The Bachelor: Sean and Catherine’s Wedding airs live Jan. 26 on ABC

Petite and glamorous in an animal print dress and matching heels, Giudici rested her hand comfortably on Lowe’s leg as they chatted about the couple’s love story, their future and — yes — this Sunday’s The Bachelor: Sean and Catherine’s Wedding.

In addition to the actual ceremony, the two-hour event — the first-ever live Bachelor wedding broadcast —will also give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the couple’s road to the altar, including moving Catherine to Dallas, announcing their wedding date to loved ones, planning the details of the big day with celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss, and plotting Giudici’s bridal look with famed designer Monique Lhuillier and celebrity hairstylist Jose Eber.

The couple also commissions wedding-day confections from the Ace of Cakes himself, Charm City Cakes founder Duff Goldman, including Sean’s special request for a groom’s cake honoring the pair’s beloved dogs, Lola and Ellie.
