LeeAnne Locken and Rich Emberlin’s relationship has been a big part of the first two seasons of Real Housewives of Dallas, and after he proposed at the end of season two, fans are wondering if the longtime couple will get married in front of Bravo cameras during season three. They shied away from a dare to get married at D’Andra Simmons anniversary party, so when will they tie the knot?
Bustle is reporting that Locken and Emberlin have their wedding date listed as October 20, 2018, on the wedding planning site The Knot, but it isn’t clear if that is the “real” couple. Despite the fact that there aren’t many other details on the site, we do know the couple has been planning their wedding for a while.

They have been dating for eight years, and they got engaged last October at the Texas State Fair. Locken found the ring while playing a carnival game, and she says she was completely surprised.
“It was the happiest carnival prize ever,” Locken said. “I had no clue. Honestly, Rich surprises me every single time that he does something over-the-top, romantic and kind. I’m always like, ‘Wow your heart has such a huge capacity for love.’ The whole thing really just blew me away. I’m incredibly lucky.”
Locken said last year that a few housewives would be part of the wedding party, and everyone would be welcome at her reception. She added that as long as she and Emberlin were happy, it really didn’t matter who was there. She explained that they are each other’s family, and they haven’t had anyone else for almost nine years. At this point, they don’t need anyone else, and he is her soulmate.
She did say that Simmons would play a big part in her wedding, and she would “be in charge of everything.” Although since they filmed this season Simmons’ recently revealed that she and Locken are no longer speaking. Perhaps a wedding will be just what it takes to bring them back together.
In the season three preview, the Dallas housewives were talking about Locken and Emberlin’s relationship and wondering why they hadn’t set a wedding date yet. And, since they got engaged on camera, the question was if fans would get the chance to see them get married.
Locken says that she has always wanted to share her wedding day with the RHOD audience because she feels that she has taken them on the journey of watching her get engaged on camera. She actually wants the cameras to capture everything that day, from her nerves before the ceremony to her walk down the aisle.
But, even if they are actually getting married on October 20, that doesn’t mean it will air during season three because they have already shot the episodes. However, it could be a special, or be part of season four.
