In recent years, Bachelor Nation has had a bad reputation for producing too many unsuccessful couples. Couples from The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor In Paradise often failed to make it to the altar after getting engaged on the show.

Despite this recent downward trend, there were quite a few Bachelor Nation weddings in 2023. Many of these couples were from older seasons, back when the success rate was just a bit higher. However, other Bachelor Nation members have since found love with individuals outside the franchise, which is also nice to see.

These eleven Bachelor Nation couples got married in 2023, and we ship them all!

Clare Crawley & Ryan Dawkins

Clare Crawley had a pretty disastrous journey in Bachelor Nation, but she finally found her happy ending in 2023. On The Bachelor, multiple seasons of Bachelor in Paradise, and the short-lived Bachelor Winter Games, Clare repeatedly had her heart broken. When she became The Bachelorette, Clare thought she had found her true love in Dale Moss—she even abandoned the show to be with him. Unfortunately, their relationship was a mess and they eventually split for good.

After walking away from Bachelor Nation, Clare met Ryan Dawkins, who has never been on reality TV. Though the couple initially were planning a larger wedding, they eventually eloped in February. On social media, the two seem very happy, and Clare and Ryan are expecting their first child together via surrogate,

Colton Underwood & Jordan Brown

Colton Underwood was originally the lead of The Bachelor Season 23, but the former football player had other plans in life. Long after his season, Colton came out as gay, and Bachelor Nation accepted it with open arms. Shortly after, Colton revealed that he had actually met a special man named Jordan Brown.

In May, Colton and Jordan officially tied the knot and got married in a touching ceremony. Colton looked as happy as ever, and Bachelor Nation fans were elated to see him finally find true love. After the wedding, Colton officially added Brown as the first half of his surname. The couple are currently living their best lives as newlyweds, and we love to see it!

Hannah Godwin & Dylan Barbour

Hannah Godwin and Dylan Barbour tied the knot at the end of August after getting engaged during Bachelor In Paradise Season 6. The couple was an instant fan favorite, and viewers were pleased to see them find a rare happy ending in the franchise. Since their time on BIP, Hannah and Dylan have regularly shared updates on their relationship with fans via social media.

The couple got married in Paris, and the event was no small affair. Many fellow Bachelor Nation cast members were in attendance, as well as several from other reality shows as well. Fans referred to the event as the Bachelor Nation royal wedding, and to be honest it should have been!

Caelynn Miller Keyes & Dean Unglert

Caelynn Miller-Keyes and Dean Unglert were another BIP Season 6 couple that married in 2023. The couple tied the knot in September in Colorado, near where Dean grew up. In honor of Dean’s late mother, who passed away from breast cancer, both Dean and Caelynn changed their surname to her maiden name, Bell.

The theme of the wedding was summer camp inspired, due to Caelynn’s childhood love of going to camp. It was small but romantic, with each guest having their own cabin nearby. We love a rustic Bachelor Nation wedding!

Sarah Herron & Dylan Brown

Sarah Herron was introduced to Bachelor Nation on Sean Lowe‘s season, and it was clear from minute one that she had a heart of gold. It was hard to watch her have her heart broken again and again, and clearly, none of the Bachelor franchise men she dated were worthy of her.

Unfortunately, Sarah has had an enormously difficult year in 2023. Though she found love with non-Bachelor Nation man, Dylan Brown, the couple suffered a devastating miscarriage when Sarah was 24 weeks along. It was absolutely heartbreaking, but the pair are still hopeful that they will get the chance to be parents via IVF. Despite their struggles, Sarah and Dylan got married in September in the Grand Canyon, of all places. We wish the couple the best of luck in the new year.

Serena Pitt & Joe Amabile

Serena Pitt and Joe Amabile were a surprising couple to come out of Bachelor In Paradise Season 7, who have been going incredibly strong since. The couple officially got married back in 2022, in a simple courthouse ceremony. However, Serena and Joe promised they would be back with a bigger wedding, and they did not disappoint.

The couple wed once more in September in a ceremony in Charleston, South Carolina. Neither Serena nor Joe had any important ties to Charleston, but the duo fell in love with the location after visiting. Over 100 guests were in attendance, and some of them, of course, were fellow Bachelor Nation stars!

Becca Kufrin & Thomas Jacobs

Becca Kufrin and Thomas Jacobs got off to a rough start. The pair met on Bachelor in Paradise Season 7 and quickly developed feelings for each other. However, before the finale, Becca decided to leave Paradise alone. But in a surprising move, she and Thomas reconciled after the show and were in a full-blown relationship by the time the season aired.

Thomas and Becca initially planned to get married in early October this year, but after unexpectedly getting pregnant, the couple decided to push their wedding to 2024. Becca and Thomas welcomed an adorable baby boy in September, and then, in yet another twist, the couple got married in an intimate courthouse wedding. Though the pair still plan to have a larger wedding in 2024, they’re already happily married.

Ben Flajnik

Former Bachelor lead Ben Flajnik has been away from the franchise for a while—a decision he couldn’t be happier with. Though he got engaged at the end of his season, it was a short-lived relationship, and Ben spent several years single.

In November, Ben surprised his followers with an Instagram post revealing he got married in October. Ben has been tight-lipped about the identity of his bride, referring to her only as his “best friend” in the post. While Ben may not be a major player in Bachelor Nation, it’s still nice to see that he’s found happiness.

Kenny Braasch & Mari Pepin

Kenny Braasch and Mari Pepin also got engaged during BIP Season 7 and got married in November in Puerto Rico, one of the world’s most romantic places. Despite their 15-year age difference, Kenny and Mari fell hard for one another during Bachelor In Paradise. Their relationship has been solid since.

Mari explained that she and Kenny specifically chose to get married on 11/11, since it is a lucky number that can mean good things. The couple tied the knot in Puerto Rico, which is also where Mari’s family is originally from. The wedding was a somewhat small affair, with only 65 guests in attendance to watch the couple say their vows.

Teddi Wright & Nicholas Meyers

Teddi Wright made her Bachelor Nation debut on Clayton Echard‘s season of The Bachelor. She didn’t find love with Clayton, nor did she find love on Bachelor in Paradise Season 8. Teddi quit BIP in week 2, cut her losses, and left Bachelor Nation for good,

Instead, she found love with Nicholas Meyers. The couple got engaged in April and tied the knot just a few months later, in November. Teddi and Nicholas had an intimate Napa wedding, and Teddi’s decision to look for love in the real world and not in Bachelor Nation clearly paid off.

Tia Booth & Taylor Mock

Bachelor Nation fans first met Tia Booth on Arie Luyendyk‘s season of The Bachelor, and some would argue that she dodged a bullet when he sent her home just before hometowns. Tia tried her luck again on BIP Season 5, where she unsuccessfully pursued Colton Underwood. As Colton eventually came out as gay, things obviously wouldn’t have worked out between Tia and him.

Fortunately, Tia found a wonderful partner in Taylor Mock, a friend of her’s who isn’t part of Bachelor Nation. The couple got engaged in April 2022, and then, in a twist, surprised fans in June with news that they were expecting their first child. Their son was born in December 2022, and nearly a year later, Tia and Taylor got married this November.
