Clare Crawley has come a long way since joining The Bachelor franchise, and she’s now preparing for a wedding.
Clare announced her engagement to fiance Ryan Dawkins in October, and now she’s provided more insight into her wedding plans.
The Bachelor Nation star revealed she’s having two wedding ceremonies and explained how her mom played a part in the decision.
Along with addressing her ceremony, Clare also answered questions about her wedding dress preferences and gave her followers advice.
Clare also hinted at there being more to the story regarding why she left her season of The Bachelorette early.
Bachelor Nation viewers will recall Clare ended her season early after falling head over heels for Dale Moss.
Clare and Dale got engaged on The Bachelorette Season 16 and had an on-again-off-again relationship before calling it quits for good. Clare has now moved on with her new love Ryan.

Clare took to her Instagram Stories for a morning Q+A.
One fan wanted to know when Clare and Ryan’s wedding would be.
Clare replied with a wifey sweater photo and wrote, “We are having 2 ceremonies! First one is a small intimate one so that my mom can be there and not overwhelmed. The second one, we have the date chosen, but need to make sure the location is available.”
The Bachelorette fans will recall that Clare’s mom is battling Alzheimer’s and Dementia, so Clare wants to be sure to accommodate her with a small ceremony.

Clare shared a photo of a long white gown with lace in the back as she exclaimed, “I love a good back on a dress!”

Clare also got vulnerable when offering advice to a follower who wanted to know how to navigate being single and lonely.

She healed from the loneliness by making rituals and routines of stuff she loves and by practicing lots of self-care. Clare also noted doing things for others helped her to overcome the struggle as well.
