"We want to put a lot of emphasis into the entertainment," Slater explained to Us Weekly
. "I really want our guests to leave going, 'Oh my god. That's not what I expected at all.' We really want to have some sort of surprises."
"It's gonna be one of those weddings where we want surprises every 10 to 15 minutes for the guests," Farber teased.
"Like a show!" Slater continued. "We want them to be like, 'Oh, this isn't just a DJ! Oh my god, this is a show' and 'This person's gonna come out!' and 'These dancers are gonna appear!' It's going to be so much fun."
Considering the pro dancing couple's background, it's safe to assume that they will also have "a pretty crazy first dance." Not surprisingly, they also intend to celebrate their wedding with other DWTS cast members.
"We were looking at the list, it looks like kind of a wrap party to me," Slater said. "I was like, 'Oh, we'll just invite everyone from the wrap party.'"
Farber and Slater were close friends before they started dating on and off from 2011 to 2015. In December 2015, Farber confirmed that he was back with Slater. Farber popped the question at the end of a contemporary routine during an episode of Dancing with the Stars in October 2016.
Though the pair is caught up with all the planning, what they learn about each other and their relationship while they go through the wedding preparations is not lost on the couple.
"It's been a year since we've been engaged and now we're getting into crunch time with wedding planning and everything," Slater said. "When you arrange a wedding, you realize if you've got what it takes to survive marriage and we have and this is really fun for us, is creating this special day."
"I've learned one thing... 'Yes,'" Farber said. "That's what I've learned. When Emma's like, 'Baby, what do you think of this color? Tell me what color you like.' I'm like, 'I like light blue.' And she's like, 'Yeah, what about light gold?' And I'm like, 'Yes, I love gold.'"
Farber and Slater have yet to reveal their wedding date.
