Wedding planning seems to be going swimmingly for HGTV star Drew Scott and his bride-to-be, Linda Phan. On top of securing a plush Italian location and making sure other little details are nailed down (sorry, I can’t resist making a good HGTV-adjacent pun), Scott is personally getting very excited about the big day for one special reason: He can’t wait to dance. That’s right; Scott can’t wait to hit the dance floor after he says I do to Phan.
In a recent interview with Us Weekly, Scott explained why he’s excited to dance at his wedding and how he got to this point. “I had no dance experience before,” he explained about his twin brother, Jonathan, passing along his Dancing with the Stars knowledge ahead of Scott’s big day. “But now we just want to dance every day. It’s definitely something we’ll be doing for life.” OK, just the mere image of the always-adorable Scott and Phan dancing on their wedding day and just being super-cute dancing together in the future is really making me swoon. These two!
But Scott isn’t only excited about the dancing. He’s also getting sentimental about getting to marry Phan, full stop. While speaking with Us Weekly, he had this absolutely adorable revelation about what else he’s looking forward to doing on his wedding day. “Looking into Linda’s eyes when she walks down the aisle,” Scott remarked. “And knowing that’s the lady I’m going to be with for the rest of my life. I’m going to be crying like a fool. But I knew from the moment I met her that she was the one for me.”
OK, this is literally too perfect. I can’t even handle it. Does anyone have a spare tissue I can borrow?
It’s been a long road to the altar for Scott and Phan, who have been engaged since December 2016. The pair got engaged after six years of dating, and now, two years later, it’s easy to see why Scott is both excited and maybe even a little antsy to get hitched. Even back in 2016, Scott gave the impression he’s always known Phan was his person, joking with People magazine about why he proposed after dating for six years before giving a very precious reason.
“I mean, for six years I’ve been waiting for her to propose to me, and I just figured she’s not going to do it,” he quipped before continuing, “No, when you have someone as amazing as Linda, it was important to propose [because] I want to be with her for the rest of my life.”
The couple has been through quite a lot in the last two years. Not only have they been planning their big day, but they’ve also watched as Scott’s career has hit new highs over at HGTV, and they’ve actually filmed a TV show for the network themselves. They’ve been super-busy, but I’m willing to bet their wedding will serve as the sweet reward for all this hard work.
Happily, we won’t have to sit and wonder what Scott and Phan’s wedding day will be like — we’ll get to see it for ourselves with their newly announced wedding special for TLC. Brit + Co. reports that Drew and Linda Say I Do is set to air in June and promises to take fans of Scott and Phan right into the heart of their Italian wedding. Oh, I can’t wait!
