Were all those roses for nothing?! Will that Neil Lane engagement ring and it’s whopping 3.75 carat oval-cut diamond (and the $100,000 it cost) go to waste?! Less than two months since The Bachelorette finale aired and we watched Jordan Rodgers get down on one knee and propose to JoJo Fletcher, breakup rumors have been flying around the supposedly to-be-wedded pair. So will we have ever get to see that red rose bridal bouquet or their televised wedding ceremony? Well, Fletcher and Rodgers are finally setting the record straight.
Since The Bachelorette finale aired, these two have been seemingly moving forward with their relationship at warp speed. Back in August, the reality show sweethearts made the move from Tennessee to Texas to move into their nearly-wed nest in Dallas and then later celebrated their engaged status at a surprise engagement party thrown by their family and friends. “My heart is so full!” Fletcher captioned an Instagram snapshot of her and her hubby-to-be’s families at the engagement bash. “Jordan and I were going out to what we thought was just a little dinner with friends but instead walked into a room full of both our friends and family to celebrate in our engagement. We are so incredibly blessed,” she wrote, including the hashtag “#fletchersmeettherodgers.” So with the pair apparently basking in the premarital bliss, what’s the deal these breakup rumors?
According to Fletcher and Rodgers, they turn out to be totally false. (Thank god, right?) “Obviously not,” Rodgers staunchly told TMZ reporters when asked if he had called it quits with his bride-to-be. “I don’t know where those rumors are coming from,” added Fletcher. “Everything’s amazing. Same old same old,” she confirmed. Phew, that’s a relief! Imagine if we never got to see these two cuties say “I do?” Now about those “I do’s…”
Fletcher and Rodgers also shared that they’re in the midst of planning their big day — although it doesn’t seem like they’re too far along, as they don’t even have a venue booked yet! “We’re trying to figure out where it’s going to be first,” said Rodgers. The wedding locale may still be up in the air, but it sounds like the guest list is already written — with some Bachelor Nation alumni making the cut! “Oh yeah, for sure,” Fletcher said when asked if they’ll be inviting any Bachelor or Bachelorette cast members. “Becca’s [Tilley] one of my good friends, she’ll probably be in the wedding.”
We’re already counting down the days until this Bachelor Nation reunion!
