Sean Lowe Catherine Giudici

Their wedding date of January 26, 2014 will be here before we know it, and that's why Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are planning their bachelor and bachelorette parties to engage in one last hoorah before they become husband and wife.

And while it was originally reported a while back that they would have a joint party, it looks like they've changed their minds and decided to go in separate directions.

A source who talked to E! News shared all the juicy details. Believe it or not, Sean and Catherine's plans couldn't be more different.

The parties will take place on December 5 and December 9 -- on opposite sides of the country.

The source says that Sean and his boys will head to Jackson Hole, Wyoming for a "rustic getaway" in a cabin. Huh. Sounds super exciting. Just what every groom-to-be dreams of -- being holed up in a log house with a bunch of dudes.

Catherine and her bridesmaids, on the other hand, will supposedly be heading to a more tropical locale -- probably Miami. They're "packing bikinis," so it has to be somewhere with a decent beach and very warm climate. Miami definitely fits that description perfectly -- and honestly, South Beach is about as appealing as it gets as far as a bachelorette party destination. (Second to Vegas, of course.)

But aside from a great place to bask in the sun -- you know what else Miami is known for? Yep. The insane night life. And once Catherine and her girlfriends hit the clubs, there's definitely the potential for things to get a bit on the rowdy side. I wonder if the "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" thing applies to Miami too? Let's hope so.

It would be such a shame if Sean wound up crying into his beer in that cabin over the idea of Catherine partying like a rock star and doing God knows what with a bunch of ridiculously gorgeous people.

Did you have a bachelorette party? Where was it held?
