Girl meets boy on reality show. Girl falls in love with boy(s). Girl wants to be married, like, “right now.”
At least, that seems to be how the love story goes for “The Bachelorette’s” Ali Fedotowsky. The 25-year-old reality TV star told People that she and winner Roberto Martinez, 26, would elope, if not for worries about disappointing their families.
“We just want to be married,” she said. “We’re just excited for that. We’re like, ‘Let’s be married - right now!’”
A rushed wedding does seem appropriate given the premise of “Bachelorette” - date 25 guys, whittle it down to one and get engaged, all in a timeframe of 10 weeks. Why wait a reasonable amount of time to tie the knot?
For now, though, the couple is still planning a wedding. Fedotowsky announced on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” earlier this month that she was hoping for a spring ceremony.
So far, Fedotowsky has picked out a possible wedding dress designer and first dance song. She told Us Weekly that she's considering Monique Lhuillier for her gown.
As for the music, Fedotowsky told People that she is leaning toward “Bendita tu lauz,” a song her fiancé first played for her. “It’s beautiful,” she said. “It’s our own organic song.”
Alas, the wedding must go on, but that hasn’t stopped Fedotowsky from jumping the gun on a few minor details.
“I’ve even caught myself saying, ‘This is my husband Roberto,’” she told People. “I always thought it would be funny to even think or say that, but if anything, I feel like it’s hard for me not to say it.”
Here’s hoping spring gets here before the inevitable breakup rumors.
