Before they tie the knot in Nashville this November, Ben Higgins and fiancée Jessica Clarke are one step closer to nailing down the details for their ceremony’s dinner menu.
The pair recently sat down for a food tasting, as they explained in an interview with People published Friday.
"We believe some of the nights best remembered are when we can eat, drink and celebrate," Ben told the outlet. "Our hope is that our guests (and us) will have a night of great food and great drinks."
According to the former Bachelor and his future bride, their nuptials — planned by Fete Nashville — will feature a meal by Chef’s Market with personally curated dishes.
"Their food was delicious," Ben enthused. "And their prep and planning bring us peace and comfort knowing everyone who attends will leave full and satisfied."
Ben and Jessica’s culinary samplings included sliders, pizzas, flavored popcorns, and such desserts as milk and cookies and mini pie pops.

Ben proposed to Jessica in March 2020 after nearly two years of dating. While promoting his book “Alone in Plain Sight,” Ben opened up about his relationship with the gorgeous esthetician during an exclusive interview with BachelorNation.com in January.
“There’s a curiosity involved. She just wants to understand me, and she wants to know me. She wants me to never feel alone,” he said at the time. “She lets me know that she’s always going to be there for me. There’s a freedom to our relationship that’s beautiful.”
While their original 2020 wedding was canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Ben said that he and Jessica — who are based in Denver, Colorado — would exchange vows this year no matter what.
“Yeah, we’ll definitely get married in November — with or without people. We’re choosing not to live together and to not be intimate until marriage. It was a really good plan until our wedding got pushed back,” he said. “And now we’re still choosing to do that. So, no matter what, this is the year. [Abstinence] is healthy for us and it’s going to be the best thing for us, but we’re making it official in November. That’s when we’ll get married.”
