Bachelorette couple Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo have picked a wedding date!
The 33-year-old opened up to People and revealed they are officially tying the knot this summer after getting engaged in 2017.
“We have a date, we just haven’t officially released it. It will be a destination wedding and it will be toward the end of summer, that’s the biggest hint that I can give,” she shared.
“We’re excited, and now I have to hurry up because it’s just six months away. I have to start picking out a dress. I won’t have bridesmaids, but now we’re getting the list.”
She continued, “I wanted 50 people, and it’s already at 150, so it’s bigger than I would like for it to be, but that’s okay.”
Despite initially wanting a very small wedding, Rachel is looking forward to combining both of their backgrounds into a gorgeous ceremony.
“Bryan is Colombian, I’m black, and it is very important that the wedding reflects both of that, even into the reception. I want to bring some Colombian traditions,” she explained.
“A lot of his family from Colombia will be there, because the wedding will be at a location much closer to Colombia. My vision is to bring two cultures together.”
She continued, “This is two families coming together, and that is the one thing that I am a stickler to: I want that music to be represented, I want those traditions, and whatever else his mother-in-law tells me is part of the tradition that is part of the culture to be there.”
After falling in love on television, the former Bachelor star can’t wait to share their special moment with those closest to them.
“I have found love in a very untraditional way and we want to share our journey with people. And so that’s why it has become bigger than I would like, but it is a beautiful thing.”
