While we are assuming that at some point Gretchen will be taking that next step with her boyfriend Slade Smiley and becoming an actual housewife instead of just a housefiancee, at this point the “Real Housewives of Orange County” star is willing to take her time when it comes to wedding plans. After all, she and fiance Slade Smiley have waited for quite a while in order to be engaged, so they are just as willing to be patient when it comes to making that all important life long commitment to one another. It is for this reason that Gretchen tells Parade Magazine in a new interview with she and her man really aren’t bothering too much to rush into a big wedding, especially when they can take their time to ensure that they get the ceremony that they want:
“We definitely haven’t decided on a date. It took us four years to get to the engagement, so I don’t know how long it will take to get to a wedding, but we have babies on the mind, so we haven’t decided if we’re going to go the baby route first or the wedding first. Planning a wedding is a big undertaking and I like every last little detail to be perfect. Slade’s never had the big hoopla wedding either, so I think its going to be something that he’d really like to do, and so we’re just going to plan it when it’s the right timing. We’ve talked a lot about having a destination wedding, and we talked a lot about Europe because we love it there, so we don’t know yet. We’re just enjoying this time now.”
So could we end up seeing a Gretchen spin-off series someday all about her wedding? Considering that her co-star in Tamra Barney was recently handed the honor, it has to be in the realm of possibility. We’ll just have to wait and see whether or not she can secure the same gig as their wedding day approaches.
