Hoda Kotb is engaged, and the wedding bells are ringing loud and clear! The ‘Today’ show co-host is already thinking about what her wedding might look like and when it might happen.
Kotb, who got engaged to her longtime boyfriend Joel Schiffman over the weekend, opened up to People about what her special day might look like. The couple is definitely itching to get the festivities going.
“I sort of think we probably want to do it sooner than later, because what are we waiting for?,” Kotb revealed. She also thinks they might be looking to scratch a travel itch in the process of getting hitched.
“I kind of think we might do a destination wedding,” she continued. “We may go back to the place we were engaged. We haven’t thought about it too much, but we might do something like that. The place is special to us.”
It’s not about the “bells and whistles” for Kotb and Schiffman. They’re hoping to add more sentimentality to the day rather than just making things sparkly. “Nothing we do is about bells and whistles in that way, so it always sort of meant something. Something special to our relationship, in Mexico,” she explained.
And as long as the guests are happy, Kotb is happy. “All I want it to be is fun and happy and I just want everybody to feel easy breezy. No coordinated bridesmaids. Come as you are. That’s the theme of the rest of my life,” she shared.
Schiffman proposed to Kotb over the weekend during an intimate dinner on the beach.
