Bring out the champagne because it’s time to celebrate! According to UsMagazine.com, Bachelor alum Britt Nilsson is officially going to celebrate a celebrity wedding with boyfriend Jeremy Byrne! The celebrity couple started dating last year after Nilsson’s split from Brady Toops, another alum of the hit reality TV show, The Bachelor, and shared news of their celebrity engagement via a series of Instagram posts of the ring and the couple laughing and kissing in excitement. Nilsson wrote in the caption, “”WE ARE ENGAGED!!!! I’m over the moon!!! The man of my dreams and the most godly, amazing, fun, life-giving, silly, intelligent, wonderful best friend I could ever ask for is my future husband!!!! I have been dreaming of this day forever!! Thank You Jesus!!! Wooo hooooo!!!!! I had no idea it was coming and it was the best day of my life! I love you forever Jeremy Byrne!!!”

This controversial Bachelor alum has said goodbye to the single life and hello to a celebrity wedding! What are some things to consider before getting engaged?

Cupid’s Advice:

When it comes to getting engaged, it can be hard to know when you’re ready as a couple! Cupid is here with the top three things you should consider before popping the questions or saying yes when your partner gets down on one knee:

1. Do you have the same goals?: Ideally in a long-term relationship you two would be looking for the same things and have a similar vision of the future. If you know for a fact that your ideas of the future differ greatly but you’ve never really sat down and worked that out, definitely take the effort before you move forward with an engagement. If you’re both on the same page you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that ring on your finger doesn’t mean you have to give up your dreams or future plans.

2. Are you ready for a forever commitment?: There’s no doubt about it, a wedding and an engagement are a huge deal, but marriage itself is an even bigger one. Ask yourself honestly, am I ready for a lifetime commitment to one person? Analyze your answer and share it with your partner. Admit if you don’t feel ready for that big step right at the moment or confess that you’ve thought it through and think that’s a good next step to take in the future.

3. Do you both want to get married?: This one seems like a no-brainer, but you’d be amazed how many people feel pressured into proposing or to saying yes to an offer of marriage just because they never sat down and talked about their feelings toward marriage in general, and also specifically for them at some point in the future. It’s perfectly possible that for either you or your partner, getting married just isn’t a priority, and if that’s the case, you need to have a mature discussion about it where you communicate your wants and needs effectively.
