When Desiree Hartsock walks down the aisle in an ivory bridal gown, she’ll match the snow-covered ground and rooftops! Wetpaint Entertainment has exclusively learned that although the Bachelorette star had originally planned to marry fiancé Chris Siegfried in the spring or summer, she’s recently had a change of heart – and has now set her sights on winter ‘I Do’s!’

Just not this winter. “They still have so much planning to do and so many details to work out,” an insider close to the couple tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “There’s no time to get it all done in the next few months.” Not to mention, there’s already another Bachelor wedding stealing all the thunder. The insider tells us there’s no way Desiree and Chris would rush to tie the knot anywhere near Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici’s Jan. 26 nuptials.

“Next winter would be ideal,” the insider adds. “Both the next seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette will have aired, leaving the spotlight wide open for Des and Chris to have the TV wedding of their dreams.”

In the meantime, the happy couple is starting to scout locations. “They like the idea of getting married at a vineyard, so they’re looking at wineries,” says the insider.

And they’re more in love than ever. “They’re very happy and very cute together,” the insider concludes. “When it happens, it's going to be one seriously romantic wedding!” 

We can't wait to hear more!
