Here comes the bride! Kaitlyn Bristowe tries on wedding dresses with Jimmy Kimmel… and promises to give him $1000 if she splits from Shawn Booth.

Jimmy Kimmel invited The Bachelorette’s Kaitlyn Bristowe onto his show on Monday to go wedding-dress shopping, in honor of her engagement to Shawn Booth.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.Viewers of “The Bachelorette” finale were reminded of that fact as winner Shawn Booth told the story of his first declaration of interest in Kaitlyn Bristowe: a Snapchat image of her face with the promise/threat, “Don’t worry Kaitlyn … I’m coming for you.” Back then, about six months ago, Bristowe was just a “Bachelor” contestant getting dumped by Chris Soules on national television.

When the bridal stylist asked what Kaitlyn was looking for, the 30-year-old said she wanted something that was ‘not poofy, lacy, sexy, but not too sexy’.“Bachelorette” Kaitlyn Bristowe said yes to her last suitor standing, Shawn Booth, after he presented her with a square-cut Neil Lane engagement ring during Monday’s season finale. He said that, in the “20 percent chance they’ll get married,” Bristowe will need a dress, so he and Guillermo Rodriguez joined Bristowe to pick out a gown. “We don’t want this to be like a Kardashian wedding; we want this to be classy,” Kimmel told the store attendant. 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.

Booth snapped a shot of “Sad Kaitlyn” on his television screen and sent it to his friends with that white-knight promise to save her from singledom. “When I saw her not get a rose from Chris, I was looking at her and she was so upset, there was something inside that just felt crazy, so I took a picture,” Booth said on last night’s “After the Final Rose.” “I sent that to my buddies and they probably thought I was crazy.” They probably did. While Bristowe and Booth have stayed together since the show wrapped earlier this spring, the real test of their relationship is about to begin now that they can finally flaunt their love in public. When she suggested dresses that weren’t white, he alluded to the criticism Bristowe has received for being sexually active on the reality show. “Have you been watching the show?

Kaitlyn was a gorgeous sight in a skintight little white halter-neck dress by Elizabeth And James, with cut-out sections on the stomach and a high hemline to show off her slender legs. But hey, it all worked out: Booth dealt with his jealousy over Bristowe dating other men on a show that’s all about dating 25 men at once, and now they’re thrilled to be public about their relationship. 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. Still, last night’s reveal of everything that happened before Booth and Nick Viall ever met Bristowe got me thinking about the preconceptions we have of the people we date, long before we’ve even met them. Bristowe tried on a series of dresses as Rodriguez and Kimmel took tequila shots before they decided that they, too, should try on bridesmaid dresses. “I don’t want my bridesmaids looking better than me,” joked Bristowe after seeing them in a few options.

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 you can’t wear a white dress?’ he asked, as Kaitlyn giggled. ‘It’s really flattering in the bust area, really brings out your chest hair.

Kimmel had Bristowe and fiance Booth swear on a stack of Us Weekly magazines that they would still be in a committed relationship in one year — or else they would pay Kimmel $1,000. 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.

Another contestant, Ian, thought so, too — and seemed sorely surprised to find a strong rather than broken woman: “I came here to meet the girl who got her heart broken and was devastated by Chris Soules,” he said shortly before leaving the show, “not the girl who wanted to get her field plowed.” Viall was the only one to base his pre-first impressions of Bristowe on actual interactions: “We got to know each other pretty well, probably as well as you could before meeting someone,” he told host Chris Harrison last night, saying that the two of them starting talking about a month before Bristowe was the Bachelorette. “The odds were stacked against us,” Viall said of the unlikeliness of the two of them actually being able to explore a relationship. “But at the same time there’s a part of me that kind of expected it.” So many expectations! And while it may be easy to tack Bristowe and Booth’s names onto the list for good measure, we think these crazy kids just might make it to the altar. Jimmy couldn’t help but crack a joke when he emerged in a purple sequined gown, saying: ‘I feel like if Prince got married, this is what his mother would wear to the wedding.’ Jimmy and Guillermo’s third and final look was a pair of tangerine dresses, with the talk show host also sporting the black leather leggings Kaitlyn arrived at the store in. From the moment Booth stepped out of the limo on Night 1 at the mansion, he made it clear to Bristowe that he was there for her, not for “Bachelorette” runner-up Britt Nilsson.

On Monday, Kimmel also played a game of “Which K(C)aitlyn said it,” asking the audience to discern Kaitlyn Bristowe quotes from Caitlyn Jenner quotes. In the introduction to the game, he mocked Kanye West’s reaction to seeing Jenner for the first time. “It’s hard coming face-to-face with your father-in-law’s cleavage,” said Kimmel.

But something also tells me that Bristowe would be just fine if she “ended up alone” (Harrison’s words, not mine) after her run as the Bachelorette. 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.

And those conceptions you have of people start before you’ve had much interaction, as they did when contestants had to choose between Bristowe and Britt Nilsson in the first episode. 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. Shawn – who also revealed he only watched the parts of the show in which he and Kaitlyn were together, and not when she was with other men – also had a message for his future wife’s cyberbullies. ‘I would just say, don’t be so quick to judge somebody in a situation that you’ve never been in or you can’t relate to, because nobody can understand what it’s like to go through what we went through unless you’ve been there before. ‘It’s a crazy, crazy experience, the emotions are real.

Amen.’ While they aren’t planning on walking down the aisle any time soon, Kaitlyn revealed there will definitely be a few familiar faces from The Bachelorette at her wedding. In fact, a 2014 study found that looking up a date on Facebook prior to meeting him or her can increase anxiety, particularly among those who are already socially anxious. Of course, there are valid reasons for looking people up, such as to avoid catfishing and any obvious deception: “On one side, it’s safer to know what to expect and what kind of person you’re getting ready to involve yourself with,” a Hanover College student told USA Today in a story on the Facebook study, “but I think on the other side, it may reveal too much about them and skew your perception.” As with many things in dating, there are no rules.
