Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon Open Up About ‘Stressful’ Wedding Planning (Exclusive)

The couple is hoping to tie the knot next summer.

Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon are feeling that wedding planning stress! The Bachelor Nation couple got engaged in June after a whirlwind romance, but now they’re feeling the pressure of planning their big day. 

ET caught up with the pair at Kershaw’s Challenge 6th Annual PingPong4Purpose event on Thursday, where they dished about wedding planning, their proposal airing, and more! 

"It’s more stressful than we thought,” Iaconetti, 30, admits. "It’s a little surreal,” Haibon adds. 

"Price tags like, what?!” the bride-to-be quips. 

Haibon is certainly feeling the reality of the situation as the couple starts shopping around for venues. 

"It’s a little scary when you start to see the prices,” he confesses. “You go wedding shopping and venue shopping and you’re like, ‘Oh my God, this is real and this is something we’re going to have to pay for,' so it’s a little nerve racking and super exciting.” 

The pressure is slightly off since the couple doesn’t have plans to tie the knot until next summer, but Iaconetti notes, "You have to book your venue like a year ahead of time.”

As for the big day, the couple doesn’t have plans to televise their wedding at the moment. 

"We wish we could do it on TV, but, ya know, we haven’t really had the offer, so we’re doing it on our own right now,” Iaconetti teases. Seriously, get these guys a special! 

One thing that will be televised is Haibon’s beachside proposal. "I hope I don’t sound like an idiot,” Haibon quips.

"He doesn’t, he sounds great!” Iaconetti insists. 

After Haibon notes that he was “very long winded” during the proposal, Iaconetti reveals that viewers will definitely be seeing the “shortened version” of the proposal.
