Lowe, who is a 29-year-old Christian, proposed to Giudici during Monday night's season finale of ABC's reality TV dating show. The couple is now planning a TV wedding and opened up about honoring traditional Christian values.

"From my perspective, I've lived life kind of selfishly for a long time, Lowe told People magazine."Now, I'm going to try to live it the way I know to be right."

Giudici, who is a 26-year-old graphic designer at Amazon, accepted Lowe's marriage proposal after being presented with a with a Neil Lane 4.3-carat platinum engagement ring valued at $76,000 in Thailand.

"I honor him," Giudici said with regards to the couple's decision to wait until their wedding night.
Viewers will be able to watch the couple tie the knot in an ABC wedding special and while they are yet to set a date, they revealed that they are eager to wed soon.

"I don't see why there would be any waiting period," Giudici said. "I want to be his wife."

Giudici, who also works as a vegan food blogger, is currently based in Seattle, but she is likely to move to Texas for her fiance.

 "She's packed her bags," Lowe told "Bachelor" host Chris Harrison regarding whether Giudici will join him in his native of Dallas. "Whatever happens, we're going to do it together."

Lowe and Giudici 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 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.

Lowe will appear on "Dancing With The Stars" beginning March 18, when season 16 premieres on the ABC network. He has been partnered up with Australian dancer Peta Murgatroyd.
