Break out the Champagne!
Nearly one year after Sean Lowe got down on one knee to propose to Catherine Giudici, the couple have finally picked a day for their much-anticipated union, PEOPLE confirms.
The Bachelor alums will say their vows on Jan. 26, 2014 – and the ceremony will air live on ABC.
"It's really exciting," Lowe, 29, tells PEOPLE. "Time has just flown by – I think January is going to sneak up on us pretty quickly!"

Little by little, former Bachelor Sean Lowe and fiancée Catherine Giudici are hammering out wedding plans. But make no mistake about it – the wedding is happening.
"We've been talking about it a lot more so I imagine an announcement will be made sometime in the near future," Lowe tells PEOPLE.
Since he competed on Dancing With the Stars – he was eliminated during week eight – Lowe, 29, and Giudici, 27, have been spending time away from the spotlight, traveling more and working on wedding plans.

It's not only Bachelor Sean Lowe and fiancée Catherine Giudici who were looking forward to a little "pool time" on Saturday. In a video he posted to Instagram, Lowe's chocolate Labrador Ellie made a beeline for its welcoming waters – probably to catch that falling tennis ball.
His other beloved furball, boxer Lola, meanwhile seemed content to just soak up the sun. But unfortunately for Giudici, no one looked ready to help her blow up all those beach balls. Paw shux!

No cameras this time around!
On Monday night, Bachelor Sean Lowe and fiancée Catherine Giudici enjoyed a quiet date night at the Ainsworth Park in New York City. The lovebirds talked quietly among themselves while sharing low-calorie dishes like chicken and salmon, and they were overheard discussing plans for a pre-wedding honeymoon.
Tuesday, the reality stars turned up at a Children's Miracle Network event at Frames Bowling Lounge in Manhattan, where they played a few games.

It was a Bachelor party at the Thompson Beverly Hills hotel rooftop on Saturday.
Sean Lowe and fiancée Catherine Giudici bonded with former Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky, when the trio attended the fifth annual On the Go Mother's Day event.
At the pool party, Fedotowsky – who showed up sans new beau Kevin Manno – "grabbed Sean and Catherine and congratulated them on everything," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Sean spoke about his recent stint on Dancing with the Stars and he and Catherine joked about them having choreographed a wedding dance."

There's an upside to Sean Lowe's elimination on Tuesday from Dancing with the Stars.
The former Bachelor star, 29, can finally give undivided attention to his fiancée, Catherine Giudici, who supported him all season as he competed for the mirrorball trophy with Peta Murgatroyd.
"I've gone from one show to the next for the past 12 or 14 months," Lowe told PEOPLE backstage after being sent home. "It's nice now. I'll have a little bit of a break and I can take a deep breath. [Catherine and I will] definitely take a vacation and relax. I'm definitely going to spend a lot of quality time with her because dancing consumed my life for the past few months, so it'll be nice to play with my dogs – the simple things."

There's no dirty dancing going on between Sean Lowe and Peta Murgatroyd.
The Dancing with the Stars pro tells PEOPLE that despite rumors, she and her partner Lowe, 29, are "just good friends like brother and sister."
The season 14 champ says gossip is to be expected given Lowe's sexy (and sometimes shirtless) routines but that it's tough for the former Bachelor star and his new fiancée, Catherine Giudici. "[The rumors are] something that [have] gotten a little out of hand with Sean and Catherine because they had just gotten engaged and it's just so crazy to think that people are making up all these stories," she says in an interview with PEOPLE. "They have to have something to talk about and it's ridiculous. There's nothing going on."
