This hasn't been the best couple of months for Bachelor Nation. Last season's Bachelor Nick Viall and his fiancé Vanessa Grimaldi called it quits this summer, dashing our dreams of a televised wedding (with Chris Harrison officiating, of course). But it sounds like things are turning around for fans of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe and her hubby-to-be Shawn Booth are teasing the possibility of a Las Vegas elopement—soon!
Sure, we would prefer to watch Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth tie the knot in a big, televised ceremony with all the trimmings, but after the Viall-Grimaldi split, we need a Bachelor Nation wedding, y'all. And it sounds like we may be getting one soon. It just might be much more low-key than the one we were expecting from this Bachelorette couple. No biggie, right?
Bristowe and Booth recently teased the possibility of an elopement when People magazine asked the engaged pair if they had finally set a date for their nuptials. "Maybe we already got married and nobody knows yet," Booth joked.
"We actually have a trip planned in a little while for [Las] Vegas," piped in Bristowe. "So it might be in the near future!" OMG!
So when can fans of The Bachelorette expect to spot photos of this famous couple's secret nuptials? "October or November-ish," said Bristowe. Make sure to mark your calendars!
Of course Bristowe and Booth could just be joking, but, as People points out, this wouldn't be the first time the couple mentioned ditching all the pomp and circumstance and eloping. "I always pictured myself having a destination wedding," Bristowe told the mag back in 2015. "I am so low-maintenance—I don’t want to pick out flowers or colors, I don’t care!"
"Every time I talk to any of my girlfriends that have gotten married they always say it’s the most stressful thing they’ve ever done for their relationship," she continued. "I’m not a planner either, so I’m like, 'That sounds terrible!' Why would I get excited to do that?"
Hmm... Maybe they weren't joking!
