The couple, who met on season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise, got engaged on June 17, and it will be shown on the upcoming season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise. As for wedding planning, Iaconetti is calling the shots. “I’m a little bit more controlling and I’m definitely the planner of the two of us, but everything will be approved by him,” she said. “I think he’ll actually be pretty into it.”

Haibon is also completely OK with letting his fiancée take the reins. “As our relationship has shown, it’s a lot of her ideas, but I’ll add to that. Especially for a wedding, I feel it’s very important for the woman involved, I want her to have the best wedding she possibly can. Her wants trump mine,” he told Us.

“Tanner and Jade have been two people we look up to,” Haibon said, adding that they love their parenting. “They’re madly in love. They have such a good and healthy relationship.”

Iaconetti added that she and Haibon love the “playfulness” between Bristowe and Booth. “I think they’re the most compatible as far as the way [they] interact with each other.”
