The Bachelorette alum Andi Dorfman has shared details about her upcoming Italian wedding to fiance Blaine Hart.

Andi, who accepted Blaine's marriage proposal in March 2022, is set to get married in May 2023 in Italy, E!News reported.


Andi, 35, shared of planning her wedding with Blaine so far, "It's been good, honestly. We've been lucky in the sense that we've kind of agreed on everything."

Andi and Blaine will be exchanging vows in the same location where they reconnected after her time on The Bachelor franchise.

"We both wanted to do a destination wedding," Andi said.

"You know, the wedding that I want at 36 now is so much different than the wedding I would've wanted in my 20s, and I definitely want it to be smaller, more intimate. And we also want to share our love of travel."

The Season 10 The Bachelorette star continued, "Some of our friends have never been to Italy. They're so excited. We love hearing about where they're going to be before and after. It's really a chance for us to push our friends to enjoy travel like we do."

Andi pointed out how marrying abroad actually made the wedding plans a little simpler, and it helps that the pair hired an experienced wedding planner.

"I feel like doing a destination wedding, you don't have a ton of options. It's not like here where you know you're going to the florist or you're going somewhere and seeing 50 million options," the bride-to-be explained.

"Of course, you're going to have disagreements on that. But nope! We just have a few options and we're like, 'Cool, that looks good.'"

Since getting engaged, Andi has documented the couple's road to the altar on Instagram.

Andi previously shared photos of her wedding invitations as well as her fun "La Dolce Vita" bridal shower with family and friends, which took place in Atlanta, GA.

"The dress is definitely my favorite part," shared Andi, who will be wearing custom gowns by Mark Ingram on her big day.

"I mean, I am getting married for the dresses and obviously the marriage. But let's be honest: I'm having a wedding for the dresses."


Andi confirmed some members of Bachelor Nation will attend the wedding but there won't be any red roses in her decor!

"I never even liked roses, which is the funniest part," Andi quipped. "I'm one of those girls that I just like white, crisp flowers. I've never liked red roses. So no, there will definitely not be red roses there."

Andi and Blaine recently bought a house together in Greenville, SC.

Andi admitted to the world she was in love in February 2022, and then one month later, she announced her engagement to Blaine. Andi wrote on Instagram in March 2022 that it was well "worth the wait."

Blaine popped the question on a beach in Los Angeles, CA, which just so happens to be the pair's special "spot" where they often enjoy sunset cocktails.

Blaine proposed with a ring designed by the same jeweler who had created Andi's mother's engagement ring nearly 40 years ago. Andi told People last year that her ring "symbolizes so much love and happiness."

Andi told the magazine at the time that she and Blaine would love a summer wedding in Italy, where they had rekindled their romance in Summer 2021.

"I'll be honest," Andi said, "the idea of planning a wedding is overwhelming for me, but I joke with Blaine that I want to play the role of the groom during the wedding process and maybe he can narrow every option down to three and I'll choose from there. We'll see if that happens."

Andi initially revealed on Instagram in November 2021 that she was dating someone special, but she didn't disclose his identity at the time. She even posted photos on Instagram without showing his face.

But Andi officially introduced Blaine to the world via Instagram on New Year's Eve, ringing in 2022 in a big way.

And then on New Year's Day, Andi uploaded a photo of the pair posing side by side in formal attire outside of the swanky hotel.

"Cheers to a year filled with love and sparkles. 2022... I have a feeling you might very well be the best one yet! Happy New Year," Andi wrote alongside her post.

Andi told People that she wanted to "protect" Blaine from the public eye for as long as she could.

"But it's fun for me to share it now, and it makes me feel good to see that people are truly happy that I finally found love," she said at the time.

Andi insisted her love for Blaine is different from what she had felt in past relationships.

"Not only do we love each other tremendously, but we like being with each other. We both just want to make the other happy and in turn our relationship is a lot of fun. That's the word I'd use to describe our relationship: fun," Andi boasted.

"It's not about it being easy or hard; that's not our barometer. I knew Blaine was different and I remember just hoping that the shoe wouldn't drop and this was the real deal and it turned out it was!"


Blaine told Us Weekly last year that timing was "everything" when it came to how his romance with Andi got started.

Andi previously explained how she and Blaine had been friends and they happened to be in Italy at the same time, on separate vacations, in Summer 2021, about 15 years after they first met.

"He basically said, 'I want to take you out for drinks' [and we've] been together ever since!" Andi gushed to Us last year.

Andi recalled meeting up with Blaine and having "no expectations," but she couldn't deny his good looks.

"When he walked into the bar... I was like, 'Dang, he's so cute,'" Andi recalled.

Andi then tried to convince Blaine to move to Los Angeles, but he apparently won that debate.

Andi, a former assistant district attorney from Atlanta, found fame when she appeared on The Bachelor's 18th season starring Juan Pablo Galavis.

Andi proceeded to star on The Bachelorette in 2014, when she rejected runner-up Nick Viall and got engaged to winner Josh Murray. The finale aired in July 2014.

Andi and Josh announced their split on January 8, 2015. Almost two months later, Andi took to Twitter to reveal she had decided to move to New York City. She then relocated to California in June 2020.

Andi has written two tell-all memoirs, It's Not Okay: Turning Heartbreak into Happily Never After as well as Single State of Mind, the first of which bashes Josh and how he had treated her during their short-lived relationship.

Andi had accused Josh of being verbally abusive, temperamental and controlling in her book -- which Josh in turn called "fiction."

"I was disgusted with myself for what I put up with. I was a strong, independent woman and I allowed [Josh] to be [emotionally abusive]. Now, I know I don't want someone jealous or controlling. I know what won't make me happy in [the future]," Andi told People in 2016.

"We all have red flags in our relationships that we don't see. Looking back and seeing those red flags was very cathartic for me. I realized our relationship wasn't the highlight of my life like I thought it was. So I took it off the pedestal and realized all was not lost."

Andi admitted in January 2021 that she would have made very different choices on The Bachelorette if she could go back and do it all over again.

"Honestly, if I had to pick a different person from my season it would not have been Nick, who was second. It would have been Chris Soules, who was third," Andi said on the Dax Holt and Adam Glyn's "Hollywood Raw" podcast.

"He was my buddy, my friend. I really liked Nick and Josh... Chris was like my safety blanket. He was the guy I could go on a date with and I knew that we would have a good time. There wasn't a ton of pressure."

Andi, who was single at the time, said she wouldn't want to do the show again, even though she really enjoyed starring on The Bachelorette.
