‘The Bachelorette’: Desiree Hartsock working to help design wedding dress

The happy couple -Mrs. Carter: How about some wedding scoop all about another member of the “Bachelor” family?

We understand that this weekend, almost all of the focus is around Sean Lowe and his big wedding to Catherine Giudici, and that makes perfect sense. The live event is probably going to get some solid ratings from ABC, mostly because the couple has a strong fan base and nobody has actually seen the wedding dress yet save for the people who were actually present at the fittings (and maybe some folks behind the scenes at the show who have been good enough not to spoil anything).

But, Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried are also now planning a few aspects of their own wedding and that also includes the dress Desiree plans to wear. Given that this is something that our reigning “Bachelorette” does for a living, it only makes sense that she would be extremely involved in the process.

Speaking on the official site for Maggie Sottero, Hartsock revealed that she will be partnering with the designer for her own gown, which is going to incorporate a great deal of lace (very traditional and always gorgeous!):

“I like that [Maggie Sottero’s] gowns are within reach for many brides, and that makes Maggie Sottero more personable and warm for anyone searching for a gown. I am proud to be part of such a presence in the bridal industry for my collection with Maggie Sottero.”

Desiree is also going to be producing an exclusive line of dresses called “Desiree Hartsock with Maggie Sottero.,” which is great news in that she is able to push forward with her career almost right away following the show. This is in some ways one of the things that Desiree and Chris have each done so well: Made a real effort to move forward and live a reasonably-normal life. This is something that just about every successful couple from the show has done, rather than tried to milk their 15 minutes of fame for all that they can. (Even Sean and Catherine, despite him doing “Dancing with the Stars,” are now living again in Dallas.)
