What’s the latest on The Bachelorette couple Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried? The two are still together, and it sounds as if a wedding is coming up fairly soon. Desiree and Chris will be making an appearance on the Bachelor in Paradise finale Monday night, and fans are definitely anxious for an update on them.
Life & Style shares a bit of an update on Desiree and Chris in their latest issue. As many Bachelorette fans know, Hartsock and Siegfried were recently in California so Desiree could debut her wedding gown collection with Maggie Sottero. With all of those wedding dresses on her mind, just when will Des wear a gown herself? Though fans are anxious for specifics, it seems the couple is still pulling things together.
Desiree is designing two gowns for herself: a wedding dress for the nuptials as well as a gown for the reception. Des and Chris have had their eye on a January wedding, and she tells Life & Style that she wants an outdoor wedding. They have previously said they are planning to get married in California, and she indicates that they have about 150 people they are inviting.
Hartsock adds that they are in the midst of planning and they’re aiming for a January date. She wants it to be “very nature-oriented and sentimental,” and they want it to be a big party. There will be a lot of dancing involved, as Des even indicates that her reception dress is designed with dancing in mind. As for the wedding gown itself, Desiree says it will be ivory with a vintage glamour feel. It will be a sheath gown with beading or lace, but she’s not dishing out much more than that.
Though the wedding seemingly won’t be televised by ABC, that doesn’t mean there won’t be some “Bachelor Nation” faces in the mix. Desiree recently shared via Instagram that fellow Bachelor contestant Daniella McBride, who also appeared on Bachelor in Paradise this summer, along with producer and former contestant Amy Bean, will be bridesmaids. Many would bet that there will be some other folks from the franchise at the wedding as well, as both Desiree and Chris have grown quite close to a number of show alums.
Many fans are seriously bummed that ABC apparently isn’t televising The Bachelorette wedding, and nobody is really sure why that is the network’s decision. Fans are hoping perhaps Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried’s wedding will still somehow may its way onto television, perhaps via another outlet.
In the meantime, tune in to the Bachelor in Paradise finale airing Monday night on ABC. Viewers will get to see Des and Chris, Sean and Catherine Lowe, and Jason and Molly Mesnick as they chat with the final two couples together to share advice and insight.
