  • The "Love Is Blind" season six finale with the couples' weddings will be released on Wednesday.

  • Business Insider spoke to a show rep to find out more about the weddings — from guest lists to cake tastings.

  • Couples don't have a say in the venue, but they can help pick out the menu.

The season six finale of "Love Is Blind" has almost arrived, which means it's finally time to find out which of the couples are ready to say "I do" after falling in love "sight unseen." 

But what actually goes into planning a "Love Is Blind" wedding, which occurs less than a month after contestants first meet each other in the pods, and how much say do the couples get on their special day?

Business Insider spoke to a representative from Kinetic Connect, which produces the show, to give you the full scoop on how these weddings come to life — and what happens if the couple says "I don't" once they get to the altar.

The representative told BI that all the couples who get engaged on the show are "very involved, for the most part," in planning their own wedding days.

For the proposal, the representative said male contestants are "provided with various rings" and select one for their soon-to-be fiancée. "Love Is Blind" creator Chris Coelen told Variety that they can choose from "10 or 12 different styles and colors" of rings or propose with a ring they've brought from home.

Women are also given the option to propose with a ring, although both Coelen and the representative BI spoke with said no female contestant has ever made that request.

For the wedding, the representative told BI that producers are informed if each couple has a specific color scheme in mind. And, as seen on the show, the women and men get to go shopping for their dresses and tuxes.

"They go cake tasting, they play around with the menu and food options, they're involved as they can be," the representative added.

The representative said producers also take into account cultural and traditional requests, such as with Deepti and Shake's ceremony and Jarrett and Iyanna's request to jump the broom in season two.

Couples don't have much of a say in their wedding venue, however, because specific spaces are required to fit all of the lighting and film crew. Due to COVID-19, the "Love Is Blind" weddings also had to be much smaller during season two.

"Most of these folks do at least walk down the aisle," the representative said. "Whether they say yes or no, we all find out together, but they want their friends and family there. So they have their guest list they provide to us."

The representative told BI that every guest must sign an appearance release and no phones are allowed during the wedding to prevent spoilers from leaking before the finale airs on Netflix.

And what happens if one or both of the contestants decide they don't want to get married after all? The representative said guests are still allowed to stay and eat and drink "if they'd like."

While a wedding is pivotal for many couples in the real world, the representative told BI that it's typically not as important for the "Love Is Blind" contestants.

"I think if you speak to any of them, most of the cast will say they're so focused on making that connection that the wedding — unlike in real life — is kind of a backdrop," they said. "It isn't quite as important to them as making sure they're making the best decision for themselves."
