Hoda Kotb wants to wait to have the perfect wedding
The news anchor and television personality can't wait to marry fiancé Joel Schiffman and whilst the wedding has been postponed amidst the coronavirus pandemic, she would rather wait for everyone to be able to attend their destination wedding

She said: "We were supposed to have it a month from right now. I mean, that was our big master plan, Joel and me. And we were going to do it at a tropical destination and then we decided we were going to wait ... Who knows when people are going to be flying or feel comfortable flying? So, I thought, 'Is that a good idea or should we just maybe do a small wedding?' So, we may."

And the 56-year-old star is happy to wait until next summer so she can have the wedding she wants.
Speaking to E!'s Daily Pop, she added: "I love sunshine and a summer feel ... I'm the happiest when it's warm and my toes are in the sand. So, we may just wait until next summer and do it here on the East Coast, or if things get better, which we hope and pray they will, then maybe we'll strike out and go to some warm, tropical place."
Meanwhile, Hoda previously confessed she is “bummed” she is having to postpone her wedding.
She said: "We are kind of guessing that it will [get postponed]. It was a destination wedding, which would mean people getting on planes. We were kind of holding out to see what could happen, but the destination that we were going to is turning into one of the hot spots. So it looks like we may have to postpone. We're kinda bummed about that because the place we were going is, like, our favourite place on Earth. We love it there. I know we should say, 'Who cares? It doesn't matter.' But we waited a long time, so I sure hope we get to have it. I don't know when.”
