Look Back on All of The Bachelor’s Televised Weddings
Lights, camera, vows!
Congratulations are in order for Bachelor in Paradise’s Evan Bass and Carly Waddell, as E! News has confirmed the season three couple swapped vows in June 17 in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, with ABC’s cameras capturing the ceremony. While many familiar faces from the franchise were in attendance on the happy day, it’s yet to be determined how and when their televised nuptials will air amid the allegations of misconduct that shut down production on BIP’s fourth season
But Evan and Carly’s wedding isn’t the first televised ceremony Bachelor Nation has allowed viewers to attend, with the first one airing in 2003.
Of course, we’re talking about Trista and Ryan Sutter’s nuptials, which were the first to air on ABC and brought in huge ratings for the network.
Since Trista and Ryan’s big day, five more weddings have been filmed as specials, with Chris Harrison officiating all but one of the ceremonies.
Look back on all of The Bachelor’s televised weddings and find out if all the couples have stood the test of time:

The season 17 couple swapped vows in January 2014, with the ceremony taking place in Santa Barbara. The theme for the wedding was “Grown Sexy,” as Sean and Catherine were waiting until after their wedding to have sex for the first time. One surprising guest? Lisa Vanderpump, as she and Sean competed on Dancing With the Stars together. The wedding special brought in 6.2 million viewers. The couple welcomed their first child, a son named Samuel, in July 2016.
Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul
While viewers watched the only couple to make it out of Bachelor in Paradise season one wed in the season two premiere the following summer, it turned out the wedding wasn’t actually legal.
“When we came back, we were supposed to start the paperwork,” Marcus revealed, “but she stalled.” He then accused Lacy of ghosting him, saying she just “vanished.”
