Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, the controversial couple fromÂ ABC‘sÂ The Bachelor, are finally tying the knot! The wedding is set to air onÂ ABC on March 8, but the ceremony is actually taking place today! Keep reading for all the romantic details…
Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney weren’t exactly America’s sweethearts after their controversial stint onÂ ABC‘sÂ The Bachelor.Â On the reality dating show’s season finale,Â Jason Mesnick sent Molly home and proposed to contestant Melissa Rycroft before publicly dumping her (on national television) a few weeks later and asking Molly for a second chance. Haters certainly had their doubts about the potential of the shaky relationship, butÂ The Bachelor couple has proved them wrong. Not only did they get engaged, they’re actually going through with the wedding!
ABC will air the nuptials on Monday, March 8th, but the couple is reportedly tying the night TODAY! The ceremony will be held outside at the beautifulÂ Terranea Resort, situated on the coast of Rancho Palos Verdes, California. Among the couple’s guests:Â Bachelorette couples Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski and Trista Sutter and husband, Ryan. Naturally,Â The Bachelor‘s host Chris Harrison will be in attendance as well, hosting the lavish wedding special.
As for the wedding details, don’t expect anything too traditional.Â ”We don’t want an hour-long ceremony and assigned seating and fancy food,” Malaney says. “I’d rather have people walk away saying, ‘That was the most fun, badass wedding I’d ever been to!’”
If you’re interested in buying the Seattle-based couple a present to mark the occasion, they’re registered at Macy’s and Crate and Barrel. The soon-to-be Mr. and Mrs. Mesnick are planning a romantic honeymoon at a resort in the Caribbean.
