A Tale Of Two DWTS Weddings: Julianne Hough Vs. Peta Murgatroyd

They may compete on the dance floor but clearly the competition doesn’t stop there. Over the weekend, Dancing With The Stars hunk Maksim Chmerkovskiy married the beautiful Peta Murgatroyd at a breathtaking castle out on Long Island. Unfortunately, dancing co-star Julianne Hough didn’t RSVP “attending” because she was a little busy getting married to Brooks Laich, Canadian ice hockey player. Let’s take a walk down the aisle and decide who wins the Mirrorball Trophy this round.

Location! Location! Location!

Max and Peta opted for a fairytale wedding and tied the knot at the beautiful Oheka Castle. Julianne and hubby Brooks decided to keep it nice and intimate out in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

Verdict: Max and Peta’s Disney movie wedding wins in our book! Because you can never go wrong with a castle.

The Dress

The Dress

Julianne wore a custom Marchesa gown at the altar while Peta WOWed guests with her off-the-shoulder, multi-tiered Karen Sabag Couture ball gown.

Verdict: Custom Marchesa for the win here!

The Groom

The Groom

Brooks decided to leave his gear at home and went with a classic black and white tuxedo. Maks thought the bride shouldn’t be the only one wearing white at this party and went with a slimming white tux.

Verdict: Both men looked so dapper but we love a traditionalist – Brooks!

Squad vs. Squad


Julianne’s squad pre-gamed with the couple in Lake Couer d’Alene, while Peta and Maks threw a pool after-bash. Needless to say, both events made some waves.

Verdict: Both bashes required inflatable swans, but lakes are gross. Maks and Peta!

The Winners

The Kiss

The final score?! It’s a tie! Both brides looked as gorgeous as ever and did their big days their own way.

Because when it comes to weddings, it’s never a competition!
