The Bachelorette‘s Trista Gives The Bachelorette‘s DeAnna Wedding Advice
"I really have hopes that they'll make it to the alter like we did," she recently told PEOPLE.
After hanging out with the newly engaged couple, Sutter says their connection was "completely palpable."
"They were all over each other -- in a good way," she said of Pappas and Csincsak's recent visit to the Sutters' home in Vail, Colorado. The meeting was taped for a special episode of The Bachelor-Bachelorette series, but Pappas also took the opportunity to get advice from Sutter.
"My biggest piece of advice is to get away from the craziness and the hype," Sutter said. "They waited so long to be together, but it's really important to focus on yourself and not believe the hype of the show. Yes, the show introduced you, but take what the show gave you and try to make it your own."
Pappas and Csincsak, who plan to marry May 9, 2009, were especially interested in Trista's advice on their wedding -- and whether it should be televised like Trista and Ryan's December 2003 wedding, which was seen by more than 17 million TV viewers.
"You need to decide for yourself -- and for your family -- what's right," she said. "We didn't scream, 'We want to get married on television!' But it was presented to us and I honestly don't think that we would be living in Vail had we not taken the opportunity that we had. So, to each his own."
With Csincsak living in Breckenridge, Colo., and the Sutters down the road in Vail, the meeting between the two couples is likely the first of many as Pappas plans her big day.
"I'll be supportive of her if she needs my help in any way, whatever she decides," said Trista, who's enjoying raising son Max, who turns 1 July 29, while Ryan continues his career as a firefighter. "I'm 100 percent content with my life in Vail, as I know Ryan is, and I can't see us living anywhere else." -- Scott Huver Kevin Mazur/WireImage
