Karina Smirnoff Sets a Wedding Date
The Dancing with the Stars pro will tie the knot with Brad Penny next January, she tells PEOPLE
Karina Smirnoff has found her wedding dress. Actually, she’s found six of them.
“We’re down to six, which is better than 20,” the Dancing with the Stars pro told PEOPLE on Saturday at Tao Las Vegas. “You always have to look at the glass half full.”
Smirnoff, who will marry baseball player Brad Penny on Jan. 21, 2012, said she will soon begin trying them on and figuring out which dress is “the one,” but she knows one thing the dress must have – a train.
“I’m very open to the colors, the setting, the flowers. I’m very easy,” said Smirnoff, 33. “The only thing I do want is that big dress with the train. Even if it’s just me walking in a dress, I’m all good.”
Whichever dress she eventually picks will be “in the grand scheme of things,” she said.
The couple, set to hold the wedding in the Caribbean, are not revealing exactly where the nuptials will take place, only saying that it will be a “destination wedding” and quite the melting pot of cultures.
“I have a lot of family and friends that live in Europe and Israel, and Brad has a big family in Oklahoma,” Smirnoff said. It’s going to be a very diverse, colorful crowd.”
