We knew that Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham were planning to get married this year, but apparently it might turn out to be a quickie wedding. Arie and Lauren have considered eloping, and judging by the way fans feel about this newest Bachelor couple ... well, it might not be a terrible idea.

  • In an interview with People magazine this week, Lauren admitted that she and Arie have definitely been talking about tying the knot ASAP.

    “We want to get married soon, and we also talked about eloping,” Lauren said, and Arie mentioned that they might even decide on "running away to Vegas." What?!

  • But eloping isn't the only thing they've discussed. In fact, they're up for a traditional wedding, too -- maybe even a televised one.

    In fact, Arie said that they want to get married in the evening (or at sunset) with tons of flowers surrounding them. So maybe a garden wedding? He added, "We talked a little bit about maybe doing a TV wedding if that works with our timeline.”

  • Arie is thinking pretty big here. We wonder if ABC has even mentioned a TV wedding yet. Considering how negative people's opinions are of him right now, would anyone even watch?

    It's hard to imagine that people will forget what they witnessed when he broke up with Becca, and let's just say that almost everything about him online right now isn't exactly helping his image. We'd be interested to see how many fans would actually want to tune in to witness Lauren and Arie's vows.

    Oh, and Arie also mentioned that Becca is not invited to their wedding -- as if she would even want to attend.

  • We'll have to wait and see how things play out -- IF these two make it down the aisle at all.

    We could be wrong, but Bachelor relationships don't always have the best track records, especially in dramatic circumstances like this one. Maybe Lauren and Arie will live happily ever after, following a wedding on ABC officiated by Chris Harrison -- or maybe they'll be dating other people by the end of the year. Time will tell!
