Emily Maynard and Jef Holm have narrowed down their choice of wedding dates and have announced they are thinking of a time in "early Spring 2013." The couple has endured many rumors about the durability of its relationship, but it appears they are proving doubters wrong.
"We haven't locked anything down yet, but we just know that's the time frame we want to do it," Holm revealed to Life & Style magazine. The couple has been together since meeting on "The Bachelorette," which hasn't been very long, but they are eager to cement their relationship status.
Though they were forced to keep their relationship under wraps until the show's finale aired, Emily was all smiles during the special live finale.
"Jef and I have been looking forward to this day for so long and are so excited to start our lives together. I've always believed in great love and hoped I'd find it one day," she said.
Now the couple has been very public with the relationship, even going on a trip abroad for Holm's job. He recently moved to North Carolina to be closer to Maynard and her daughter, Ricki.
Wedding planning is apparently going well, and Maynard does not seem to be too worried about the details.
"I want it to be super chill: good music, good fun, lots of family. I just want him there," the bride-to-be revealed on "Good Morning America."
That attitude is making it much easier to actually plan the special day.
"I have an idea of what the whole thing is going to look like. I'm just glad I found the guy. The rest will come," Maynard told Life & Style.
"It's been so easy," she explained. "I'll show Jef the ugliest thing [dress] in the world, and he'll be like, 'Whatever you want, I want.'"
