Dancing with the Stars pro Mark Ballas is a busy man, but not too busy to dedicate time to wedding planning. Between his latest stint as Frankie Valli on Broadway's Jersey Boys and his longer role as co-lead in Alexander Jean (the band he formed with fiancée BC Jean), Ballas has made room to have a hand in nuptial prep.
Back in April, Ballas told People that he's an "involved groom," and that the couple's determined to make sure everything's "100 percent perfect" on their big day.
Since then, planning has gotten more serious, but Ballas confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that they're still "enjoying it." While BC Jean was just in New York for Ballas's opening night, the singer has returned to their LA home to continue working on the wedding.
On top of getting ready for broadway, @bcjean & I have been working on planning the wedding. There's a lot going on LOL.. Yesterday We went to @asweetdesign to try cake & they were all delicious... It's safe to say we were in heaven. I'm actually finding all the planning really interesting & fun. Trying to be a hands on groom Wait till you see this cake #asweetdesigncakes #MarkandBCWedding
"She's been looking at tablecloths, settings and plates and dishes and the cutlery and what cocktails we're having. She's been Facetiming me in all of it. It's amazing," shared Ballas, adding, "It's coming up really quick, so it's great." Despite their hectic schedules, the actor tries "not to get overwhelmed." "I just take each day as it comes and I'm blessed and honored right now," he said in the interview.
According to Instagram, the pair has also engaged in some cake-tasting and invite-making, the latter of which they plan to custom design.
Guess the cats out of the bag... We are getting married!!! I am surprised we were able to keep it hush hush for as long as we did, but I am thankful for the privacy we had to celebrate the exciting news over the holidays with our close friends and family. But now the secrets out and we are very happy to announce our engagement to the world! My love @markballas took my breath away and really out did himself when he asked me to spend forever with him on November 25th 2015. I can't wait to marry the King of my Heart & best friend and continue our journey of forever with love, music and adventures. #BCBallas
Mark Ballas and BC Jean have been going strong since 2012, and just last Thanksgiving, the couple got engaged.
"The day before the proposal, I had the house literally turned into Woodstock," Ballas told Access Hollywood. He lined the couple's driveway with petals from—you guessed it—roses and violets, and put up "posters of all her favorite bands everywhere" inside the house.
