It may take some time before Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley tie the knot. The couple, who got engaged in 2013, has reportedly delayed their nuptials yet again.

The former Real Housewives of Orange County star was supposed to marry Smiley on May 23 but they decided to skip the big day. Now a source close to the 36-year-old reality star reveals that they have put off the wedding again but apparently it’s not a case of getting cold feet.

“The reason that the wedding has been postponed so many times is not because they have doubts that they are meant to be together, but because they are both working on a lot of projects right now,” a source told Radar Online. “Gretchen just launched a purse line and she and Slade are pitching several different ideas to various networks for projects that have them both on camera and behind-the-scenes.”

“They are definitely still getting married and are very much in love,” the source added. “Why else would they do Marriage Bootcamp together?’

According to Rossi, producers of The Real Housewives of Orange County have even  asked her to come back on the Bravo series. “They’ve already asked me to come back and do some stuff,” Rossi told  in June “I never say never, but at this point I have a lot of great projects going on in my life and I’m excited about moving on to the next thing. At this point, they’d have to pay me a lot of money!” 

“They want to get all of this stuff ironed out before entering into a marriage, but the wedding is inevitably happening,” the source said.  “Lately they have been getting a lot of pressure from their close friends to do it already. Gretchen cannot wait to be Slade’s wife and, when the time is right, they will have their huge lavish wedding. This is what they both want.”
