Season 3 Bachelor in Paradise alums Carly Waddell and Evan Bass tied the knot on June 17th in Mexico. The celebrity couple initially planned to share their vows on Season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise, until the show was recently suspended from filming. According to Hollywoodreporter.com, Bass shared that the reality TV show guided him to “personal redemption” by meeting Waddell. The two became close on the show by talking on the beach. Let’s hope other alums of Bachelor in Paradise can have their own happy ending!

This celebrity wedding shows that not all time in Paradise is filled with negative drama. What are some unique ways to meet “the one”?

Cupid’s Advice:

Meeting “the one” sometimes happens by chance. Here are some events you should consider attending in hopes you can bump into your future partner:

1. Attend a “paint and sip”: You do not have to call yourself an artist to enjoy a paint and sip. Go alone and ask people for tips and advice on how to create a stunning painting. You might even get advice from your future partner! Check out venues that will be hosting one soon.

2. Attend a book reading: This is a great way to meet people interest in the same topics you are! A Q&A after the reading or a booking signing is the perfect opportunity to chat with others. You might be lucky enough to strike up a conversation with the right person for you! Search for bookstores in your area that host book readings.
