Dancing With the Stars couple Artem Chigvintsev and Nikki Bella have exciting news for their fans – they’ve set a wedding date. Read on for all the details of their upcoming nuptials, including the fact that the nuptials could be televised.
Nikki & Artem’s wedding is coming ‘very soon’
In an interview at the 2022 Kids’ Choice Awards, Nikki shared Us weekly that they set a date and it’s right around the corner.
“We have set a wedding date. I’ll point out very soon that it’s fall 2022,” Nikki said, adding that her twin sister, Brie Bella, “needs to start occupying herself because she’s a maid of honor and I have to take her to work.”
“Which means I have to give a heartfelt speech, not be drunk and have my s*** together,” Brie quipped.
Nikki also revealed that they’ve “started” looking at venues and may have found whoever they want to “lock up” for their date.
But they won’t go crazy with the wedding planning. Like Nikki said People During the Kids’ Choice Awards, they have other things to do that are just as important, like “building a house right now” and saving for their son Matteo’s education.
“Life is really stressful. We are rarely at home at the same time. There’s a lot more, I don’t want to say important things in life, but a lot more [to focus on]Nikki said, adding, “We want Matteo to go to private school, so to spend at our wedding what private schools cost on flowers, I think I’ll go with education.”
Nikki and Artem met on season 25 of Dancing With the Stars, where they placed seventh. But they didn’t start dating until over a year later.
The wedding could be televised
Brie and Nikki starred in their own reality show, Total Bellas, on E! from 2016 to 2021. Though the show was canceled, Nikki revealed to Us Weekly that the network, which they called home for five years, may be interested in broadcasting their wedding to Artem.
“It could be on E! So the world can see it,” Nikki said.
She also revealed that she’s very nervous about her wedding dance, so she’s planning to spend all summer preparing.
“The other day I was literally saying to Artem, ‘You have to start choreographing it now because I want to be able to learn it all summer on my hand. Easy.’ But I have to start now,” Nikki said, adding that they hope American Idol alum Haley Reinhart will sing “Can’t Help Falling in Love” for her first dance.
Artem, who’s been a Dancing With the Stars pro since 2014, should have no problem choreographing a beautiful first dance. Not only is he a seasoned pro, Paris Hilton hired him last November to teach her and then-fiancé Carter Reum a dance for their wedding reception.
Paris told Nikki during a episode of her podcast that Artem couldn’t have been nicer and Nikki said that Artem had “so much fun” doing it.
Nikki also admitted, “I feel like there’s going to be such high expectations for our first dance. [T]Hey, they’re going to be expecting a World Cup-style dance, that waltz that’s going to be unreal, and I’m going to be like, ‘Oh my God!’”
