Sean Lowe Catherine Giudici

OMG. It seems like they just got engaged yesterday -- but would you believe Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are getting married in just 23 days?!? Yep. January 26 is right around the corner, which is why they're making all the final preparations to ensure they're ready for their big day.

And it looks like they may have made one big move we didn't think would happen until right before their actual wedding date, which is kind of surprising, given how traditional their relationship has been thus far.

No ... not "that" big move. (Get your head out of the gutter.) Earlier today, Catherine tweeted that she and Sean are looking into getting their marriage license -- so it looks like they may have their paperwork in order a good three weeks before they tie the knot.

Holy organized. If I recall correctly, I'm pretty sure my husband and I didn't get ours until the day before our wedding. Oops.

As any couple about to get hitched will tell you, getting the marriage license signed is such a huge and significant step -- and it makes things seem so much more real and official. Like, holy sh*% ... we're really doing this.

There's no going back for Sean and Catherine from here -- not that anyone expects them to split so close to their wedding date, but you know what I mean.

Once they have that marriage license, they're basically as good as man and wife -- minus the whole officiating the ceremony thing. Well, that and finally consummating their relationship on their wedding night -- something which I'm sure they're both chomping at the bit to get over with already.

Congrats to the two of them on getting this important final detail in order. They'll be buzzing with even more excitement as soon as this baby is signed!

How far before your wedding did you get your marriage license?
