The Bachelor Nation stars Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick previously intended to marry on New Year’s Eve, so the countdown to their nuptials isn’t exactly on.
“I really wanted to. I would still actually be happy to do it,” the 37-year-old reality star exclusively said on Us Weekly’s “Here for the Right Reasons” podcast about exchanging vows this December 31. “Jason and I are so funny.
Like, if we talk about a venue — we actually have such different styles, different tastes, different everything that it’s almost frustrating. Because I’ll be like, ‘I’m in love with this venue and it’s perfect and it’s open.’ And he’ll be like, ‘Oh, no, that’s no. That’s not the style we’re going for at all.’”
Bristowe joked that “everyone and their dogs are getting married right now making up for time from the pandemic,” making it “so hard” to book a venue.
“If we both agree on a venue, it’s booked until, like, late next year,” she said. “Could we just potentially have this small, little intimate event in our backyard [or] anywhere — I don’t care on the lake or wherever, and then do the party thing at a venue later next year?’ I’m still into that idea.
So we’re trying to come up with ideas just because I did not know that finding a venue or picking a date would be this hard. I’d be like, ‘Why are people waiting so long to get married?’ Like, unless they come off The Bachelor then I’m like, ‘Take your time!’”
As per Us magazine, the host of the podcast “Off the Vine” noted that Tartick, 33, is “so set” on having a big wedding.
“I’m so not traditional that I’m like, ‘Why can’t we go to the courthouse?’ Because I would,” she told Us, adding that there’s no deadline for the pair to wed. “He’s not down.”
After almost two years of dating, Bristowe and Tartick got engaged in May 2021. While the host of the “Trading Secrets” podcast might get his way and have a more traditional wedding, the former Bachelorette’s bridal look might keep him on his toes.
“I would totally wear a pantsuit. I love the idea of all my bridesmaids being in pantsuits, and me in a dress and then switching it where they also wear dresses and I switched into a pantsuit for the party,” she told Us. “I just love a pantsuit. I used to make fun of how often Jason wore blazers because I’d be like, ‘Oh, my God, you’re so New York.’
And I’m like, ‘I am Mrs. Tartick.’ I wear a blazer all the time. I like wearing dresses, sometimes. But I go back and forth. I want a pantsuit. I want a tight dress, I want a loose dress, I want a short dress. I want a crop top. I can’t make a decision to save my life.”
