The Bachelor couple, who got engaged in November 2012 when they filmed Lowe's seventeenth-season finale, have announced they will definitely be tying the knot after their initial plan to wed this past summer didn't happen.

"We have set a wedding date! It's going to be here on ABC live January 26 [2014]," Lowe revealed during Monday's Good Morning America broadcast.

"Hopefully everything goes smoothly."

Lowe explained why he and his fiancee decided to get married live on national TV, which will be the first time in The Bachelor franchise history a couple will exchange vows in real time, as previous weddings ABC had aired were pre-taped.

"The Bachelor is such a cool experience because people at home feel like they know us and they're invested in our relationship," Lowe said. "And so, we have no problem sharing the actual wedding with everyone who has been with us so far."

"I just want it to be fun and show our love," Giudici added.

"Other than that, I know that it's going to be a beautiful wedding. We want some traditional type of ceremony that just kind of unifies us and then have a big party afterwards."

Lowe and Giudici just celebrated their engagement party last weekend in Seattle.

Several weeks after Lowe finished his stint on Dancing with the Stars' sixteenth season, the Dallas, TX native told Life & Style the couple would be making their way back to his hometown, where his business and family are.

Earlier this summer, Lowe told guests at a Children's Miracle Network bowling even in Manhattan that he and Giudici "aren't in any rush" to get married. The couple was reportedly just focusing on enjoying their summer together before diving into wedding plans.

Right after The Bachelor's seventeenth season concluded in March, however, Lowe had been singing a different tune about their wedding.

"We've kicked around some ideas. It could be this summer," Lowe told People at the time.

Lowe and Giudici will be the first The Bachelor couple to wed on TV and the third in the series' franchise.

Seventh-season The Bachelorette couple Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum's ceremony aired on ABC in December 2012 in a special entitled The Bachelorette: Ashley and J.P.'s Wedding, following in the footsteps of first-season The Bachelorette couple Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter, whose wedding aired as a three-part miniseries entitled Trista & Ryan's Wedding in 2003.
