The countdown to Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich’s wedding is on! The couple is expected to tie the knot next weekend and the Dancing with the Stars judge has let some secrets slip on what guests can expect on her big day.
"I never thought that we would do [a choreographed dance], but [Brooks] really wants to do a first dance and have it be like a special thing," she told Entertainment Tonight. The blond bombshell also added that she is hoping that one of her favourite artists, Norway’s DJ Kygo, will perform at the reception. "I’m going to pull out all the favours," said the bride.
The 27-year-old is keeping tight lipped on big details, like where and when the ceremony will take place, but has shared that her wedding day will be “pretty small and intimate” despite having a large family (Julianne is one of five kids). I have a really big family. Brooks has sort of a moderate-sized family, so regardless of how small we want it, it’s still going to be big," she said.
Guaranteed to be on the guest list are Julianne’s BFF Nina Dobrev, her adorable dogs Lexi and Harley and brother Derek, who told Entertainment Tonight that he has his own plans for his sister’s big day. "I think I will be making a little speech. There's always surprises with my family that aren't planned, so there [will be] plenty of surprises."
Julianne and Brooks, who was born in Saskatchewan, announced their engagement in August 2015 after almost two years of dating. The couple first met each other after actor Teddy Sears (Masters of Sex) introduced Julianne, his co-star in the horror movie Curve, to the former Washington Capitals player in 2013.
