Dancing With The Starscouple Karina and Maksim are right in the middle of planning for their wedding, which isscheduled for next summer. Although they are having a traditional wedding, the couple announced that they might be breaking a few rules…
You would think that with two professional dancers getting hitched therewould bean awesome first dance, as opposed to the awkward fumbling around that is usually on display at weddings. However,as reported by Marc Malkin ofE! News, the couple has decided not to have a first dance! What?!?
“We’re going to do a first song instead,” Smirnoff told E!. “Maks is going to sing to me, and I’m gonna do the backup sound. One of my favorite songs isI Can’t Take My Eyes Off You. ” Although too busy to do extensive planning the couple is sure that they will be inviting many of their pro dancing friends. “I love Lil’ Kim,” Smirnoff said. “She’s very, very sweet. She’s a great competitor, great performer, very classy and very graceful, so I’m hoping Kim walks away with the trophy.” [Unfortunately, as of last night that will definitely not be the case.]
Smifnoff says that the couple is going to take a vacation, where they will focus on making wedding plans. “We’re actually going to go and enjoy Paris for a week. I think that’s when we’re going to talk most about the wedding,”she said. However, kids aren’t going to be included in those plans anytime soon. Smirnoff said, “He wants it now and I’m trying to be smart about it…I’m trying to control the situation.”
