Get out the rose centerpieces! Bachelor in Paradise’s Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert are getting married on Valentine’s Day, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm. Like Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici before them, the future spouses will say “I do” live on ABC.
Roper, 29, moved in with Tolbert, 28, after getting engaged during Bachelor in Paradise’s season 2 finale, which aired in September 2015. They currently live in Kansas City, Missouri, and recently put down a deposit for a new home.
“Adulting real hard today. Tanner and I just put a deposit down on a few acres to build our home together!” Roper captioned an Instagram photo on Sunday, January 10. “#jannerforever.”
The lovebirds have also been adding Crate & Barrel items to their wedding registry. “When ‘bae’ drags you to @crateandbarrel to do your wedding registry when the playoffs are on #jannerforever,” Tolbert captioned an Instagram snapshot on Sunday.
Roper added in another photo: “Good man right here, he ran errands with me all day on his day off and during some of Sunday football. That’s love. P.S. Winter stole my freckles and I miss them. P.P.S. Gotta love copper mugs! Moscow mules for him, Irish mules for me.”
Last year, Roper opened up about her relationship with Tolbert shortly after getting engaged. “We don’t want a huge wedding, but he has a lot of important people that he wants to make sure are able to come,” she told Us at the time.
“I’ve wanted to get married under a willow tree,” she added. “I’ve always, with an outdoor wedding, [wanted my dress to] be very soft and romantic, but obviously nothing too outrageous that you can’t wear outside.”
The bride-to-be also contemplated the idea of a televised wedding at the time. “Tanner is more open to it than I am, but I’m not completely closed off. I just want to make sure that that doesn’t take away from the sacred feeling of a wedding,” she told Us. “But we’d gotten such a huge positive response from America about our engagement, so I know that it’s something that they are invested in and would like to see.”
This will be the first marriage for both. Roper previously tried to find love on Chris Soules’ season 19 of The Bachelor. Tanner appeared on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season 11 of The Bachelorette.
