The Bachelorette’s Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo Have a Wedding Date!
Rachel Lindsay hasn’t revealed much about her wedding plans with fiancé Bryan Abasolo — but her silence shouldn’t be mistaken for inaction. In fact, the couple’s big day is set for later this year.
“We have a date, we just haven’t officially released it,” Lindsay told People magazine at the Los Angeles premiere of What Men Want on Monday, January 28. “It will be a destination wedding and it will be toward the end of summer. That’s the biggest hint that I can give. … We’re excited, and now I have to hurry up because it’s just six months away.”
Although she previously considered wearing a suit to walk down the aisle, it now sounds like she’s changed her mind. She told Entertainment Tonight she’ll be wearing a dress by Randi Rahm, who designed the gown she wore when Abasolo proposed on The Bachelorette.
Lindsay also offered more details about the ceremony itself, such as the fact that she won’t have bridesmaids. As for the guest list? “It’s already at 150, so it’s bigger than I would like for it to be, but that’s okay,” she shared with People.
Thankfully, she has a professional to help her out. According to People, Lindsay and Abasolo hired wedding planner Michael Russo to handle their nuptials. “I’m not a bridezilla,” she told the mag. “I don’t have colors, I don’t have flowers, I’m just like, ‘Let’s get it done!'”
The one thing that is important to her is making sure that the wedding reflects both her and her husband-to-be. “Bryan is Colombian, I’m Black, and it is very important that the wedding reflects … that, even into the reception,” she said. “I want to bring some Colombian traditions. A lot of his family from Colombia will be there, because the wedding will be at a location much closer to Colombia.”
“I have found love in a very untraditional way and we want to share our journey with people,” she continued to People. “And so that’s why it has become bigger than I would like, but it is a beautiful thing.”
