They also have chosen most of the songs for the wedding. They also have their dance song narrowed to about 5. They also have picked out their colors, the and photographer, and the videographer. So, quite a bit wedding planning has been done, and they are working on more.

Too awesome. Special thanks to Lori and Jennie for all the info.

What Dancing With The Stars Julianne Hough Would Like Her Wedding To Smell Like

Dancing With The Stars Julianne Hough gives some hints to US Weekly on her wedding. Note how she’d like it to be “woodsy”. This sounds beautiful….

“I literally have every designer you can think of on my wedding Pinterest board,” Julianne Hough, engaged to NHL fiancé Brooks Laich, tells Stylish. “Monique Lhuillier, Marchesa, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera and Elie Saab … the list goes on.”

Although the Dancing With the Stars judge, 28, admits she’s “totally behind” on planning (“It’s so funny, last year we were like, ‘We’ll take a year to do this’ and then this year we’re like ‘Maybe we should take another year’”), she has already made up her mind on what she wants her wedding to smell like. “It will probably be outdoors because we’re such outdoorsy people, so I want it to smell woodsy, fresh with florals and campfire-esque,” she says. Totally dreamy, right?

Lots more at US Weekly including her love for Giorgio Beverly Hills Glam.

Will Julianne Hough Return To Dancing With The Stars? (New Interview)

Julianne Hough talked to Entertainment Tonight about how she keeps in shape. She also talked about her upcoming wedding plans, a Move Experience she’s planning to do with Derek (Bring it on, Guys), and a possible return to Dancing With The Stars (oh, I hope she does).

As for if she’ll ever return to Dancing With the Stars, Hough is keeping her options open. She shares that the hit ABC show did in fact ask her to come on as a judge again, but she currently wants to focus on her solo career.

“They are always going to be in my family. It’s where I started,” she says about DWTS. “It’s where I came from. If they want me to be a part of it in some aspect, of course. Absolutely. They’ve asked me to come back to judge but we’ll see what happens. Like I said, I’m still focused on my personal journey and my personal career. We’ll see.”

The same goes for her brother, six-time DWTS champ Derek Hough.

“He’s kind of in that stage of his life too where he’s really focusing on his personal career and journey,” she explains. “He’s got a lot of amazing things coming up. We’re still very passionate about our Move brand—which was our big tour that we went on over the last two years. There may be a third one coming soon — some sort of Move experience. So, we’re definitely focused on that too.”

DWTS Julianne Hough Has Purchased Two Dresses For Her Wedding, Wedding Before Year’s End

Just a little fun rumor from the Las Vegas Sun. Not sure it’s true, but they are reporting Julianne Hough has purchased two dresses for her wedding to Brooks Laich. Not only that, the article says Julianne let it slip that the wedding will take place by the end of the year.

“Dancing With the Stars” pro dancer and judge Julianne Hough, who hosted Sunday’s 2016 Miss USA Pageant at T-Mobile Arena alongside Terrence J (“106 & Park”) on Fox, let slip that she has purchased two dresses for her wedding to fiance Toronto Maple Leafs star Brooks Laich.

The onetime Las Vegas resident and sister of “DWTS” pro dancer Derek Hough says she has two outfits selected — one for the ceremony and one for the reception to take place before year’s end.

Awww, I can’t wait for this event. More at the the Las Vegas Sun on other rumors out there. Thanks to Lori for the heads up.

Dancing With The Stars Julianne Hough Graces Cosmopolitan Magazine February 2016, New Interview

More Julianne Hough goodies. If you go to Cosmopolitan, you can see Julianne gracing the cover for their February issue. You can also see another photo and read a new interview. Below she comments on what she’d like to be respected for. She also talks of how she met Brooks Laich. More at the link. Thanks to Lori for sending.

On not wanting to be known for the very thing that propelled her to superstardom: “If someone told me they hadn’t seen Dancing With the Stars, I would say, ‘Oh, good!’ Everything I was getting was amazing, but I felt like, I’m so much more than this. I want to be respected as a singer and an actress.”

On how she met fiancé Brooks Laich through Masters of Sex star Teddy Sears: “I did a horror movie that never got released. I’m convinced the only reason I was meant to do that movie was to meet my fiancé. Six years prior, Teddy Sears, my costar, tried to invite Brooks—who was a good friend of his—to visit him in L.A. Brooks, who knows nothing about pop culture, joked, ‘What are you going to do—hook me up with that Juicy Fruit starlet?’ He’d seen the commercial and was like, ‘Where do I meet a girl like that?’ I was the girl in the commercial! Teddy remembered that comment and texted Brooks, ‘You’re never going to guess who I’m doing a movie with.'”

