[Spoiler Warning: This story reveals the ending of Rachel's The Bachelorette season, so if you don't want to know, please stop reading].
The Bachelorette's thirteenth edition will wrap up on Monday, August 7 with a three-hour event -- the two-hour finale and then the one-hour After the Final Rose special -- that host Chris Harrison teases as "dramatic" and "unbelievable."
According to Life & Style sources, Rachel was a total mess the night before the proposal because she was "in love" with both of her Final 2 bachelors.
"The fairy-tale moment that Rachel was dreaming of her whole life was a complete ordeal. It was the proposal from hell," a source told the magazine.
"She even considered walking away from the whole thing because she was terrified of making the wrong choice."
However, Rachel has gushed to numerous media outlets in recent weeks that she is madly in love with her season's winner. Not only is she engaged, but Rachel plans to marry her fiance some time next year.
"Rachel finds herself in an emotional predicament... as she enters the final week of her journey to find love. Who will get the final rose?" ABC teases.
According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, Rachel handed her final rose to Bryan, a 37-year-old chiropractor from Miami, FL. Bryan allegedly proposed marriage to the Bachelorette with a sparkling Neil Lane diamond engagement ring.
The Bachelorette's Final Rose Ceremony reportedly filmed at the San Vicente de la Sonsierra Castle in Spain.

Rachel's romance with Bryan probably doesn't come as much of a surprise to Bachelor Nation since he's been a frontrunner from the very beginning. Bryan is older than most of Rachel's other suitors, and his maturity shined when other guys were focused on drama in the house.
However, before The Bachelorette premiered on May 22, Carbone claimed Peter, a 31-year-old personal trainer and business owner from Madison, WI, actually popped the question to Rachel at the end of her journey to find love.
Carbone later corrected himself, however, revealing that Peter finished Season 13 in second place.
"When it gets down to the finale and the final two guys, the last breakup is the most heart-wrenching of all time," an insider told Us Weekly. "They couldn't say goodbye, and even when they did, there were so many tears from her."
The insider alleged that after Rachel dumped her runner-up, he "collapsed and sobbed."
"She was torn until the very end," the insider told Us. "It's brutal to watch this breakup -- worst breakup in years on this show."
Peter's exit will probably tug at his fans' heartstrings, but there is a good chance he could become the next The Bachelor star.
Peter probably lost out on having Rachel in his life because of his inability to fully let go inThe Bachelorette process. He has been guarded, doubtful and concerned. While Peter expressed he's falling in love with Rachel, he hasn't professed genuine love.
Peter has also been reluctant to pop the question because he got to know Rachel in such a short period of time. He called the idea of getting down on one knee "terrifying," adding that he only wants to get engaged and married once.
Rachel made it known she wants a proposal at the end of the process and not just a boyfriend, so it will be interesting to see if Rachel truly dumped Peter or had to let him go because his feelings for her were behind.
But before Rachel must make that heart-wrenching decision, she allegedly eliminated Eric, a 29-year-old personal trainer from Los Angeles, CA, in third place.
Eric has come a long way on the show since he's never been in love before. Rachel noted that he became "a new man" in this process because he's vulnerable and open with his feelings. Eric fell in love with Rachel and told his family that she embodies everything he'd want in a future wife.
Eric -- whose Fantasy Suite date concluded with the couple playfully sharing a bathroom in the morning -- appreciated how Rachel challenged him, and in turn, Rachel has said she loved his positive outlook on life and fun personality. However, Rachel discovered she had more of a friendship with Eric than anything.
Next week's finale will kick off with Rachel enjoying two more overnight Fantasy Suite dates with Peter and then Bryan.
"She asked about religion, whether they'd move to LA, where she wants to live. She asked whether they wanted kids and how many, and if they wanted to send them to public or private schools," a source recently told Life & Style.
Not only did Rachel allegedly ask the guys about their credit scores, the insider added, "She also asked them, 'How much [money] do you make?'"
In a recent preview for the finale, Rachel was shown agonizing over her final decisions.
"I just feel like I'm making a big mistake," Rachel admits in the clip. "I don't want to repeat what I've done in every single relationship... I want a proposal, [but] am I forcing myself to do something that I'm not ready for?"
Rachel's friend Astrid Loch from Nick Viall's edition of The Bachelor leaked some information that is consistent with Carbone's predictions for the end of Rachel's The Bachelorette edition.
Astrid appeared to accidentally spoil the ending during a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight in which she said of Rachel and her fiance, "She's planning a party. There's After the Final Rose and then they are going to Dallas to have a party there. He gets to meet all of her friends and non-Bachelor people, too. And then they're going to Miami after that to have an engagement party there, too."
Rachel's hometown is obviously Dallas, TX, while Bryan's family currently resides in Miami, FL, as shown during a recent episode of The Bachelorette. Bryan also practices in Miami.
