As if Tuesday night's edition of After the Final Rose wasn't shocking enough, Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham got engaged on the show, which wasn't totally unexpected. Not surprisingly, they're already discussing when they are planning on tying knot. In an interview with People, Arie and Lauren shared their wedding plans, and it sounds like they're going to make this thing official sooner rather than later. 

  • First of all, their proposal wasn't exactly a surprise to Lauren. She told the magazine that she knew it was coming.

    "Arie’s not good at keeping secrets,” Lauren said -- which we could totally understand. “He didn’t tell me, but he gave me hints!”

    And according to her new fiancé, Lauren told him that he was "four months late" on this, so it makes sense that he'd want to pop the question sooner rather than later.

  • So when's the wedding? Way sooner than you might guess. In fact, they want to tie the knot this year.

    “We’ve already been planning it, even before the engagement,” Arie said. “We want to do it quickly!”

    Whoa! That's a lot happening really quickly. Of course, Arie and Lauren met mere months ago, but then, after the finale, they were apart for a few months. That means they've also only been back together for a couple of months, and they want to be married just months from now? That's enough to make your head spin.

  • "Love is not always perfect," Arie added. Um, yeah -- after this Bachelor finale, we'd definitely agree.

    “Everyone finds each other in a different way," he continued. "It’s not always a fairy tale, but as long as Lauren and I have each other, we’re happy.”

  • No matter how you feel about Lauren and Arie together, you have to admit they're a beautiful couple.
