Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell are on the verge of tying the knot. The former Bachelor stars are reportedly set to exchange vows this year, but only after they have had some time to settle into their new home in Colorado. But just how soon will the wedding take place?

According to the Hollywood Gossip, Higgins and Bushnell recently sat down for an interview at Indiana University. When speaking with What’s Up Weekly, Bushnell revealed that she has already started planning for the big ceremony.

“We’ve been engaged now for a lot longer than when the show ended, so I’m ready to at least start planning… Maybe by the end of this year.”

A few weeks back, Bushnell posted a photo on Instagram, thanking her jeweler for fitting her engagement ring. Bushnell snapped a quick pic outside of Neil Lane’s jewelry store and hinted that wedding plans were on her mind.

“Thanks Neil for making my ring fit perfectly! Also for making the most beautiful ring I’ve ever laid eyes on,” she wrote alongside the image. “Now that my ring fits perhaps I should start wedding planning.”

It is unclear exactly when the two will walk down the aisle. However, according to Parent Herald, the timing of the ceremony will depend on how well they adjust to their new lives together in Denver.

So far, the couple has been very busy since the end of The Bachelor. This includes touring the country and a few recent public appearances, such as the iHeartCountry Festival in Austin. In fact, the two have not spent a whole lot of time in Denver, though Bushnell has officially moved into her new home.

According to News Everyday, Higgins and Bushnell had a blast at the Austin event. Not only did they enjoy listening to the best performers in country music, but they also took the stage for a light-hearted performance of their own.

Based on their travels, the couple is still taking advantage of their celebrity status. It isn’t known when the two will start to settle down and how their busy schedule will impact the date of their wedding. If the reports are true, then Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell will need to spend a lot of time together in Denver before they decide to go through with the wedding.

Of course, their time in Denver has not been without controversy. With Bushnell having to leave her old life in L.A. behind her, rumors have circulated that she is having trouble adjusting. Specifically, an inside source told In Touch that is Bushnell having difficulty securing employment in the area.

“Ben has told Lauren numerous times to get a job. She isn’t contributing to their life at all,” the insider shared.

That being said, Bushnell recently explained that she is still employed as a flight attendant, and that Higgins worries about her whenever she flies.

Apart from the reported tension, Higgins and Bushnell appear very happy together. With news of a wedding just around the corner, one of the biggest questions remaining is whether or not the event will be televised live.

A televised wedding has not been confirmed, though Higgins and Bushnell did spend a lot of time in L.A. recently. Although their main goal was moving Bushnell’s belongings to Denver, reports quickly surfaced that they had met with network executives about the possibility of televising their ceremony.

The idea of Higgins and Bushnell televising their wedding makes sense, especially considering their popularity on The Bachelor. Unfortunately, fans will have to wait until an official wedding date has been set before more information is revealed.
