The Bachelorette's Desiree Hartsock: I've Designed Both My Wedding Dresses

The Bachelorette and now bride-to-be talks wedding dress planning

As if planning a wedding wasn’t already enough work, The Bachelorette‘s Desiree Hartsock is designing both of her dresses for her January wedding to fiancé Chris Siegfried. For most girls, that might be a lot — but for the bridal stylist, 28, it was no sweat.

“I designed a collection with Maggie Sottero, and then I designed two more for myself,” the bride-to-be told PEOPLE at The Knot Gala in N.Y.C. Monday.

The bridal designer says the two dresses are “very different. I have a ceremony dress and a reception dress. One is going to be very romantic, and the other is more vintage style,” she says.

That romantic-slash-vintage vibe is carrying over into the décor of her January wedding. “We love greenery and we love flowers,” says Hartsock. “So it’s going to have a very organic feel, but still very elegant.”

The couple got engaged in May 2013 on the season finale of The Bachelorette, then moved in together in Seattle. The reality star celebrated her bridal shower in L.A. in August. And she’s feeling the heat — “it is pretty soon, but you know, we’re piecing it together” — but not losing sight of what’s important.

“Being able to plan your life and enjoy every moment with this guy. It’s going to be fun,” says Hartsock of what she’s most excited for. “I think getting married will just make everything even better.”‘

Though they seem to be enjoying their engagement just fine: “A stroll in the park to end a wonderful weekend in NYC,” she captioned an adorable photo of the happy couple this morning in Central Park, above.
