THE 'BACHELORETTE' BRIDE. ABC didn't announce the actual wedding date, but the special "The Bachelorette: Ashley and J.P.'s Wedding" will air Dec. 16, from 9 to 11 p.m., the network said Friday. Ashley Hebert and the Roslyn-reared J.P. Rosenbaum will become the second "Bachelorette" couple to wed in the show's eight editions, following the still-married Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter from season one in 2003.
