Dreams do come true. At least 10-20 percent of the time.

Fans know that a final rose does not guarantee a lifetime of happiness, but The Bachelor has produced some couples that have stood the test of time. At least lately.

And with Juan Pablo Galavis' season in full swing, ABC caught us up on some of its recent success stories as part of its "Juan-uary" series of Sunday specials.

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are set to tie the knot next weekend. They were one of the duos featured on The Bachelor: Bachelor Love Stories last night.

The others:

Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum
Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum are married. He won her heart on The Bachelorette.

  • Trista Rehn married fireman Ryan Sutter in a ceremony that was televised in 2003. Still the gold standard for the show, over a decade later.
  • Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried. The most recent Bachelorette picked Chris at the end of Season 9 last year. They're still engaged.
  • Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum. After she chose J.P. on The Bachelorette Season 7 finale, Ashley married J.P. in December 2012.
  • Molly and Jason Mesnick. Jason was engaged to Melissa Rycroft, but dumped her for runner-up (and now-wife) Molly on the After the Final Rose special. Close enough.

Will Juan Pablo end up in the success or failure column? The Bachelor spoilers shed some light on that if you're interested ... but the odds are not good.

That's like five success stories in like 27 seasons. Just saying.

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are getting married January 26, and The Bachelor lovebirds believe that this will be a magical affair. Live on ABC.

“We’ve been wedding planning all week and it will be the most beautiful wedding you’ve ever seen,” the Dallas, Tex., native told Life & Style on Friday.

“We want the ceremony to be traditional and special and the reception to be a big party. We've got her family and my family coming together to have a blast.”

With Juan Pablo Galavis set to take the reins from Sean this winter (see The Bachelor spoilers for the details on his season), Lowe is set to make history.

Only a select few stars from the reality franchise have tied the knot with their final rose recipients. It's a rare thing, and it's not a small feat in this era.

Are Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried upset at having to put off their dream wedding - at least if they want it on TV - because of Sean Lowe?

Chris Siegfried and Desiree Hartsock Engagement

The Bachelorette starlet, who accepted Chris' proposal just a few months after Sean sent her packing on The Bachelor, is on cloud nine these days.

At least she wants us to believe that, no matter many critics have been shutting down her relationship. Des is always one to stick up for herself.

The latest hiccup in their relationship comes not from Twitter gossip, however, but from planning their special day and whether to have it on ABC.

Hartsock and Siegfried initially showed interest in a summer wedding, however, it appears they will have to wait a bit longer before tying the knot.

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici want you to save the date for their wedding: January 26, 2014 on ABC! They've got a Save the Date card to remind you, too.

Three weeks into the new season of The Bachelor (see The Bachelor spoilers for all the details on Juan Pablo's journey), Sean and Cat will tie the knot.

The card amusingly reads:

Sean Lowe Save the Date Card

"Lovers, friends, family and Jack Nicholson, please join Catherine Ligaya Mejia Giudici and Sean Thomas Lowe & Hologram Tupac for the wedding of the century."

Jack and 'Pac aren't actually going ... we don't think. Still, well played.

The back of the announcement features the bride and groom in his-and-hers bear heads, riding a bike with roses in the basket and tin cans trailing behind them.

As previously reported, The Bachelor's Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici have set a wedding date, and for the FIRST TIME IN BACHELOR HISTORY, it will take place LIVE!

"Hopefully everything goes smoothly," said Sean Lowe on GMA. "The Bachelor is such a cool experience because people at home feel like they know us."

"They're invested in our relationship," the star added. "We have no problem sharing the actual wedding with everyone who has been with us so far."

Bride-to-be Catherine Giudici said that despite the unusual live TV setting, they want a traditional ceremony, followed by an over-the-top reception.

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

Get your rice and your DVR ready, Bachelor fans: Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici have set a wedding date.

A few months after Lowe said the couple's wedding was on hold, causing many to wonder whether a break-up was imminent, the former reality star has confirmed to People that he'll walk down the aisle with his betrothed on January 26, 2014.

And, yes, the ceremony will air live on ABC.

"It's really exciting," Lowe tells the magazine "Time has just flown by – I think January is going to sneak up on us pretty quickly!"

Sean Lowe and fiancee Catherine Giudici have put their wedding on hold, but the Bachelor winners insist this doesn't mean their romance is on the rocks.

"I would say it's more likely to happen in 2014, not 2013," a source tells E! News, noting that they haven't had enough time together since the ABC show.

"I think once we set a date, it'll probably be aired on ABC," Lowe previously said, adding that there was "no reason to wait for their walk down the aisle."

They've changed that tune in the last few weeks, though.

"Straight after The Bachelor, Sean went into Dancing with the Stars and straight after that they both had a lot of work commitments," a source explains.

Sean Lowe may have found true love with Catherine Giudici, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t wish Desiree Hartsock the best in her new quest for love.

He has an opinion on who she should pick, too: Bryden Vukasin!

Sean says he and Catherine Giudici are both big fans of Bry.

"Catherine and I watched the first two episodes. I think so far Desiree is doing a great job. Catherine and I both like Bryden, the military guy," he said.

"He seems the most normal, like a man’s man, whereas, I think at least in the first few episodes, so many of those guys were caught up in the drama already."

The Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live the other night, and it was a bit awkward ... which is standard for Des.

Still, it began to encroach into awkward awkward ... not cute awkward.

Obviously, she's not gonna give away The Bachelorette spoilers or anything. But when Jimmy started asking her about Sean Lowe? A tad uncomfortable:

She'd "probably" have accepted his proposal? Seriously?

Maybe she's just being honest and was that into the guy, but you have to wonder from a girl who just came off her very own special journey for love on ABC.

Uh oh. Is there trouble in reality TV paradise ... again?

The Bachelor stars Sean Lowe and Catherine Guidici, who have been under scrutiny since the second the show ended, are back in the news again.

Or at least whatever you'd call Star magazine.

Despite claiming to be “bursting with excitement” over their future wedding vows, Catherine Giudici has reportedly been cozying up to some other dude.

Constantly ignored during Sean's surprisingly long run on Dancing On With the Stars this spring, his busy schedule has not done the couple any favors.

Has it all become too much for her to bear?
