Although The Bachelor couple just got engaged in early March, Lauren, 25, revealed she and her 36-year-old fiance are planning a Summer 2018 wedding.

Lauren told Life & Style the couple wants to get married this August or September.

"We might do a destination wedding," Arie noted.

And Lauren's family apparently couldn't be happier for Lauren and the pro racing driver, who also does real estate in Scottsdale, AZ.

"I hope it will be in the summer," Lauren's mom, Pamela, told Life & Style. "Lauren's on cloud nine with Arie."

The Bachelor's Season 22 finale aired earlier this month and featured Arie proposing marriage to the woman who had received his final rose, Becca Kufrin, but then dumping her less than two months later on-camera because he said his heart belonged to his runner-up, Lauren.

After ending his engagement to Becca and breaking her heart, Arie ran back to Lauren days later and begged her for a second chance. She welcomed him back with open arms and then Arie popped the question March 6 on The Bachelor: After the Final Rose.

"I thought we would get a lot more backlash," admitted Lauren.

"Since we've been out in public the last few days, people have been really supportive. It's been really sweet," revealed Arie, who added, however, the pair have been making an effort to avoid negativity and hate on social media.

Arie and Lauren are reportedly hoping to wed on TV for a couple of reasons, including the fact ABC picks up most of the tab.

"They'd love to get married on TV because it would be a continuation of their love story," an insider told Life & Style. "They want viewers to be able to see the next chapter of their journey."

And Lauren's mom actually confessed it "would be wonderful" to have the network foot the bill.

"My husband's probably going to jump up and down at that thought!" Pamela gushed of the idea.

Arie and Lauren embarked on a romantic vacation to escape all The Bachelor drama and simply enjoy each other's company shortly after the finale aired on ABC. The pair kicked off their trip with a stop in Reykjavik, Iceland and then traveled to Spain.

"It's been magical, love. So sad to leave our little piece of heaven here in Barcelona. It's been nothing short of amazing. @iberostar," Lauren captioned a photo of them smiling and kissing on Wednesday while sitting on a rooftop.
