'The Bachelorette's Jordan Rodgers: I don't want my wedding to JoJo Fletcher televised


By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 07/11/2017 

The Bachelorette couple Jordan Rodgers and JoJo Fletcher have yet to set a wedding date, but Jordan has revealed when that big day comes, he would prefer to have the event off-camera.

Jordan, 28, admitted that when he gets married to his fiancee JoJo, 26, he does not want the ceremony to be televised, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"It's something everyone always asks us. That's something we would have to discuss together but very honestly, my first reaction would be that I would probably rather not," Jordan explained.

"There's a distinct intimacy and privacy and it's a very special moment with family and friends, and I wouldn't want anything to tarnish that or to take away from that. It's a time that I want to be able to honor my fiancee and soon-to-be wife and her family, and I want it to be ours."

Jordan suggested he doesn't want ABC taking over the reins of his wedding day. As with previous televised weddings, such as Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert's wedding for example, many people from Bachelor Nation were invited who probably wouldn't have made the guest list to begin with.

"I want us to run the show and make sure it's always what we imagined," Jordan said of his pending nuptials with JoJo. "If there's a way to do that and include fans, great. But that wouldn't be my first wish."

The couple got engaged at the conclusion of The Bachelorette's twelfth season in Summer 2016, so Jordan and JoJo have been dating for about one year now.

When asked why they haven't set a wedding date, Jordan told The Reporter, "The commitment to each other is absolutely still there and that's something we are going to do. We're also figuring out our life. We're learning more about each other every single day, what our life is going to look like and where it's going to be. Both of our careers and what we're passionate about."

Jordan said he's simply enjoying his engagement to JoJo right now, adding that there is no need to rush marriage when they're so happy.

"[We are] continuing to date and court each other, and getting to know each other even more. And then when the time is right, we're absolutely going to sit down and start planning that," Jordan said of the wedding. "But we're definitely taking our time. We want everything to be right and make sure we're in the right place."

Jordan currently works as a sportscaster on the SEC Network while he said JoJo is back to flipping houses again. When she first appeared on Ben Higgins' season of The Bachelor, JoJo was dubbed a real estate developer although she was only responsible for one property at the time. 

The pair also recently moved to a new residence in Dallas, TX, which is JoJo's hometown.

"We just moved to a different place in a great neighborhood close to JoJo's family," Jordan told The Reporter. "We're getting settled and moving everything in -- there's clothes everywhere and we're getting our closets together right now. But we love our little neighborhood that we're in."

However, Jordan noted they aren't sure whether they'll live in Dallas forever and there are "a lot of moving parts" as they attempt to figure things out together.

In the meantime, the former reality TV stars are "very relaxed" and enjoying their "downtime" together.

"Even six months after [The Bachelorette], it was still crazy. We would have people showing up at our house all day and night. Depending the city you are in, the cameras will follow you whether you are grocery shopping or whatnot. You always feel like you have to be 'on,'" Jordan said of fame and life in the spotlight.

"It's definitely slowed down and is much more normal now. We still love seeing our fans and fans that want pictures, but it feels back to somewhat normal."
