We’ve heard so many rumors about Desiree Hartsock and Chris Seigfried’s wedding that it’s impossible to separate fact from fiction. So, we decided to straighten things out the only way we know how: by asking Desiree directly!

Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with the Season 9 Bachelorette on October 24 at the ULTA Beauty Kiss Kart, where she was raising money for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and instantly got down to business.

First on our list of questions: Is she still considering a summer 2014 wedding date? On Live! With Kelly and Michael in August, Des said she and Chris were targeting a summer date for their nuptials. But now, it seems the Bachelorette beauty may have changed her game plan.

“Hmm, summer? Um, I don’t know about that,” Des responded mysteriously. “After being here in Seattle during the fall, I’m really enjoying the change of season.”

Des and Chris moved to his Pacific Northwest hometown immediately following their public debut on the Season 9 “After the Final Rose” episode, and they’ve been settling in just peachily. So well, apparently, that Des is considering getting married in her new homebase!

“I don’t know yet,” Des equivocated, “either here or California. I still have all my friends in California.” Before going on the show, Des lived a nomadic life with her family before settling in Southern California, where she worked as a bridal stylist.

As for the exact location of her “I Dos,” she wouldn’t say, but she has been loving the parks in Seattle, especially Green Lake and Discovery Park. Perhaps Seattle’s Arboretum would be a perfect location for the perfect wedding? Just a thought, Des!

Will Desiree be attending Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici’s January 26 wedding? See what she told us! She also gave us the scoop on what kind of dress she thinks Catherine should wear!
