posted in: Entertainment News | 0

Bachelor wedding bells will soon be ringing! Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon sent Bachelor Nation fans into a frenzy when they announced their engagement in June after one month of dating and nearly three years of their on-again, off-again flirtation.

Iaconetti and Haibon, both 30, are in full wedding planning mode as they prepare to say their “I dos” in August 2019 in Rhode Island.

Scroll down to find out everything the duo — who first met in 2015 on Bachelor in Paradise season 2 — have said about their nuptials!

The Best Body

Iaconetti is working on her fitness to be in the best shape possible for her special day. The Bachelor: Winter Games alum is breaking a sweat with trainer Stephen Pasterino and following his P.volve method to tone up. “It’s the only workout I’ve never dreaded my entire life,” she exclusively told Us in November. “It’s so low-impact and you’re, like, ‘OK, I can feel this, but it’s not killing me’ and the results are amazing.”

The Guest List

After meeting Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher in September, Iaconetti and Haibon exclusively told Us that the A-listers will score an invite to their nuptials. “They’re very well-known to be best friends and now in a relationship. Very similar to Us,” Haibon told Us at the time. “It was cool seeing that friendship and report between the two of us.”

The Location and Venue

The ABC couple will tie the knot in Rhode Island in August 2019, but they’re enjoying a slow and steady planning process. “I think the next time we’ll really wedding plan in Rhode Island won’t be until, like, March. We’re far away,” Iaconetti exclusively told Us in November. Added Haibon: “Yeah, it’s slow. It’s amazing though. As soon as you pick the venue … you’ve got a few months to just do nothing.”

The Bridal Party

Iaconetti revealed to Us in November that she’s having ten bridesmaids and her sister, Lauren Iaconetti, will serve as maid of honor. While Haibon has yet to ask his best man to fulfill the duty, one thing remains certain: Bachelor in Paradise couple Jade Robert and Tanner Tolbert will have a role in the ceremony. “Jade and Tanner are our best couple friends from the show,” Iaconetti told Us in July. “I’m sure they’ll both be in our wedding. We’ve been friends for three years.”

The Color Scheme

It’s all in the details! “I’m thinking emerald,” Iaconetti exclusively shared with Us in November. “But I still haven’t decided.”

The Attire

“It’s got to be strapless, sweetheart. I think princess ball gown,” the bride-to-be dished to Us in July of her dress. “I can wear, like, a mermaid or a form-fitting dress at any event I go to, so I kind of want to do the ball gown, which I can’t do at any other time.” Meanwhile, Haibon may make a bold move and sport a white jacket while saying his vows. “My color scheme is probably going to be a black tux, white, is there another? Maybe I’ll wear a while jacket. Maybe I’ll mix it up a little bit, yeah. Spice it up,” he told Us in November.

The Cameras

Will cameras be rolling as Haibon and Iaconetti meet at the altar? “I think we’re both down for it, but our caveat is that we want as many guests as we want and we don’t want to have to be limited to that,” Iaconetti explained on an episode of her “Almost Famous” podcast in June. “So if we couldn’t have it the way we imagined, that’s the only reason we wouldn’t want to do it … We want it, we want it.”

The Future

“We talk about the future a lot,” the “Help! I Suck at Dating” podcast cohost exclusively gushed to Us in June. Iaconetti added that the pari want “two to three [kids], but we’ll decide after two.”

The Food

“The place that we picked out only has four places that you pick from catering. It’s not that big of a deal, because we were going back and forth. We kind of wanted, like, Shake Shack to cater it, but that’s not going to happen,” Haibon told Us at WE tv’s Real Love: Relationship Reality TV’s Past, Present & Future panel in December 2018. “It’s a very fancy place and her dad was, like, ‘You can’t have people unwrapping Shake Shack burgers in this beautiful venue.’”

The Videographer

“We’re picking out a videographer probably this week and we’re going to pick out a photographer by the end of this year,” Iaconetti revealed to Us at the WE TV event in December 2018. “Whenever we watch HGTV, our styles are very similar. Our aesthetics, we very much agree … We’re looking at videographers ands stuff and he’s, like, ‘That’s way too expensive for a video.’ And I’m, like, ‘It’s a video of our wedding.’”

The Vibe

Iaconetti told Us at the WE tv soiree in December 2018, “Our wedding’s not going to be a party, it’s going to be a romantic experience.” Added Haibon: “Yeah, that’s the way we want it. So it’s going to be not huge, but big. We’re having 180 people.”

The Song

In December 2018, The “I Don’t Get It” podcast host said fans “will be surprised” by what song she’s walking down the aisle to and teased that her first dance with Haibon will be during a Rob Thomas song.

The Theme

“Our theme is movies, like, romance movies,” Iaconetti told Us in March 2019. She added that there will be “blatantly obvious” references to Titanic, as well as When Harry Met Sally. The pair will also pay tribute to The Bachelor when they say, “I do.” The “Ben and Ashley I: Almost Famous” podcast cohost explained, “There will be roses here and there. I think there’s going to be one prominent rose that we have an idea for.”

The Music

The Bachelor in Paradise alums will have a “special musical guest” perform at their wedding. Iaconetti told Us in March 2019, “[It’s not the] Backstreet Boys … and it’s not Rob Thomas … but we’re both very big fans.”

The Groomsmen

Iaconetti revealed to Us Weekly in April 2019 that Nick Viall and Dean Unglert will be in Haibon’s groom party, while Tanner Tolbert will officiate — as long as it doesn’t interfere with the birth of his second child with wife Jade Ropert. “Depending when the baby is born, Tanner will officiate. Jade is in my bridal party if she can come, but that’s really up in the air,” she said.
