Dancing With the Stars judge and bride-to-be Julianne Hough is in the throws of wedding planning! After getting engaged to her Washington Capitals hockey player fiancé, Brooks Laich, back in August — and with the cutest social media engagement announcement, we might add — Hough is getting down to business when it comes to planning her nuptials, which, of course, means nailing down that perfect wedding dress.
The 27-year-old dancing pro, who has joined MPG Sport as their brand ambassador, recently opened up to PeopleStyle about trying her hand — a hand which is decked out in a five-plus carat, oval-cut, Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring, mind you — at designing future seasons of athletic gear. Lucky for us, the question of whether or not Hough might don a DIY bridal gown also came up. "It's a pretty big stretch from designing athletic wear to a wedding gown. I think I'll leave that to the experts for now!"

So even though Hough, who regularly blogs on her personal lifestyle website Jules, won't be attempting to design her own wedding dress, the bride-to-be has given us several sneak peeks into what her upcoming nuptials might include — everything from the season, to the décor to her bridal gown.
Most recently, Hough teased to her fans and followers that she and her future hubby might tie the knot in a winter wedding. A detailed post titled "Winter Wedding Wonderland" captures the bride-to-be's interest in a possible "wintry theme" for her wedding, with images of fur shrugs, satin gloves, towering centerpieces, budding hydrangea bouquets, dainty décor, and a berry-topped white wedding cake. Hough revealed: "The thought of getting married surrounded by snowcapped mountains and grey-ish white skies sounds pretty magical."
In an earlier post, the Footloose actress dished on her bridal style with a gown mood board that included five different wedding dresses. So while Hough might not be designing her own gown, it's clear that the actress isn't lacking in options for her wedding dress!
