Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev were planning their dream wedding. And then the Coronavirus pandemic hit. Like so many other couples, the pair are rethinking their wedding plans.
Nikki And Artem’s Plans May Be On Hold, But They’re Still Pressing Onward
“I want to make sure the world is in such a clear space,” Nikki said during an interview earlier this year. “The day I get married, I just want a massive party. I want a bash. I want everything I’ve dreamed of.”
“At the end of the day, it’s a celebration and not just a thing you attend for the sake of attending,” Artem echoed similar sentiments. “And both of us feel the same way about that. Once we can figure out what that would look like, it’s going to start moving quickly.”
They’re still figuring some things out, but right now it seems like holding it in another location is the right choice.
“We’re actually moving [the wedding] from L.A. to somewhere else … not sure if I am allowed to say where yet, but there’s definitely plans,” Artem, told Access Hollywood. “The only thing we know that we want to make sure is that we don’t have to be wearing masks during the wedding.”
Nikki wants their son, Matteo, to be involved in the wedding. At this rate, she says he may be walking by the time the wedding actually happens.
Artem Is Still Competing On Dancing With The Stars
In any case, the couple will definitely have to wait until Dancing With The Stars is finished. Artem and his partner Kaitlyn Bristowe currently top the leader board. Many fans think they will win it all this year. It would be a first for Artem, and he’s very happy to be back on the dance floor. Meanwhile, Nikki and Matteo cheer him on from home.
Artem definitely misses his family, but they fully support him.
If you follow Nikki Bella on Instagram, you can typically find her asking fans to vote for Artem and Kaitlyn on Monday nights. Check out one of her sweet posts here:

Hi Bella Army ❤️ First, I LOVE and MISS you all SO much! I can’t wait till we can do meet & greets again & just hug each other! 🤗 Tonight please tune to @dancingabc & vote for @theartemc & @kaitlynbristowe (My @wwe Universe I know it’s RAW so just send a text and vote! ☺️) Let me tell you why so it doesn’t seem bias. Kaitlyn has an incredible story before she hit the dance floor. She’s overcome a lot, her story is incredible, she wears her heart on her sleeve & she is truly living her dream right now. I think that’s really special. So is my Artem. He got so depressed when he couldn’t dance last season. It was really hard to see him like that. I have a very competitive personality (as you all see on Total Bellas lol) so it was really hard to go through the lows with him but I did, I never left his side. I tried everything I could to lift him up. And now to see him home, in the ballroom, living his dream & what he is meant to do has been incredible! It has meant so much to me! Look at him every Monday night! The smile! I honestly feel like his face will break if he smiles any bigger 🥰 I honestly can write a novel more about Artem & how deserving he is for these moments. ❤️ He finally has a partner that can take him all the way to the mirror ball trophy. They click, they have chemistry, they deliver every week, they truly make that dance floor magical. What makes them even better is the vote of the people! So make them the People’s Champ! (Thank you Rock lol) they truly are electrifying! And I know they say this season is for Matteo but for me it’s for Artem, bc he deserves a partner like Kaitlyn and it’s for Kaitlyn bc this is a dream come true for her. They truly are putting in the work to be the best this season! So get attached! And VOTE! Every week! Put it in your alerts! And you can ONLY vote during East Coast times! So that’s 8-10pm EST! Text Kaitlyn to 21523 or head to dwtsvote.abc.com I promise your votes to them are beyond worth it! So since tonight is for @jason_tartick LETTTS GGOOOO Bella Army! Oh and go vote for my SEXIEST NEW DAD of 2020!! 😻 @people #teamwillyouacceptthisdance #dwts #bellaarmy #werunit #weruleit #forlife #forartemandkaitlyn
It doesn’t seem like Nikki and Artem have set a date yet. After all, they may be waiting until the Coronavirus situation settles down a little bit. Even if they don’t have it in Los Angeles, some of their close friends and family members will likely be uncomfortable with traveling.
Will you be voting for Artem and Kaitlyn? You can’t disappoint Nikki and Matteo! Tune in to Dancing With The Stars for Monday night’s episode at 8 PM standard time on ABC. They may be winning, but there are a few couples that are hot on their tails. Who will win it all? Let us know what you think in the comments.
