Sean Lowe Catherine GiudiciOMG ... it's really happening, like for real this time. Bachelor couple Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's wedding date is set, which should finally shut up their haters once and for all and convince everyone that they're truly in love and meant to be.

Most of us had a feeling that this announcement was coming since they had an engagement party in Seattle a couple weekends ago. Now there's an official date and even a few key details about their big day.

Are you ready for this?!?

Sean and Catherine will get hitched on January 26, 2014, and yes -- their nuptials will be broadcast live on ABC, so we're all kind of invited even though we're not really on the guest list. (Still holding my breath that I somehow manage to make the cut though. Hint, hint. Wink, wink.)

And while Catherine still has yet to pick out the perfect wedding gown, she and Sean do have a few details in place -- like her bridesmaids, for starters. Would you believe she's going to have 12 of them? Good grief. She's really lucky to have 12 women in her life she considers close enough to her to stand up for her at her wedding. (Though something tells me ABC is probably footing the bill for them all to attend ... so ...)

The ceremony will be traditional -- but it sounds like Sean and Catherine plan on writing their own vows, which isn't really all that surprising considering how gushy they've been since their engagement. And they plan on taking their honeymoon "somewhere tropical" -- and you know it will be swanky as hell considering (again) they're probably getting an all-expense paid trip. (Must be nice.)

Oh hell, who cares if their freebie wedding will be over-the-top. Don't even try and act like you aren't psyched about them setting a date -- and watching the event on TV!

OMG. I wonder if Chris Harrison will officiate? That would be so fitting.

Stay tuned. Odds are good more details will start trickling in any day now.

Are you excited for Sean and Catherine's wedding?
