Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens are getting married! The couple — who first got together in 2020 — got engaged this past February, and they’re currently in the midst of wedding planning.
Biles recently told E! News they’re hoping to tie the knot in 2023 during Owens’s off season. “We have some of my teammates that I’d be inviting. But other than that, it’s really close family, friends and people that have watched us grow throughout our relationship and will share that love on that day,” Biles said.
While answering a series of questions on her Instagram Stories on Aug. 3, Biles said the most stressful thing about wedding planning has been “locking in the date and getting the venue, but once that happened, everything has been smooth sailing.” She added, “I know exactly what I want, I have a great wedding planner.” For Owens, it’s been putting the guest list together.
On the flip side, Biles has really enjoyed “seeing the vision come to life.” She says, “That for me has been the most exciting, and putting like, my dream wedding board together.”
As far as their honeymoon goes, Biles and Owens still haven’t figured that out. “We’re just focusing on the wedding and trying to get through that first,” Biles revealed. “But obviously we know where we want to do it, we just don’t know timing because his season is a pretty long one. [We’ll] probably wait some time.”

Simone Biles’s Wedding Dress
Less than a month after getting engaged, Biles found her dress while shopping at Galia Lahav’s flagship store in LA “I had my best friend and my mom there and then once we found the dress, we did FaceTime Jonathan’s mom so that she could see it. But it was just a very, close tight knit group,” Biles told E! News. “I didn’t show all my friends because we still wanted it to be special for everybody. It was something I didn’t think I would go with, which was so crazy because I came in with a list of my likes, what I want it to look like and then I kind of did the complete opposite of that. But it was a fun experience. I really enjoyed it.
