Johnny Weir dreams big.
The Olympic skater already married Russian law-school graduate Victor Voronov in a small civil ceremony in New York on Dec. 30, but now Weir has pushed back their plans for a big summer reception so that they can have a star-studded winter wonderland instead.
The skater's ultimate dream? To have his friend Sarah Jessica Parker officiate the ceremony and then take to the ice for a spin and a jump or two while Lady Gaga sings.
"We might try to incorporate figure skating," Weir, 27, told New York's Daily News on Monday, adding that the theme of the over-the-top celebration will be "snow, sparkly white and Russian."

Johnny Weir announced Thursday that he will return to competitive figure skating with the hopes of competing in the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia – and says his new husband is the biggest supporter of his goal to get back on the ice.
"We're very proud of this decision and it won't affect anything," said Weir, 27, who wed Victor Voronov in December. "I'll still wash boxers and cook dinner and clean the house and do everything I'm supposed to do as a happy husband."
Weir, who has not competed since the 2010 Olympics, said during a press conference that giving up his domestic newlywed routine will prove difficult, but that he's up for the challenge.

It's the ultimate gold medal: a wedding band!
Figure skating champion Johnny Weir and his boyfriend Victor Voronov have tied the knot. "I'm married!" Weir Tweeted. "No more livin' in sin!"
"Johnny Weir, 27, married Georgetown Law graduate, Victor Voronov, 28, in an early morning civil ceremony at the New York City Courthouse on Friday, Dec. 30, 2011," said Weir's rep. "The couple exchanged handwritten vows in the company of loving parents, Tony and Lili Voronov and Patti and John Weir. The couple has taken the new surname, Weir-Voronov, but professionally, Johnny will continue to be known as Johnny Weir."
While "all the official stuff is done," the stylish star himself Tweeted, "Johnny and Victor will have a large wedding in July 2012 to celebrate with friends and family," adds the rep.
"Marrying Victor has been the greatest moment in my life and I will work very hard to make him proud and happy," Weir said in a statement. "As an added benefit to all this joy, marriage gives your skin an amazing glow. I look forward to making a home for my family in Bergen County, New Jersey, and introducing my world of glitter and Faberge eggs to Victor."

If celebs like Bethenny Frankel and Vince Neil thought
they were going to have it easy competing on Skating with the Stars, they're in for a surprise – especially when it comes to judge and former Olympian Johnny Weir.
"I'm not going to be soft on [the contestants]," Weir told PEOPLE Tuesday at the launch of the Kardashian pre-paid Mastercard at Pacha N.Y.C. "I suppose I'd be Simon Cowell, but with a lot of Paula [Abdul] underneath."
Furthermore, the 26-year-old U.S. figure skating champ says he'll be a stickler for details. "I'm all for the theatrics and the beauty of figure skating, but at the same time, I'm an Olympian twice-over," he says. "I'm going to judge the technique the way it should be judged."

Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir is making a big leap.
The three-time U.S. champion – who recently declared war with fellow skater Evan Lysacek – has been keeping very busy off the ice.
"I'm going to record a song in May, just for fun," Weir, 25, told PEOPLE at the Ice Theater of New York, where he opened the season on April 29. "I know I'm not a legitimate, real singer, but I can still rock it like Britney."
The song, called "Dirty Love," came about when a producer approached him after the Olympics, and Weir's got big dreams for it.

When skating rivals Evan Lysacek and Johnny Weir were battling for a spot on the Olympic podium at the Vancouver Winter Games in February, Weir remarked that showdown would be a great "catfight."
The dust-up intensified this week off the ice as Olympic gold medalist Lysacek, competing on Dancing with the Stars, and Weir, a three-time U.S. Champion, traded slurs and barbs.
"We are at war," Weir told PEOPLE on Thursday. "My claws are out."

Johnny Weir is fired up over comments by a pair of Canadian broadcasters who suggested his costumes and "body language" set a bad example for male skaters and joked he may have to take a gender test.
"I'm not somebody to cry about something or to be weak about something," Weir, 25, told a press conference in Vancouver on Wednesday. "I felt very defiant when I saw these comments."
Last week, broadcasters Claude Mailhot and Alain Goldberg of RDS, a French-language sports channel in Quebec, mused on air if Weir was unfavorably judged during one of his typically flamboyant routines because he wore a semi-see-through pink and black outfit.
