Janu-Arie awaits. Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. and fiancée Lauren Burnham have set a wedding date and a location, the couple announced Wednesday, May 23, on The View.

The two have opted for a Hawaii wedding to kick off 2019. The venue itself is Haiku Mill in Maui, which Luyendyk described as a “beautiful, Old World field” with “lots of vines and greenery.” The groom also claimed that his nuptials would be far from a “typical beach wedding.”

Aloha friends – this is a longer post, but an important one. There has been considerable media coverage of the island of Hawaii’s Kilauea eruption, which has created some false perceptions of the safety of the Hawaiian Islands in general. We are concerned for those in the affected areas who have been impacted. At the same time, it is important to know that it is completely safe to visit the island of Hawaii and all of the other Hawaiian Islands, including Maui. The “hot zone” is a very small one, limited to the Summit of Kilauea and a remote area on the island of Hawaii’s east side. If you are reconsidering your visit to our beautiful state, please be assured that you have nothing to worry about – there is absolutely no reason at this time for you to change or alter your plans. We hope to see you at Haiku Mill – and on the beautiful island of Maui – soon! Photo: @mychelle_levan_photography_

The date is January 12, 2019. Only 100 or so guests will be invited to witness the moment. “I think if we were able to get married tomorrow, we would,” Burnham chimed in. “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.”

Unlike other Bachelor couples, the two have opted not to document their nuptials for live television. “It’s a private wedding, so not on TV,” the race car driver noted. Previously, the two were open to a TV wedding, though by next January, a new Bachelor will likely replace Luyendyk as the lead.

Luyendyk’s former fiancee Becca Kufrin, in the meantime, revealed Tuesday that she’s engaged after wrapping her season of The Bachelorette. Luyendyk controversially broke up with Kufrin in favor of his runner-up Burnham on national television—after the finale episode was shot in Peru.
