Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici Announce Wedding Date! When Is It?

We've been waiting for months and weeks and days for Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici to tell us what we want to know: When they're getting married! And they must have heard us thinking it really loudly, because the gorgeous The Bachelor Season 17 couple appeared on Good Morning America on Monday, October 14 to announce the big news.

Mark your calendars, everyone! Sean and Catherine will be tying the knot on January 26, 2014. "I just want it to be fun and show our love. And other than that it's going to be a beautiful wedding," Catherine said. And from what the couple said, we can look forward to a traditional ceremony with a big party afterwards.

Sean and Catherine announced after the March 11 Bachelor finale that they planned on getting married on television, as Season 1 Bachelorette couple Trista and Ryan Sutter did in 2003, Season 13's Molly and Jason Mesnick did in February 2010, and Bachelorette 7's Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum did in December 2012. At the time, Sean announced that they would be getting hitched this summer. "We've kicked around some ideas," Sean told People earlier this year. "It [the wedding] could be this summer. We talked about an outdoor wedding in the L.A. area. I think that will be fun. We want it to be a big party!"

But unlike other Bachelors and Bachelorettes, Sean and Catherine will be taking an even bigger leap back into TV: They're getting married LIVE! While the Sutters, Mesnicks, and Team Cupcake all aired their weddings on the tube, days after their wedding so that it could get a little fluff from editing, Sean and Catherine's wedding will just be straight up on.

But then Sean got wrapped up with Dancing With the Stars and SeanCat barely had enough time to hang out together in their new Los Angeles home, let alone plan a wedding. A source close to the couple told E! that they were going to postpone the wedding until 2014. We know plenty about what they're thinking: We've obsessed over their guest list, the location, the dress, the mood... Seriously, we care a lot about this.

Last week, Sean and Catherine jetted up to her Seattle hometown for an engagement party thrown by Cat's friends and family, and it seems like everything is on track for their future, with roots planted in Dallas near Sean's family.

Now that we know the when of it all, the countdown can officially begin! Congratulations and best wishes to Sean and Catherine! We're sure it'll be the best one ever. Now, what should we wear to the party...
