How excited is Kacie Boguskie to be getting married? Excited enough that she’s already picked out a wedding date and her dress!
The former Bachelor contestant and her song-publisher boyfriend, Rusty Gaston, became engaged the day after Valentine’s Day and wasted no time in finding that perfect gown, because the pair plan to tie the knot this May.
“We didn’t have anything to wait for, and summer is on its way, and summers in Nashville are unbearable. We didn’t want to wait until the fall, so spring was perfect,” Boguskie, 26, tells PEOPLE.
“We said yes to the dress and got it [Saturday] afternoon. That was awesome,” says the bride-to-be. “My mom and my sister and my aunt and three really close friends of mine came with me.”
