This summer, the Dancing With the Stars family will be celebrating the weddings of three cast members. Ballroom pro Peta Murgatroyd is marrying fellow pro, Maks Chmerkovskiy, and judge Julianne Hough is marrying her beau, Brooks Laich. What some fans may not realize is that the couples are getting married on the very same day.
Both couples are prepared to tie the respective knots on Saturday, July 8. Murgatroyd and Chmerkovskiy will be saying their “I do’s” in front of family and friends in New York while Hough and Laich exchange vows at their ceremony, believed to be in California. According to Life & Style Magazine, the couples had no idea that they had chosen the same wedding date. Mutual friends of the couples have since been forced to choose which wedding they would attend.
“You have to be either Team Hough or Team Peta and Maks. There’s a lot of behind-the-scenes drama,” a source told Life & Style Magazine.
As of now, it’s unclear exactly which Dancing With the Stars cast members will attend which wedding. The most obvious wedding guests include, Hough’s brother, Derek Hough, who will be attending her wedding and Chmerkovskiy’s brother, Val, who will be attending his. Aside from blood relatives, the cast and crew has been left with a big decision to make.
Another similarity between the two weddings is clear: There will be a lot of dancing.
“Oh my goodness, he wants more than anything to dance. He’s always wanted to dance before he ever met me, so he’s always asking me to teach him and I’m like, ‘Ask Derek!’ I’m just pawning my brother off to him. So I think Derek and Brooks might have a first dance. That would be interesting, and a sight to see for sure,” Hough told People Magazine back in 2015.
