Arie Luyendyk Jr., Lauren Burnham Share Details About Their Upcoming Wedding

Close

Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham are prepping for their upcoming wedding. The happy couple is looking forward to tying the knot.

Not Available For Public Consumption

The Bachelor couple appeared on The View on Wednesday to confirm that they're looking at a Jan. 12wedding date.

Unfortunately, fans won't be able to tune in for their big day as, unlike their courtship, and several other Bachelor weddings over the years, it's not going to be broadcast on TV.

"It's a private wedding, so not on TV," joked Luyendyk Jr.

The ceremony will take place in scenic Maui, at Haiku Mill, which has plenty of vines and greenery.

"It's not your typical beach wedding. It's so pretty," he added.

Only 100 guests are expected to attend the intimate, private ceremony next year.

A Rocky Road To Romance

Luyendyk Jr. and Burnham got engaged under controversial circumstances. The then-Bachelor originally asked Becca Kufrin to marry him, before changing his mind once production wrapped.

Luyendyk Jr. subsequently dumped Kufrin on TV and proposed to Burnham on the After The Final Rose finale special.

Since they only got engaged back in March, January of next year will mark less than 12 months of engagement after just a few months of dating.

The happily-in-love couple isn't bothered by the quick time span, however.

"I think if we were able to get married tomorrow, we would. We're just really happy with each other and we vibe well together. We're best friends, so we're just ready for that next step," gushed Burnham.

Timing Is Everything

It's worth noting that Kufrin announced her engagement earlier this week, ahead of the season premiere of The Bachelorette this coming Monday.

Luyendyk Jr. and Burnham were coy about the timing of their announcement, claiming they have little control over these things.

Although the couple received backlash for their treatment of Kufrin, during their View appearance, they confirmed they're focusing on keeping things positive.

Burnham even suggested that Luyendyk Jr. facing the hatred of the whole country -- which included billboards being erected to shame him -- proved his devotion to her.

Kufrin recently told Us Weekly that, after watching the whole Bachelor season back, she realized that Luyendyk Jr. was just following his heart and she could empathize with him a bit more now that she's on the other side of it.

Her season of The Bachelorette premieres on ABC Monday, at 8 p.m. ET.
