Not all happily-ever-afters are easy, and no one knows that more than Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham. Arie was ABC’s most recent Bachelor, who became known for the fact that he pulled a Mesnick at the end of his season: He proposed to (the next Bachelorette) Becca Kufrin before changing his mind and reuniting with Lauren Burnham… resulting in an excruciatingly painful breakup scene between Arie and Becca.

But thankfully, that’s all over now, and while Becca sets her sights on finding a new man on The Bachelorette, Arie and Lauren officially have a wedding date. The couple announced on Wednesday’s The View that they will wed in a private ceremony in Maui on Saturday, Jan. 12, 2019.

The wedding will take place almost exactly a year since the couple first met; Arie began his journey on The Bachelor in January of 2018. Once his season came to an end, Arie proposed to Lauren in front of a live studio audience on March 6, 2018.
