Reality Star Melissa Rycroft Engaged

Although the final rose she received from The Bachelor‘s Jason Mesnick turned out to have thorns, reality personality Melissa Rycroft has announced that her days of hoping for one long-stemmed flower from a beau are over, exchanged for the promise of a bridal bouquet.

Relaying the happy news on Good Morning America, the former Dancing with the Stars contestant confided to fans that she has accepted a June 26 proposal from her friend-turned-fiance, Tye Strickland.

According to People magazine, the prospective groom asked for his love’s hand in marriage amid the reverential atmosphere of White’s Chapel in Southlake, Texas. Wanting to share their joy with those closest to their hearts, the betrothed twosome dined with their parents at Brio Tuscan Grille at Southlake Town Square before enjoying a festive evening with friends at Cretia’s restaurant.

The bride-to-be and her fiance have not divulged a date for their impending I do’s.
