We may have just watched their wedding on TV, but "The Bachelorette" Season 7 star Ashley Hebert and her husband, J.P. Rosenbaum, have been married almost three weeks already!
The too-cute couple tied the knot on Dec. 1 for the taped television special "The Bachelorette: Ashley and J.P.'s Wedding," marking a rare wedded union for the franchise. (The last "Bachelorette" wedding occurred back in 2003 and don't even ask about "Bachelor" unions.)
While Ashley and J.P.'s TV wedding showcased every detail (the ring picking, the fittings for the bride's mermaid-style wedding dress, pole dancing lessons at the bachelorette party, toasted "Bachelor" alums at the reception), it's almost old news. Details from the shindig were leaked immediately, and pics and spoilers were posted online.
A few things we didn't see:
Ashley told In Style her custom Randi Rahm wedding gown -- which featured buttons down the back and hand0beaded shoulder detailing -- is now available for purchase from the designer. Rahm even named the design the Ashley Alli. "That is the biggest honor," Ashley told InStyle.com. "I was blown away when Randi told me at the wedding."
Rahm added, "I feel like I gave birth to their relationship, because I did the dress she was wearing when she met J.P., the dress she got engaged to J.P., and her wedding dress. It's a trilogy. The next dress I'll design? Her maternity dress!"
Whoa, slow down, sister!
Or maybe not. During Ashley and J.P.'s wedding special, the 28-year-old bride talked about living in the New Jersey college town that's halfway between the couple's workplace commutes to New York and Philadelphia. "Living in Princeton makes you want to have kids a lot sooner," she said.
The couple also told press reporters last week that they've postponed plans for a honeymoon until 2013 due to work commitments.
"We're still not 100 percent sure," J.P said, of their newlywed destination. "It'll be tropical, I'm sure."
One more thing that wasn't shown on TV? The livid reactions of the couple's 300 guests when the cocktail service unexpectedly switched to a cash bar during the reception. According to the New York Daily News, when ABC was finished filming the festivities, the network packed up their gear and the free booze immediately stopped flowing. (Talk about a buzz kill, especially for this boozy bunch!)
"There was an open bar until 8 p.m., then it switched to a cash bar," a source said. "ABC would only pay for the part they were filming. As the night went on and production stopped, so did the open bar."
Needless to say, the party ended soon after the free drinks did.
