Their Wedding Date Is Coming Soon! Des and Chris recently sent out an adorable save-the-date video announcing their wedding would be happening in January 2015. While the actual date of the big day is conspicuously missing from the announcement, at least we know that Des will be a married woman by February 1 at the very latest.
And Decided on California! In a March interview, Des said that while they’re still making Seattle their home, the wedding won’t be in the Pacific Northwest. “It will be in California, since that is where I call home,” Des said.
Des Designed Her Own Wedding Dress Des has a serious eye for design, so she teamed up with Maggie Sottero Designs to create her perfect wedding dress. Scratch that — dresses. The 28-year-old designed a “vintage-inspired sheath gown” for the ceremony as well as a dress for the reception that she can “get down on the dance floor” in. Both dresses are already finished and waiting for the big day.
Des Will Be Wearing Lace and Diamonds at Her Wedding After Des and Maggie asked fans for suggestions on what her dress should look like, Des picked “lace and some bling” as her favorite. Des also reveals Nicole Richie as her celebrity style crush, so perhaps we can expect Des to rock something a little edgier than we’re used to.
Des Will Have 8 Bridesmaids Talk about a wedding party! In a recent Q&A on her blog, Des revealed her Maid of Honor and bridesmaids have all already been put on notice “and there will be 8 of them.” So far, we only know two of them (fellow Bachelor 17 alum Daniella McBride and show producer Amy Bean), but we’re betting we’ll see plenty more gals from Bachelor Nation in the procession.
Desiree’s Bachelorette Party Was in Vegas That’s right, when it came to her bachelorette party, Des stuck with the tried and true. She and a posse of ladies, including Molly Mesnick and Daniella McBride, took the Vegas strip by storm. They partied poolside, hit up the Britney Spears show at Planet Hollywood, and then partied some more at the SLS club. Quite the send off for our Des.
Their Honeymoon Will Be Tropical It makes sense that the newlyweds will want to head somewhere tropical for their honeymoon — after all, they did get engaged in Antigua. So we weren’t all that surprised when Des wrote on her blog recently that the newly-married couple will celebrate their first days as Mr. and Mrs. somewhere “tropical like Hawaii or Fiji.” Aloha.
