Brides: Kym Johnson Just Revealed What Wedding Dress She Won’t Be Wearing Down the Aisle — and It’s a Total Shocker

Jun 23rd, 2016

Kym Johnson is pirouetting into wedding planning. The Dancing with the Stars pro has been engaged to her former dance partner, Shark Tank‘s Robert Herjavec since February and like any excited bride-to-be, has been occupying herself with the big day details ever since! (Between endless rehearsals, learning intense choreography, and dancing on live TV, of course… Phew, this is one busy bride!) First, we caught Johnson looking for some bridal inspiration in an issue of BRIDES magazine. And her social media pages were previously flooding with potential big day ideas. Now, Johnson is busy deciding on one of our favorite wedding details of all — the dress! While — like any other bride-to-be will tell you — there are seemingly endless styles out there to choose from, Johnson already knows what kind wedding dress she definitely doesn’t want to rock come the big day.

When the Shark Tank star first slipped that engagement sparkler on the finger of the dancing pro, we were already envisioning Johnson donning a wedding dress as sparkly as a disco ball for the big day — much like the flirty frocks she rocks on the DWTS dance floor. So we were shocked to discover that Johnson plans to go in an entirely different direction when it comes to her wedding day wear.

“A lot of [the dresses] I tried on I felt like I was putting a Dancing With the Stars dress on I’d worn before,” Johnson told Us Weekly of her hunt for the perfect dress. “I’m used to wearing slinky sort of lace things, a lot of beading on Dancing With the Stars, so I wanted to stay clear of that.” Looks like Johnson will be hanging up her go-to glitter come the big day. Surprising, right? We totally thought she’d be a beaded ball gown type of bride!

Instead, Johnson revealed that her wedding gown will be “just very simple, actually,” and her vision is so clear, she’s actually lending a hand in the design process. “It’s been a really fun process [to help design the dress],” Johnson shared. “A lot of designers will look at me like, ‘What?’ But I’m used to doing it for the show!” Sounds like the woman has got it all under control!

Whether she’s in a beaded ball gown or simple sheath, we have no doubt that Johnson will be one beautiful bride on her big day!
