Two “Bachelor” TV weddings in one year? On the heels of “Bachelor” star Sean Lowe’s January wedding to Catherine Giudici, “Bachelorette” alum Desiree Hartsock has revealed that she’s in wedding planning mode.

In a Feb. 10 interview posted by Cupids Pulse, the Season 9 “Bachelorette” star dished on her upcoming marriage to Chris Siegfried. And yes, she confirmed that it might be a TV event later this year.

Following their romantic engagement in Antigua last spring, Hartsock said she and her fiance are finally starting to plan their nuptials. “We are working on setting a date,” she said. “We’re open to having it televised and still planning for the fall.”

The bridal stylist also revealed that she plans to design both her wedding and reception dresses. “Both dresses will reflect my personality in different ways,” she said. “I love to dance and be comfortable, so my reception gown will cater to that, while the ceremony gown will be more romantic.”

If the couple does opt for a TV wedding (and who wouldn’t want to have ABC foot the bill for a dream wedding?), they can get advice from their new go-to couple, Jason and Molly Mesnick.

“They have been so great to us, and it’s nice to share a common bond,” Hartsock said of the “Bachelor” alums, who wed in a televised extravaganza in 2010. “We’ll get together with them whenever possible for dinner or even just to hang at their house with Riley, their adorable baby girl.”

Speaking of past “Bachelor” TV weddings, Hartsock recently told E Online, she didn’t understand the Lowes’ unusual “Grown Sexy” wedding theme.

"Is it grown, like I'm growing a garden? Or is it like, 'I'm an adult?' Or is it like, Justin Timberlake, we're bringing sexy back?” she asked.

The current season of “The Bachelor” airs on Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
