Former Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. sure does love broadcasting his relationships on television. Remember when he broke off his engagement to current-Bachelorette Becca Kurfin on camera for the world to see? Now, the infamous Bachelor alum wants another on-screen special: a TV wedding to his now-fiancée, Lauren Burnham.

Just one month after proposing to Burnham (which also happened on TV), the reality star is pushing for a televised wedding ceremony. A source told E! News that the newly engaged couple are currently in the "planning stages," adding, "It's going to happen before the end of the year, if not sooner." Here's hoping Lauren at leasts resurrects Bibiana's wedding-worthy attire from Season 22.

Additionally, reports say that the couple have been "researching several venues" for a wedding stateside. "They are still waiting to get confirmation from ABC for the TV special," said the source, "and are heavily pushing for this... Nothing has been locked in yet until they get the green light from ABC."

Shortly after Luyendyk Jr. popped the question to Burnham, he and his bride-to-be sparked rumors that they were planning an elopement, you know, to get away from some of the negative media attention surrounding their engagement. (You brought that upon yourself, Arie!) But it seems that the two are now opting for publicizing yet another milestone in their relationship.

"Lauren and Arie are moving fast. They want everything to happen quickly and show the world how real their love is," the source added, saying the two are "settling into more of a normal, real life situation together. They have visited both sides of their families and have been spending majority of their time in Arizona. They are both attached at the hip and inseparable. They are completely in love and are really excited about their future."

So stock up on the rosé, because if these on-screen nuptials happen, you're going to need it.
