‘Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe shops for wedding dress — with Jimmy Kimmel.

Kaitlyn and Shawn stopped by Good Morning America in New York City on Tuesday, and stole a few kisses in Times Square before heading into the studio, where they discussed their wedding plans.

“Bachelorette” Kaitlyn Bristowe chose Shawn Booth over Nick Viall in the dramatic season finale last night — and now that she’s engaged, it’s time to pick out a wedding dress.The Bachelorette suffered through series lows during 2014’s run with Andi Dorfman, but it bounced back in a major way with its recently concluded 11th season, starring Kaitlyn Bristowe.

The couple – who got engaged on Monday night’s finale of the hit ABC dating show – looked very much in love as they held hands and wrapped their arms around each other. Fortunately, Jimmy Kimmel was on hand to help with the shopping, accompanying her on a trip to LA’s Lovely Bride on Monday’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” The late-night host was an attentive companion, answering questions on behalf of the bride-to-be. Kaitlyn was a gorgeous sight in a skintight little white halter-neck dress with cut-out sections on the stomach and a high hemline to show off her slender legs. When store owner Rebekah asked, “Have you tried on dresses before?” Kimmel immediately replied, “Yes, I have.” When Rebekah suggested a gown in a pink hue, Kimmel joked, “I think that’s very rude.

But the most show-stopping part of Kaitlyn’s look was her $150,000 3.5-carat diamond engagement ring from Neil Lane, which is the most expensive ring on The Bachelorette to date. ‘Right now we’re just so excited to finally be able to hang out and do things in public, but more importantly we just want to spend some time with our friends and family first,’ Shawn revealed. ‘We’re going to do that for the next month – go to my hometown, go to her hometown, and kind of relax, and then start figuring out the long-term plans. ‘He’s never been to Vancouver, I’ve never been to Nashville,’ she admitted. ‘So we’re kind of going to do both and figure out where we want to be. Either one I’m not going to be upset with.’ ‘We’re really excited to be engaged and be cute,’ Kaitlyn said. ‘It makes little things more exciting now, to be out in public and just go get coffee, and that fun stuff.’ The reality star, who says she is ‘not good at keeping secrets’, insisted Shawn was always the one for her, but the Bachelorette tried to ‘confuse’ her about her feelings. ‘I think from night one I was like, OK!’ Kaitlyn shared. ‘Obviously you go through the show and I think they try and confuse you, but the whole time I just kept being like, “Nope, still thinking about Shawn.”’ Inevitably she was asked how it felt to come face-to-face with runner-up Nick Viall once again on Monday night during the After The Final Rose special. ‘I actually just sat there, he did most of the talking, it went exactly how I thought it would and it was done like that,’ Kaitlyn said as she snapped her fingers, eager to change the subject. Is that why you told her she can’t wear a white dress?” Kimmel and sidekick Guillermo later tried on a series of colorful bridesmaid frocks themselves, which prompted Kaitlyn to worry, “I don’t want my bridesmaids looking better than me.” And proving that he’s the perfect planner, Kimmel even presented a life-size cardboard cutout of Shawn for Kaitlyn to pose with before saying “yes” to the final dress. (Awkwardly, a cutout of runner-up Nick also tried to get in on the action.) Sex always has been a presumed part of the equation for the franchises, but they long have been loathe to directly suggest that the contestants consummate things on the show, instead merely hinting at such activity during evenings referred to euphemistically as “fantasy-suite dates.” But this season was different, as the episode in which Bristowe and Viall first did the deed featured an onscreen caption of Viall’s line, overheard from behind their closed bedroom door: “I want to know every part of you.” Speaking of those fantasy-suite dates, this season was the first time the show aired footage of the couples in their hotel room on the morning after the night of off-camera bonding.

The brunette said she wasn’t surprised to see Nick toss away the engagement ring he picked out for her after he was sent home in the limo, instead saying: ‘I thought it was kind of funny.’ Shawn, who never saw eye to eye with the two-time Bachelorette reject, teased: ‘A weak toss – that’s expected – I would have done overhand. This meant viewers got to see Viall shirtless and Bristowe in her sleepwear while they enjoyed room service and discussed the finer points of Canadian bacon (Bristowe is from British Columbia). The year’s journey began with the 25 men voting between Bristowe and her fellow Bachelor season 19 also-ran Britt Nilsson to determine which woman would be the focal point of the season — a gimmick attempted only once by The Bachelor, back in season six. Shawn said: ‘I just feel like we’re real people, and we don’t even feel like we’ve been on a TV show and every day it just gets stronger and stronger. Never before has a returning castmember become such a key figure — not to mention that Viall widely was seen as the villain of Dorfman’s season, in which he was also the runner-up.

In past seasons, a former contestant would often ask to join the fray and be permitted to participate for an episode or two, until the star got fed up with the pushback from the other competitors and showed the returnee the door. I guess it’s different, but I’m sure the people before us said the same thing, I guess we’re just going to have to wait and see.’ He briefly tried to claim to the hosts that he tried to play hard to get, although Kaitlyn quickly said that was far from the case, and then admitted that they secretly wrote letters to each other every day during the show. Since The Bachelor’s debut back in 2002, each rose ceremony — in which the star bestows flowers on the lucky contestants who survive to the next episode — has taken place at the end of each episode.

For Kaitlyn’s run, the rose ceremonies were seen well before each episode’s end, with the final scene instead featuring a fight or conflict that was concluded in the following episode in order to entice viewers to return.
