Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd, both former pro dancers on Dancing With the Stars, got engaged last weekend. The couple is already talking about having a big wedding.

It was on December 5 in Miami when Maksim CHmerkovskiy popped the question while the two were performing at the Olympia Theatre. Peta Murgatroyd was all too happy to say “Yes.”

While at the Winter Wonderland Ball for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in Hollywood on Saturday, the happy couple chatted with People magazine about their wedding plans.

“A castle, Maksim Chmerkovskiy said.

“A castle with a carriage,” Peta Murgatroyd added.

Peta plans to be an elegant bride on her big day.

“I do want a long train,” she said. “And I just want my loved ones around me–only the people that just genuinely adore us.”

“That’s about a 500-person wedding,” Maks added.

The Dancing With the Stars pros haven't set a wedding date yet. It's never too early to start dreaming about those important details, however.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy recently admitted he almost got cold feet when he proposed to his beloved.

“This was pre-planned in my head for a long time,” he said. “But just like everything else, I plan it and then right before, I’m like, ‘Maybe I should rethink it.’ I knew I was going to do it, I just didn’t know what to say until the last second. I knew how I felt, but it wasn’t something you can write and practice as a speech.”

Everything went smoothly for Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Peta Murgatroyd accepted his marriage proposal and will one day in the not-so-far-off future become his wife.

Were you surprised to learn Maks and Peta got engaged? Do you expect they will truly invite 500 people to their wedding?
