We know you’re probably a little wrapped up on all that Andi Dorfman wedding news right now, but that’s still a ways away, people! While Andi and her recently-revealed fiancé, Josh Murray, will be waiting until at least May of next year to make things official, her Bachelorette predecessor Desiree Hartsock and her Season 9 winner, Chris Siegfried, are almost ready. And now, they’re finally opening up about the specifics of their big day — including the actual date!


For months, we’ve endured while this adorable Seattle-based couple kept the details of their nuptials under lock and key. Though they got engaged in May 2013 on the show, they waited until winter to celebrate their engagement, and just this week, Des finally celebrated her bridal shower. We guess that means the former baseball player (so many of those guys on this franchise!) and his betrothed are OK with spilling the goods now.

In an interview with the Puget Sound Business Journal right after the shower, the future Mr. and Mrs. Siegfried revealed that they are aiming for a January 2015 date to tie the knot. “We’re still thinking an intimate wedding with about 125 people,” Chris told the publication. And while we’ve heard wind that ABC doesn’t have plans to film the affair for TV, the couple is still considering the idea.

“We are up for sharing it,” the groom admitted. “Our entire love story unfolded in front of (millions of viewers).”

Whether or not the network grants us our wish — don’t they know that everybody loves a good on-screen wedding!  — it sounds like the planning is coming along nicely. After seeing how adorable Des’s shower turned out, and knowing what great taste she has (she’s a designer, after all), this is sure to be a doozy!
