Rachel Lindsay had a lot of difficult decisions to make on her season of The Bachelorette, but now that she and fiancé Bryan Abasolo are marching steadily toward their upcoming wedding this summer, she had a pretty crucial one to make regarding her wedding dress—luckily for her, it was an easy one.
Lindsay announced Monday, Jan. 28, that she has decided upon celeb-favorite Randi Rahm as the designer who will create her wedding dress. For the 33-year-old attorney, the decision was a no-brainer.
“She did the dress that I met the guys in the first night [and] she designed the dress that Bryan proposed to me in, so it only makes sense that that’s who I go with to design my wedding dress that I’m walking down the aisle to Bryan in,” Lindsay said in a press release to The Knot. “I’m very, very excited … We’re hitting the ground running. [I’ve] gotta go to New York, get fitted!”
Rahm, on her part, is also “very excited” to be working with the former Bachelorette for her wedding day look. (Rahm also dressed recent Bachelorette Becca Kufrin for her finale look, as well as her slinky, white, sequined gown look the first night she met her suitors outside the mansion).
Lindsay and Abasolo, 38, got engaged on the season finale of The Bachelorette back in 2017, and have been excitedly enjoying life together in Dallas ever since. Lindsay announced via an Instagram post earlier this week that they’re looking forward to getting hitched this summer in an undisclosed, warm-weather location in a wedding that will be orchestrated by celebrity planner Mikie Russo of Michael Russo Events.
“I am ready!” she told Entertainment Tonight recently. “I just announced on Instagram literally today that it is summer 2019 that we are getting married, the latter part of summer. I haven’t announced the official date yet. It will be a destination wedding in a warmer location, closer to Colombia, where Bryan’s from, but it’s not in Colombia.”
The former reality star will be working with celebrity wedding planner Michael Russo to map out their big fete—something she never thought would happen. “I am doing things a little different than I thought, so I’m excited,” she told ET, admitting that she always thought she’d get married in a courthouse ceremony. “I wanted a 50 person wedding. We’re already at 150!”
