Wedding planning while working your regular nine-to five is tough enough, but just imagine doing it between endless rehearsals, memorizing scripts and choreography, and pirouetting on live TV every week! 'Tis the life of bride-to-be Julianne Hough, whose crazy schedule doesn't allot much time for planning her wedding to Canadian hockey player Brooks Laich. Sure, she probably has a list of celeb-approved wedding planners at her disposal — or could maybe recruit her Dancing with the Stars co-stars for help! — but this bride-to-be is in no rush. At a recent red carpet event, Hough got real about how those wedding day plans are shaping up — slowly, oh so slowly...

The Dancing with the Stars pro had originally planned to wed her hunky hockey sweetheart this summer, after getting engaged last August. But because of their constantly conflicting schedules and just the sheer feat of figuring out all of the wedding day details (we know you all feel her pain...), the pair still has yet to choose a date! And they sound a-okay with waiting a little longer to tie the knot. "We might get married in 10 years," Hough joked with Entertainment Tonight. "Who knows?" Um, please don't scare us like that, Hough! We don't think we can wait 10 years to see you all decked out in white.

While we know it probably won't take years for these two cuties to tie the knot, they're definitely taking a more chilled-out approach to tackling that mountain of planning. "We started [wedding planning] and were like, 'You know what? Let's just chill and enjoy the engagement process and the fun of it,'" Hough continued to Us Weekly. "So we haven't really got into it really. We're kind of terrible." Not terrible! Understandable... Brides-to-be are their own type of superhero after all, fearlessly tackling everything from diabolical mother-in-laws to villainous vendors. And we totally get that Hough and her almost-hubby need to slow down their walk to the aisle.

So now with a wedding-free summer ahead of them, does this engaged duo have any special plans? "We finally get to actually be in the same city, so that's nice," Hough said. "So we're just chilling at the house, cooking dinner, hanging out by the pool and relaxing." Ahhh, now that sounds much less stressful than planning a wedding! But for when the big day finally does arrive, Hough does a few ideas... "It's mainly just friends and family," the star said of the guest list. "We're keeping it pretty small and intimate." We hope that still includes us!
