Details on the 'Bachelorette' couple's wedding bands.
Trista and Ryan Sutter had the first Bachelorette wedding in December 2003. Now, nine years later, Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum will be the second couple to walk down the aisle on national TV.

Celebuzz caught up with Trista while she was at the airport on Friday — was she on her way to join in on the wedding celebration?

“Maybe, I can’t divulge,” she said with a coy laugh.

“I think they are adorable . . . I’ve met Ashley and J.P. a couple times and she’s a sweetheart.”

Sutter even relayed some wedding planning advice to the blushing bride.

“We talked about our experience and the people I loved working with [for our wedding].”

Her one regret on having her big day in front of millions watching from home?

“They [ABC] gave us the option to have a videographer and we didn’t take them up on it! I do wish we had someone who had taken a home video that wasn’t available to the rest of the world,” Sutter said.

“It was the best night of my life . . . well, besides my 40th birthday party,” she said of the milestone she celebrated on Oct. 28.

Hebert and Rosenbaum, who got engaged in Fiji on the Bachelorettefinale in August 2011, are set to tie the knot on Saturday.

“I’ve been so excited to follow their relationship and out of all the couples, I always hoped that they would make it,” Sutter said.

As for her own marriage, the mother-of-two said staying out of the public eye in Vail, Colo. has helped with maintaining longevity.

“Marriage is work and if you don’t put work into it, it’s not going to work . . . Ryan and I are in the best place we’ve ever been. We’re very, very happy and focused on each other,” she added.

Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum’s wedding will air on ABC on Dec. 16.
