If you somehow managed to miss the monumental news that reality TV star Kim Kardashian and her beau, NJ Nets basketball player Kris Humphries, are getting married this weekend, we commend you.

If you’re like us though, and actually indulge in a little guilty TV pleasure every now and then with the Kardashian clan, then you are most likely waiting in anticipation to find out as many details as possible about the reality TV wedding of the year. Already rumored to be on the same general scale as the British Royal Wedding, Kim and her mother have been planning the super secret nuptials for more than a month, which probably feels like a ton of time compared to sister Khloe’s 9-day whirlwind!

One thing we weren’t expecting? So much Latin flavor! From the guest list (rumored to include Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria, Mario Lopez and Demi Lovato among others) to their opening dance, we’re all over this event. We chatted with part-Mexican ballroom dancer Mark Ballas from Dancing with the Stars to get the inside scoop on Kim and Kris’s important first dance. “We had a little session. It’s just a sweet moment and they reached out to get some help,” dished Ballas.

But don’t expect a big production when it comes to this special moment for Kim and Kris. “It’s not going to be a full on production or anything,” Ballas added in an attempt to manage expectations. “Don’t expect them to be doing the rumba or anything like that!”

Ballas says they are going for more of a romantic moment and nothing too choreographed. “It’s just a ‘We just got married. I love you…let’s dance,” says Ballas.

I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
