Some couples go all out for Valentine’s Day with a big fancy dinner, all the chocolate in the world, and presents galore. Others, like JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers of The Bachelorette, are perfectly content with a quiet night in.
“For us, Valentine’s Day is low-key,” Rodgers told People magazine. “We’ve done the nice dinner, but I think for us, the best thing usually is just a chill night.”
This year, the couple is planning a quiet night in at their Dallas, Texas, home. “We’ll probably make dinner and watch a movie or something,” Rodgers said. “Her love language is words, so if I can do something that is just thoughtful—she doesn’t need a big gift or anything. She’s great. She just wants, like any girl, to feel appreciated and hear how you feel about them. So I always do something like that.”
A low-key Valentine’s Day is a bit surprising, considering that this couple got engaged in the most high-key way possible—on Season 12 of The Bachelorette. But their private night in couldn’t sound sweeter. And, keeping aligned with their private date nights, their wedding day will most likely also be an intimate affair. Although the two have yet to set a date, their big day probably (and sadly) won’t be televised.
“There’s a distinct intimacy and privacy, and it’s a very special moment with family and friends, and I wouldn’t want anything to tarnish that or take away from that,” Rodgers previously told the Hollywood Reporter. “It’s a time that I want to be able to honor my fiancée and soon-to-be wife and her family, and I want it to be ours. I want us to run the show and make sure it’s always what we imagined. If there’s a way to do that and include fans, great. But that wouldn’t be my first wish.”
Despite his penchant for the sweet and simple, Rodgers still knows how to spice things up. There’s a good chance that his attire for his and Fletcher’s at-home V-Day dinner might be just a pair of red boxers! Rodgers recently teamed up with Captain Morgan to model their Captain’s Pose Pants boxer briefs! Fletcher won’t be able to resist.
