Sean Lowe, Catherine Giudici set wedding date, will televise nups
It was a match made in TV heaven -- and that's just where Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici will tie the knot.
The "Bachelor" alum and his fiancee, who got engaged on Season 17 finale of the ABC competition show, plan to tie the knot on Jan. 26 and televise the whole shebang.
The wedding will air live, ABC announced yesterday, on a special dubbed "The Bachelor: Sean and Catherine's Wedding." According to ABC, the couple will wed in a "perfect location," which hasn't yet been announced, and be attended by "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" alum.
Lowe popped the question to Giudici in November 2012 in Thailand.
They are currently living separately in Dallas, and are waiting to move in together until after they walk down the aisle, according to ABC: "The couple is looking forward to setting up their own home once they begin their life as man and wife and starting a family."
OTHER SUCCESS STORIES:
Only three other couples in 17 seasons of “The Bachelor” and nine of “The Bachelorette” have actually walked down the aisle, despite many, many more proposals. They are:
Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter: The inaugural “Bachelorette” married Sutter (on television) in 2003. They have two children.
Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney: During the Season 13 finale, Mesnick proposed to contestant Melissa Rycroft, but broke off the engagement and began dating runner-up Malaney. They wed in 2010 in a televised ceremony and have a baby girl named Riley.
Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum: The Season 7 “Bachelorette” couple married in 2012, on TV, and now live in Princeton, NJ.
