Break out the family jewels.

Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed have set a date for their years-in-the-making nuptials, E! News confirmed Thursday. They'll do the deed at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

So when's the magic day?

It's Oct. 1! Not so coincidentally, that's just three days before the seventh season premiere of A&E's Gene Simmons Family Jewels, which will follow the couple and their two kids as mom and dad get ready to tie the knot after 28 years together.

The KISS rocker popped the question while they were vacationing in Belize, an intimate and romantic moment that was the highlight of the show's sixth season finale in July—and a pretty emotional capper, considering so much of the season focused on Simmons and Tweed's volatile relationship.

But Simmons had figured a few things out by season's end.

"I come with so much baggage, but you're the only friend I've got. You're the only one I love...and you're the only one I ever will love," he told Tweed, who dissolved into tears before saying yes.
