As a bridal stylist-turned-blogger, Desiree Hartsock has been FULL of ideas for other brides-to-be, but in the months since getting engaged to Chris Siegfried on season 9 of The Bachelorette, she hasn't seemed to be making any moves to plan her own wedding. That's fine -- maybe she and Chris just want to settle into living together first, which is wise and completely understandable! -- but obviously, given Bachelor/Bachelorette odds, we can't wait to hear that real wedding plans are in motion. Well, now, they very well may be!
Des Instagrammed this dashing pic (right) last night with the caption, "All dressed up for Urban Unveiled bridal event! Love my @lulyyangcouture red dress and awesome hair and makeup from @swinkstylebar Also the arm candy to my right @chrisrsiegfried #mmm" Cute! But wait, what's Urban Unveiled?
Sponsored by Seattle Bride magazine, it's a wedding show/cocktail party for "nearly-weds and the regions most creative wedding vendors, ready to make dreams come true." The site boasts that "this evening of opulence is a chance for brides and grooms to meet and mingle with the Urban Unveiled partners who can make nuptial visions a reality, while guests enjoy fine wines, nibble on sumptuous cuisine, indulge in to-die-for desserts." Awesome!
Oh, sure, it's possible that Des went as a vendor, but she sure wasn't dressed like one, right? She also may have just attended to network for her own business, but ehhh, again, not sure that what she's looking to do -- dole out bridal advice and create custom gowns -- would be suited to such a big event like this. PLUS, she wasn't listed as a vendor -- or special reality star guest or something -- on the event site! So that MUST be mean Des and Chris went as "nearly-weds" planning!? Eee!
Also, while you can definitely attend a wedding show in a city/state other than the one where you plan to tie the knot, it's certainly more productive to go in the place you plan to hold the wedding ... That said, does this mean the deliriously happy, poetry-penning couple is most likely going to say "I do" in the Emerald City? Aww! That could very well be!
'Course we won't know anything for sure until Des and Chris confirm it (to Chris Harrison, right?), but in the meantime, looks like the most recent Bachelorette could be well on her way to walking down the aisle.
Do you think this is a sign Des and Chris have started planning? Would you like to see them get married in Seattle?
