ABC's The Bachelorette season 9 star Desiree Hartsock and the winner Chris Siegfried shared some ideas they have in mind for their upcoming wedding.
The couple revealed the time frame for the ceremony when they appeared on LIVE with Kelly & Michael on Aug. 6.
"We would like to get married in the summer - next summer," Hartsock told morning show co-host Michael Strahan, before adding about the number of guests and the size of the bridal party, "We want to keep it intimate."
During their interview on Kelly & Michael, Hartsock also revealed that she plans to move to Seattle to be with Siegfred. She said she was moving over the weekend, adding, "I want to be with him!"
The 26-year-old bridal designer and stylist told E! News around the same time that the couple have not set a date yet for their wedding.
"We've talked about it and we've discussed next summer. Not a specific date yet," Hartsock said. "If we can have [that and a televised wedding], that would be great for people to share in our love. We'll see when the time comes."
As for the wedding dress, Hartsock plans to design her own gown. She said her "entire dream" has been to design her own bridal gown collection, including her own wedding dress. Hartsock then told People that her and her fiance have yet to decide on where to have the wedding ceremony, saying at the moment she "all over the place" with ideas.
"It's gone from destination to small chapel to winery," she said of the ideas they have in mind.
She also told the weekly magazine that if it were up to her, she would rather wed Seigfried sooner than later.
"We don't need to wait. I could marry Chris tomorrow!"
Siegfried loves the idea of a summer wedding and said the couple will most probably write their own vows. He added about the wedding date, "We've talked about next June."
When asked if she intends to change her last name after the wedding, Hartsock told Your Tango she considers herself "very traditional" and plans to become Mrs. Siegfried.
