The reality TV stars were supposed to get married last year, but were forced to postpone their nuptials due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In a September episode of The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever!, the bride said they were biding their time for the perfect day.

"We were supposed to be married three times by now and haven't yet," Gates said with a laugh. "My brother asked me over the weekend, 'Are you married yet? Have you just not went ahead and eloped at this point?' And I'm like, 'No, we're waiting it out.'"

At the time, the couple said that they wanted Bachelor host and ordained minister Chris Harrison to do the honors.

"I will show up whenever and wherever this celebration is," Harrison, 49, said during the episode. "Because it's going to be a great wedding."

Gates and Gottschalk met while filming season 4 of Bachelor in Paradise in 2017. The two announced their engagement in 2019.

Speaking to PEOPLE in July, Gates said she decided to "turn lemons into lemonade" when the pandemic forced them to alter their wedding plans. After postponing the big day to a tentative date in the middle of 2021, Gates said she had been using the extra time to "really prepare" and perfect every last detail before walking down the aisle.
