The reality star furtherconfessed that he and his bride to be are still torn as towhether they should televise the wedding versus have a private ceremony. "We're trying to see if we still wanna do the TV side of things or if we want to do it privately," he confided.
Regardless of the directionthe couple decides to go,they have a lot of help with the planning -- and it sounds like they might need it, seeing as Arierevealed it "could be a big wedding."
"Our parents are helping, too," he disclosed. "Lauren's mom is being a big help, andthe planning's going good. We always say we want a small wedding but then we keep looking at the guest list, and it keeps growing more and more everyday, so it could be a big wedding."
Arie added that the couple did recently meet with Marriage Boot Camp counselors Dr. Ish and Dr. V from the hit WE tv series in the hopes of getting some tips on how to make their marriage work in the spotlight.
"We went to lunch with them just to hear about their show, and they gave us a lot of good advice," he recalled. "It's always good to get advice. We've also met with Lauren's pastor at her church. So its good to really lean on people that you know can shed some light on how to help your relationship."
The auto racer, who has driven around both Kim Kardashian West and Bachelor host Chris Harrison, took his fianc for a spin on the track over the weekend to give her the "full experience."
"Racing is something I've done my whole life," he said."The Stadium Super Truck series is insane. Actually, Lauren got to take a ride yesterday during qualifying, and that was really exciting to have her experience that, so now she's definitely got the full experience."
