Bachelor Wedding Rings Neil Lane Sean and Catherine

We loved watching last season's adorable Bachelor couple, Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici, get married this past Sunday—and we took in every gorgeous wedding-planning detail. (Not to mention the star-studded guests, and of course, tearful ceremony.) But one thing that was easily missed while vows were exchanged was a good look at the couple's custom Neil Lane wedding rings.

Now, we can see them up close! Catherine's diamond-studded rose gold wedding band is a stunner, to say the least, and is perfectly complemented by Sean's two-tone rose gold and white gold wedding band.

We're not surprised by the choice of metals, considering that rose gold is an emerging trend in wedding jewelry—even last season's Bachelorette and current bride-to-be Desiree Hartsock is rocking a two-tone, platinum and rose gold engagement ring!

For brides, a simple diamond-studded eternity band is as classic as it is eye-catching. It's also a great way to add some extra bling to an understated solitaire (or, if you're one of those go-big-or-go-home kind of girls, a great way to make your bridal set ultra-glam). Plus, rose gold complements nearly every skin tone, and as can be seen on Des's sparkler, and mixes well with other metals. Below, a few bands that will give you the same glam effect as Catherine's:

For grooms, we love little details that make a standard wedding band stand out. To deviate from the norm, look for two-tone metals, a la Sean's, or even a hidden stone. And one last note: choosing a matching element for both of your rings, like a touch of rose gold, is a great way to tie the two together and help make your rings as meaningful and unique as the commitment they represent!

It finally happened! Sean Lowe married Catherine Giudici in last night's live Bachelor wedding at the Four Seasons Bitlmore in Santa Barbara, California, and, we're still feeling kind of swoony over how romantic and pretty the whole event turned out. With a star-studded guest list—Bachelor and Bachelorette alums Trista and Ryan, newly married J.P. and Ashley, Desiree and Chris, and Jason and Molly were all on hand to witness the nuptials, as was ring guru Neil Lane, and host/support system Chris Harrison—a knockout Monique Lhuillier wedding dress, and every last detail overseen by celebrity planner Mindy Weiss, it was hard not to love this high-profile event.

The 2-hour special showed tons of behind-the-scenes details: From Catherine's wedding dress shopping to the couple's final moments with their florist, Mark Held, as well as their heartfelt ceremony. Here, are our three favorite moments from the fourth-ever Bachelor wedding—and what you can learn for your own wedding:

The Moment: The dress reveal
Let's just start with Catherine's unbelievable Monique Lhuillier wedding dress. After trying on everything from frothy ball gowns to ruched tulle trumpet styles, Lhuillier herself helped Catherine pick the perfect gown: a lace mermaid with a silver beaded belt. The sweetheart neckline and body-skimming silhouette were ideal for her "grown sexy" theme—and we're not surprised that Sean started tearing up when he saw in her it! P.S. Catherine's blush chiffon bridesmaid dresses were Monique Lhuillier, too (styles 450064, 450022, and 450036).

Make it your own: Catherine made sure that her dress suited her body type and her wedding's theme. So when you're shopping for your own dress, take her cue and remember that your gown shouldn't just look amazing, it should match your venue, too.

The Moment: Dad as officiant!
One of the most heartwarming aspects of this televised wedding was the amount of family involvement. A prime example: Sean and Catherine asked Sean's father, Jay, to officiate the ceremony. (Sean's father teared up with joy when they asked—so sweet!). We loved how Jay opened the ceremony: "Sean, as far as I'm concerned you're the best son a father can have... and Catherine, when I just look at you I smile. You incite happiness wherever you go. And I just want you to know Sherry and I are head over heels in love with you girl." For Sean and Catherine, the wedding wasn't just about them, but about joining two families together.

Make it your own: During the special, viewers learned that Jay's own dad officiated his wedding, making the whole dad-as-officiant element even more special. And while you may not want to ask a parent to preside over your nuptials, finding something meaningful to your family is a good way to get them involved in your big day and make it even more meaningful.

