Wells Adams Asked Sarah Hyland's IRL and On-Screen Parents for Their Blessings Before Proposing
So Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams are getting married, and honestly, I have so many questions, including but not limited to: IS CHRIS HARRISON OFFICIATING? The Modern Family actress and Bachelor in Paradise star have been dating since October 2017, and yeah, their love story might just make you weep at its near perfectness. They started flirting via DM, as Sarah told us in an interview for her Cosmo cover, and then they started sending text messages and voice memos (WAH), calling and FaceTiming each other, and finally they met IRL and went on their first date.
A few years went by and our dude popped the question with a crazy-expensive engagement ring last summer in a move that was straight out of BiP. He even asked for permission to pop the question from Sarah’s parents, both IRL and onscreen, which is way cute. “When my fiancé proposed, he asked my mom and dad for their blessing. Then he also hunted down Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell [Sarah’s parents on Modern Family] for their blessing,” Sarah said on Modern Family’s farewell special.
Tragically, none of us are invited to Sarah and Wells’ upcoming wedding (unless you are, in which case, hello/why are you reading this?), but we do have plenty of A’s to your Q’s about what to expect, especially since Sarah's out here talking about wedding postponement. Starting with...
Will It Be Televised on ABC?
No! At least, that’s the vibe I’m getting from Wells telling ET, “I think they know I would never do that.” Plus, only a handful of Bachelor Nation weddings have actually been televised, and since Wells was never the show’s leading man, chances are ABC wouldn’t throw down for his big day.
So, Like, When Is It?
Not for awhile, unfortunately. Sarah clarified her plans on Monday's episode of The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons Ever!, and she and Wells aren't taking any chances on a full-scale wedding with the coronavirus pandemic still surging.
"We have no plans as of right now," she said. "We've put all planning on hold."
"All of my family is on the East Coast, so for them to fly out...and just ages [of the guests] and of course with my health risks, we want to be as safe as possible."
It's also worth mentioning that Sarah herself is immunocompromised, so postponing seems like an all around smart idea.
As of August 2019, Wells said he and Sarah didn’t have a date in mind, so hopefully they didn't get too far into planning before postponing: “Sarah is going to be, like, Pinterest boards and vision boards and a lot of Elmer’s glue is going to be involved,” he said. “So I think we’re just holding off on that.”
Of course, there’s also a chance that the wedding might not happen at all. Wells hilariously told Chris that he’s already filed for divorce because Sarah won’t leave his puzzles TF alone. (LOL.)
“She was in the bathroom when I finished [the puzzle] this morning and then I lost my mind,” Wells explained to Chris on Instagram Live. “She comes trotting out [and asks], ‘What’s wrong, babe?’ And I go, ‘Just go look. Just go look over there.’ And she went and looked and then came back and had like this sh*t-eating grin on her face and she had stolen the last piece. And we’re not married yet, but I’ve already filed for divorce!”
Who’s in the Bridal Party?
So many people! Sarah revealed her “bride tribe” on Instagram, and it includes a bunch of her non-celeb friends plus actresses Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Newbrough, and Ciara Robinson. Tragically, though, Wells’ Bachelor buds don’t appear to be in the picture. And I mean that quite literally—here is the picture in question:
Also, look how cute Sarah’s “Will you be my bridesmaid?” boxes were?!
So, Is Chris Harrison Officiating?
Nah. But he is going to be a guest! Wells confirmed as much to E! News when he said that Chris is the one surefire member of Bachelor Nation who will be in attendance. “Let’s be fair: If it weren’t for Chris and a couple of the other executive producers, I would’ve never even met Sarah. So, Harrison is an integral part of my happiness in general and I love him and now I get to hang out with him every summer, so I want him to be there.”
FYI, Chris did offer to officiate and Wells turned him down: “I want him to just have fun and have a good time and not have to be burned by any of that stuff. He was nice enough to offer, but I wouldn’t do that. He’s my friend. I don’t want him to have to work at my wedding.”
Cool-Cool-Cool, Let’s Talk Location and Dress
Thus far, we don’t have details on what Sarah’s wearing (and we likely won’t know until the actual wedding goes down). Meanwhile, the location is still TBD, but anyone else think they should get married in Paradise? Same.
What’s the Food Situation?
Wells and Sarah are truly a couple to aspire to be because they’re opting to feed their guests via a taco truck. According to Wells, the truck would be symbolic in a way because he made her shrimp tacos on one of their first dates. Also, tacos are just practical! He told Us Weekly, “I want a taco truck there for late night when everyone’s just trashed. Who doesn’t want a taco?” Genius.
