Nick Lachey's wedding will be televised -- again.
TLC has announced it will air Nick & Vanessa's Dream Wedding, a reality special that will document Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo's wedding ceremony and the events leading up to it, including Minnillo shopping for the perfect dress and the couple's joint wedding shower.
The special will debut just weeks after Lachey and Minnillo's big day, but the premiere date has yet to be announced since the couple is attempting to keep their wedding date under wraps to "preserve a special, romantic day for them and their families," according to the network.
"We're lucky to have such passionate and loving fans, and we thought partnering with TLC on this special would be the best way to share the exciting journey we're on with all the people that support us and our relationship," The Sing-Off host and former Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica star said in a statement with Minnillo.
Lachey and the upcoming Wipeout co-host and former True Beauty host began dating in 2006 later briefly broke up in 2009. However, the couple has seemingly been going strong ever since they got back together later in 2009.
"From big events to ongoing series, TLC is the destination for the best wedding coverage on television. Nick and Vanessa are today's 'it' couple and the excitement for their wedding keeps building. We know their fans will love sharing in their celebration," TLC general manager Amy Winter said in a statement.
TLC's wedding special will mark the second time viewers will visually be invited to Lachey's wedding and get to see him exchanging vows with a bride, as his previous Newlyweds show had featured footage of him marrying his ex-wife Jessica Simpson.
