Arie Luyendyk Jr. and his fiancee Lauren Burnham have made it clear that they intend to get married ASAP.
But though they’ve spoken about possibilities for their upcoming wedding, they haven’t announced any concrete plans.
Now, thanks to one fan’s snooping, the Bachelor Nation knows some details. Including a wedding date.
Reddit may be infamous as a cesspool for incels and people with horrifying political views, but it’s mostly a gathering place for people with shared interests.
For example, fans who are really, really devoted to The Bachelor. Members of the Bachelor Nation who don’t just watch the show, but who actively engage in the online community.
Some of those fans dig up information … and then these junior detectives share it with the world.
One cyber-sleuth found what appears to be a wedding registry on The Knot for Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham’s wedding.
Yes, it includes the date.
Take a look:
Note the date — June 28th.
That’s not even three months from now.
While this isn’t confirmed through an official announcement just yet, this was found through a link in Lauren’s old registry from her previous engagement.
So it appears to be legit.
What’s more, it totally fits with what we’ve heard about their wedding intentions.
For starters, June 28th certainly qualifies as a summer wedding, which is what Lauren … and Lauren’s mother … have talked about in interviews.
Admittedly, that’s only a week into the summer, as this year’s Summer Solstice is June 21.
But in Arizona — pretty much anywhere in Arizona — it will feel like summer is already in full force.
Additionally, Lauren and Arie have made it clear that they plan to tie the knot soon.
Nothing says soon quite like not even four months after the world saw their proposal.
Fans can speculate about why Lauren might be eager to get married. She might, for example, worry that Arie will dump her like he dumped Becca and go back for someone else.
We’ve already seen Arie’s post-Bachelor DMs, because Bekah Martinez is a delight and has zero chill.
Arie, in turn, may have his own reasons for racing to the altar.
Perhaps he’s just going along with his fiancee’s wishes.
Or maybe he’s really just that eager to seal the deal now that he’s now, allegedly, found love.
But some can’t help but wonder if he’s just hoping to capitalize on his fame (or infamy) before it fades. Which would include a TV wedding.
It sounds like Arie and Lauren want a TV wedding almost as much as Lauren’s parents do.
A TV wedding could mean that ABC would pick up at least most of the tab — or perhaps all of it.
Some celebrities actually get paid for the presence of cameras at their nuptials, but Arie and Lauren might not be quite big-league enough for that.
Still … is the Bachelor Nation going to watch these two tie the knot? If so, will they be hate-watching it?
Or will seeing Becca Kufrin look for love on The Bachelorette make them warm up to Arie and Lauren’s relationship?
Because The Bachelorette premieres on May 28 … exactly one month before the date listed on that registry.
