Can you believe it’s already been a full year since Chris Siegfried proposed to Desiree Hartsock for the Bachelorette Season 9 finale? Yep, time really flies when you’re counting the seconds (as we are) until the couple announces their wedding date. In honor of the special milestone, the couple is taking a sentimental vacation — and is revealing new details about their in-the-works wedding!

Chris and Des flew to Antigua on May 6 to revisit the romantic island where Chris popped the question to his lady love. Chris proposed back on May 7, 2013, although the touching scene didn’t air on ABC until August 6. “Happy Anniversary to my lifelong dance partner!” Des captions a pic (at left) on Instagram of Chris twirling her. “@chrisrsiegfried I love you so much!”

Just before leaving for the trip this week, the happy couple who recently shared their engagement photos spoke to Puget Sound Business Journal to give their thoughts on when the nuptials might actually happen. “Ideally, in a perfect world, we would get married in December somewhere in the sunshine in California,” Chris says. Uh, they do realize that they’re the ones who get to choose when they tie the knot, right?

And even though the save the dates haven’t gone out yet, the twosome is tying up all the loose ends (literally), as Des finishes designing her own wedding gown with designer Maggie Sottero. Des’s line of wedding dresses will debut this August, and she promises that these “won't be typical wedding gowns.” Knowing how creative Des is, we’re not surprised.

So it looks like the waiting game continues for now, as we again hold our breath that the couple will announce their wedding date in the very near future. In the meantime, we wish Siegsock an amazing time in Antigua. And we look forward to the many, many poems that Chris is inevitably going to write about the vacay.

Wish the couple a happy anniversary in the comments section!
