Bachelor in Paradise and The Bachelor alum Caila Quinn has teased she's appearing on a future episode of Say Yes to the Dress on TLC!
Caila, who announced her engagement to fiance Nick Burrello last month, is apparently in full blown wedding-planning mode and went looking for a dress at the famed Kleinfeld Bridal, where Say Yes to the Dress is filmed.

Nick turned his marriage proposal to Caila into a family affair, as he decided to get down on one knee on the way to visiting her grandparents.
"He was like, 'We're going to go on a little detour and we're going to spend the weekend with both of our parents," Caila recalled to Us.
"He rented an Airbnb for all of us to stay in, the six of us. So, from visiting my grandparents, we drove a couple of hours to another little town and he said that he wanted to do dinner, just the two of us."
Nick reportedly planned a "very romantic, elaborate evening," which began with dinner at the Ritz Carlton, where he had also booked the pair a suite and decorated the room with roses and candles.
"As we start walking up the table at sunset, by the beach, there was an acoustic guitar playing this beautiful romantic song, 'The Way You Look Tonight' and I start tearing up," Caila admitted.
"And it was just a special evening where we had dinner by the ocean and we kind of talked about our relationship, our lives together. It was just the two of us. Then, at the end of the dinner, he asked me to slow dance and I said, 'Okay.' So we started slow dancing and I'm swaying in his arms and then he gets on one knee and he asks me."
After Caila said yes, both sets of their parents rushed in from around the corner to congratulate the happy couple and participate in a toast.
Caila and Nick reportedly intend to marry before the end of this year and are considering tying the knot in Sarasota.
Caila, who was 24-years-old at the time Ben broke up with her, was blindsided, crushed and sent home before a Rose Ceremony in Jamaica.
"I thought I'd be getting engaged in a week-and-a-half. I was ready," Caila said in tears following her ouster.
"I was ready to get married. I was ready to be his wife. I was ready. I was ready for our future. It's all I thought about. My purpose in life is to love other people and I don't know why I haven't found it yet. I thought this was it. I thought this was it. I was ready. I didn't see this coming. I love him, too. Like, I still love him."
That same year, Caila appeared on Season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise and left the show still dating Jared Haibon.
Caila even met Jared's family in Rhode Island, but she revealed during an August 2016 episode of After Paradise that "mystical forces" contributed to their split.
Jared and Ashley reconciled in May 2018 after remaining friends for years and tied the knot in August 2019.
Caila told Us last month she's every grateful for her time on the franchise because it placed her on a path that eventually led to meeting her future husband.
"I was meant to go on the show to find Nick. If I wasn't on the show, I wouldn't ever have met him because I would never have been a blogger and that's who introduced us and set us up on our first date," Caila previously explained. "So, I think everything happens for a reason and I thank God every day."
Caila, who moved from Hudson, OH to New York, NY after her stint on the show, confirmed she was dating Nick in October 2017.
