NEW YORK — "The Bachelor" star, Sonoma winemaker Ben Flajnik and bride-to-be Courtney Robertson were all smiles as they checked out wedding gowns at a bridal fashion show, but don't expect a save-the-date card from the couple anytime soon.

"Slowly but surely is kind of what we're preaching here. No rush," said the floppy-haired, 29-year-old Flajnik after sitting in the front row at the "Mark Zunino for Kleinfeld" runway show on Monday.

"It's working out nice, kind of normal. (We're) getting back to normal life," added Robertson.

The 28-year-old model was the most controversial constant on the 16th season of the ABC dating show. Her snarky comments and rude behavior toward the other contestants vying for Flajnik's affection had Flajnik and many fans questioning her character. In fact, Flajnik was so appalled that he briefly broke up with her after choosing her to be his bride.

The pair says they're happy to be out of the spotlight now, and they're taking their engagement one day at a time.
