On Monday, Rachel took to Instagram to reveal she has hired Michael Russo as her wedding planner. She also shared the time of year in which she and Bryan will say, "I do."
"O-M-G It's happening! Wedding planner, [check]. Thank you @mikierusso for making me a bride!" Rachel captioned a photo of Michael and herself.
"I'm beyond excited. I cant wait to take you all along this journey and share details with you. Countdown to making RnB official #summer2019 #rnb #bridetobe."
Rachel disclosed to Entertainment Tonight several hours later she and Bryan will get married in the latter part of the summer.
"I haven't announced the official date yet," Rachel teased. "It will be a destination wedding in a warmer location, closer to Colombia, where Bryan's from, but it's not in Colombia."
As for what she'll be wearing when she walks down the aisle, Rachel said she decided to go with a dress by Randi Rahm, who also designed former The Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert's wedding gown for her 2012 televised wedding to J.P. Rosenbaum.
Not only that, but Rachel feels like she has a close connection with Randi Rahm and her designs, dating back to her The Bachelorette stint.
"She did the dress that I met the guys in the first night [and] she designed the dress that Bryan proposed to me in, so it only makes sense that that's who I go with to design my wedding dress that I'm walking down the aisle to Bryan in," Rachel told ET.
"I'm very, very excited... We're hitting the ground running. [I've] got to go to New York, get fitted!"
Rachel also revealed she wants a "50-person wedding" and her bridesmaids will probably just be her sisters given she's 33 years old and has a ton of girlfriends.
In July 2018, Rachel told ET she was "all about a TV wedding," but five months later, she admitted to People that ABC never offered the couple a televised wedding due to "scheduling, timing and money." She added, however, it was "nothing personal."
Although Rachel and Bryan continued to push back their wedding date after getting engaged, Rachel assured The Morning Toast in October 2018 their relationship is healthy and thriving.
"Here's the good news. Bryan and I are legit... he's not going anywhere and we're not stalling [on the wedding] because we're having problems. The one amazing thing in my life is Bryan, for sure. Hands down," Rachel had gushed at the time.
