LA QUINTA, CALIFORNIA: Theresa Nist gets a second chance at love. Theresa’s wedding dress for “The Golden Wedding” has piqued the interest of “The Golden Bachelor” viewers more than ever.

Designer Randi Rahm gave stylist Cary Fetman a selection of about 15 dresses (one costing $60,000) that she thought would suit Theresa and Leslie Fhima, and they both amazed her with their choices.

Theresa chose a sequined dress that was both beautiful and sensual. Theresa’s dress has a provocative slit, sequins, a plunging neckline and a faded texture, and it’s part of Randi’s collection.

When you see this outfit and realize it’s by Randi Rahm, you know the designer loves it! Fashion these days is more about suits, but what she loves about these dresses is that they are for real women and they both look stunning.

The designer was delighted that these women leaned into her and chose stunning, sensual dresses, because everyone should feel attractive in my designs, regardless of age, height, size or other factors. Fans are now curious to know about her wedding dress and its price.

The only other wedding Bachelor Nation witnessed was when The Bachelor’s Catherine Giudici married Sean Lowe. “The Bachelor bride wore a Monique Lhuillier strapless lace, fit-to-flare wedding dress with a mega sparkly belt – Monique’s Spring/Summer 2013 Perfection, minus the bow. Indeed, perfection.

Her 12 bridesmaids wore pale pink dresses from Monique’s bridesmaids collection.

Although it’s not confirmed whether Randi or Monique will return with their magic for “The Golden Wedding,” Bachelor Nation is surely hoping for another success from her.

Theresa has ideas for how she wants her dress and veil to appear, as well as ideas for “what the cake should look like.” She chose floral hues and plans to buy a lot of them “because my daughter and I are both gardeners,” she told PEOPLE.

“I have roses and gardens in abundance.”
