Wedding bells will soon be ringing for Kaitlyn Bristowe, who informed Entertainment Tonight of their upcoming nuptials.
“I thought Jason [Tartick], we need to lock up a wedding planner because when I’m gone I won’t be able to do much and I’m not too picky about things,” the Dancing With the Stars winner said ahead of her DWTS tour. “I’ll let the wedding planner do his thing as long as I trust him, so hopefully it’ll be easier.”
As she told the outlet, they plan to get married within the year. “We think we’re going to do it in Nashville,” the former Bachelorette told the outlet. “October 2022.”
The couple, who live in Nashville, confirmed their relationship in January 2019. They got engaged in May 2021.
The Bachelor Nation couple are planning to make it big for their big day. The 36-year-old said: “I always wanted to be small but Jason convinced me to be big. But then: “Mr. Finance,’ Jason said, budgeting, and he was like, ‘Maybe we’re going down?’”
Tartick referenced his big wedding dreams while speaking to Us Weekly in May 2021.
“From the day I started thinking about my wedding, one thing I said was that I would love a DJ [and] a live band,” the 33-year-old told the publication. “I want a big celebration; I want to enjoy and have a good time. I want to dance all night with the ‘Dancing With the Stars’ champion and have so much fun.”
His fiancée revealed that she wants to be full of glamor for her wedding.
During her appearance on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast in June 2021, Bristowe revealed that she “wants a ‘Great Gatsby’ — like a black tie event, very glamorous.”
Though she noted that it’s “the opposite of what I wanted. Four years ago I would have thought I wanted bohemian, I wanted farm style. I just change my mind.”
Tartick suggested where the pair first met – on Bristowe’s Off the Vine podcast. The idea came from her mother.
According to Us Weekly, he said, “She said, ‘You know, you met on the podcast.’ I thought: ‘Ah!’ I proposed to her on the podcast. She had no idea!”
Entertainment Tonight reported that Bristowe was told she was interviewing a “special surprise guest.”
She went on to explain, “Jason says, ‘Kaitlyn, we don’t do a podcast.’ And I say, ‘You forgot to press record, didn’t you!’ He said, ‘No, that’s different,’ and he stood up and I saw him pull a ring box out of the drawer.”
“I tried to be present but I was so overwhelmed and so embarrassed because I was wearing a t-shirt that said ‘tequila for breakfast,'” Bristowe told the outlet. “I thought, ‘This feels very branded, but also very inappropriate!'”
