Ben Higgins & Lauren Bushnell Want Their Wedding on Live TV -- by the End of the Year

There is not a phrase a true Bachelor fan loves more than "live televised wedding," and praise be unto whoever you give praise to, because those words are currently being applied to Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell. Inquisitr is reporting that the two have been in talks with network execs about airing their nuptials for all of us to see -- and according to the Hollywood Gossip, Ben and Lauren are banking on a wedding by the end of the year.


During an interview with Indiana University's What's Up Weekly, Lauren said she's "ready to at least start planning." She also said that maybe, those plans could be ready to go by the end of the year. That, plus rumors of wedding mags delivered to their door and chats with Neil Lane, has us thinking we should start prepping our wedding outfits now.

More exciting (though much less official) are the rumors that Ben and Lauren might be planning out a live affair with the network. The only proof of this is Ben saying once that they'd maybe be open to it, plus vague "sources" "confirming" a "meeting" with the network. 

Of course, Ben already turned down the offer once (on live TV, in the most awkward After the Final Rose in history), but their reasons then were sound: They wanted their friends and a ceremony and a party and some semblance of a plan. Now, we think they're out of excuses. They can get all those things in addition to some ABC cameras -- and honestly, it'd be the least they could do after months of us showering them with love and Instagram likes.
