Former Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher and fiancé Jordan Rodgers have once again delayed their wedding due to restrictions as a result of COVID-19.
Former star of The Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher and fiancé Jordan Rodgers have once again delayed their nuptials as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Originally planning for a June 2020 ceremony, the pair initially delayed the union until May of 2021. With capacity limits still in place, the couple has postponed the wedding again. Despite the repeated delays, they have decided to keep the same venue.
JoJo starred in season 20 of The Bachelor, ultimately finishing the season as the runner-up. The 30-year-old Texan then went on to assume the titular role of The Bachelorette in season 12 of the spin-off. After careful deliberation, JoJo chose Jordan Rodgers as the winner, and the two were engaged in 2016. Rodgers, a former football player, is the younger brother of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Speaking with Us Weekly, JoJo shared, “This has been just a very fluid situation and one that I feel like Jordan and I have done a really great job of rolling with the punches and just realizing that a lot of it’s out of our control.“ She then went on to note that though she had been asked numerous times why the duo didn’t just move the venue, the pair “absolutely love[s] the venue that we chose“ and there is significant money tied up that is not worth sacrificing. While promoting her new shoe line with DSW, the star also explained that they have not yet chosen a new date due to their busy schedules: JoJo, returning to real estate, and Jordan, in sports commentary at SEC Now. “We’re at peace. We don’t want to sacrifice that day,” she offered. “Unfortunately, it is not what we expected, but we’re staying positive about when it does happen.”
After nearly three years of delays, JoJo shared that while the wedding venue is set in stone, her dress is not. Despite the original dress being delivered, the former real estate developer stated she had never picked it up nor had she yet seen it. “It will be three years old, probably, by the time I ever get to wear it. So, yeah, I might try on dresses again,“ the Dallas native and Bachelorette star explained. She also shared that she had never decided on another key component of her bridal ensemble: wedding shoes.
After a year of uncertainty, millions of couples have been forced to postpone, reimagine or even cancel their scheduled events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in dashed dreams and often immense financial strain. In addition to this increased pressure, long engagements are often regarded as a red flag or indicative of underlying pre-marital issues. Despite the duo’s multi-year engagement, fans noted that the couple’s continued commitment to one another and the decidedly zen demeanor shared by both parties are a sign that the pair will stand the test of time.
Unlike a number of ill-fated Bachelor and Bachelorette couples forged in the franchise, JoJo and Jordan appear to be an item that’s here to stay. Fans are eager to see the couple tie the knot, though the pair has made it clear in the past that preserving important moments off-camera is the key to their relatively drama-free relationship. As the country begins to reopen amid mass vaccination efforts and coronavirus entering the rearview mirror, it’s likely that The Bachelorette couple will be rescheduling for a date sooner rather than later.
