Proving once and for all that she's moved on, Melissa Rycroft --famously dumped by 'Bachelor' cad Jason Mesnick on live television --married her new guy, hunky insurance agent Tye Strickland in Mexico on Saturday.

The brunette beauty wore a gorgeous strapless Alfred Angelo gown for the 30-minute sunset ceremony in front of close friends and family at a home on Isla Mujeres, a small island near Cancun.

Rycroft  --a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader -- was barefoot as her father walked her down the aisle, and  after she and Strickland exchanged their vows, an instrumental version of the Monday Night Football theme song played in the background.

Rycroft, 26, and Strickland, 28 met three years ago in their hometown of Dallas, Texas but broke up before Melissa was chosen to be a contestant on The Bachelor last year.

They reunited after she was famously dumped by Mesnick, and became engaged four months later.

Rycroft and fans were shocked when Mesnick  told her on The Final Rose live episode that he had picked the wrong woman ( he went with runner-up Molly Malaney)  but Rycroft quickly rebounded and joined the cast of ABC's Dancing With The Stars and became a recurring features correspondent on Good Morning America.

Rycroft later said being being jilted was "one of the best things that has happened to me in my life."
