'Bachelor' Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham Reveal Wedding Date

The news comes just days before Becca Kufrin's 'Bachelorette' premiere, and one day after ABC confirmed she's engaged.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham are ready to say "I do!" 

The Bachelor couple revealed details about their upcoming nuptials -- including their wedding date -- during an appearance on The View on Wednesday. The two are tying the knot on Jan. 12 in Maui, Hawaii, at the Haiku Mill.

The wedding won't be televised, Luyendyk revealed, adding that it will be "private," with about 100 guests.

"I think if we could get married tomorrow we would," Burnham said of why they're tying the knot so quickly. "We're just really happy with each other. We vibe well together and are ready for the next step." 

Luyendyk made headlines after proposing to Burnham on The Bachelor: After the Final Rose, just one day after the show aired his brutal breakup with Becca Kufrin. Luyendyk had originally proposed to Kufrin in his finale, before changing his mind weeks later to pursue a relationship with Burnham, his runner-up. 

Kufrin went on to become our next Bachelorette, with her season premiering on ABC next Monday. The network confirmed to ET on Tuesday that she's also engaged.  Luyendyk and Burnham said they "didn't have any control" over announcing their wedding date just before Kufrin's premiere. 

In an interview with ET in March, one day after their engagement, Luyendyk and Burnham revealed they were planning to tie the knot fairly quickly. "The wedding planning has already begun, and I'll be moving to Arizona [to live with Luyendyk]," Burnham shared. 

"We plan to [get married this year]," Luyendyk added. 

"I am confident in [him]," Burnham said of their relationship. "We've had a lot of conversations about it, and I trust him and I don't think that he would have taken such a huge risk and faced all of this backlash if he wasn't really serious about this decision." 

"I didn't come here to set any records. I just want a happy ending," said Luyendyk, the first Bachelor to propose to two different women in one season. "I think this brought me here with her, and this is why I came on the show, to meet someone like her, and it's made it all worth it."
