Kellie Pickler’s fiancé is a snapper on the dance floor – and that’s not a good thing.
“It’s a disaster,” she tells PEOPLE Country in its September issue. Speaking of her songwriter beau Kyle Jacobs, the star says, “He’s a snapper. He just sways back and forth and snaps his finger.”
For this reason, as the country star prepares to tie the knot with Jacobs, she says they will skip the first dance. And the big day plans continue: The couple will exchange vows in a church – with their entourage of pets in attendance.
“I’m thinking of having the python be the ringbearer!” says Pickler, 24, with a laugh. “We’ve been talking about incorporating the dogs – they’re like our kids. But we wouldn’t want an accident to happen down the aisle.”
