Pop the rosé! Rachel Lindsay just announced that she knows when she wants to tie the knot—and has revealed a few more details about her big day, too. On Monday, Lindsay spoke to Entertainment Tonight about her relationship and all her plans for the coming year. She told the publication that in addition to a spring wedding, she wants to start a family with fiancé Bryan Abasolo—pronto.
"Yes, ideally—I wanted a winter wedding," Lindsay shared. "I wanted it in December, but as it's getting closer and plans haven't been put in place, it's looking more next year, the spring, because I want to have kids. I really want to start next year. I want more stability. We've been traveling so much and I want to create this family unit and a home for us. We've been having a great time, traveling, we live together, so we've already done the things, 'Oh, I'll wait two years once I get married'—we're already doing that.
So, it's like, why wait?! Let's have kids!"
The reality star also noted that staying out of the spotlight has helped strengthen her and her fiancé's relationship, despite the franchise's not-so-stellar relationship retention rate. "I think you have to take a step back. A lot of people asked me, 'Are you going to do Dancing With the Stars?'—for me that wasn't even a question because I wanted to build a foundation away from cameras, just the two of us," she explained. "It helped that Bryan moved to Dallas and Dallas isn't a hot spot for media, so it's really great.
We traveled together, spent time visiting each other's families—did real-life couple things, things you do in the real world!"
The bride told ET that if they choose to have a televised wedding, they'll likely opt for a Dallas or California venue. If it isn't televised, Lindsay said they would probably opt for a destination wedding, potentially in Colombia.
"I definitely want a lot of flowers," Lindsay also shared of her wedding-day vision. "I'm more big on the reception than the actual wedding. I don't want it to be that long—short and sweet! I want to write our own vows, but also say traditional vows. The reception—just good music, good food! I'll be on the dance floor the entire time."
