On the live "After the Final Rose" special, the couple were finally reunited and able to talk openly about their engagement and future.

In a surprise announcement, the couple told host Chris Harrison that they plan to have their wedding sooner rather than later -- and it will be televised.

Lowe told the audience that he plans to work with ABC to have their wedding hosted on the network that brought him together with his new fiancee.

"I don't see why there would be any waiting period. I want to be his wife," added Giudici.

While there is no set date, the couple said they want to have their wedding relatively soon.

Harrison also asked the happy couple about their immediate plans. Will Giudici move to Dallas to live with Lowe?

"She's packed her bags," he said. "Whatever happens, we're going to do it together."

If Giudici and Lowe do make it down the aisle -- and back in front of the TV cameras -- they will be only the fourth Bachelor franchise couple to do so. In December 2012, Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert married J.P. Rosenbaum in Pasadena, in a ceremony officiated by Harrison and, yes, televised on ABC.

Bachelor star Jason Mesnick married his second choice, Molly Malaney, on a two-hour special called The Bachelor: Jason and Molly's Wedding, which aired March 8, 2010, on ABC.

The very first successful wedding was that of Bachelorette star Trista Rehn, who married Ryan Sutter on Dec. 6, 2003. The wedding became a three-episode special called Trista & Ryan's Wedding on ABC.
