Good news, Bachelor Nation! Turns out, Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici’s January 26 nuptials might not be the only “I Do”s we see in 2014. A very well-placed source exclusively tells Wetpaint Entertainment that The Bachelorette Season 9 star Desiree Hartsock is looking forward to tying the knot with winner Chris Siegfried sooner rather than later!

While at least one tabloid claimed that SeanCat’s wedding announcement would spell a delay for Des and Chris’s big walk, that’s not the case. In fact, it’s only recently that Desiree has even agreed that she wants a televised wedding as both Chris and Desiree had previously expressed a desire for a small, intimate ceremony.

However, the source tells us that Desiree has now set into motion plans for that TV wedding we’ve been dying for. “The calls are being made,” the source informs Wetpaint. “She is ready to get married.”

Luckily, her groom-to-be is right on the same page. “They’re both prepared to make the commitment to each other. She’s been waiting to find the right guy for a long time and she and Chris have been doing great. I would not be surprised if they do it before the year [2014] was up.”

As Desiree herself has expressed in the past, she would like a June wedding…if the preparations can be made in time. But while the rest of the details may be up in the air, the budding designer has also said she plans on creating the dress herself. “Twenties-inspired,” is how Des has described it. “With beading or lace.”

Sounds like fashion fit for primetime!
