Wedding planning

Mari and Kenny have revealed to fans they have not yet set a wedding date. However, the couple has decided on where they want to tie the knot. Mari and Kenny have decided they will be getting married in Puerto Rico.

The bride-to-be has family there and it would make it easier for them to have all of her family attend if that’s where they have the ceremony.

Mari also revealed she wants a tropical-themed wedding.

Tons of fans and fellow Bachelor alums commented on Mari and Kenny’s posts celebrating their one-year anniversary. Jesse Palmer was one and noted how he couldn’t understand why they weren’t sweating during the proposal.

Many others offered well wishes including Zac Clark, Tyler Smith and tons of fans.

New couples are forming

The summer of 2021 proved to be a great season for Bachelor in Paradise. There are many successful couples to come from Season 7. Some of those are of course Kenny and Mari, Joe and Serena, Noah and Abigail and Becca and Thomas.

Three of these couples are already engaged. Fans are hoping and waiting on Noah to pop the question to Abigail. Do you think he will anytime soon?

As for Mari and Kenny, perhaps they will start wedding planning more now that they are past their one-year mark.

Congrats to them for making it last.
