JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers are enjoying their journey to the altar.

“We’re still planning on next year. We’re just taking our time,” Rodgers, 28, tells PEOPLE. “We’re enjoying this time in our life and getting to date each other.”

The Bachelorette couple got engaged on the season 12 finale in August and moved in together in Fletcher’s hometown of Dallas. Although the wedding isn’t until next year, 26-year-old Fletcher says she’s already picturing the big day.

“I think about my wedding dress and seeing Jordan for the first time and how amazing that will be,” she tells PEOPLE. “I know it will be what I dreamed it would be.”

Wedding bells aren’t all the star has been daydreaming about, though.

“I keep envisioning babies,” she says. “And I’m like, ‘Wait, JoJo, pump the brakes! Do this in the right order!’ ”

For now, the love birds say they are focusing on the here and now.

“There’s such a big difference between the happiness we felt during the surrealness of the show and the happiness that we have now,” Rodgers says. “We’re growing together and it’s so much more real.”

Fletcher adds: “We want to keep the promises we made to each other. I’ve never once doubted my decision.”
