Melissa Rycroft's year ended better than it began.

The rejected The Bachelor bachelorette and former Dancing with the Stars celebrity participant wed Ty Strickland in Mexico on Saturday, Us Weekly reported.

The 30-minute sunset ceremony was attended by family members and friends on the small island of Isla Mujeres, according to Us, which added it concluded with an instrumental version of the Monday Night Football theme song for Rycroft, a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader.

The couple had previously had a joint bachelor/bachelorette party in Las Vegas last month and plans to make their home in the Dallas suburbs.

"I definitely want to have kids, but not any time soon," Rycroft previously told Us. "We want to put ourselves first for as long as we can. I want it to be us for as long as possible before we have some little twerp running around."

Rycroft and Strickland got engaged in June -- less than eight months after she got engaged to Jason Mesnick during the taping of The Bachelor's thirteenth-season Final Rose Ceremony in November.

However Mesnick later dumped her on-air in favor of runner-up Molly Malaney during a January taping of the season's After the Final Rose special. Mesnick and Malaney subsequently got engaged last month.

"I'm really happy for [Rycroft]," Mesnick told People.

"This whole journey took her to a place where things looked like they were down for her. But then she ended up with the person she was mean to be with. That's what life's all about. I couldn't be happier for her."

Rycroft and Strickland met about three years ago at a mutual friend's birthday party before they dated "on/off."  The couple was "off" during filming for The Bachelor last fall. 

Since being dumped by Mesnick, Rycroft competed on Dancing with the Stars eighth season this past spring and has also worked as a correspondent for ABC's Good Morning America.
