Matty J and Laura Byrne might have to go back to the drawing board after Matty blurted out his “secret” idea for their wedding ceremony.
The ‘Bachelor’ couple arrived on the Birdcage’s pink carpet for the AAMI Victoria Derby Day and stopped for a chat with their pal (and Matty’s sort-of ex), former Bachelorette Georgia Love.
After the trio congratulated each other for their recent engagements — with Georgia set to tie the knot with her Bachie beau Lee Elliott, the man who won her heart in season two of The Bachelorette — the talk turned to wedding plans.
While Matty and Laura haven’t been in too much of a rush to get hitched after welcoming their baby Marlie-Mae Rose in June, they talked Georgia through a few of their wedding ideas.
“I threw out a spanner yesterday and I was thinking, ‘Hey, instead of having a big wedding, why don’t we have a surprise kind of engagement type party wedding…” said Matty, before Laura jumped in to point out the giant mistake he was making.
“It’s not a surprise when you tell everyone right now,” she said.
At which point, Matty quickly backpedalled and promised, “I didn’t say that!”
Laura then cheekily dobbed her partner in for “changing his mind every day”.
“One day it’s like, ‘Let’s just not get married and have a second baby’ and the next day it’s like, ‘Let’s have a massive wedding’ and then, ‘We’re eloping’ so who knows?” she said.
Georgia then said she was definitely planning a huge wedding herself, and joked, she just needed to scramble together a lazy $250,000 for her nuptials.
We’re just glad these three cool cats made a chat between exes about engagements, marriage and babies somehow not awkward at all?