Our Weekly Fashion Blog With Carrie Ann Inaba, Julianne Hough, and Erin Andrews For DWTS21 Week 4

I didn’t mean to leave Erin out of these posts, but she’s blogging over on People this season. So, when possible, we’ll have one fashion post for all three of them.

So, what did you think of the show this week? I definitely missed Tom this week, but glad that he’s able to be there with his dad, it’s not an easy time. Alfonso didn’t do badly, but he definitely showed just HOW GOOD Tom is at his job! This is one week where I really enjoy the addition of contemporary and jazz, because most celebrities pick something sad for their most memorable year, and without these two styles, we get a whole lot of badly danced rumba.  Each and every one of them seemed to be trying their hardest to show their story through dance– Some were just more successful than others. I think that Paula definitely should be the next one off, she’s the weakest link left. In most seasons, by the time the lowest tier dancers have left, it’s pretty clear who remaining are in that next tier, and who are in the top tier. I’m not seeing as big a division this season, it may be there, but I’m just not seeing it. Keep watching Heidi’s Number posts, because we could start hearing about “shocking exits” once Paula leaves. We know that none of those “shocking exits” are ever truly shocking, because we’ve seen the numbers, and Heidi’s explained who is most in danger of leaving, and why. And in case I’ve not said it before, Thank you, Heidi, for the hard work to put together the numbers posts each season.

Carrie Ann wrote her weekly blog at Parade on the “most emotional week” on DWTS. About Most Memorable Year week, she says: Read more..

Carrie Ann Inaba and Julianne Hough Write On DWTS Season 21 Week 3 By Lori

AH, DWTS! That show we know and love and occasionally strongly dislike. What would we ever do without its constant need to create as much drama as possible? Sometimes I think that we should have a running tally of all of the…. Crud… that they make us wade through and revisit during the down time after the season is over. I’m not sure how to find the humor in some of it, however.

This week’s biggest manufactured dramas is still ongoing, and has BY FAR surpassed the rest of the manufactured drama from those silly scripted packages (but at least trying to get the gullible public into thinking Alek is interested in Lindsay’s other childhood best friend keeps the public’s eyes off the real budding romance. Need to find some silver lining in the whole thing. Afterall, they owe them that much, especially after what they did last season). Yes, Kim’s stroke. Yes, I do believe that her leaving the show is the BEST thing for her and for her family. How TPTB went about it was wrong, and in my opinion, only meant to create the drama we now have. It’s creating some free publicity for the show, and they only had to COMPLETELY BLINDSIDE one of their pros and a celebrity they knew could quickly and easily create the buzz they want! Don’t make Tom be the bad guy, do the dirty work yourselves!

Carrie Ann addresses it quickly in her Parade blog by saying:

Last night’s sudden elimination of Kim Zolciak Biermann was a shocker. It was the first time in 21 seasons of Dancing with the Stars that anyone had to be dismissed from the competition due to her inability to perform. Kim was unable to dance last night after suffering a mini stroke last week while traveling. I wish her a speedy recovery and hope that she now has the time to take good care of herself. This was a first for DWTS. In past seasons, Dorothy Hamill, Jewel and Nancy O’Dell dropped out of the competition due to injuries, but they did so willingly. Jewel and Nancy O’Dell dropped out right before the season started back in 2009. And Dorothy Hamill pulled out of the competition mid-season due to a serious back injury in 2013. Injuries are a scary part of the territory of being on DWTS. A stroke is a whole different thing. And it’s very serious. So take care Kim, we are all rooting for you!

Hmmm… I don’t know what to think about what she says. What are your thoughts?

Carrie Ann’s highlight dances were Nick and Sharna’s, Alexa and Mark’s, Tamar and Val’s, Alek and Lindsay’s and Bindi and Derek’s. And she spends some time to give advice to the rest of the group, so go over there to check out what she has to say.

And Julianne’s weekly fashion blog over at InStyle has been posted with some behind the scenes. And surprisingly enough, SHE did her own make up on Monday! And I loved it, she did a great job! And yellow is definitely a great color on her.

I want to end this on a happy note, so if you want a good case of AWWWW and possibly some melted insides, check out this recent post from Washington Post sports page, they interviewed Julianne’s fiance, Brooks Laich.

Also, who wore it better this week: Julianne or Carrie Ann?