The Moment: The amazing vows!
Read this and tell us you don't have a tear in your eye: Catherine vowed to Sean, "I promise to love you until my heart bursts. I promise to love you until our children are old and gray. I promise to love you until after we can't even remember our own name," and added, "Everytime I kiss you my whole body feels it. Sometimes I feel like I might explode with how much I love you." Sean sweetly said to his bride: "Everyday I'm encouraged by your love and your selflessness. And as your husband, I promise to always put you first." So it's no surprise that after they were announced as husband and wife and walked back up the aisle, Sean broke was full-on crying. His overwhelming joy was palpable, and it made us even happier to see such true love. After they made it down the aisle, Sean said to Catherine, "I missed you all day today, you look so beautiful," thus making our hearts officially explode.

Make it your own: If you have a way with words, writing your own vows is yet another way to personalize your ceremony. At the very least, work with your officiant to include heartfelt details about you, your fiance, your relationship, and the future you want to share.

A hearty congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs. Lowe!

Former Bachelor Sean Lowe and fiancée Catherine Giudici's televised wedding is finally (almost!) here, and thankfully, the two are still as open about their wedding plans as ever!

During an appearance on Good Morning America today, the couple chatted excitedly about her wedding dress (Lowe gamely put on noise-canceling headphones as Giudici described her gown), their theme, and who will cry first.

"I've always felt like a cute girl, and just trying to be fun and playful, but this time I'm really coming out as a woman, and I want to wear something very form-fitting and sexy," Giudici explained. We won't argue that she seems like a blast—her infectious giggle and spontaneity clearly won over her future husband while she was a contestant on The Bachelor—but we love that she's using her wedding day to show off a more mature side as she becomes a wife.

Her all-grown-up dress (which we're dying to see) goes perfectly with their "grown sexy" wedding theme. That concept, they explained, is intended to contrast with their whimsical dynamic as a couple. Their wedding will have some of those fun elements, of course, but with an overarching romantic vibe.

Given their trendy, hipster-esque save-the-date cards and wedding invitations , can totally picture them having contemporary wedding reception elements like a dress-up photo booth or coordinated dance to brighten up the atmosphere. One thing we do know for sure, thanks to hte premarital pop quiz they took at the end of the segment: their first dance song. They'll sway to Randy Rogers Band's "One Woman."

All speculation aside, Lowe did clear up one thing—he guaranteed that he'll be the first one of the two to cry on their wedding day. "I can't help but tear up every time I talk about Catherine," he said. And if that's not enough to get you to tune into their televised nuptials on Jan. 26, consider this: Lowe is the first Bachelor contestant to marry his pick from the show's finale. There's history in the making here, folks!

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's wedding invitations revealed

After The Bachelor's Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's hilariously adorable save-the-date card was revealed (Oversized bear masks? Hologram Tupac? This pair is too much), we knew with their wedding would be a treat. As the details come together we're getting more and more excited for their Jan. 26 televised nuptials. The latest? An equally adorable wedding invitation.

Although more formal than their save-the-date cards, the invites, which People revealed (See the suite here!) capture their fun-loving personalities just as well as their save-the-dates did.

The front of the invitation sums up the future celebration in the shortest and sweetest way we could imagine. The card declares: "The Lowe-down: marrying, eating, boogie-ing." Our hearts nearly burst when reading the inside of the invite. "Together with their families Sean Thomas Lowe will marry his best friend Catherine Ligaya Mejia Giudici who completely adores him," the calligraphy reads. The RSVP card finishes off the package with a punch. If replying yes to the ABC-sanctioned affair, guests will select a pretty standard "Can't wait" box. But, if said guests can't attend, they'll have to reply with a chuckle-worthy "has something more important to attend than celebrating the union of Sean & Catherine."

Their invitations sealed the deal: Sean and Catherine may just be our all-time favorite Bachelor couple. We love how they aren't afraid to laugh at themselves. It's clear from their cheekiness that the two are madly in love.

The invites aren't the only wedding logistics in the works. According to her Instagram, Catherine just left today for her bachelorette party (see above), and with a competitive caption to boot! "Hey Sean, we can go skiing AND sunning for my bachelorette. Take that!" her post said. They're social interactions are almost too adorable to bear. Needless to say, we're anxiously awaiting the "Lowe-down" on January 26 and all of the other Juan-uary specials in the works!
