship, the wedding planning is luckily going smoothly, the couple told Life & Style.
Their engagement will last about a year and a half so the two can “enjoy” their “time as fiancés.” Jared explained, “Once we get married, we’re going to be husband and wife for the rest of our lives.” However, that doesn’t stop Ashley from jumping the gun a little bit. “I call him ‘husband’ a lot because it’s just, like, easier sometimes,” she gushed during the interview.
The wedding planning is really coming along. According to Ashley, they have the venue booked, a wedding planner, and she has her dresses (plural!). The former Bachelor contestant definitely loves getting all glammed up so its no surprise she would have a few looks on the big day. She recently posted a photo of herself trying on dresses at Kinsley James Couture Bridal in California and Kleinfeld Bridal in NYC, so you know she found some showstopping numbers.
As far as the vibe, it won’t be like your typical wedding. “Our wedding’s not going to be a party, it’s going to be a romantic experience,” Ashley explained. The couple said they are expecting around 180 guests and Ashley is even playing around with the idea of not allowing any phones at the ceremony or reception. The two don’t see eye-to-eye on that tiny detail, but the rest of it sounds like pretty smooth sailing. We’re sure they’ll figure it out.
We’ll keep an eye out for our invites!
