Bachelor Nation Weddings
From The Bachelor and Bachelorette to the franchise’s spin-offs, here are the couples that have made it down the aisle.
Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter
The first-ever Bachelorette, Trista Rehn, gave her final rose to the fireman/poet and then became the first-ever Bachelor nation bride when the two tied the knot in December 2003. ABC aired the nuptials for all to see and more than 17 million people tuned in.
Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney
The Bachelor‘s 13th season had one of the most controversial endings: Jason Mesnick sent Molly Malaney home and proposed to Melissa Rycroft. Then, at the taping of After the Final Rose, he changed his mind. Jason and Molly then tied the knot in February of 2010.
Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum
Another Bachelorette success story, this one is about as simple as they come: Ashley Hebert was the seventh Bachelorette. She chose J.P. Rosenbaum, and he proposed in the season finale. And by December 2012, they were married.
Holly Durst and Blake Julian
The only Bachelor Pad couple in the mix, Holly Durst and Blake Julian met on season 2 — Durst coming from Matt Grant’s season of The Bachelor and Julian from Ashley Hebert’s Bachelorette. The two were engaged by season’s end and tied the knot in June of 2012.
Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert
Another spin-off couple, Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert met on the second season of Bachelor in Paradise and quickly fell in love. Their January 2016 wedding then aired as part of an ABC special.
DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano
DeAnna Pappas didn’t find true love during her time on The Bachlor or as The Bachelorette, but in the end, Bachelor Nation came through for her when fellow alums Michael Stagliano and his then-girlfriend Holly Durst set Pappas up with Michael’s twin brother, Stephen. Deanna and Stephen were then married in October 2011.
Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici
Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici found love on The Bachelor season 17. Another straightforward romance, he gave her his final rose and got down on one knee in the season finale. The two then televised their January 2014 wedding ceremony.
Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul
The first Bachelor in Paradise couple to wed was Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul, who met on the show’s first season and returned in its second to say “I do” on television. However, the couple ultimately split with Grodd claiming that their marriage was never legal.
Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried
On The Bachelorette‘s ninth season, Desiree Hartsock found love with Chris Siegfriend (after Brooks Forester broke her heart). By season’s end, she had a fiancé, and by January 2015, a husband.
Carly Waddell and Evan Bass
Perhaps the strangest love story, Carly Waddell and Evan Bass met on Bachelor in Paradise‘s third season, where Evan fell madly in love and Carly couldn’t stand him. But when Evan “faked his own death,” Carly realized maybe she did like this guy, and by the time the fourth season of the show rolled around, they returned to Mexico to get freakin’ married.
