Now that they’re officially engaged, are Kaitlyn and Shawn planning their wedding? The ‘Bachelorette’ couple spilled their plans for the future on the ‘After the Final Rose’ ceremony!
Shawn Booth, 29, and Kaitlyn Bristowe, 30, just want to be a normal couple! Following the season finale of The Bachelorette on July 27, the two revealed to host Chris Harrison that they aren’t exactly planning their wedding tomorrow, but they are, however, looking forward to morning coffee runs! Check out the couple’s adorable plans!
“Honestly, we woke up this morning being like, it’s Christmas and we can’t wait to go to Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts!” Kaitlyn said during the After the Final Rose ceremony, as far as why she and her new fiance are in no rush to tie the not. “No, we honestly just want to start living life.” We hear ya, sister!
Shawn definitely echoed Kaitlyn, saying that he was not desperate for an immediate wedding, either. “The best thing that could happen tomorrow morning when I wake up is that I get to stand up for my girl and defend her now,” he said, as the crowd erupted into cheers (and as our hearts basically melted into goo). “This girl is the strongest woman I have met in my entire life… The hardest part was having to sit back and not tell anybody that I’m with her and watch some of the stuff that she’s had to go through… But now I can finally stand right next to her and stick up for her because she doesn’t deserve any of that,” he added.
Shawn V. Nick?
Talk about a stand up guy. And with those words, Kaitlyn nuzzled her face into Shawn’s shoulder and he kissed her on the forehead and no, we’re not crying you are!
Of course, there Nick Viall had a lot to say to Kaitlyn too, and actually had a face-to-face with Shawn, who was his nemesis on the show — or at least that’s what it looked like. “I’ll say this about the whole Shawn thing. At the end of the day it was just pretty silly and unfortunate,” Nick said, after shaking Shawn’s hand. They also both admitted they had a lot in common, and may have judged each other a little too fast. You think?
What do you think of Shawn and Kaitlyn’s non-plan wedding plans? Do you think they’re smart not to rush or do you want to see them walk down the aisle already?
