When the Bachelor's away, the Bachelorettes will play! Sean Lowe's fiancee, Catherine Giudici, enjoyed a sunny getaway with more than a dozen of her closest friends in Miami, Fla., this past weekend. While there, she showed off her sexy pre-wedding bikini body in a couple of colorful two-piece swimsuits.
On Monday, Dec. 9, the 27-year-old graphic designer rocked an asymmetrical black bandeau top with a single, diagonally placed strap. She paired the top with a pair of bright coral bikini bottoms — and her diamond engagement ring from Lowe, whose heart she stole on season 17 of ABC's The Bachelor.
On another day during the trip, the blushing bride-to-be flaunted her curves in a neon yellow halter top and skimpy side-tie bottoms. She appeared to be in a great mood as she talked and laughed with friends.
"Life is fun," she tweeted on Sunday, Dec. 8. "I am lucky to have the coolest chicks to call my friends!"
Judging by Giudici's Twitter, the group's getaway was a busy one. On Saturday, she tweeted that she was taking part in "a little water workout with the women" — paddle-boarding and kayaking. Later, she shared a picture of the pals all dressed up for dinner at Katsuya, where they ate sashimi and sushi and enjoyed "Kiwi Envy" cocktails.
From sunny Miami, the reality TV alum headed up to chilly New York, where she met up with her fiance. The couple helped donate coats to people in need at Manhattan's Bryant Park on Dec. 11.
Lowe, 29, proposed to Giudici on the season finale of The Bachelor in March. "I knew from the beginning that you were someone I wanted to be around," he said at the time. "I just had no idea my feelings would turn into what they did. I think the world of you and I miss you every time we have to say goodbye. I miss you. I don't want to say goodbye anymore."
The couple are set to tie the knot in a Bachelor special event on Jan. 26, 2014. "I just want it to be fun and show our love," Giudici said. "Other than that I know it will be a beautiful wedding."
