As America watches Nick Viall begin his search for love as the new Bachelor, Bachelor in Paradise alums Carly Waddell and Evan Bass are preparing to walk down the aisle!
ET's Lauren Zima caught up with the couple on Monday, where they dished about life after their paradise proposal, and revealed that they'll be tying the knot in 2017.
"We haven't set a date yet, but it will be this year!" Bass happily announced.
While they've decided to get hitched this year, that's about all they've decided on so far -- but say that a televised wedding is something they'd consider.
"It's on the table," Bass confessed. "That's just one of those things that we have to just like work through."
"I told Evan, I was like, 'Whatever you want to do. You find out what you want to do, and I'll plan it,'" added Waddell, who revealed she'd be scouting locations for their wedding in Napa on Tuesday. "I've never been that girl that's like, 'This is my dress, these are my flowers,' I don't care. Like, I would marry him in a courthouse and be fine."
As for which members of Bachelor Nation we'll be seeing in the wedding party? Waddell says definitely Jade Roper (who televised her nuptials to Tanner Tolbert on Valentine's Day last year, after the two got engaged on the finale of Bachelor in Paradise season two) and Juelia Kinney, who was also part of the spinoff's second season.

"Wells [Adams] is going to be a groomsman [and] Nick [Viall] is definitely going to be a part [of it]," Bass shared. "We've talked about him officiating it, so I don't know. Chris Harrison and he are going to have to fight it out and then there's people like Vinny [Ventiera]… You want them all to be a part of it."
"It's crazy how this Bachelor family, we really do love each other," Waddell said.
For now, the couple is happily living together in Nashville, Tennessee, where Waddell has been bonding with Bass' three sons, Ensley, Liam and Nathan.
"I was really nervous going home after Paradise because I was like, 'What is my life going to be like? Are the kids going to like me?'" Waddell admitted. "It's just been so easy. The boys were so kind to me from the moment I met them, and it's gotten better and better and better. We all really love each other."
"The boys adore her," Bass agreed. "It's really amazing. It's just the energy she brings. You're drawn to her, and I think she just walked in so positive and welcoming."
"She's done the work too," he added, revealing that Waddell has become a "soccer mom." "She's taken them each out, and she'll take them to do fun things. If I have to stay at work a little late, she'll hang with them. She's really invested in the time it takes."

And while the couple definitely has their hands full now, they haven't ruled out having children of their own someday soon.
"We talk about [kids] a lot," Waddell confessed, adding that they might have "two or three" kids in a couple of years.
