Pepin chatted with Jared Haibon and Dean Unglert on their “Help! I Suck at Dating” podcast to share some tidbits about the state of her relationship with Braasch. The “Bachelor in Paradise” star noted things were pretty crazy earlier this year as she was diving her time between Maryland, where she lived, and Chicago, Illinois, where Braatsch lived. Then, he encouraged her to take part in the Miss World Puerto Rico pageant, which meant she needed to spend a lot of time in Puerto Rico too.
Not only was life quite busy as Pepin prepared for the competition, but one rule for holding the title was that she could not be married. Given that, the “Bachelor in Paradise” couple did not start planning their wedding until they saw how she did in the pageant. Pepin shared she ended up in seventh place in the competition, and she was “really happy with how it went.” Her family is originally from Puerto Rico, and she loved that she “got to spend a lot of time back home.” Once that was over, she moved to Chicago, and once both Pepin and Braasch were done with their existing leases, they got an apartment together in Chicago.The Wedding Planning Has Officially Started View this post on Instagram

Pepin admitted moving in with Braasch was a little “nerve-wracking,” as he had never been down that road before. It seems they both adjusted smoothly, though, and one of the biggest challenges they encountered was her desire to get rid of most of his kitchen stuff and bring in her own higher-quality tools. That would certainly suggest the “Bachelor in Paradise” couple has transitioned quite well, if that was one of the toughest parts of the transition.
Now, Pepin said she has “just started thinking about the wedding planning.” She is still in the very early stages of planning, and she has already found it stressful, as she’s not sure where to start. Despite those worries, Pepin noted during a separate segment of the podcast that she and Braasch are thinking they will have an October 2023 wedding.
One of the guys asked if she would ever consider eloping to Las Vegas. She said Braasch “totally would” do something like that, but she wasn’t so sure. She added, “I think I’d do the courthouse thing and not tell anyone,” throwing a big party later, but Vegas isn’t necessarily her style. When it was suggested they were moving forward relatively quickly on getting married, compared to other “Bachelor in Paradise” couples, Pepin explained that, for them, “there’s no reason to wait.” They had to wait until after the pageant to pin anything down, but “Now that that’s over, we can get on with it.” “Bachelor in Paradise” fans love this pairing and will be eager to get additional wedding updates in the months ahead.

Bridezilla is slammed as ‘ridiculous’ after uninviting a friend from her wedding over +1 drama
BRIDEZILLAS have been known to dictate every little detail of their big day.
One bride-to-be shared the ridiculous reason why she uninvited her friend from her wedding.2A bridezilla uninvited her friend from her wedding for the most ridicukous reason
A Reddit user shared a Facebook post which detailed the crazy rule a bride implemented which meant her friend's partner was left off the guestlist.
The anonymous post was written by a bride-to-be who decided to enforce a strict plus one rule at her wedding.
She explained: "We want this day to be full of love and happiness for everyone, and celebrate all of the long-term couples in our lives, as well as ourselves, so we were only inviting committed couples."
However, the bridezilla failed to assign her childhood friend a plus-one, despite her pal being in a 10-year-long relationship.Read More LifestyleSNIDE BRIDE My bridezilla cousin called me selfish for cutting my hair before her weddingBRIDE & PREJUDICE Bridezilla banned groom’s grandmother from wedding & people are MAD
"She’s been with her boyfriend since we were 17, but has always said that they have no interest in getting married because her parents went through a bad divorce when she was a child," the bride wrote.
Despite her friend's boyfriend being the reason the bride and groom met in the first place, the poster seemed unwilling to waive her crazy rule.
The bride continued: "My friend then started shouting down the phone that she’d been with her boyfriend for over a decade without any breaks, which was not the case for half of the married couples in our friendship group."
The bride also mentioned how she and her fiancé had only been together for a year, but said "when you know, you know."Most read in LifestyleNUPTIAL NOTES Bride shares controversial list of demands for her wedding guestsWAL-SMART I'm a Walmart insider - the code that shows you if you're getting a good dealFASHION FORWARD I’m plus-size - I love my bikinis, they go up to size 26 and cup size G/HTOTAL STEAL I'm midsize and have found the perfect dress to hide my lower tummy
She concluded: "I’m going to have to disinvite her now after her attitude towards us, but I’m worried that some people might take her side and also not come out of support for her – she’s always the victim."
Reddit users took to the comment section to share their thoughts on the bride's outrageous call.
"The bride showed her exactly who she is: a kook. Her poor husband-to-be should be aware of just how crazy this person can get when running on the creaky hamster wheel of her mind," wrote one reader.Read More on The US SunSTABBING SHOCK Author's fourth wife Padma Laksmi spotted in New York after shock stabbingSKINNY KIMMY Kim shows off skinny waist & ribs in shocking video after weight loss fears
Another person suggested: "I'd politely decline to attend and say maybe we'll be on better terms by her next wedding."
"This bride will be divorced in a few years and then karma will kick her in the butt when she isn’t allowed to bring a plus-one boyfriend to someone else’s wedding," commented another user.2A bridezilla refused to invite her friend's long-term partner to her wedding because they weren't marriedCredit: Getty - Contributor
