Start practicing your wedding dance moves now! Over a year after getting engaged—on the Dancing With the Stars ballroom floor, naturally—this DWTS couple has set a wedding date. Well, hopefully... But Emma Slater and Sasha Farber are definitely at least a few box steps closer to saying I do, and we can't wait.
In October of last year, Slater and Farber took to the DWTS ballroom to perform a routine—but little did Slater know that it was all an elaborate rouse for her sweetheart to pop the question!
"I've been meaning to do this for such a long time," Farber said after performing his dance with Slater. Then, dropping to one knee, he pulled an engagement ring from his back pocket. "I love you so, so much. Will you marry me?" As Slater exclaimed her yes and the two embraced, streamers poured down from the ceiling and a giant screen flashed "She said YES!" behind them. And that's how you propose, folks!
But since the question had been popped, the couple has been seemingly slow with their wedding plans. Hey, can you blame them? These two are busy pirouetting and performing on TV every Monday night! However, it finally seems like Slater and Farber are getting to the nitty-gritty of planning. They've even set a date! (Kinda.)
We'll take it! Although Slater didn't reveal the exact date so we could all mark our calendars, we're just happy that she and Farber are getting closer to tying the knot and getting serious about wedding planning. “Things have been picking up this last week. I’m in the process of sorting out invitations,” she said. “I’m going to be crazy strange bridezilla doing my wedding planning on tour, but we’re going to make it work.”
At least she'll probably have some busy bridal bees to help her, as Slater also said that some of her fellow dancers from DWTS will be included in the wedding party. “We’re not going to be that posh, elegant wedding. We want it to be a party of love. I want to have all our friends there,” she said. “We’re going to focus a lot on the entertainment and I have a some surprises. We want it to be crazy. We want all kinds of really fun entertainment stuff.”
Crazy? All kinds of fun? Did we mention that we can't wait?!
