Former "Bachelorette" Trista Rehn and soon-to-be husband Ryan Sutter can't wait to get away from it all on their honeymoon.

Their wedding will be broadcast on ABC in December, the finale of three episodes dealing with the preparations and their "bachelor" and "bachelorette" parties.

The couple attended Sunday night's American Music Awards with Chris Harrison, host of ABC's "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" reality series.

"I became buddies with these guys and now they're getting married," Harrison said. "From Day 1, she was the first person who got it right."

Sutter, chosen by Rehn from 25 suitors, said he plans to return to his job as a firefighter in Vail, Colo., in January. He wasn't sure what his bride would be doing.

Although the whirl of publicity and appearances has been fun, Sutter is ready to get out of the limelight.

"I don't think anyone can live under the microscope their entire life," he said. "It's really stressful," he said.
