Weddings on her mind. Season 13 Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay says she is undoubtedly thinking of her wedding following her engagement to her mystery fiancé this past spring.
“We actually haven’t talked about a date because we just want to get to know each other,” Lindsay told E! News at the ESPYS on Wednesday, July 12. “We’re like when can we be in public? When can we go to the grocery store, grab coffee, go to the movies?”
Currently, four suitors remain ahead of hometown dates airing next Monday on ABC. They include Peter, Dean, Eric and Bryan—and one will be her future husband. The Bachelorette added that she has “definitely found love and not in a hopeless place.”
The wedding details will likely unfold before Lindsay’s predecessor JoJo Fletcher, whose fiance Jordan Rodgers revealed this week that they are currently extending their engagement while focusing on their respective careers.
“I’m thinking maybe next year, the end of next year maybe,” Lindsay told E! on the red carpet. “We’re not rushing it but sooner than later.”
She emphasized what’s most important to her on her wedding day. “I have never been the girl to plan their wedding, picked out the dress,” she said. “I’m like what are we going to do for the party? What kind of music are we going to have? Who’s going to be there? Where’s it going to be?”
Lindsay previously opened up to The Knot about her suitors—while she was still on her Bachelorette journey in April. “They may have heard about me or read about me, but now they’re getting the real me. And these guys… are not intimidated,” she said at the time.
The Dallas-based lawyer then revealed some of her leading suitors’ attributes. “Direct, self-aware, confident, established,” she expressed at the time. “And just this goes back to being self-aware: Guys who know exactly what they want and are so comfortable where they are in their lives right now. That has been lacking in my previous relationships, and honestly, I’ve known a lot of guys who are intimidated by me and these guys aren’t.”
