Hayden Panettiere and her future husband Wladimir Klitschko have decided to postpone their wedding. The aim is to have the groom’s brother to the wedding, which is difficult while his home country of Ukraine is facing the current civil unrest. His brother, Vitali, is involved in the reform efforts in the country.
In the last six months, the Heroes star’s future brother-in-law has become one of the major figures in the reformation efforts. She hopes that the country will find democracy and justice by the end of the conflict, although has not spoken much more about it. Klitschko’s brother has placed himself in the running for the presidency, and an election is still to take place.
The engagement was announced in October 2013, but there was not a date set at the time. The pair had been dating since 2009, which a short break in 2011. The original reason for no date being set was because of her business schedule. She is currently filming Nashville, and found it very hard to work around that.
When the 24-year-old spoke out about her views on the fighting, she made it clear that at the core her and her fiance support the same goals and want the same things. On the surface, they are very different people and have opted for different careers in life. However, their moral and personal views have helped make the surface differences smaller.
Panettiere and her fiance have decided it is best to postpone their wedding until the Ukraine situation is at rest. There is no telling how long this will take, but the couple has announced that they have time. The important thing is that everyone they would like to be in attendance has that chance to be there, and that includes Klitschko’s brother.
There was never an official date announced to the public, so it is unclear whether there was even a date set in the first place. The new date has not been announced, but that will be difficult to state due to the situation. It could take a few months for the situation to be at a restful point, but it could also take some years.
Despite not having a date set in stone, Panettiere has decided on her look for the day. While she wants to be sophisticated and classy, she also acknowledges that she is young and wants to make a note of that. She is opting for beach waves for a hairstyle, which will give the youthful, sexy look that she craves for the day. The 24-year-old has not shared details of the dress, just like many other celebrity brides.
The theme and highlights of the event have also been a big secret. She recently teased that color will be a big part because she enjoys that, but nothing else. The couple has been very quiet on their relationship, so it makes sense that their day has been too. This is nothing like the upcoming Kim Kardashian and Kanye West wedding. However, for now, the wedding has been postponed, which is something both Klitschko and Panettiere have agreed upon until there is some peace in Ukraine.
