Just don’t let him dance with the bride

Steve Wozniak Karina Smirnoff

may have been booted off “Dancing With the Stars” this week, but they’ll still be friends.

“He definitely is going to be in my wedding,” Smirnoff told

Smirnoff is engaged to

Maksim Chmerkovskiy Denise Richards

before she was cut last week.

Smirnoff said she wasn’t surprised she and Wozniak went home.

“I think Steve had a little more in him, as far as entertainment value, and could really please people at home,” she said. “We did much more than anyone even on the show expected from us.

“You can’t compare Steve to

Shawn Johnson

. Dance-wise, I had a little bit more work. But then personality-wise, I think he is top notch.”

Even though she’s been voted off, Smirnoff said she’ll be back on the show next week.

“We are dancing to ‘At Last,’ and

Etta James

is singing!” she said. “She’s a legend! You don’t get many chances in life for something like that!”

And yes, she’ll get to dance with her honey — at last.
