Carly Waddell and Evan Bass’s Wedding: Dress, Rings, & More!


Carly Waddell and Evan Bass might not have had the “Bachelor in Paradise wedding” they planned over the weekend, but it certainly looked like paradise!

The Season 3 couple tied the knot on Saturday, June 17, surrounded by a bunch of familiar faces from the franchise — including officiant Chris Harrison.

And yes, we have all of the details and even some photos for you!

Many fans worried the ongoing investigation into alleged “misconduct” between Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson might put an end to the previously-scheduled filmed nuptials.

However, we remained hopeful that “Cevan” would get the happy ending they so deserved, and it really happened!

Though no official photos have been released yet — they’re likely holding onto those until it gets closer to the TV special — we do have some sneak peeks.

A lot of that is thanks to Kaitlyn Bristowe, whose Snapchat was chock full of photos of the guests on their travels to and from Mexico.

In addition to the former Bachelorette 2015 star and fiancé Shawn Booth, Carly’s bestie Jade Roper and her hubby Tanner Tolbert ventured south of the border for the event.


Also on the guest list? Two of Kaitlyn’s other Bachelorette exes, Jared Haibon, and Brady Toops.


Of course, you can count on the Canadian goofball to make a joke about the perceived awkwardness of the situation.

Though they didn’t show up in these pics, some other fan favorites were also in attendance.

TMZ obtained photos from the ceremony showed the aforementioned guests in the audience, as well as newest Bachelor 2017 couple Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi.

Also there? BIP fave Ashley Iaconetti and her other Paradise ex-flame, Wells Adams.


As you can see in the pics, the event all took place on the lawn overlooking the beach and ocean, and strands of Mexican pom poms were hung from trees for decoration.

The bride looked stunning in a strapless fit-and-flare nude gown with white embroidery, created by Israeli designer Idan Cohen.

The dress, dubbed the "Mercedes," first made its runway debut at the couturier's 2017 bridal fashion week show.

Unlike that presentation, however, they removed the shoulder cover to leave the bride's shoulders bare.

Meanwhile, her groom Evan sported a dapper gray suit.

They each wrote their own vows, which they read aloud for a cumulative 20 minutes, before exchanging rings and sharing a kiss on the altar.

Speaking of the rings, E! News reveals the father of three’s is a straight, wide platinum band estimated to be worth between $1200 and $1500.

As for his new wife, hers is a channel-set eternity band with diamonds, valued at a whopping $50,000!

As you might guess, these came gratis, courtesy of Neil Lane, who also designed her engagement ring.

Now, this is all just a preview of what we’re sure was a much more elaborate and fun day.

Thankfully, it was all captured on film and we’re sure to see it play out on our TV screens some time later this summer.
