I think I must be in love with Kaitlyn Bristowe, because the things I like best about her are also the things that drive me the craziest. Like, say, her refusal to set a wedding date with Shawn Booth. But when Kaitlyn shares details about her ideal wedding, you best believe I'm gonna gobble them up. Part of why I'm obsessed with the couple is that they're doing their own thing with a nice long engagement and not responding to public pressure to tie the knot. As a result, Kaitlyn and Shawn's wedding updates have been as rare as a Bachelor episode sans tears lately, so I have to take advantage of any information that comes sneaking past her tightly-sealed lips. And by take advantage, I mean write a whole article about it.
Kaitlyn co-hosted a Galentine's Day Party at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles on Wednesday, alongside Wedding Paper Divas and celebrity wedding planner extraordinaire Mindy Weiss. Although I'm sad to report that she didn't reveal a date, she did drop some nuggets of information about her ideal ceremony, so listen up. She shared that her ideal time of year to get married would be in the fall, so keep your eyes peeled for later in 2017.
As a reminder, Shawn told People in August 2016 that he and Kaitlyn would hopefully start planning "by the end of the year," but that they also weren't in any rush:
We’re just so crazy busy and we’re enjoying being engaged. The more pressure, the more we’re like ‘Well, we’re not going to do it now!’ We’ll do it when the time is right.
Whenever that right time is, you can expect for Kaitlyn to sprinkle in details, like a destination wedding somewhere tropical, wedding colors like navy and gold, an open-backed lace dress, and probably a four-person bridal party consisting of her sister and her three best friends.
For now, that's all I can tell you about the big day, because it's all Kaitlyn has shared so far. Naturally, this makes me simultaneously love her more and be endlessly frustrated that I can't put this dream wedding of one of my favorite couples on my calendar yet. Not that I would. Ahem.
