“We want to get married soon, and we also talked about eloping,” said Lauren in a teleconference, according to People.

“We’ve talked about running away to Vegas,” Arie added.

“We’re talking about an evening wedding or a sunset wedding. Lighting is important. Lots of flowers. We talked a little bit about maybe doing a TV wedding if that works with our timeline,” he added.

There is one person who won’t be invited – the person he broke off his engagement with: “Becca, she’s not invited,” he said.

“We’re so ready for this. Lauren told me I’m four months late on this proposal, and I wanted to give it to her and I wanted everyone at home to share in it,” he said.

The two say the wedding will happen sometime this year. Lauren will move to Scottsdale to be with Arie, and is planning to work with him in real estate.

“We’re both very excited about marriage and starting a family,” she said.

Arie previously proposed to Becca during the final rose ceremony. Weeks later, Arie decided to break up with Becca and did it in front of the cameras, causing plenty of backlash.

He’s impulsive and he doesn’t think through his actions.”
