Desiree Hartsock, Chris Siegfried Head To California: What’s ‘The Bachelorette’ Couple Doing?

Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried of 'The Bachelorette'

Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried’s wedding day may not be here quite yet, but The Bachelorette stars will have weddings on their minds this weekend. The two are headed to California, as Des finally gets to debut her wedding gown collection with Maggie Sottero. As fans of the show know, this collection is the culmination of a dream Hartsock has had for quite some time. Desiree has been working on designing her own gown as well, and fans of course are anxious to get the scoop on that.

Yahoo! Finance shares that Desiree and Chris will be together at the Couture Bridal Market hosted by The Knot this weekend for the launch. Hartsock says that the wedding gowns she designed “reflect my personality – free spirited, but with a passion for glam.” Unfortunately for curious fans, the gowns Hartsock has designed for herself won’t be a part of this collection reveal.

So, what is the scoop on The Bachelorette wedding between Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried? There really haven’t been any new details on that front lately. Des does say, “I haven’t decided yet whether my own wedding will be in a church or outdoor setting,” but she says that the wedding and reception dresses she’s designed for herself will fit either type of setting.

This debut will, of course, be Desiree Hartsock’s moment in the spotlight, but her fiance Chris Siegfried will be right by her side. Chris wrote on Desiree’s blog, “I want to say how happy and proud and excited I am for her and her accomplishments.” He adds that he also hasn’t seen Hartsock’s wedding day dresses, and he won’t be seeing them until the big day.

He naturally anticipated that The Bachelorette fans would want to know when Desiree and Chris’ wedding day is. He says, “Well – it’s a surprise! Haha. We will be getting married. That’s guaranteed.” Will it be shown on television? Word for months has been that ABC is not going to grasp this one. Chris says, “Will we get to share it with you? We aren’t sure yet but we will certainly keep you posted.” He adds that this weekend they will be looking at venues in Los Angeles, and Desiree had previously indicated that they would likely get married in California.

Even this week, Reality Steve said flat-out “It’s not being televised by ABC.” Though he’s given a reason why ABC isn’t airing Desiree and Chris’ wedding, it does appear to be the case that they aren’t unless something suddenly changes. That said, it would seem that perhaps the door is open for another network to pick it up. At this point, many would guess that if Desiree and Chris’ wedding ends up on television, it’ll be via another network. While ABC is said to always have first dibs, if they pass up the opportunity, it would seem that the couple could scout out other deals. That brings to mind, for many, Rachel Reilly and Brandon Villegas’ Big Brother wedding that was aired via My Fair Wedding.

For now, fans will have to stay tuned to see if anything comes together regarding Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried’s The Bachelorette wedding being televised. In the meantime, the two will surely be sharing updates from California. Once this Maggie Sottero wedding gown collection reveal is done, it would seem likely that their own wedding will become their next big focus.
