If you want to learn how to be a cool, calm, collected, and seriously chill bride and groom, take a cue from Julianne Hough and her hubby-to-be, Canadian hockey star Brooks Laich. "We kind of just started [planning], and we were like, 'You know what? Let's just chill. Let's just enjoy the engagement process and the fun of it.' So we haven't really gotten into it," Hough told Us Weekly. "We're kind of terrible." Enjoying the engagement period doesn't sound so terrible to us! As for the guest list, the couple is "keeping it pretty small and intimate," she said. "It's mainly just friends and family."

The Grease Live! star announced her engagement to Laich over Instagram in August of 2015, captioning the photo, "We are overwhelmed with joy and excitement to share with you our recent engagement! #fiancé #love".

"It was magical and sweet. We were at home, romantic, and relaxed, which is perfectly very 'us,'" Hough wrote on her blog. "We stood on the deck, watching the sun set over the lake and listening to our favorite songs. Not even for a second did I expect that beautiful, serene scene was about to become one of the most meaningful moments of our lives.
"Getting engaged has been about much more than the engagement itself," the Dancing with the Stars alum continued. "The rush of love from friends and family, plus the support from all of you has been overwhelming. The love being poured into this next step of our relationship is incredible, and I'm so very grateful."
