Capitalizing on the recently concluded "Juan-uary" Bachelor madness-which included the premiere of Juan Pablo's current Bachelor season, Trista and Ryan Sutter's 10-year-wedding-annivesary-slash-vow-renewal-special, and Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's televised wedding spectacular-last season's Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock announced that she's this close to setting her wedding date.
In an interview with Cupid's Pulse, Hartsock revealed that she and Chris Siegfried are looking into throwing a fall wedding, and like Sean and Catherine, she's not opposed to letting millions of TV viewers in on her big day. "We're open to having it televised and still planning for the fall," Harstock said.
She also revealed more details about her two wedding dresses, which she will be collaborating on with bridal design favorite Maggie Sottero. "Both dresses will reflect my personality in different ways," she teased. "I love to dance and be comfortable, so my reception gown will cater to that, while the ceremony gown will be more romantic."
Even if Hartsock and Siegfried choose to forgo an ABC special (which would most likely be paid for by the network), they'll still have a Bachelor franchise connection on their big day. Living in Seattle, the couple have become very close to fellow Bachelor alums Jason and Molly Mesnick.
"They have been so great to us, and it's nice to share a common bond," Hartsock said. "We'll get together with them whenever possible for dinner or even just to hang at their house with Riley, their adorable baby girl."
As for life with Siegfried off the cameras, Hartsock admitted things have been great. "From our time getting to know each other on the show as well as seeing each other while the show was airing, we had a great idea of what it would be like living together," she explained. "We work well together because we already disclosed all of our little quirks."
