Cupid's Pulse Article: Former ‘Bachelor’ Ben Higgins Feels ‘Disconnected’ from Celebrity Wedding PlanningCupid's Pulse Article: Former ‘Bachelor’ Ben Higgins Feels ‘Disconnected’ from Celebrity Wedding Planning

By Kayla Garritano

Will the wedding drama ever stop? In the Tuesday, November 1 episode of Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After? Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell made another attempt at wedding planning, then quickly moved on to to other things to avoid more planning. According to, the little bit of planning they did included Lauren’s sister, Mollie, helping the celebrity couple with their wedding registry. Ben immediately became defensive over everything and didn’t want anything that they don’t need. Mollie and Lauren ignored most of Ben’s negative comments and continued making the registry. As the episode continued to show them arguing and disagreeing with things such as houses and what they “don’t need,” Ben took a moment to admit to the camera, “I’m very disconnected from wedding planning.”

This former Bachelor is feeling isolated from celebrity wedding planning. What are some ways to involve your partner in wedding plans?

Cupid’s Advice: 

A wedding is a joint ceremony, where you learn a lot about your partner and deal with the craziness of planning a wedding together. You want to make sure neither of you feel isolated in the planning, especially if you both want to be involved. Cupid will tell you how you can plan your wedding together:

1. Take them on the hunt: When you’re testing out cakes, or trying out the food, or picking out your wedding registry, make sure your partner is there with you. Show them the journey you’re going on, and let them experience what you’re experiencing. Your partner should be allowed to try what it is that you’re trying, and have the same opportunity to plan out the wedding that you’re both a part of.

2. Let them have opinions: When you have a dream wedding in mind, you don’t want to let anyone else’s opinions in. Well, what if your partner has something to say about the situation? What if they prefer something different? Make sure their voice is heard, and that you consider what they say. You should learn to talk to each other about what you’re thinking. If you don’t, that may foreshadow some problems in the marriage.

3. Compromise: Marriage is about compromise, as is a wedding. You are taking two lives and melding them into one. You are creating a new life for yourself the minute you say “I do” to each other. Do something for each other that seems fair. Take something out of the wedding that you love in exchange for putting in something your partner loves, and they should do the same for you.
