Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici have confirmed that they plan to walk down the aisle in August, and viewers will get to watch the entire ceremony during a televised special.
The season 17 "Bachelor" couple appeared on "Dancing With The Stars" Tuesday where Lowe is currently a contestant and they confirmed reports of a summer wedding.
Lowe, 29, and Giudici, 26, will become the fourth "Bachelor" franchise couple to wed on TV following in the footsteps of others including "Bachelorette" star Trista Rehn and husband Ryan Sutter, who starred in "Trista & Ryan's Wedding." The Christian entrepreneur explained his decision to go ahead with a televised ceremony.
"My relationship developed on TV, so it almost would make sense to marry on TV," Lowe told Life & Style magazine.
Giudici, who is a graphic designer, competed on the hit ABC reality TV dating show amongst a number of female contestants for Lowe's heart. She ultimately won a romantic marriage proposal in Thailand where Lowe presented her with a Neil Lane 4.3-carat platinum engagement ring valued at $76,000.
"She can't wait until the show ends so she can finally start planning the wedding," an alleged relative of Giudici said before the proposal aired on TV. "She doesn't want to wait."
The wedding news follows reports claiming the couple has been struggling with their engagement in recent weeks. Sources claim the pair has recently had public blowouts.
Lowe was spotted celebrating his first "Dancing With The Stars" performance at L.A. Hotspot The Sayers Club on March 18. While Giudici was also in attendance, sources claim that a public blowout left the season 17 "Bachelor" winner in tears.
"About an hour after they arrived, Sean and Catherine were in a corner, and she was clearly mad at him, yelling at him," an alleged onlooker revealed.
"Sean was trying to talk to her, but she didn't want to hear it. She was fed up with him and rolled her eyes. Then she started crying, wiping her eyes and looking away from him," the source added.
